An Evening Aboard Charter Yacht HANALEI BAY

We were so happy to have received a call on the VHF from our friends aboard the charter yacht HANALEI BAY. They had arrived in St. Martin the day before and planned to stay a couple of days before continuing to St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands from Trinidad. We visited Diane & Franz last night over in Marigot on the French side of St. Martin and had a wonderful time.

Here is a photo of Franz waiting to take our dinghy painter and welcome us aboard.

Diane & Franz sailed to Trinidad last summer where they hauled the boat for its annual maintenance and to prepare for the next charter season. They enjoy their time in Trinidad and have made many friends there over the last seven summers.

Hanalei Bay is a beautiful custom-built yacht designed and built to high Canadian standards for the charter industry. We enjoyed our evening lounging on the aft deck with the great company for our hosts, topped off with excellent French Cabernet Sauvignon, Camembert cheese, and wild boar pate that they picked up on Martinique.

Hanalei Bay still has a few weeks available in their charter calendar for the 2006 season. Please contact us ( for more information and availability for a Caribbean yacht charter sailing vacation aboard Hanalei Bay in the Virgin Islands.

They are an excellent choice whether it is for honeymoons, families, corporate incentives, or a group of friends! Hanalei Bay also offers charters for their annual passage down the Caribbean island chain from the Virgin Islands to Trinidad in June/July.
