The first thing we experienced in our charter through Capt Bill was his generous time talking with us before our sail, not only about his yacht but also offering suggestions on our itinerary. It had been some ten years since our last bareboat and we greatly appreciated his patience. On our arrival at check in, it was clear how well maintained and clean he kept Lorikeet. Every detail of our floating hotel was properly prepared with comfortable linens and towels both paper and cotton, a fully appointed galley with pots pans stemware and wine bottle opener. Every system on the yacht delivered without flaw, from the furling sails to the diesel sipping engine, from the water system to the electric windlass ... which we used a lot. Our four spectacular days aboard Lorikeet coincided with traditional spring break; marina slips were surprisingly scarce. Not so the beautiful anchorages around Lake Worth and the ICW. Our first day spent offshore along Palm Beach ended in a quiet anchorage beside the architecturally breathtaking Flagler Museum. We also would recommend the free anchorage of North Lake Worth in the picturesque, peaceful cove to the east of the channel. While every bridge operator we encountered added to pleasure of our trip, Capt. Bill is the real deal. He managed to exceed our expectations on every measure. We look forward to our next charter abroad his Lorikeet.
Our family rented S/V Lorikeet over spring break for a trip to the West End, Bahamas (our first sail to a foreign country). This trip for us was one our kiddos will talk about forever. Lorikeet was the perfect vessel for us, out fitted with ever comfort one could want for their passage. She even came with the extras… snorkel gear, full kitchen, extra towels and blankets. Captain Bill provides all the systems knowledge for Lorikeet, and great local information about the West Palm Beach area. He also stocks the boat with every part that you could need for passage making. Lorikeet is a confident little ship, perfect for making lasting memories. Be sure to pack your camera for a vacation you will never forget!!
I could not say enough about our experience. Bill was an excellent host and ver communicative prior to and during our day at sea. He had videos prepared detailing the particulars of his vessel. He was very welcoming and answered all of our questions. The boat itself was fantastic! It was very clean. Everything functioned well. The vessel had very modern equipment that made the sail experience even better such as: autopilot, furling main sail, B&G navigation and depth, comfortable seating. We had 10+kn wind speed which moved us about 4kn on a beam reach with a slight lean. It was very calm and comfortable for our guests. We are looking forward to renting with Bill again.
Lorikeet is a beautifully maintained, well appointed, and fully equipped boat. She is truly one of the best boats I have ever chartered. She is in great condition and spotlessly clean. Bill, the owner, is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I look forward to chartering her again.
Great boat, Bill is a super nice and kind host! We rented the boat for a longer trip to sail to the Bahamas, starting from Palm Beach. We had two experienced sailors on board and thus captained the boat ourselves. Frist, we spent a few days in the Intracoastal Waterway, which is the way to go when heading towards Miami. There are several marinas where one can stay over night and visit one of the plenty seaside dining restaurants. An outlet towards the sea paves the way to the Bahamas, and with the right wind we reached the Bahamian West End within one day. We staid for two days, explored the Island and enjoyed coconuts and Bahama Mamas before we headed back to the US. The boat is in a great condition, comfortable and has everything one needs for a longer trip. We fit six people having two people sharing one booth which worked out very well as we know each other. Bill supplied us with bed sheets and towels, and was always available for questions regarding boat, customs or adjustment in the arrival time. 5/5 recommend without hesitation!
Capt. Bill is a fantastic Capt. I haven't sailed before and did not want to attempt without a Capt. I found the right choice. Capt. Bill informed us the of lines on the boat and let us navigate. The boat is very clean and well maintained. I would highly suggest Capt. Bill and his boat. Great person with the love and knowledge to sail.
Bill was an amazing host, he was very informative helpful friendly and provided us with an awesome experience
