“We want to thank you and your amazing Crew for a trip of a lifetime. Our 8 days aboard motor yacht SHERAKHAN will forever be remembered and revered as beyond exceptional.
We decided to charter SHERAKHAN because of the ship’s ability to sleep more than twenty guests and the crew was to be amazing. I would like to confirm that the ship is beyond beautiful and the crew is beyond anything I have ever experienced. Chefs Mark and Michael were incredible, we never wanted to eat a meal off the boat the food was so delicious! Every morning we looked forward to seeing the incredible fruit and vegetable sculptures at the buffet table. We played water sports until we couldn’t stand, had amazing massages, and played in the glass-bottom Jacuzzi. We sang Karaoke until we couldn’t sing and danced the night away under the moon and the stars.
I want to say a very heartfelt thank you to each and every member of the crew – some I only saw once or twice – others all day every day. Thank you all so much for your hard work and all of the love you put into making sure we had a trip of a lifetime.
