Zylkene 1 was extremely comfortable!!!! And in excellent condition!!!! It was extremely clean and well kept. They even changed the linen when it got dirty!!!! The captain and crew were amazing.

Captain Julian was incredible, He took us on dinghy excursions and helped rescue the kinds on his limo-dinghy when they went too far away!!! He fed the sharks and helped us pet them. Also gave us lessons on fishes and how to treat nature. They know everything about the boat and its surroundings. They are incredible people and made our trip even more special.

We have undertaken many trips with "Windward-islands Yachting company " and we have always been very satisfied with their services. Our last experience on the catamaran Lagoon 56 named Zylkene was great and everyone aboard agreed that it was an amazing & pleasant cruise.This being mainly due to the crew, who behaved in a very professional way and made our trip a whole lot better. Noel and Patricia who were our skippers were extremely devoted, helpful, happy and likeable. The food cooked by Patricia was exquisite, and Noels meticulous nature gave everyone a feeling of security and cleanliness. Along the way, we became friends and shared more than good laughs ; it was sad to have to say goodbye. The boat itself was very cozy, there was good fishing gear aboard and we had many good catches which were transformed into great dinners. Apart from that, our communicative relationship with the crew was excellent and all our concerns and complaints were addressed immediately and in a most professional matter. Thank you all very much for this pleasant trip, until next time! Bob & friends
Francisco review 25 Mar 2016 11:12
Hi, For your records, we had a wonderful experience with Julien and Rebecca. Of course, the catamaran was in excellent conditions, only it had a minor malfunctioning of one of the electrical control panels which was by-passed by Julien, and it was sent to repair. Julien and Rebecca make an outstanding team and they both master their respective areas. Julien at the helm, all technical facts, itinerary, and tender services such as wakeboarding pilot. Rebecca, in turn, is an excellent cooking chef. Every single day, we enjoyed gourmet quality dishes and desserts. She paid very close attention to details fulfilling all what we have said in the preference list and even more. Both of them were very flexible and it took them less than 48 hours to know our preferences in every aspect. So all in all, no doubt you will find in Zylkene, thanks to Julien and Rebecca, a catamaran that will not disappoint the toughest of your customers.

**APA :The Advance Provisioning Allowance is a deposit made to cover expenses incurred during the course of the charter such as fuel, food, beverages, mooring fees, visa fees, harbour fees, park fees, local taxes, and other expenses not included in the Charter Fee. It is paid in full with the Charter Fee, and is managed by the captain who can present the accounts on request.

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.

Hi, For your records, we had a wonderful experience with Julien and Rebecca. Of course, the catamaran was in excellent conditions, only it had a minor malfunctioning of one of the electrical control panels which was by-passed by Julien, and it was sent to repair. Julien and Rebecca make an outstanding team and they both master their respective areas. Julien at the helm, all technical facts, itinerary, and tender services such as wakeboarding pilot. Rebecca, in turn, is an excellent cooking chef. Every single day, we enjoyed gourmet quality dishes and desserts. She paid very close attention to details fulfilling all what we have said in the preference list and even more. Both of them were very flexible and it took them less than 48 hours to know our preferences in every aspect.

**APA :The Advance Provisioning Allowance is a deposit made to cover expenses incurred during the course of the charter such as fuel, food, beverages, mooring fees, visa fees, harbour fees, park fees, local taxes, and other expenses not included in the Charter Fee. It is paid in full with the Charter Fee, and is managed by the captain who can present the accounts on request. If during the course of the charter, the provision becomes insufficient, the client will be advised by the captain and be required to supplement the sum. The captain will present the detailed accounts at the end of the charter and any remaining APA will be reimbursed directly.

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.
