Charter 2nd to 9th August 2020, Split-Split
"As already communicated by phone, our trip was more than perfect and pleasant. Pascal once again gave us an unforgettable time as captain with his great crew.
I would particularly like to highlight Cesar as perfect chef of french cuisine.
One of my guests, Norbert S., a former star chef, was very enthusiastic.
All in all nice and safe too. I am looking forward to the next trip with hopefully the same line-up ..
Thank you !
best regards
Paul M."
Charter 15th to 20th July 2019, Naples-Naples
Bonjour Pascal, nous avons des très beaux souvenirs de notre première croisière en famille, avec les enfants! Nous espérons refaire une autre, peut-être l’année prochaine. Merci à toute l’équipe pour notre séjour magnifique à bord! Bon week-end.
Charter 26th May to 2nd June 2019, Milazzo-Milazzo
"Our family absolutely loved our experience on Grand Bleu Vintage. The boat itself is beautiful and maintained to a stunning standard by its crew: everything works, everything is spotless. The crew led by Pascal is very competent, flexible, and discreet. Hippolyte is a gourmet chef who ensured that we raved about every meal and despite the obvious space limitations, he also managed to ensure his presentation was impeccable. Clemence, our hostess, attended to us with a smile and always attentive to your needs or desires. Guillaume not only looked after the boat but went the extra mile to keep our two kids engaged and entertained with water sports, fishing and beach frolics. Overall, our stay on Grand Bleu Vintage will count among our family’s happiest memories. A big thank you to the team."

Charter 23rd June - 7th July 2018, Palma - Palma
« Dear Pascal!

Thanks for 2 wonderful weeks! We had a great time and I gained 3 kilos... We really appreciated the trip. The four of you is such a good team! Experienced crew that we always are safe with, Hippolyte’s fantastic cuisine, Clemence that looks after us to the smallest detail all day long, Guillaume that is quick and young - activates the children and supports you well. And you Pascal - Captain that overlooks everything and fixes big and small things!

There are many things to mention. However; the boat is execellent - a real sailboat that is sturdy, stable and calm - with everything we need of comfort - and all technical things works well. It is like a home when we are there. And most of all the people - you - that are both calm and discrete and gives plenty of room for us feeling at home on a boat that is after all a limited area. The friendly relations we have with you and the fact that we can all be a big family without stress, made also this holiday fantastic for us.

Give my regards to everyone! »
Charter 8th – 13th July, 2017 Antibes-Antibes:
All in all it was great.
- The crew is very professional, helpful, service-minded.
- The boat is "impeccable“. Clean, well-kept and maintained.
- The equipment is of the highest sort and kept in good shape.
- The atmosphere was very pleasing, relaxed and we were left to our privacy.
- The meals were delicious and lovely presented.
- The captain was very reliable and had always a good overview. He never looses his temper.
- Prices are fair.
It was a fantastic experience and we could think of doing it next year again.

Guest's comment:

« We hadextremely nice days at the Grand Bleu Vintage in Sardinia and Corsica June 24th –July 5th. Wereally liked the boat and the sailing - and the crew was excellent. They workedvery well together as a team and made us all feel welcome and at home. Caringand smiling. Always. Nothing to complain about. We have chartered boats before.This was the best crew by far until now! They seem to enjoy to work together.

Pascal is experiencedon board and the boss – as it should be – very friendly and caring. Hippolytemade excellent food for us several times every day – always fresh and made withdedication – and a nice person to learn to know. Clemence helped us in allpossible ways – kept the boat tidy, served the food, provided whatever weneeded early and late – positive and friendly. Ivan is a first class sailor andalso supported the crew, kept the children busy with watersports and helped uswhenever needed – always with a smile. »

Charter 16th-23rd May 2016 - Sicily
Capt. Pascal,

This is the email which I just sent to Hippolyte. I forward it to you so that you know Dave and I say "Bravo" to you for making excellent choice in your selection of crew. Julien and Anne Sophie also are excellent at what they do. All 8 of us on board the Grand Bleu Vintage felt so very well taken of last week. You run a wonderful ship! Merci Beaucoup pour nos jours splendids!

Cher Chef Hippolyte,

Dave and I have visited Portofino and Cinque Terre. We are now en route to the Amalfi coast. We have eaten at some very fine restaurants in our long lives. But few compare to the fantastic meals which you served to us aboard Grand Bleu Vintage -- day after day after day! It was truly amazing: we never expected to eat so well aboard a sailboat with a little galley! Bravo, et Merci Beaucoup!!


