“It is always such a pleasure to work with Captain James (I’ve known James since the yacht was built)
As always, he is just a delight to work alongside and makes everything enjoyable and easy. This was my first time however working with Captain Jason and I have to say it was equally as enjoyable.
Jason is hugely knowledgeable, experienced, and detailed and a real pleasure to chat with. You really do get the feeling that he cares about his guests, and they are not ‘just another charterer’.. I had no doubts whatsoever that the charter would be a great success and it was.
The yacht, crew, Captain, Chef and cuisine more than over exceeded my client’s expectations, and they left the yacht having spent a truly fantastic week onboard.
Can’t wait to work with the yacht and Captains again 😊”
“Thanks for your hard-work on this charter. You were spot on. Great crew, Captain, Chef and the boat in immaculate condition… It will be hard to go past it for next year .”
“Thanks again all for your support, it’s a pleasure as always.”
“(The clients) said they had a wonderful time on M/Y Thumper. All of the crew were excellent – extremely friendly while still being professional. Some highlights were: dinner with the Captain, the singer Emily for Jason’s birthday, the water Olympics, touring on the tender to snorkelling and swimming spots and Chef Dan’s cooking. Thank you so much for a great charter!”
“Our clients had never chartered before and the crew exceeded every expectation and ensured that they had the most memorable holiday. Captain Jason and his crew were excellent, the planning process was extremely smooth. He kept us updated throughout with reservations and berths and he took all the client’s itinerary requests into consideration. The interior team, led by Robbie, provided impeccable service, the clients even decided to cancel restaurant reservations as Chef Dan’s creations were far superior. They had an unforgettable time and would return to THUMPER in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate to put this yacht forward, she is in great condition and the crew are brilliant. Happy to have my details put forward if a broker needs to contact me directly as well.”
“Just got home last night after what truly was the trip of a lifetime for all of us. There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience. The crew was exceptionally attentive and pleasant across the board. They could not have been more accommodating and after one day they were so proactive with our preferences that they would bring us things the way we liked it even before we thought to ask! This was service on an entirely different level than even the finest hotels. Jason, the captain, was exceptional and went over every detail about our trip and moving locations with lots of prudent considerations. Dan, the cook, was outstanding. Even though we had several dinners out at great restaurants we found Dan’s meals and preparations to be superior. We even cancelled our last dinner out to enjoy Dan’s creations and the staff’s service. Robbie, the gentleman in charge of the interior service (meals and interior boat maintenance) was extremely attentive to details and made sure things went smoothly. The rest of the team were outstanding and enjoyable to be with – Sebastian, Ian, Luke, Jonathan, Anna, and Oakley! We miss Thumper and the crew terribly!
While there were a few minor issues, everything was handled professionally! No drama whatsoever!
The one negative that is worth mentioning is that Thumper and her crew set the bar so high that it is hard to imagine that we will ever experience anything that can compare with our trip in the future!
Thanks for everything.”
“I had lovely feedback from the Principle, he mentioned that the charter went very well, they’ve been very happy to get back on board of THUMPER. Principle doesn’t like the formal reports even when he is happy, but he mentioned several times that the Chef was absolutely amazing. All the charter was prepared perfectly, so from my side special thanks to Captain. I’m sure my clients will keep returning on board THUMPER.”
“Thanks to you all – and Captain James, thanks to your crew as well – for creating a fabulous charter for the (clients), and setting the bar a little higher! I look forward to recommending THUMPER to some of my most special clients.
I also want to thank Captain Jason for his amazing prep work for the charter. It seems the handover was seamless!”
“Overall the entire charter was an amazing experience. Thumper is a beautiful yacht – the interior is coastal colours, comfortable and stylish and totally our vibe. The crew were really bringing their A game every day. Can’t say enough good things about the whole team! The chef was fantastic. Chef Dan was very humble and incredibly talented. All the food was delicious and there was a great variety.
We really enjoyed St. Tropez. We thought the village was charming and there was a lot to take in. Being at Cannes during the film festival was a cool experience. The captain got us an incredible berth in both Cannes and St. Tropez and being able to walk into town and take in the sights was fabulous! Le Guerite was also one of our favourite places and we were anchored super close to Jeff Bezos new sailing yacht! And we enjoyed a night at L’Opera club in St Tropez. Highly recommend both of those for some fun!
We got lucky with the weather being better than forecasted and really are just so thankful for all the effort the captain James and crew made to make it amazing. On the last night we had a karaoke night and asked the captain if the crew could join us – it was a blast!”
“My client loved the yacht and the crew. Very professional crew. It was a pleasure working with Captain James and Captain Jason. “
“My clients absolutely loved their time onboard THUMPER and they said the charter was perfect and all the crew were fantastic, which is praise indeed. I would also like to add the professionalism of both Captain James and Jason and their crew was exceptional throughout and I couldn’t fault anything.”
“My clients really liked the yacht herself, saying she is so beautiful and very cleverly built for comfort and aesthetics. As for the crew… they said that the service was immaculate, really very professional and they adored the chef too. “
“I can only say, yet again, what a pleasure working with James (and Jason) is….. efficient, clear, “on the ball”, knowledgeable and always very pleasant…. I just wish THUMPER had more weeks to book!”
“My client said that “it’s the best boat he’s ever had and the best crew. He was really satisfied.”
