I could not possibly say enough about how much our group loved this experience. The communication was impeccable. The boat was beautiful. The service was amazing. The Globe Sailor concierge service was extra useful. We had an absolutely magical time. The only bad part was that it had to come to an end.
We didn't know what to expect, we never had rented boat with crew.
But turn out, that was the best decision we did. We had the best chef ever, I don't have words enough to explain our happiness and satisfaction with Tehei like our hostess- we never eat so perfect food for 16 days in a row, and she is so calm, happy, organised and clean- she is the best. And so our captain- he was very professional, helpful, always attentive, always care about us. He was always securing us and the boat.He shows us the best snorkeling spots, he also was amazing. In general- fantastic crew.
The boat was very nice, comfortable, thanks for the water maker. Could be nice also ice maker and WiFi access point.
The condition of the yacht was generally good, minor deficiencies were the state of the sheets and the sails, which were about to need an overhaul. The time of the year was well suited for sailing, despite the higher chance for rainfall. The thing to watch out for are the squalls moving in, one can never tell how strong it is going to blow, hence, best to reef in early. On the last day the top of the mainsail blew out in a heavy squall while we were putting in the second reef; but no worries, the charter company was relaxed about it.
Bora Bora was the least interesting of destinations; at least for us seeking less developed destinations. Maupiti and Huahine were our personal highlights! Really liked the passes and ocean passages.
Doing the eastern part of Bora Bora cannot be really recommended for monohulls; it is all the way shallow and too stressful for the skipper and crew for what it is worth.
Excellent crew, lovely catering and incredible snorkeling.
