April 2017 Charter ~ Note from the Broker
I just got off the phone with the charterers who sang your praises so nicely I got goose bumps! They called on speaker phone to tell me what a truly wonderful experience it was.
The best vacation, wonderful experience, educational,awesome, the itinerary, the diving - Bret you are an excellent dive instructor,Mallory you cooking was amazing and a true culinary experience. Amanda how nice you are and your always friendly smile, so pleasant and how you wouldn’t let them lift a finger... How nice the boat was.Mrs. said there were tears and hugs at the end and the only negative comment they had was that they are now fully depressed being off the boat.
January 2017 - Group taking scuba lessons on Tellstar!

We were THRILLED with the charter, the best one ever! We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!
Kind regards, Mr. K.June 9-13, 2016 ~ Bahamas Family Charter
We had a wonderful time! The crew were great with the kids, and I am hoping to re-book them in the future on the same boat.
I continue to put the yacht forward and think it’s a fantastic option for families.
April 12-15, 2016 ~ Bahamas ~ Tandem with Power Yacht Seaglass
The crews were top notch. They worked well together and all very accommodating.
We used a charter service, "fly the whale" for the transport to Staniel. The sea plane made it so easy.
Thanks so much for all the help!
JAN 2016 CHARTER
We all came on this trip with the same idea: to relax with our spouses and each other in this beautiful part of the world. We had no idea what to expect from the boat, the crew, the weather, etc. We could not have predicted how profoundly you (Bret, Mallory, Susie) have affected all of us this week and how grateful we are for the tremendous effort, talent, skill, and care you have given us. YOU have made this trip what we all wanted it to be and we could not have enjoyed it more. We all look forward to many more trips, as long as you all will be there.

|Mallory, Chad, and Bret,|
We had a fantastic week aboard the Tellstar. I have to say it was the most adventurous vacation ever. Between swimming & scuba with the sharks and hiking through mangroves, we managed to still have time to relax with the iguanas and drink the wine! We can’t wait to hopefully see you all again next year.
23-28 May, Abacos Islands Bahamas
Note from broker:
The guests had a fantastic time on board Tell Star. They said Mallory was amazing and they wanted to take her home with them. Thank you so much!
I left my job, my duties, and my salary
To have a week of the most incredible food
All prepared by the beautiful Mallory.
I left my jeans, my make up, my jewelry and hair stylist
So I could be guided by the magnificent Tyler.
I left my apartment, my routine, my kids and my dad
So I could sail for a while with Captain Chad.
You made this vacation wonderful, never took us astray
Except for that one day stranded in Hatchet Bay.
But in all seriousness, from the bottom of my heart
Tell Star is amazing, the Bahamas are beautiful
Yet Mallory, Tyler, and Chad are the very best part!!!
Floating, sidelong glance at the
Joyous fiery sunrise passed
The hell hole of Hatchet Bay
We dream infinite leisure, sharks no
Matter, Chad and Tyler manage the sea
And our lofty expectations simultaneously
Whilst Mallory plies us with pure
Loving gastronomy & immaculate joy!
Mario & Susie
I eat all over the world, but I am never quite as happy as when I am basking on the Tellstar with Chef Mallory in charge of all things delicious. Chef Mal makes healthy tasty sexy food that makes the Tellstar and her kitchen one of my fave destinations in the world, wherever it floats ….. as often as I can be there, I am there.
31st January - 6 February 2015 BVI
Wow! What an incredible experience this week! The Tellstar crew made our 25th anniversary party unforgettable. The food, the water sports, the scenery, and the hospitality were far beyond our hopes and expectations. Thank you for such a fun time! We hope our paths cross again. Steve and Mary-Kay
It's hard to articulate our experience except to say perfect location, perfect yacht and most importantly perfect crew. Chad, Mallory and Tyler are so pleasant and so organized. They anticipated all of our needs and treated us better than any resort. We'll always remember our 25th anniversary in the BVI. The experiences and awesome food and drinks will fuel our stories to others for years. Thank you guys! Becky and Marty.
Feedback to broker:
Our trip couldn't have been any more fabulous. The crew made it more than special and we feel like we've made new friends!!! Their professionalism, knowledge, hospitality, and the amazing culinary expertise of Mallory were unsurpassed. And, of course ... the fun factor!!! Thank you for turning around a not so good situation and making it such a memorable and wonderful time for us! I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to you but bear in mind that they will want to sail with Tellstar!!!”

Excerpts from letter written to boat owner:
“I have two sons, 19 and 17. I wanted them to have a great time with tons of activities. I read about Chad, Tyler and Mallory and loved your boat so this seemed like a good fit. It was beyond my optimism. You have real live jewels with these guys! My son and Chad caught fish that was on the table an hour later prepared by Tyler. When we were in Anegada, Tyler brought delicious spiny lobster for dinner. He worked so hard, plus entertaining us. Chad is the consummate Captain. Very dedicated, and available for us to enjoy all of his ideas, vast travel experience and take us on water activities.
You know these men well, but I am so pleased that I want you to hear just how great they are on board. Of course, they are both darling…as well as intelligent, educated and full of ideas. We are a very social threesome and they joined in with us. As a mom, I loved their participation because I was able to have some down time to myself.
Your boat was new, immaculate and sophisticated. We all thought it was the nicest one we had ever chartered. Thank you for making available the ‘the best trip ever.’ We did not want to leave!” MarcieBroker Comments May 2014 Charter
"When I spoke with my client he was still in vacation mode. He said they had such a fabulous time that it is hard to get back in the "work' mode. He sent me photos that the crew took and it seems like everyone was having fun! Dancing on the beach kept them entertained. They are happy with the trip and don't be surprised if they come back!
I can tell you they are all still basking in happiness!"9th Anniversary Charter
Chad and Tyler's love of life and adventure is infectious and their epic experiences from around the world are positively inspiring. They were up for everything we desired and showed us plenty of phenomenal scenery and activities along the way, including teaching us an awesomely addictive beach game. Kayaking, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, sailing - you name it, we did it - sometimes in combination! They are avid fisherman, so chances are high you'll savor some freshly caught seafood deliciously prepared by Ty.
Chad makes the best painkiller in the islands and a pretty mean margarita to boot, so watch out or you might end up jumping off the roof of Willie T's! We enjoyed swapping stories, relaxing, and most especially remembering what's truly significant in life.
We cannot thank these extraordinary brothers enough for making our 9th anniversary a genuinely incredible experience and we look forward to sharing adventures together again soon.Honeymoon Couple 17-22 Mar SXMBroker Comments D - C&N:
