"I took the family to Palma Mallorca, for the mid-term break while my seven year-old granddaughter was off school. We chartered a lovely Oceanis 343 through Inter Yacht Charter and day-sailed in the Bay of Palma when the winds permitted. It is a lovely city and the Base pontoon was adjacent to the old town. As is usual, the arrangements put in place in advance, by Jeremy and his team worked out splendidly. Here we are out in the bay while my granddaughter takes a turn at the helm."
Tom Tonge & Family from Rathmines, Dublin - November 2012
"Our annual Autumn sailing adventure this year took us to Kos in the Dodocanese Islands in Greece where we chartered a fine Bavaria 46, through www.interyachtcharter.com
and sailed to Kalymnos, Leros, Lipso in lovely winds and sunny climes. The islands are all different. Kalymnos is busy and bustling. Lakke on Leros, by contrast, is very quiet and Lipsi is almost asleep. The picture shows Barney, our port stern man, selecting a sponge for his inamorata in the home of sponges; Pothia on Kalymnos.
We had a lovely trip this year and all the arrangements Inter Yacht Charter made for us were impeccable. Thanks to Jeremy and his team for a great sailing holiday."
Tom Tonge & Friends from Rathmines, Dublin - October 2012
I wanted to tell a little of our Family Vacation. We sailed Brazil, at the islands of Angra Dos Reis. Sergio my husband was the Skipper, myself and 5 children for 1 week. It was the first time we all went "camping on the water". The truth is, that it was a Spectacular Family Experience!
The sailboat was exactly what we had leased, and as Jeremy helped us countless times when I wrote asking him everything I could possibly think of with many of the practical things. Flavia and Angra people were also very friendly and helped to keep us on the ground and assistance like shopping for food on the boat.
But the best was the beauty of Ilha Grande, the beaches and the many other islas. The calm waters, allowing us to see the fish and swim in the sea, almost always alone. What we liked the most was Jurubaiba Island, Lagoa Verde and Lagoa Azul and the very quiet sleepy Saco do Ceu. The kids and I had a great time snorkeling, for them it was their first time. I'd love to repeat this experience in the future!
Anita & Sergio from Santiago - September 2012
"The trip I'm glad to state beat everyones expectations, the amenities and space available on the Lagoon 450 are quite impressive, to say we were spoiled would be an understatement! Both Skipper and Host were excellent, professional and above all friendly, hat's off to yachtvoyage for being a top notch organization.
Croatia in particular the Elaphiti islands (aka Dalmation coast) is remarkable, the proximity of the islands is something I'm not used to, in under 5-6 hours or less you are at a new destination, this allows for maximum exposure to different ports in minimum time (7 days), we even made it as far as Hvar.
Attached is a group photo and one of Dubrovnik, it's the type of trip that makes working tolerable ;)
My thanks for your patience and guidance during the chartering process. Certainly I hope we can plan a trip in the future!
Anthony P of NY - September 2012
"I am willing to confirm IYC did an excellent job finding the right boat for us to sail in Croatia, all was perfectly scheduled, thanks for your professionalism!
We will definitely contact you next time we need to rent a boat for sailing!
Chris Debove of France - August 2012
"In July I sailed from Barcelona for 1 week, with my teenage children. WE had the best holiday yet...even better that skiing they said!!!
Contact with Jeremy from the outset at booking enquiry stage was a good indicator of the professionalism of the company.
It also indicated what was to come with regard to how my questions were answered and also the advice I received. His knowledge and experience was fantastic. The Boat was well equipped and clean.
Our Skipper, Carlos, was great. He instilled confidence and a feeling of safety which was very important to me, travelling with kids. But most importantly he had a sense of fun and ensured that we had a holiday while teaching us!!!
In fact the overall feeling I brought away from my holiday was........ I had just experienced what customer service should be about!!! Jeremy, and our Skipper Carlos are experienced and professional in what they do and they used this to assist me in arranging and enjoying a fantastic week.
It was too short....
We will be back......."
Trish, Daniel and Sarah Bantry IRE - July 2012
"The negotiation for the boat was easy and efficient for departure from Pomer/Pula. A few things needed to be fixed on the boat but they were all sorted out quickly, professionally and with good humour.
In the last 30 years I have sailed on S coast of England, N France, been across Biscay, sailed often in Gallicia, Med, Italy, Sardinia, Aeloian, Corsica, Greece and Turkey. It was a real and unexpected pleasure to sail in Croatia where I had been before many moons ago but as a landlubber. Just the right thing for family cruising, no great distances, crystal clear waters, bargain prices and pleasant people. As an example, I needed to stock up the boat in Pomer before leaving but the supermarket (“Market”) in the marina was closed so I walked to the village. The lady in the village supermarket said she would find it difficult to deliver to the marina. I was about to do a small shopping that I could carry to the marina when she proposed a solution. She would lend me her car! So I was then able to do a really large shopping…… We went windsurfing, visited the Blue Grotto in Cres, went up the Zaljev Rasa to Trget, stopped in the lagoon in Punat and visited the old monastery, Illovik, Silba (must spend more time there next time) , Olib, Dugi Otok, then Premuda and of course Mali Losinj on the way back to Pomer. Then we spent the last evening at a jazz concert in the Pula Arena (Amphitheatre). Some good sailing and interesting places.
The pleasure of being able to drop anchor overnight in a peaceful bay in August with no crowds, or the entrepreneurial sellers of fresh bread and fruit in the morning. That takes a lot of beating. We had a great time."
Andrew G & Family, Pula - August 2012
"Back to our everyday life after a pleaseant break in Greece, sailing with our Sun Odyssey 42DS. The yacht was in perfect conditions and all was supervised before our departure to ensure a really amazing sailing through the Cyclades pushed by a fierce Meltemi wind. We appreciated a good organization and kind attention when few inconveniences on our check-in were solved quickly and proactively. Regarding the trip and the islands, we could discover really nice hidden villages and beaches, the local people were kind and funny and we could also earn a few kilos enjoying the greek cousine, salads, yogurts and ouzos J

"Another amazing break organized by Inter Yacht Charter. This trip was luxury from beginning to end, the boat was very comfortable, the crew amazing. I highly recommend a cruise around Croatia with this crew!
Martin Travis, Split, Croatia - July 2012
"Jeremy at Inter Yacht has helped us arrange trips so many times now that he’s almost my best friend! Once again we chose to sail in Turkey this summer and were delighted with the boat, the organization and most importantly the delights of sailing in Turkish waters. There is so much to do and see as well as beautiful water and sometimes exciting wind!"
Deborah Prince, Turkey - July 2012
"What are you waiting for from Yachting. If you are not a Fedor Konyukhov of course– comfortable yacht, good and favorable wind, sun, good friends and tasty dinner tonight. And we had all of it.
Lagoon 380 is very comfortable and it’s very easy to control it. All the week the wind was about 15-25 knots and mostly Beam reach or broad reach so we used spinnaker or butterflyed with mainsail and jib. And of Course Northern Dalmatia is very Beautiful and perfect for yachting – there are too many islands with small bays, where you could stay on anchor and have a lunch or some small villages with few restaurants where you could have dinner, where there are no tourists, shops, souvenirs and only you, your boat & beautiful views. And of course old towns of Croatia which are very popular with the tourist. So I know that we’ll come back to Croatia again.
Jeremy, thank you once again, and hope to contact you next winter with our new voyage plans.
С Уважением \ Best regards"
Anton Vostrikov, Kotor, Montenegro to Dubrovnik, Croatia - June 2012
"This was our ninth year of 'skippered' sailing , and our first in Spanish waters. The Marina at Denia is easily accessible , with good facilities ( supermarket is a 6 minute cab ride away ) — don't forget to return your security card to toilet/shower block, and collect the deposit before you leave! The staff at the Marina, were most helpful. The yacht was in good condition in all respects, and sailed (when we had enough wind) well.
Another first this year was our lady skipper. Aside from one seasoned sailor, the rest of our group are at best gifted amateurs and therefore the need for a well qualified skipper is paramount. She was excellent in all aspects of yachtsman-ship, and a good controlling influence on the more adventurous amongst us….…
Her knowledge of the area is also first class.
All in all a very good experience from start to finish.
Fraser Jennings, Denia - June 2012
"the trip was very good even though it rained a lot. the boat was very spacious, very nice places and all the charm of brazil .. thank you also for answering mails quickly with our questions. hope to make another trip in the future
Pelayo Gumucio, Brazil - May 2012
"Jeremy and IYC were extremely helpful in setting up our Charter. They answered all of our questions and provided good guidance for us while we were visiting Brasil. The people at the Base, Flavia and the Captain, Paulo, were wonderful people to hang out with and learn from, about the local area and culture. Given the opportunity, we would come back to see them and Angra dos Reis over and over.
It’s not the most popular place for Brasilians, because to enjoy the beaches you need to have a boat of some kind to get there. The result is a feeling of exclusivity and privacy in a natural paradise that even in our dreams, we did not imagine.
Thank you all for your help!"
Adam & Amy Gray, Angra dos Reis - May 2012
"Thank you all for a most enjoyable trip, and particularly Neill for all the arrangements.
I have attached a picture of the motley crew, and some bloke who offered to do a skippered charter next year if we are unsure what to do.
Best wishes from Roger (the diver)"

