(I only post this because I know you are the kind of guy who appreciates friendly ball busting and I couldn't let that lobbed ball just hang there.)

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

I will be posting specific complaints regarding Barefoot and their company soon. Pictures and specifics included... BEWARE this bunch... at best, a satisfactory experience is NOT guaranteed, especially if you're an owner with a boat in charter with them. Money and maintenance are of particular interest in this case. Those who have had good experiences or said glowing things about them... consider yourself fortunate. There are as many who say just the opposite.

Fixed it for you and Tim. Heh-heh.

And you're right - not lob should ever go unsmacked.

Hmmm.

Waiting, I'd love to hear this.

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!

Prove your case with some pics or go home.
Well they would have but the inverter was out so they could not charge there cell phones.
