CAPTAIN WARREN DREFFIN
Warren is the son of Peter and Tina Dreffin aboard Freebird. His brother runs Rubicon, another cat in the family fleet. Warren grew up aboard a catamaran in the Bahamas and sailed to the South Pacific with his family in 2005. Since then, he has been schooled in photography and business administration while working in the scuba and water-sports industry. Free-diving for fresh fish and surfing great waves are his passions. You can bet his first hand knowledge of the Bahamas, not to mention his penchant for telling adventurous travel tales, assure you a memorable and rewarding vacation.
CHEF / MATE ASHLEY NIXON
Ashley started cooking as a hobby in college in 2005 and her hobby quickly grew into a passion. She loves food, and finding creative and delicious ways to prepare it soon became a part of life! She primarily cooks pescetarian cuisine, which includes fish and seafood. She lives a healthy and active lifestyle, and her cooking reflects that, preparing healthy but tasteful dishes. Her love of traveling and being on the water has led her to a fulfilling life cooking for guests on boats!
SWISH can accommodate 7 guests in 4 cabins. 3 Guest cabins have a queen size bed, shower and toilet. A mid ship center starboard Guest cabin has a single berth (shares head with the starboard forward cabin). Note this is 1 foot high for easy access. Electric fans in all cabins.
SWISH is fully air conditioned through out and can run all night on a dock (dockage fees usually $150 per night) Note - Limited AC available at anchor (2-3 hours) via generator if requested - mostly evening time. 6KW inverter is insufficient to run A/C all night, but usually the breezes from the trade winds, open hatches and electric fans are usually quite sufficient.
Crew has a separate head and shower.

|April 24-29, 2016 Incredible Experience|
From travel agent:
They had an AMAZING time and I think a few of their moments on the catamaran will be seared into their travel memory bank as such. They were so impressed with the captain and crew’s attention, the quality of the food, and especially the unique experience of eating conch for the first time). It was an incredible experience for them. Please extend my personal thanks to the crew for attending to their needs and for showing them such a good time.
30th Wedding Anniversary Charter - Nov 2015
Overall, how would you describe your charter?
Was the crew professional, congenial, and accommodating? Absolutely. Warren was knowledgeable and focused on trying to accommodate. Louise was almost always cooking up first rate meals while also navigating the nuances of our personal likes and dis-likes.
Was the yacht clean and well maintained?
Yes, Swish was beautiful boat and the Staterooms, the Galley and the Saloon were all clean and ready for their new guests when we arrived.
How did you find the quality and presentation of the meals? Outstanding, the food and the presentation showed pride and skill.
The boat was very nice...Warren and Louise were great. Louise is a very good cook..No reason to be worried about her culinary skills. Her meals were excellent right down to the presentation of the food.

|Note from broker:|
Thank you so much for the update on the charter (they swam with a wild dolphin, hand fed a hawksbill turtle, caught 2 fish offshore under sail, engaged with 11 swimming pigs and 25 sharks at Staniel and dove the Thunderball Grotto).
I emailed Rosie half way through the charter to see how it was going and this was her reply "Amazing!!!!!!!!!"
We love to get those replies when our charter guests are onboard.
Thank you so much for taking care of them!