"When we thought about chartering a boat in Brazil, I started to search in the internet and I found IYC. It was our first time chartering a boat. Everything worked just perfect! I can say now -very happy- that it was one Of the best vacations ever! Jeremy, at IYC, was very helpfull and allways available for us. Now, we are looking forward to our next charter, probably in Panamá next year!
Pablo Gil Mallarini, Brazil - March 2012
"With only 2 days notice, Jeremy at Inter Yacht Charter was able to put together all the arrangements for a fantastic and memorable charter. Cook, Skipper and provisions were all waiting for us when we arrived. We could not have been looked after better by Inter Yacht Charter or the fantastic crew.
Thank you !"

"We needed a serious charter operator for our business when searching for bareboats in the Canary Islands. Among many, we came across Inter Yacht Charter. They heve been extremely helpful and service-minded, giving us good offers on a variety of yachts, they have highly professional and friendly staff, and not the least; it led to two weeks of wonderful sailing in the Canary Islands.
We're now looking at sailing in the Mediterranian, and Inter Yacht Charter is our first choice of charter operator, based on our first experience with them."

"Our trip to Belize was all you could ask for: adventurous, beautiful, and safe. Many thanks to Jeremy at Inter Yacht for being impeccably organized and communicative, and also to everyone at the TMM Base. We couldn't have imagined a boat in better condition than Hope, and a destination with so much to offer. We especially enjoyed our inland adventure which organized by the base: we visited the Belize Zoo and went cave tubing. And we'll certainly never forget the dolphins that raced just along our bow, or the manatees we saw coming up for air along the reef.
I think we plan to take a break from family Christmas sailing in 2012 after three years of sailing in a row, Aaron and I might plan a trip for sailing in the Med (Croatia?) sometime in the next year so I'll be sure to be in touch.
Liz Nelson - Belize December/January 2012
"We chartered in Croatia this year and had a wonderful weeks cruising on the Dalmatian coast. Inter Yacht Charter arranged a splendid boat in Split for my party of seven and all the arrangements Jeremy put in place for us beforehand fell beautifully into place at the required time. Croatia is a lovely place to sail and we threaded our way from Split to Dubrovnik stopping in some idyllic islands, Brac, Vis, Korcula and the crystal clear water was warm enough to swim, off the small town of Slano on the mainland. We passed this beauty anchored just off the island as we sailed into Korcula town. Thanks to Jeremy and his team for a memorable October sail this year."
Tom Tonge and friends from Dublin. - Split & Dubrovnik, October 2011
We are so happy!!! and very greatfull to all of your team for hospitality, highly qualified team and amazing holidays!
We spent wonderful time on the yacht and made giga's of photos under water and above:)
As for the trip. we all consider it as best summer trip ever, We had lot's of fun, got relaxed and refreshed in blue Adriactic sea. The crue is very nice, We felt safe and secure with Konstantin and Nikolaii, Also I would like to thank you and Katerina for attentive management."
Anastasia Borisova of Moscow - Dubrovnik & Montenegro, late July 2011
"This is the fifth time we arrange our sailing holiday with Inter Yacht Charter and once again the arrangements were perfect and everything we expected was as promised. Turkey is a fantastic place to sail with something for everyone, beautiful water, great wind for those who like a challenge as well as areas of calm cruising. Beautiful coast lines, historical sites everywhere and some incredibly interesting places to shop and eat. Gocek (our starting place) was idyllic and charmingly unspoilt...and facing a sailing area which is environmentally protected. This gives challenges for mooring but equally is protecting a beautiful location for future generations of sailors. What a fantastic holiday!"
Dr Debbie Prince, Directeur Général - Gocek, Turkey - July 2011
"I’m really pleased to endorse your service, after our wonderful week in Turkey. You stepped into the breach when we needed a boat at short notice, and you found us a big cat which was exactly what we needed for a very picky group! The trip from the base at Marmaris was truly memorable, with wonderful sailing, beautiful coastline and very nice local people wherever we stopped – and all arrangements from the base, including airport transfers, supplies on board and the standard of maintenance of the boat were perfect. Your charter brokerage service was also perfect – all the documentation and our different queries were dealt with very quickly and efficiently, so we really had everything we needed for a great time. The only regret was that we didn’t book for several more weeks! Thanks from all of us."
John Forsyth & Friends - Marmaris, Turkey - June 2011
"Croatian Charter was very good! Yacht was very clear and comfortable. Ms Ivana is very polite lady. Thank you, for good organization our trip."
Ruslan Gladyshev - Split, Croatia June 2011
"We found 2 different Turkeys – one with small dirty beaches, similar hotels, drunk tourists, importunate traders and another Turkey with beautiful bays, pretty islands, small villages with very tasty restaurants. Friendly owners of restaurants will help you to moor, then serve you in the restaurant, then sell something in a minimarket and again help you to leave marina.
We visit Turkey at the beginning of June and travel in Gokova Bay (Near Bodum). This is really very nice place for sailing - strong but steady wind about 20-30 kn, and at the east side of the bay waves could be 1,5-2,5 metres, however you could always find safety place for mooring and have dinner in the restaurant were you’ll be the only visitor. The water is very clear, already warm, but still could refresh you after several hours on board under sun. So I’d like to advise such kind of vacations for anyone who likes sea, sun & yachts. Hope to repeat it again…."
Anton Vostrikov & Friends - Bodrum, May/June 2011
"We were so pleased with the professionalism, organization, and overall quality of Inter Yacht Charter. The service was detail oriented, timely and friendly, from the moment Jeremy and I first corresponded via email. The boat was excellently cared for and in fantastic condition. We are already planning for our next charter through IYC"

