Hat alles prima funktioniert. Christophe ist sehr kommunikativ und hilfsbereit. Er spricht englisch und französisch. Das Boot ist wie beschrieben ausgestattet und Christophe stellt eine Kühlbox mit Eiswürfeln. Also gerne wieder.

Excellent charter in the beautiful Ionian. September is an excellent time to visit with the sea at its warmest and consistent afternoon winds make for some amazing sailing. The yacht, new this year, was perfectly clean on arrival. I would recommend Ionian catermerans to anyone, they made the whole process very smooth and were welcoming and friendly throughout.