Charter 12-21th of August - Palerm-Millazzo
From the guest to the broker: I would like to give 15% of gratuity to the crew as they have been amazingly professional, kind and careful for us.
Charter 23-30 August 2014 (Kotor-Split)
The feedback is that we very much enjoyed the week.

The crew were excellent and so was the yacht.
Charter 15-22 Feb 2014
We have just returned from a memorable cruise on your yacht Grand Bleu Vintage.
We were a party of seven. We would all like to thank you for allowing us onboard your beautiful yacht which is clearly your pride and joy. We also thank you for having such a wonderful Captain and crew which made up a perfect team. They were extremely courteous and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a fabulous time. Great sailing and great food !
Thank you so much for giving us this privilege.
Yours truly,
Charter 4 -11 January 14
Dear Pascal:
I am back in my office in Sao Paulo and wanted to thank you again for a wonderful week. We were very impressed by the professionalism of the whole crew (in particular Hypolite s cooking!), the quality of the boat and your enthusiasm in meeting our wishes. We wish you a successful season in the forthcoming months. Regards to all,
Antonio B
Charter 20 - 29 December 2013
They were extremely happy with their choice of yacht and the sailing and diving worked perfectly for them.
"Captain Pascal was flexible in the itinerary and Julien was unfailingly helpful and skilled at teaching the boys to wakeboard, Hypolite cooked up countless different and delicious meals, and Indira did a great job keeping everything clean and tidy. It is a good team and they all get on well".
Charter 12-21 July 13- Corsica
We spent last week on the Grand Bleu Vintage for a charter in Corsica. We want to express to you how great this experience has been for all of us. This was a premiere for our girls but our husband and I had already been on 4 or 5 other charters before. This is thanks to your beautiful and comfortable boat, and particulary thanks to a very wonderful crew. Captain Pascal has been an outstanding captain, leading us through the best places of Corsica with patience and kindness, very attentive to our requests and tastes, being also particularly didactic about sailing with us and our kids. Indira's only concern has been our comfort and she has been treating us like kings and princesses with permanent attentions. Chef Hippo made all the efforts to please us and taylor to our specific tastes and food constraints. Julien has been a cheerful and kind mate, very patient also with all of us in all kinds of activities and always with a positive mind.
Before coming, I was worried being 4 of us with a crew of 4 but they have been so discreet that it has been a real pleasure at all times. When we wished for company and discussion they were there and when we wished to stay as a family they disappeared.
As you understand, we are very motivated to reexperience a charter with your boat and with this crew next year, because this will give us the garanty of having a very good time and a unique experience......

June 20-26 / 2010 - Croatia
Dear Reia, Thanks for all your hard work. The week was fantastic. We all loved the boat and especially the crew. They did an amazing job of looking after us for the week. Pascal is a great captain and made all the family feel safe as well as ensuring that we had a wonderful schedule. 

Thanks again. We will be back next year. 

Mark.

July 10-17, 2011 - Corsica
Hello,
It's been on my mind to write you for over a month now, to let you know about the fantastic charter we had aboard Grand Bleu Vintage this summer. My wife Terry and I along with our good friends were aboard her for a week as we cruised from Antibe to Corsica.

I have chartered large power and sailing yachts over 3 dozen times in locations from Tonga to Canada, all over the Caribbean and the Med. This crew and boat were in our top 5 of all time. As you probably know, the key to a really great charter is always the crew. And this was no exception. Pascal has put together a great team. The fact that this group worked together as well last summer shows as they are really a nice team.

I have to say a special word about Hyppolite, the chef. The quality of the food, the presentation, the selection of the menus, the way he listened to his guests were all absolutely perfect. In fact, my wife and I felt this was consistently the finest food we had ever had on a yacht. We particularly loved how he got all that taste and variety into our meals and we didn't gain any weight. Maybe it is true that "French women don't get fat", which was the name of a popular little book here in the USA a couple years ago.

Well, I know you must get lots of note of commendation, but I didn't want our wonderful experience to go without comment. I wouldn't have changed a thing (except for perhaps a bit more wind!)

Please feel free to use us as a reference for anyone interested in GBV or their crew.

Best Regards,

Paul K
