"Beautifully kept yacht and great experience"
We spent a wonderful 5 days on board the 'Ann Sofi' as a skippered charter. The yacht itself is very well maintained by the owners, the master cabin is extremely comfortable and spacious. We traveled as a family and our daughter had one of the aft cabins which was ideal for her.
This was our first sailing experience as a family and one we all enjoyed very much indeed. Our adventure started at Didium Marina then onto five of the Greek Dodecanese islands eventually ending up in Turgutreis Marina, stopping along the way for snorkeling and each evening in a different location, all of which were delightful.
The owners were more than happy to impart their knowledge also letting our daughter take the helm whenever possible. We had outstanding breakfasts and lunches prepared for us on board and felt more than taken care of.
All in all this was a fabulous introduction to sailing and has certainly given all the family the sailing bug.
Thanks for your feedback which is much appreciated and helpful for future guests. We hope to welcome you back again some time in the future.
