Barry & his brother, Mike, were great hosts. Barry had a lot of helpful information about his boat, Trimarans, & sailboats generally. He also had great information about the area and things to do and see around town.
It was a lot of fun working with Johnny to help his buddy Carlo in setting up a surprise marriage proposal, and I'm SO glad that she said "YES!" I'm also glad that we were able to successfully dodge the weather that was threatening and that we were able to make sure that the bride to be wasn't scared on her first sail! I very sincerely hope that I get the chance to sail with these guys again, they were great! :-)
We chartered Jon and his yacht, the Pearson 33 (a.k.a Invictus) for a surprise proposal that occurred in December 2018. From the get-go, Jon was responsive and active in the planning, helping make insightful and much needed recommendations about sailing. Jon is not your average captain. He went above and beyond on my charter to make sure everyone involved had a good time. He monitored the weather for us closely, secured docking permission at a private yacht club, and handled the yacht expertly in the open water near the Golden Gate Bridge. Onboard his yacht, there was complimentary snacks and soft beverages, and a bluetooth compatible stereo system. Everything was tidy and clean when we boarded. Safe to say, the proposal would not have been a success without Jon's effort and help. We will call Jon again for our next charter, regardless of the occasion. I highly recommend Jon and his yacht for anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area who are looking for a fun and affordable way to sail and enjoy the sea.
Lee is a true professional. Was happy to change our day because of bad weather even though he drove an hour to meet us at the dock. Boat was great and easy on fuel. Thanks Lee. You have my highest recommendation.
