“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!
The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.
The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!
The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.
Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!
