I organized a short 3h charter for a corporate group with the help of Isabella from Charter One. Everything was smooth and easy - from selecting options to ensuring we were prepped before the trip. Day of, everything was great - service was perfect, the yacht was even better than expected. I would definitely recommend using Charter One.

If you are looking for a one stop shop- this is the cruise to take! Isabella is great and has a great attention to detail and very responsive in her communication. This was a corporate lunch cruise that we took on Charter One Yachts. We had 35 people and the space on the yacht was spacious and you never felt crowded at all. The crew had excellent hospitality service and was really attentive to detail. The food was so fresh and delicious. You will not be disappointed booking a trip on Charter One Yachts.

I recently had a corporate event with customers and got a chance to work with the Charter One Yachts team. I've had the pleasure of working with the front office to crew members onboard the yacht. Pre-event, with the little time I had to put together the event, the COY team promptly responded to my inquiries and checked in with me for the items I owed them. I've had some substitution requests for the menu and they were very accommodating to our needs. During the event, first, we were greeted by the friendly crew, then the evening continued with excellent service. The guests commented how accommodating the crew members are, not just during the dinner service, but throughout the entire experience. I would definitely work with them again!

Beautiful ship! We hosted our company party this year on Charter One yachts and I was blown away to say the least! The ship was beautiful and the crew members were all highly trained professionals who are passionate about their work and are dedicated to making your experience unforgettable. They are knowledgeable about the local area and can provide valuable insights into the best places to visit and the most scenic routes to take. Charter One Yachts is also very accommodating to special requests, whether it's a specific type of cuisine, custom decorations, or even a special itinerary. They work closely with their clients to ensure that every detail is taken care of and that their expectations are exceeded.

Just had a birthday party for 41 people on Saturday on the Yacht Summerwind. Isabella was very a accommodating and easy to work with. . I was more than delighted at the condition of the boat, the appetizers and delicious food served and most of all the attentive personnel/ servers. It was a first class experience from start to finish. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

The crew was amazing at delivering excellence in service, timing everything with such precision a well as meeting the needs of all the passengers.
