The trip was great! It was absolutely relaxing and just an amazing experience overall. The yacht itself was beautiful - very spacious and clean. Yuri was the perfect captain, he explained the trip before we set out and was cool the entire time, let us all do our thing. The crew on board was also very nice - super helpful, set up our food for us, always willing to help us with photos or water or really anything we needed. My friends and I were highly satisfied with the experience and would 10/10 charter with Yuri again.
First and foremost, I would totally book with Yuri again! Thank you so much a wonderful 30th birthday experience.
Yuri is extremely prompt when it comes to booking. I sent a message to him and he responded in less than 15mins and I was able to communicate quickly with respect to booking and regarding any other questions I had that were not mentioned in booking details.
When we arrived at the marina (which was gated and was free parking) we were greeted by his shipmate, Vlad. Vlad was very helpful with regards to directing us to the boat and lifting the containers onto the boat for us.
The boat itself was amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. My friends and I were completely impressed! It provided all the amenities you can ask for. It was clean, modern, there were towels, and a cooler stocked with ice for us. I had 10 friends and it fit us comfortably. The sound system was adequate for us to play music and Yuri had no problems with us blasting music and dancing. Vlad would help us with any needs from serving food or pouring our drinks. Very professional!
We cruised down Miami and Yuri stopped at an area and allowed us to jump off his boat! Amazing! He also had floaties for us to lounge in the water. The inside of the boat was spotless as well and the bathroom was clean. We didn't utilize the bed or the inside couches but they are available if that suits your needs.
We got stopped by the Coast Guards at one point of the journey and Yuri had ALL his documents so he is legit and isn't a scam. So that really gave me a sense of relief! All in all, thank you so much for everything! I gave him 4 instead of a 5 only because he was so serious and I wanted him to smile more (which I told him :-) ) Again, thank you so much Yuri and Vlad for making my birthday very special and unforgettable!
Everything went well, no hidden surprises.
Yuri was great and he had a helper who catered to any of my guest needs.
This was booked last minute only 2 1/2 hours before we departed and it was still perfect.
I would book again in future
