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.

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!

There are as many who say just the opposite.
Hmmm.

Waiting, I'd love to hear this.

(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'm not out to defend either side. I understand the desire to post negative after a negative experience and then the other side defending. I own a vacation property in the Bahamas. I know all too well, island life is shall we say very laid back, nothing is urgent. A propane tank that hasn't been filled in over a year, empty cistern, burnt out light bulbs, doors that don't lock,.....

The real measure of a good service provider is in their response to problems. The best company will have problems, but it's how they rectify them.

My question to SamSpade since you came to defend yourself is "Did you make a reasonable effort to fix the problems when you were notified, or did you just blow it off?" What about the short drive over the hill? Too much effort? Has the novelty warn off?

"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
