Captain did a phenomenal job! It was an absolute pleasure working with him, he was so good with sending me pics and staying in contact. I would highly recommend this yacht and book again without hesitation. They had a fantastic time and could not fault the captain. She gave him a 10/10 and thought he was amazing. They enjoyed the food, and admitted they indulged- it was part of their vacation. This was their first charter, and thanks to their experience on PURA VIDA they are now “Boat People”- as she put it.

Hi Rod,

I am pleased to say the return of my client for her second charter of PURA VIDA was an enormous success. She is a very experienced and frequent Charterer of motor yachts, at up to 3 times price of PURA VIDA,

She was last aboard in March 2019 in the Caribbean with the previous Owner and Crew.

I am delighted that her report indicates the high standards for both PURA VIDA as a yacht, and the Owner’s commitment to exemplary crew, remain!

Charterer comments:

“The crew are phenomenal. For a smaller boat this crew rocks it! They work great together to make for a seamless experience. The boat is in impeccable shape. The Captain put together a wonderful itinerary for our trip that catered to everyone in our group. The food was fantastic. The head stew made sure our every need was met and made arrangements for everything we wanted to do so that we didn’t have to lift a finger. The bosun Charlie was fantastic. She handled the tender with ease and was very kind to everyone. Love to see a woman in that role!!! A++.”

Hi Rod,

I spoke with Mr.... yesterday and they had a wonderful experience onboard Pura Vida. He made a special point to tell me that the crew was particularly good and the capt was fabulous.The meals were incredible and everything was just perfect. He also really appreciates that the owner allowed him to bring his own boat along for the charter and it worked out very well having it there. All-in-all, a perfect charter.

Thank you for your assistance and I am sure Mr..... will be back to do it again. He has also referred us to one of his friends who is now interested in Pura Vida as well. More to come -

Cheers,
