A MASSIVE thank you for an amazing week in the Aeolian Islands.  The islands are really beautiful and the boat is a gorgeous platform to explore them.  We have done many charters and the most important thing is the crew and you guys are the best.  Amazing food, great service and lots of laughs.  Thanks for an amazing week.

St Maarten

What a terrific team you are!

Grant, thank you for your fine job as Captain of Dama de Noche bringing us safely from Antigua to St. Maarten with delightful sails and interesting stops at islands. And, for so generously letting me take the helm of your magnificent boat.  What a treat for me! Tara, you are such a steady and competent team member. You are a star with talents in so many areas.  Overall you took excellent care of us - and so much more.  I will be looking for that cup of tea with endless refills in the mornings for a while....

Tyler, your preparation of excellent and creative meals was inspiring.  You are an excellent chef.  Thank you for all our special requests.  You planned and executed each meal with extraordinary care. What a fun, deeply relaxing, enjoyable week for me.  You definitely take the guess work out of living for your guests!  Thank each of you for working so hard to make the week so special


St Lucia to
Union Island

February 2019

We had an absolutely fantastic time on Dama de Noche this year. Grant, Tara and Tyler made us very welcome, looked after us morning noon and night, and I know I have put on a few extra inches with Tyler’s very impressive cooking. They were all very professional, but also relaxed and very safety conscious.  As you know I am slightly in the industry,  and can only recommend the three of them as being one of the very best crews I have had the joy of sailing with. Also impressed with the upgrades that have happened, it’s an excellent paint job, and the new cushions are good. The time on the boat was a great success and hope that we will repeat it again next year.

Thank you for sailing with you, and for saving our holiday!  Without you we could have been sitting in a resort…. on shore!  We had a trip to remember, especially seeing the dolphins.  We wish you all the best and hopefully we will see in you in Europe somewhere.

Thank you for looking after us on the wonderful Dama de Noche for the last 17 days.  What a time we’ve had!

A gorgeous sail down to the Cays for the 2 of us, an action-packed 30th wedding anniversary and a memorable sail back up for the whole family after the Canouan pick up.  Thanks to Tara for care and attention to detail, to Tyler for endlessly inventive and delicious grub and Grant for calm professionalism throughout.

To the owners, we haven’t met but thank you for the loan of your magnificent lady of the night, whose looks, comfort and sailing performance will live long in the memory.

Lastly thanks for making our Christmas so memorable – none of us will forget!


Bar Harbour, Maine

August 2018

We are deeply appreciative of the opportunity that we had to spend time with you on the magnificent Dama de Noche.  We felt welcomed and attended to by your wonderful crew.

The experiences and food were excellent.  It was such a joy to see the beautiful scenery from the view of Dama.  It was also nice to have the chance to travel to the various islands and hike.

Dama is an amazing craft, we were so comfortable in our room, and the bathroom facilities were good and very functional. 

This was truly a fine and eminently memorable experience.

What a wonderful week we’ve had.  So glad to share the wonder of Maine with you, and experience the comfort and luxury of Dama de Noche, but the whole week went by way too fast.

I thought I knew the Maine Islands well until this week when you are shown us so much more – wonderful.  Thank you so much.

Everything is better than OK, it's fantastic. The boat is excellent and to a very good specification and the crew are simply one of the best, they are very professional and can't do enough. My daughter works as crew on superyachts, and I look after one, so have come across a few crew, and the 3 here are the best I have met.


The client had an absolutely extra-ordinary time on board DAMA DE NOCHE. He said the yacht is perfect, in impeccable condition and very clean. The crew could not have been better, kind, professional, discreet, and absolutely perfect. The food was excellent as well, Marie is a wonderful chef. They loved the itinerary and the Blues Festival in Mustique was great fun. They went to 2 sessions in Basils Bar and guess what: Mick Jagger was there as well.

 From my perspective it has been a pleasure to work with Marcelo, he is very organised and forward thinking. So all in all a great success. Thank you for your assistance in organising this charter and on to the next one!

We had a wonderful charter, thank you, which did meet all our expectations.

The crew really were fantastic, always very professional and we all feel that we would be hard pushed to ever have a better crew on a charter (especially as we were their first charter on Dama de Noche and so we felt they worked extra hard for us). Marcelo is a very gentle and caring captain, who knows his job extremely well, always putting others first. Marie’s cuisine was wonderful and way exceeded our expectations. Maira was lovely, very caring and could not do enough for us. We never had a wrong word or a difficult situation on board.

Many thanks again for a wonderful holiday.
