Crew of Motoryacht Cocktails Serve Up Warm Memories

Posted on

COCKTAILS SUPERYACHT UPDATE

Recently, we reported on a mishap in New England where the 85-foot yacht, Cocktails, ran aground in Woods Hole, Mass.  Unfortunately, the yacht hit a rock. Per the Coast Guard, quick actions of the skipper  saved that yacht. He ground the vessel, which prevented it from sinking. There were no luxury yacht charter guests onboard at the time of the incident.

WHERE IS SHE NOW?

The yacht is currently in the boat yard. She is undergoing repairs in preparations for the upcoming winter Florida yacht charter season.

YACHT CHARTER REVIEW TESTIMONIAL

Finally, here’s an upbeat comment from a recent, highly-satisfied charter guest:

“It gives me great pleasure to recommend the fabulous crew and motoryacht Cocktails for your consideration. We booked a week’s New England yacht charter for my precious mom’s 80th birthday celebration…and the cruise far exceeded our expectations. The ship easily accommodated seven family members with several lounging spaces such that we never felt as if we were “on top of each other.” I loved the open-air upper deck with bar and jacuzzi!

What’s best of all, however, is the crew! Captain Todd was anxious to ensure the itinerary was exactly to our liking, and he was very receptive to any requests. Brandon, our Cordon Bleu trained chef, provided appetizers and meals that were so delicious that we always preferred to dine on board. My only complaint is that I probably gained five or more pounds on this trip! It was all too good to pass up (and I usually say no to desserts!). Mary, our sweet and attractive steward/bartender, took good care of us and worked non-stop to ensure our rooms were clean and fresh (she also mixes the best martinis ever).

In short, all of the Cocktails’ crew members were kind, considerate, and helpful. They made our experience great fun — a trip of a lifetime, which I hope you have the opportunity to experience as well!”

Food For Naut: Caterer Finds Niche In Caribbean Yacht Charter Market

Posted on

You are the chef onboard a St. Barts yacht charter vessel, and your guests have asked you to create a lavish meal at sea with hard-to-find ingredients.  Where do you turn?

The answer is a specialty food supplier such as The Grateful Palate.

Since 2009, the South Florida-based caterer has offered provisions to discerning customers in the nautical industry.  From their 10,000 square foot distribution center in the Fort Lauderdale area, the provisioning company has always sourced and shipped food items, toiletries, and other premium goods to chefs and crew on mostly Caribbean and Bahamas yacht charter vessels.  They have also serviced private yachts as well.

But, sadly, The Grateful Palate is no more…..until the Fall of 2014, when they reopen in a larger facility so that they can continue servicing their discriminating clientele!
According to owner Meghan Leckey, being able to meet customers’ demands and deliver the goods resulted in a strong repeat clientele and the company’s continued growth. She said, that it was “…a growing business that [has] picked up substantially over the years.”
For Passover this year, Leckey’s company supplied a 200-foot Virgin Islands yacht charter vessel in St. Thomas with kosher meats, sodas, dry goods, and ceremonial supplies for the religious holiday. It also sent specialty kosher caviar flown in from Paris.
Leckey feels she understands the needs of the owners and crews of the world’s largest yachts
“The secrets of our success are, first of all, really understanding the amazing level of quality demanded by the wealthiest yacht owners in the world and, secondly, anticipating everything the crew will need for the trip,” said Leckey. “There is no other industry in the world that demands this level of attention to quality, from Beluga caviar to toilet paper (as the luxury yacht charter industry), and few other companies in the world that can meet those expectations.”

The company, as does 1-800 Yacht Charters, relies on customer referrals to spread the word. “We thrive on good remarks, and repeat business is key in this specialized industry,” Leckey said.

President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, Jana Sheeder, could not agree more.
WE LOVE REFERRALS!
