Just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic vacation on La Bella Vita. I was extremely impressed how well outfitted the boat was, particularly with regards to ground tackle, safety equipment and galley implements.


We had a couple of minor mechanicals (fuel filter and boom gooseneck cotter pin failures), but nothing unexpected given the duration of our sailing trip. Also very high praise for the technical orientation and support from David George. The quality of the outfitting and level of maintenance on the boat gave us the confidence to fully explore the BVI, USVI and SVI and made for an awesome family adventure.


Anyway, we would definitely recommend going with Seabbatical again, and will be in touch about the potential for exploring other destinations such as Belize or the Leeward/Windwards for next year.

cheers Gavin