"We had a wonderful time with the Sail fish Catamaran in the Maldives. For scuba diver lovers there is no better combination than a private liveaboard and the Maldives. Having the chance to dive only special sites away from other divers makes the difference. The food was correct nothing fancy, not a great variety just correct. The Crew was nice, willing to satisfy any requirements. The Divemaster knew the sites and cared for security. We had a nice vacation an eager to do it again either in the Maldives or other part of the world."
Sergio Korzin and family - Maldives, February 2011
"When we chose to go sailing to Canary Islands in January, we hoped to get rest from continental winter, but we would have never dreamed about the weather being so perfect as it was the whole week. We had great fun sailing on the big waves of Atlantic ocean in 20 to 25 kts wind. Roman, technician at our base, was always very helpful with everything and always gave us good sailing tips. One day we were lucky to observe whales as they spent some time swimming with our ship. The only thing we regret is that we didn't stay longer, because one week is just not enough to explore Canaries."
Jan Kovar, Slovak Republic - Tenerife, Canaries January 2011
"We very enjoyed short cruise with Omega yacht owned by Moniques family. She was excellent captain, accompanied by her son Matias. My wife Ona and I were celebrating 25th marriage anniversary and our friends Remigijus and Rasa had their mentioned celebration a month before. We had sailing from Puerto Mont Chili round National Nature reserve fjords. Amazing trip mostly in un-habitant land. We love Chile. Chile is amazing country – we call it “The model of the Worlds Nature wonders”, because in this country you may find Norway or New Zealand fjords, lakes and mountains as in Austria or Swiss, not even mentioning volcano’s. And this is combined with long Siberian distances between villages. Absent of mobile connection on the board was advantage that helps forget the “world problems”, and personal affairs, that seemed too small to remember. But Omega comfort with pisco, good wine, food and kind crew made us feel safe as at home. We would like to return…

"We thoroughly enjoyed our sailing trip. It was pretty hot and it did rain quite alot. I gather the main season starts in Nov. We only had 1 day sailing on the last day. No wind. The boat was adequate. We seemed to be the only boat about and very few tourists which made it more special. We sailed S from Ko Chang to Ko Mac and Ko Kut . We'd have beakfast and lunch on the boat and dinner ashore. Often we were the only group having dinner at nice little Thai resorts. Yummy fresh fish, good food, lots of choice and cheap. Certainly a beautiful area, i hope it doesnt get too touristy. Will try and find a photo.
Fiona Buchanan & Friends - Koh Chang, Thailand October 2010
"We chartered again this year from www.interyachtcharter.com
and went to South Biscay which is great a place to cruise. We had a lovely boat a Dufour 38.5 which came in pristine condition courtesy of Pierre, the base Manager in Hendaye, who was most helpful to us in plotting our cruise and recommending places to overnight. We sailed to San Sebastian in Spain and were stormbound there in a F9 for 24 hrs. It is a culinary delight. When the storm cleared we sailed on to Getaria another delightful Basque town. In the photo our Fore-deck Man Mike, looks out over the strait in San Sebastian in the teeth of the storm.
Many thanks to Jeremy for his unerring arrangements which made our holiday so enjoyable.

