Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again
Hi all, been using this site as a reference for some time, never joined but came across this thread and thought, it's time so this is a first post ....
Just back from Barefoot, St. Vincent on down to PSV and have to say it was a blast, literally ... 2 reefs all week, 25 guesting to 35k daily with 3+M seas, loved it. Kids 18/23 said it was the best family vacation ever, wife prefers calmer waters though!! (BVI in May)
Anyway, Barefoot did everything quite well. The boat was ready and clean though the provisions we'd ordered didn't translate well so ended up getting the correct items in route ($$$). Checkout found a repaired head gushing water, they had it resolved within the hour and otherwise equipment was fine. Had a look at the other boats and all appeared in ok shape, ours was a 7 yo Beneteau 434, well behaved.
The Barefoot staff with all great, had smiles, were easy to talk to and seems to be quite proud of their part in the company.
I was shocked at the bad experienced mentioned here and personally would recommend Barefoot anytime, and in fact will return, but not so close to the Christmas winds!
