We had a fabulous time and couldn’t be more pleased with our charter aboard the beautiful Aftica. Paul and Marguerite are top notch and went above and beyond to ensure we experienced a trip to remember. We’ll be back!

Juliet and Sarah, S/Y Aftica, Crewed Leopard 45 Antigua, January 2015.

Hi Paul and Margarite,
Thank you for the lovely message and the reminders of our stay with you. It was such a wonderful introduction to the Caribbean, one which has ignited a desire to return many more times.
Although it has been difficult to translate the fun I had with you to friends back home, the stories you shared have helped to paint the picture of you both.