"Gratitude! It was a great trip! I have traveled extensively in croatia and the Balkans over the last 20 odd years and have always wanted to do a cruise on a sail boat! As a sailor on San Francisco Bay, I love to sail in challenging situations but covet the idea of sailing on the enchanting coastline of Croatia! It was realized after working with you and our numerous needs as two SF families, one of which never sails! The 51ft Bavaria was a perfect choice, lots or cabins for parents and kids and solo for the skipper (who was great!!!!, Daniel was delightful! He was a great guide who enjoyed the company of the kids! He took us to the Devils Islands, Stari Grad, Vis etc and we had a terrific time and ate better than we could have in SF and sailed better than SF.
I would sail again w/ Danny and would rent a Bavaria again!!!
Thanks a million!!!"
Elizabeth Diaz - Croatia, August 2010
"The catamaran was a wonderful way to discover Turkey. We had an amazing 2 weeks full of new experiences and delightful memories. Turkey is beautiful, crystal waters, lovely people, wonderful places to anchor and soak up the beautiful scenery. I can't begin to describe the diversity of rocks and plants! The wind when it blew made for great sailing and when it was calm the cruising was easy...so much to see. We found some of the large cities really interesting too. A perfect blend of holiday; sailing, sun, discovery and relaxation. Jeremy and his team were great and the base team very helpful.
Looking forward to the next trip!!!
Dr Debbie Prince of Switzerland - Turkey July 2010
"We had a wonderful week sailing in South Brittany in mid-September this year. We were a crew of eight aboard a Feeling 44 which we chartered through Inter Yacht Charter. From the planning stage early in May we received the most helpful professional attention from Jeremy. Every query I as skipper, raised with him from bedding to lifejackets to airport pick-up, he arranged with calm efficiency. We were collected at Nantes airport as he arranged and delivered to the yacht. His local Agent at Arzal Philippe, on the Vilaine estuary was most helpful and everything turned out precisely as Jeremy had planned for us. We sailed into the most beautiful places. From Arzal to Port du Crousty and up the Morbihan Sea to Vannes, south then to La Belle I’sle and ended up the Vilaine river at La Roche Bernard where you may catch us enjoying ourselves in the crew photograph on our last night in Brittany. It is a lovely place for a sailing holiday. Thanks to Jeremy and his team for putting the excellent infrastructure in place."

"It was two weeks of a great adventure! Days were incredibly sunny but it is nothing odd in Greece! Nights full of falling stars made us whish to come back in the next summer. The boats were ideal for our group, we had a great time resting aboard or exploring forgotten islands and bays that nobody was before! This is the delight of being free to choose where you sail. Katrina's support was very usefull.
Best regards and see you soon!

"Most time good weather, a lot of sun, sometimes rain, all time good wind F3-6. It is some kind of adventure to sail in Estonia: The harbours are in “Ex-Soviet-Style”, big piers in the middle of nowhere. Very few boats there, but people very friendly and helpful, speaking English. WLAN (Wi-fi) in all harbours. Harbours are cheap, about 16 Euro per day for a Bavaria 49. In Happsalu we stopped for one day, and we went to sauna with view over marina from the large sauna-windows – fantastic!! All together we sailed about 260 miles in 6 days. For the owner it was okay that we gave back the boat later Saturday afternoon – very comfortable, because we have been out late in Tallinn the night before.
It was a great trip. The communication with www.interyachtcharter.com was all time very good, and really easy going, with the owner of boat in Tallinn.
Thanks for everything! John" Deutsche Anwaltshotline

