St Francis 50ft - 2008, refit 2019


Yacht description

The St Francis 50 Nutmeg is the perfect “little” boat. Her crew of Whitey and Max have a great sense of humour and a lovely eye for design, ensuring that Nutmeg is one of the most aesthetically pleasing catamarans around.

Her interior is a little different from some other charter yachts in that beautiful dark wood is offset by pastel blue leather upholstery, which works really well. The salon is very comfortable and is a great spot to escape the heat and relax with a book or have a quick snooze whilst nobody is looking!

Nutmeg has four staterooms with large en-suite bathrooms and showers, so is perfect for up to eight people. There is also a side berth which would be great for a child.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Nutmeg? – FLEXIBILITY – Nutmeg is the perfect size for either eight people but is competitively priced for just two. From potent cocktails through to having fun in the water you will have a blast onboard Nutmeg – and your sides will hurt from laughing so much!

    Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend Nutmeg or its crew to others.

    Max and Whitey are very easy to be with, and were great with the children. We all enjoyed their company, and they made us feel at home on Nutmeg. The food was fantastic and varied. There were not many instances in which someone did not fully clean their plate. Max made special effort with the food for New Year’s Eve, with lobster for lunch and steak for dinner. She also accommodated our youngest child with her preferred chicken when seafood (not preferred by her) was served. We ate very, very well.

    As you know, the crew agreed to take the “drop down” forward cabin, leaving the four main cabins in the rear for our family of five. I did not previously appreciate what a significant difference this would make. It made the boat feel larger for us than it otherwise would have felt and provided some privacy that we may not have had otherwise. Their willingness to accommodate guests in that way really makes a significant positive difference in the experience.

    Max and Whitey: THANK YOU again for such a wonderful trip. Your skill, experience, creativity, passion, personal chemistry – and the fact that you’re just great human beings, all made this a unique, memorable and superbly enjoyable experience for Melanie & I. I think I can safely vouch that Pete & Vera’s experience was the same.

  • The De Yong Family

    We had a wonderful time with Max and Whitey. Everything was beyond our expectations, the catamaran was beautiful and spacious and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday!!!

    Max and Whitey were absolutely wonderful: Whitey full of energy and with a great Aussie sense of humor and Max, the quiet force accompanying him, she made every meal truly wonderful: the food was delicious, varied and healthy!!! We were truly pampered (even our beds were made when we weren’t watching!!!), and we really appreciated their huge amount of experience both with sailing and in life.

    We miss them already!!! If we ever decide to sail again in the Caribbean we would choose them again, without hesitation!!!! Thank you for everything!!!

    It was possibly our best vacation! Certainly it ranked right up there. Whitey and Max are really a special crew, really great people with whom we all bonded very quickly. They go out of their way to make everyone feel at home in their home. We all loved it and thank you so much for gently nudging me to choose them.

  • D Green

    You guys are definitely the greatest!!! Please know that our experience with you on our charter vacation is one of the finest experiences I’ve had in my lifetime [and I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot]. I thank God for our 6 days with you guys and for having had the opportunity to meet each of you. I can’t tell you how many people have inquired of us about our experience. Of course everyone is envious. Margie tells everyone “on a scale of 1 – 10, this trip was a 15”.
