Ronnie was totally surprised and from all the comments, everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly…. You made the whole affair very easy and attended to all my wishes…

S. McGowan, NYC

“Everything was wonderful. We simply had the greatest party we’ve ever hosted. Of course the rain was a drag, but even that was better than expected, since the guests were able to stay inside comfortably. The food was fabulous, the musicians were terrific, and Dorit and Michael were the most gracious hosts. I would recommend the experience for anyone looking to do a party of this size… our guests were having such a good time that we could well have extended the party another hour and it would not have felt like too much… The boat was the height of elegance, the crew was incredible, the service was perfect. I could go on and on, and I will to my friends!

A. Garfinkul, NYC

“Everyone of my guests just fell in love with you, the vessel, the impeccable service, fantastic food, the glorious interior, exterior, the vistas, the music, the fun and your never ending warmth and concern for our every need… Thank you again for making my day so memorable and for creating an everlasting, perfect sail on your exquisitely, perfect yacht.

I. Spinks, Connecticut

“Our 20th wedding celebration was great. Everybody had a fantastic time-feedback has been really glowing. People flow, serving of drinks etc all worked very well and the staff was good – friendly and on top of things. Dorit was very involved, runs a tight ship and was good to work with. Weather even worked for us!

We had a really excellent time and everything went very well. I think Dorit should enjoy a lot of success with this venture and I’m sure that Juliette or I would be happy to talk with potential future clients to recommend the yacht if you occasionally get asked for “references”.

P. Vicari, NYC

“Exquisite, Beautiful, Superb, Wonderful, Classy, Refined, Chic, Elegant and Sophisticated are all the words that have been used by my guests to describe their evening aboard the boat. I was so proud to be the host of the party, and take all the credit, but the truth be told, you and your crew made me look good. All I did was show up. Thank you for all that you did to make my husband’s Surprise 50th so successful and unforgettable. My husband and I are trying to figure out how to get on the invitation list of the next party you host so that we can sit back and enjoy the elegance of the service and the beauty of the boat without having to worry about mingling.

K. Kohlman, Skillman Doors, LLC, NJ

“Just had to write to tell you what a wonderful time we had aboard the yacht last Saturday night. The ship was absolutely beautiful inside and out, very comfortable (and immaculate!). The food was great, from hors d’oeuvres to desserts, and the crew was more than friendly, helpful and gracious. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip around southern Manhattan and now we are looking for more occasions to celebrate aboard. Thanks for making our outing so much fun.”

J. Perkins, CT

“…I want to express how much we enjoyed our friends’ engagement cruise with you. You truly run world class operation that provided us with an evening we will never forget. I have sailed the East River in both directions during daylight hours but I have never been on New York harbor during the evening. Wow! rounding Battery Park and the watching the harvest moon fill the gap under the Manhattan Bridge was perfectly timed. And then to see our lady, the Statue of Liberty, from close up on the water was extraordinary. Add to this the excellent food prepared by your Chef and your attentive, attractive and engaging staff made a special evening all the more so. Thank you and congratulations on putting a great team and evening together. I will continue to tell my friends.

Yvonne Ford, Bride’s Mom, MI

Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and was very impressed with the professional service, truly gourmet food and the beautiful boat. It flew by like a flash and, in hindsight; we wish we booked a few more hours. All in all it was very romantic, memorable and the windy weather did not stop us from having a great time.”

“Jeremy and I are so happy with the decision we made in acquiring your services for our wedding. Our families and friends are still commenting on how wonderful the night was. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. The entire experience added the extra touch we both were looking for. It was amazing!

Dorit – Thank you for everything. I was not expecting anything less from you, your staff and the Noa Danielle. Hats off to the Chef – my mother still craves the food. And I just have to tell you…I just wished I had come back for a second plate. Thank you to the Captain and the staff for being so attentive. My friends keep telling me that your bartenders were so attentive and even remembered all of their drinks and making it easy for them to reorder. They even remembered my drink of choice…believe me. Please send my thanks to all the staff for all their hard work and for helping make that night unforgettable.”

James & Celeste McArdle, United Kingdom

“Going into our wedding day, as one of the single most important days of our lives, we could not have been certain how the Noa Danielle would serve as a platform for our dream day. We need not have worried; the boat, your crew, your attention to detail, and the wonderful food served throughout were second to none, and you delivered a day that neither we, nor indeed any of our guests will ever forget. It was perfect, and for that, we thank-you.
Now that we are back in the UK, we wish we had the chance to do it all over again…

Mr. and Mrs. Cirkle, NYC