"We are just back from our Canary Islands adventure on a bare boat Bavaria 41. The sailing in the accelerator zones was exciting and challenging. Every day there was great wind and it was a delight. The islands we explored were unknown to us before as they are the least developed from a tourist point of view. This is the delight of being free to choose where you sail. The boat was in great shape and handled well. We had good support from the team in Tenerife with check in and advice of how to tackle the weather and sailing. All problems were solved professionally and speedily and we come back missing the sun and feeling ready to sail again with Inter Yacht!"
Dr Debbie Prince of Switzerland - Tenerife, Canaries July 2009
"We had a fabulous trip which will never be forgotten. It will be some time before we get all our photos together, but will most certainly send you some. Katerina was fantastic and provided lots of advice which turned out to be great. The whole process was very smooth.
The wives and girlfriends are adamant that they have the chance to come on the next trip which will require something larger. We really appreciate all your hard work trying to find the perfect boat. It was an unforgettable experience which we will be telling our grandchildren about.

Two trips in Caribbean Sea (2007, 2008) and this year (March 2009) in Thailand – Phang Nga Bay with famous destinations: Phuket, Ko Racha, Ko Phi Phi, Krabi, James Bond Rock, Sea Gipsy Village. Everything worked perfectly on the Bahia 46 Catamaran, Salicorne. The Yacht Charter staff at Yacht Haven Marina and the people in the restaurants and bars were extremely nice. Thailand is a sea with thousands of marvellous islands. The crew of the Catamaran Salicorne is fully satisfied."

"I could not have asked for a better crew, boat and location. Ali, Sharrif and Naji anticipated any desire we could possibly have. Sharrif even climbed coconut trees and picked fresh coconut for us to drink, caught a turtle with his hands for us to see and baked cakes. It was truly wonderful. We hope to be back one day.

"We are all back in Cape Town after a most fantastic charter. The yacht was impeccably clean and the skipper, Dan, was fantastic. The weather was, as predicted, almost flawless and the little cloud cover from time to time was actually welcome.
We spent very little time fishing but the first hour of the first day yielded a few good sized Dorado and the first few early morning hours of the last day I caught a whopping great sail fish (pics attached) which of course rounded up the charter perfectly. The staff at the Base were all a pleasure and we have no hesitation in recommending them and particularly, Dan, our skipper.
Many thanks and regards,"

"We are just back from a wonderfull week sailing in the Bay of Pigs, Cuba - yacht booked on the net through Inter Yacht Charter. We would like to state that we had a super week - everything worked out fine - the boat was in good trim, well cleaned, provisions for a week in place, and skipper Alex was fantastic. He was a super cook (even though we hadn't paid for a cook) he was a very skilled diver and harpoonist so we had fresh fish or lobsters every single day and finally he nice talking to and kind to all - adults and children. All-in-all the best part of our three week Cuba tour!"
Henrik Rossen & Family from Denmark, Sailing from Cienfuegos, Cuba - July 2008
"Thanks to Inter Yacht Charter for the very friendly support and good organization. We sailed on the Costa del Sol in Spain and it was a very pleasant experience. We didn't get the original boat we booked, but the replacement was even bigger. The marinas on the Costa del Sol are just great and the winds were strong enough to give us some excitement. And one day we could even make the experience to sail in fog with radar support. We can only recommend Inter Yacht Charter!"

"A wonderful ten days holiday in Seychelles, despite the first three days' bad weather. Great fish (see the picture) caught by our skipper and superbly cooked by our 5 stars efficient chef. The communication with our Creole-English speaking Captain -often more Creole than English- was not always easy. Snorkelling with reef sharks and turtles (one tried to bite Maria!) in incredibily warm waters. Unfortunately in some places most of the corals are bleached."

We cross true the Caribbean sea to the islands Montserrat, Nevis, St Kitts, St Marten, St. Berthelemy, Barbuda, Antigua and back to the Guadeloupe - approximately 450 sm. Thank you for all. Everything was perfect. The boat was in super condition and the “crew” in marina base was very friendly and professional. I'm enjoying the next trip in 2009. Sincerely Arpad."

