Fidelity, BVI crewed charter yacht
[previous crew] The yacht was in tip-top condition (effectively new) and fitted out to the highest standard. The master cabin was spacious and comfortable, and shared a head and shower with the starboard side twin cabin. The port side twin cabin had its own head and shower, but restricted headroom for one of the bunks. The galley and dining area was roomy, light and had excellent views, whilst the cockpit external dining area (which we used most of the time and seated 6 in comfort) was really luxurious and seemed unique in a yacht of this size. The bimini gave sun and rain protection and could be stowed away in seconds. The swimming deck was easy to deploy and access and the watermaker was a real luxury – there was always plenty of fresh water. The front sun deck was a nice feature, especially when coming into port, and the rear rail seating was comfortable and safe even when cruising fast at a 25 degree heel. Overall, we didn’t see another yacht in 12 days of cruising that offered the comparable quality of fit-out, an equivalent entertaining space and top-level sailing qualities. We were quite proud to be on it, actually – a real peach.

This was the first charter Jan and Alma had done together on Mojeka. They were keen to please and that created a very positive impression right from the start. At the same time, they were obviously working out how to operate together effectively and that was quite charming to observe. We felt they relaxed towards each other and to us in the course of the charter and we all had a lot of fun together as the trip progressed. Jan was a highly competent and experienced sailor with good practical skills around the boat, whilst Alma (with limited sailing experience) was an imaginative and skillful cook who rose impressively to the challenge of organizing and cooking in a grand style in the restricted facilities available. Her menus always had a touch of the exotic which is exactly what we had hoped for. We established an on-board routine of expansive breakfasts, then either a big lunch or dinner on board and the other meal ashore, which suited everyone fine. We particularly liked Alma’s cheery disposition, always on display and especially at mealtimes! Jan took his responsibility as captain very seriously and we would enjoy sailing with him again in waters he knows well and this may be something we plan on doing in the future.

A charter of a big, modern yacht over Christmas and New Year was always going to be expensive and this charter certainly ticked that box. However, the overall quality and delivery was excellent and there were no additional “nasty surprises” - the only extra charge was for the six bottles of top quality champagne which was ordered at our request, as agreed. The yacht and crew succeeded in fulfilling our (high) expectations and we would certainly consider chartering Mojeka with Jan and Alma again, perhaps in a different area of the Caribbean.
