Life aboard  M/V BONAPARTE


M/V BONAPARTE  offers endless possibilities for fun, adventure and relaxation. The Exuma chain of islands in the Bahamas is the perfect destination to discover on a yacht. This itinerary is designed to get as much done in the time allotted with minimum travel time between destinations. A 7-days charter would be preferable so that the itinerary would not be rushed and all destinations can be explored to give a true reflection of the Exuma chain in the Bahamas and not miss anything out.

Your itinerary can include Highbourne cay and Horseshoe bay before moving to Norman's cay, Shroud Cay or Warderick Wells-an old pirate's hideaway. Also to be explore Compass Cay unique style and Staniel cay for it's festive yacht club in the evening.

How do you start a tradition? You book the MV Bonaparte one time - you'll return year after year! I must admit to a certain amount of trepidation in booking a week's charter on a boat we had not seen close up with a crew we had never met in person. After all, Web sites always show only the best (and sometimes pretty outdated) side of things. MV Bonaparte is everything advertised and more! The boat is immaculate, the service is impeccable and the crew is a delight to get to know. Each location the Captain took us to was another slice of paradise. Each activity another great experience with quality equipment and first rate assistance. Each meal attested to Annette's exceptional artistry in the galley. Our 25th wedding anniversary turned out to be just the start of a new tradition! Thank you Francois and Annette and we'll see you next year!!!