Emiliano Ragnini & Friends, Caribbean - December/January 2008
"If we were to pen the highlights (panoramic views, turquoise seas, golden sandy beaches, fresh lobster and rum punch’s, freezing cold/wet and gloomy days [back in the UK that is, not in the sun drenched Caribbean], views coming about islands …….. ), it would be a very long message, so I’m going to keep it brief.
Everything was absolutely fantastic. The Catamaran was perfect for us in every way. Our Captain was superb and added immensely to the experience. The itinerary was spot on as were all the logistics leading up to the charter. As ‘first timers’ we could have got this very wrong but with your help and support we got it very right, making it the best ever holiday experience - our future challenge will be trying to emulate ‘Caribbean Winter Charter 2007’. Thank you very much indeed. Photo is on the way."
Dave Arthur & Simon Lavin, Caribbean - Winter 2007
"Many thanks to Inter Yacht Charter, for organizing my excellent family sailing holiday in Costa Smeralda/Sardinia. Boat selection and agreement was pretty easy and straight forward. All my questions were answered very promptly, all agreements adhered to. Boat itself was by-the-book prepared:
i.e. in excellent condition, on time, cleaned, fuelled, sails not too worn out with outboard as a very nice extra.
Check in and check out procedures went also without any issues. Generally, customer service of the local charter company was above what I usually experienced over my 12 years chartering history.
For example, we experienced a technical problem during the morning of our last day (broken engine Bowden cable). The problem was promptly resolved (more then 2 hour job) so we could still enjoy our last afternoon sailing. And finally, Costa Smeralda is simply a sailors heaven! It should not be underestimated though! It may blow quite hard there.
I have already and will also in the future recommend Inter Yacht Charter to my friends."

"Many thanks for your help with our charter on the Costa Del Sol, on arrival in Sotogrande the owner of the charter company was more than helpful , we are a group of eight and we have been chartering together for nine years and in our experience this company has exceeded all our expectations from their courteous manner, to taking us to three local shops in his car for provisions.
The Benetau 47 was everything we expected and the one way charter was really helpful. We had excellent winds and the weather was kind to us. The charter company is expecting a volvo racing yacht in August and we are planning on returning next year and using it to travel to Morocco and we will definitely be contacting you again."
Again many thanks, yours Martyn, Costa del Sol - May 2007
"I could not just pick one photo....way too hard. Our time in February 2007 with Inter Yacht Charter was very good. Everything was straight forward and there were no last minute surprizes. The produce we ordered was superior in quality and quantity to the other 3 Caribeen based charter companies we have sailed with in the past. Communication with the French speaking captain was a bit of a challenge for our English speaking crew....but between what we both knew in language, all worked out well.
We were very prepared up front, by Jeremy so that there were no surprizes and the paperwork was already understood before we reviewed it. The communication throughout the initial agreement process was quick and clear. Our originally chartered 2007 vessel was not available (due to a manufacturer's delay), so we were offered an upgrade as per the contract. The only thing that I would recommend is to stay in one Country. We had to spend far too much time clearing in and out of customs for one weeks vacation."

