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

Client testimonials are critical for the industry. Superyachts cater to an exclusive clientele, so any feedback that we receive is important to pass along to other clients. We also rate yachts for their feasibility to particular groups and what they expect. For instance, if a crew is bothering the guests, we comment to the crew about remaining invisible.
“Great trip. Motor yacht LADY BEE is a great boat – spacious rooms, great entertainment lounge for kids…
Food/chef was superb – service and tableware was very impressive.
Crew was very helpful, well dressed, polite, however considering this was a 9-person crew, there were times we had to look/find someone for service.
Little disappointed, when no safety instructions, muster points, first aid/fire information was given. We were told to read the manual provided…not really that efficient for children.
Yacht was well equipped with toys, movies, life jackets, lots of good quality towels, great dinnerware/settings – all very impressive.
Very clean, well organized, plenty of snacks, and no shortage of any provisions.
As I am considering another Med/Adriatic sea cruise in Aug 2013, I would certainly charter this boat, if it were in the area!”
Motoryacht Lady Bee is a 142′ Caribbean yacht charter vessel. She accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins. This review was not our charter, but sharing the review is important to us. Lady Bee spends time in the winter in the lower Caribbean. After that, she heads to the Bahamas with a home port of Nassau. In other words, Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, here we come!
Weekly charter rate is $110,000, plus all running expenses.

“Dear Captain Scott,
I wanted to thank you and your crew for the wonderful charter we had on board motor yacht Serenity. The yacht is of course absolutely beautiful, the food was spectacular but the service is what impressed us most.
We were so very thrilled with the level of attention your crew gave to us and our guests. To travel with children from the ages of 10 to 21 and find activities that everyone enjoys is certainly difficult, but you and your crew managed it effortlessly. The kids are still raving about the trip and are anxious to do it again.
Please thank your crew for making this one of our most memorable vacations. You will be our first call when we’re ready to book our next charter.
Editor’s note: Launched in 2008, Lazzara motor yacht SERENITY offers accommodations for 10 guests in 5 cabins with ensuite bathrooms.

Available for Florida yacht charters as well as vacations in the Bahamas, her published rate is $53,000 per week, plus expenses.
A FALL SPECIAL is available for the Thanksgiving holiday: Book a 7-day vacation starting Nov 28 or 29, and get 1 extra day free (a savings of over 15%) … or book a 3-day trip beginning Nov 28 or 29 and pay $22,000 (save $7,000). PLUS all delivery fees waived!
