We had a opportunity to chat with Captain Glynn Smith onboard the Trinity yacht charter vessel, motor yacht MI SUENO recently. We organized a year-end Caribbean yacht charter for a repeat customer and needed to review itinerary ideas, etc.
It’s always a pleasure to work with a real “Can-Do” skipper – the type of professional who never says “No” to a client. Glynn truly understands the value of top-notch customer service, and it shows in his enthusiasm.
Glynn’s positive attitude and professionalism deserve recognition. Maybe it’s time we showed him our gratitude with a little extra promotion of his magnificent charter vessel, M/Y MI SUENO:
Built in the USA in 2010 by Trinity Yachts, the 190 foot luxury motor yacht MI SUENO is a standout superyacht in every respect.
Her amenities include WiFi and Kaleidescape central movie/music server throughout. She’s also equipped with a 2-person, wheelchair-accessible elevator (to 3 levels).
Conversation areas abound on all levels – both inside and on deck. The sophisticated, contemporary interior designed by Patrick Knowlesis a tasteful mix of textures, fine art, and neutral colors in furniture, fabric, carpeting, and stonework. The formal dining area is nothing short of stunning – with a table that seats 14 comfortably.
A full-width split-level Master Suite with King bed is situated forward on the main deck and features a private study, lounge, and his/hers bathrooms. Five additional ensuite staterooms below include a full-width VIP King suite, 2 matching King staterooms, a wheelchair-accessible Queen stateroom, and a Twin stateroom (with additional Pullman berth).
Trinity yacht MI SUENO offers three exterior living areas – all spacious and inviting – with beautiful teak furniture on all levels. Active guests may head on up to the sundeck for a vigorous workout on the elliptical trainer. Sore muscles can be soothed in the ondeck Jacuzzi, followed by a dip in the splash pool.
As the sun sets, who wouldn’t enjoy cocktails and al fresco dining on the aft deck of the Skylounge??
For in-water fun in the sun, yacht MI SUENO is also jam-packed with an extensive inventory of watertoys.
MI SUENO’s charter rates begin at €280,000 EUROS per week. We would love to charter her to you for the vacation of a lifetime! Give us a call or email!
SailAway Yacht Charters’ Picks for Best Secret Beaches in the Caribbean:
* Lameshur Bay Beach, St. John
* Happy Bay, St. Martin
* Palm Beach, Barbuda
For years, travel agents and yacht charter brokers have promoted the British Virgin Islands as “Nature’s Little Secret.” Unfortunately for luxury sailing charter travelers seeking solace and quiet anchorages, the secret is out. While the BVI and most of the Caribbean remains a fantastic sailing destination, there’s no denying it – it is getting harder and harder to anchor off the shore of a quiet beach.
The good news is that there are still undiscovered beaches in the Caribbean — blissful hideaways where tourism hasn’t yet eclipsed the local culture.
The most experienced Caribbean yacht charter skippers know these secret beaches but are reluctant to disclose their locations. Fortunately, our loyalties are to our charter clients – and we are more than willing to share these hidden gems with our readers!
Here are our favorite top three secret beaches in the Caribbean:
Lameshur Bay Beach, St. John, USVI
While the bareboat yacht charter crowd is anchored off the Baths in Virgin Gorda, BVI, we like slide across Drake Channel to the US side of the Virgin Islands and go ashore on the secluded southeast coast of St. John, at Lameshur Bay beach. At the end of the cobblestone beach at Lameshur is a more isolated, sandier strip known as Donkey Bight. Snorkelers love this beach, as it leads to Beehive Cove, a warren of caves and tunnels filled with coral and sea sponges and teaming with fish.
Physical fitness buffs can also enjoy a 1.2 mile hike up a trail to the 1,000-foot peak of Bordeaux Mountain, which overlooks the bay below.
Happy Bay, St. Martin
Located on the French side of St. Martin, Happy Bay is an underpopulated stretch of crème-colored sand. Thick underbrush surrounds the beach and serves as a challenging barrier to most shore-based tourists. The privacy of this beach has made it a popular spot forclothing optionaltourists. Snorkelers marvel at the vast numbers of tropical fish in the crystal waters.
Palm Beach, Barbuda
While nearby Antigua flaunts bustling beachside hotels, Barbuda offers quiet beaches with pink sands, the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, and only a handful of resorts. Antigua is a great place to begin a superyacht charter (international airport, and excellent megayacht marinas) but do yourself a favor after your board – cruise over to Barbuda and enjoy the solitude…