"Our Bavaria 46 was not ready on 01.11 but, Jeremy assistance when needed was superb, we get Bavaria 50 for the same prize. Shortly, all eight of us sailing around Canary islands for a wonderful eight days instead of week.
I extend our warmest thanks for everything you did to make our vacation so terrifically enjoyable. The office staff was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The boat, was clean and very well maintained. I recommend, Inter Yacht Charter very highly.
P.S. I have chartered with a lot of companies and your customer service was by far the best I have encountered. You must enjoy your work and it show, Jeremy ,thank you again."
Krzysztof Lichwala, www.yachting.pl - Canaries, November, 2006
"We had a fantastic time and everything worked perfect. The service and the support we had was very good. We sailed along the south side of the island and spent about half time on anchorage. If we are coming back I would like to go longer distances, like Ibiza, but for now this was perfect. I will mail to you a photo, or two, from our vacation.
I do have a complaint, however. It turned out that one of the water tanks was not filled up when we arrived, so we ran out of water. This was easily fixed by going into the nearest harbor, but they had no fresh water, so we had to fill up with "mixed water" (don't know the English word) - so we felt more salty then we wanted to, for a couple of days."
A Frestad & Family, Sweden - Mallorca, August 2006
"Thanks so much for a fabulous charter. Everything was perfectly planned and it was good to feel so safe in the hands of such a great skipper. The four of us enjoyed ourselves immensely and wished it could have been longer. Swimming in deep water was just fabulous. And you have ignited a passion for sailing in at least one of our group.
We wanted to take a trip that we would all remember - IYC created a memory that we will always treasure."
The Maple Girls, Marbella - July 2006
"This charter was very much a last minute affair and we are grateful for the way you rose to the challenge and arranged things in the few days available. The boat was in good condition and hand over team on the pontoon were friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed the sailing in the Canaries and realize now that Europe does have an all year round cruising ground with a warm sunny climate and interesting destinations which appears to be largely ignored at this time of year. Perhaps yachtsmen are put off by its reputation for rowdy mass tourism and see it merely as a stepping stone to the Atlantic crossing, particularly the ARC, and do not realise what a lovely coastline and pleasant interesting sailing there is to be had there."
Robert Davies, UK - March 2006
"The Trip with Joey was great experience! In every place we went we were the only (sailing-) boat. We went to lonely islands with white sand beaches and to some very nice and luxury resorts. We talked and laughed a lot in the evening while drinking a lot of beer and tanduay. We were swimming around the boat in the nighttime and are snorkeling and diving in the day time. Joey brought us save to every place we want to go and it was sometimes really hard. Up to 40 knots wind and 5 meter waves were no problem for him. when we went back to boracay he sailed 30 hours without a brake!!!
Please send him our best greets and we hope to sail with him again next time!!!"
Alexandra and Andreas, Germany - February 2006
"Thank you so much Jeremy, we had a wonderfull sailing holiday, everything was in order, like check in/out, delivery from Martinique to St Lucia. I have a charter company and we could not find any missing ingredients for a perfect vacation. I definetely know that the next year we will book our winter holiday with Inter Yacht Charter."
M Ozal, Turkey - January 2006
"Jeremy and IYC took care of everything for my Brothers Stag Weekend. The 2 Yachts where immaculate and the skippers where fantastic, I could not have asked for more. 8 out of the 11 of our party had never sailed before and left with huge smiles after an effortless and at times breathless weekend of sailing"
Chris Averill, We are London - 2005
"We are back in Los Angeles now after having a wonderful vacation in Mallorca. We enjoyed competing and sailing the Yacht and felt that the boat and the arrangements more than met our expectations. The last evening we had a wonderful dinner with the Owner and his Wife and discussed the entire regatta. What a wonderful experience!"
Michael Shlens, Los Angeles, US - August 2005
"We all had a fantastic time. The charter company were on the ball, and apart from the minor misunderstanding which you sorted out, we had no hassles at all. The skipper was awesome. Not only did he know his way around the waters, taking us to some wonderful spots to swim and chill out, but he also knew some of the best restaurants in the ports we stopped at. We can honestly say that we would not be able to recommend one change, it really was as close to a perfect holiday as we could get. I would certainly be recommending it to all who will listen. Thanks for all the effort you put into organizing the week."
B Murray, Verisign - Corfu, July 2005
"Both Frank and I had a great time sailing. Thank you and we will get together again, I'm sure. Luke wants to be a skipper when he grows up and Leah never takes the shell necklace off. "
Salvaggio Family, NZ - September 2004
"I first contacted IYC in 2003. My wife & I wanted a Charter in Mallorca at very short notice. We were so impressed with the complete service that we have booked a Corporate Charter for the Company this winter."
J.M. Braide, London - August 2004
"There is a rare quality about Inter Yacht Charter. Their Impulsive Vitality, makes every Charter totally individual and yet seemingly inevitable."
R & S Clarke-Cox, AON, UK - June 2004
"We were looking for an Exotic Island, where the weather was beautiful and we could celebrate our Honeymoon in November. The Knowledge of IYC is daunting. What these guys don´t know about Charter Yachts, ain´t worth knowing"
Mark Ford, IBM - 2003
"Thanks Jeremy for making the preparations for a truly unforgettable Charter."
David & Kate, Oz - September 2003
"Your interface with the “service” that you provide is so personal and thoughtful. The pace, the attention to detail, the stories, the drinks at the end of the sail… It felt too short. I never had chance to hear the 'Felix' story."
Charles Meo, The DG Group - May 2003
"Hi Guys. Alison & I have had the time of our lives. The whole package was perfect. It was obvious right away you knew your business! I'm a prolific dreamer and with your help our dreams were turned into reality. The inspired confidence that you gave us about Bareboat Sailing has made us want to buy our first boat."
Jim & Alison, Canada - April 2003
"I wanted to take a moment to thank both of you for the wonderful experience that you created for the MacPherson family. The Girls are madly editing the approximate 600 pictures taken to create a lasting memory. We will send you a CD within a few weeks, and you can use them in any way you wish."
The MacPherson Family, Scotland UK - August 2002
"I loved the spring charter and actually meeting you. I loved all of the Sails, but especially the dolphins on the third day. You will always be in my thoughts."
