Broker Cordy (4th from the right below) had the pleasure of a night cruise and dinner aboard SUPERTOY in July 2019, and was astounded by not only the yacht but also the devoted, diligent crew.
Based in the South of France, Captain John (above) and his team have been together for over 6 years and they work together like a well-oiled machine. The service is attentive but discreet and totally on point.
Captain John (the middle gentleman) loves to take clients to anchor. In his own words, ‘That’s the idea of being on a boat, right?!’ So we were treated to a starlit dinner at anchor between the Cannes islands! There really is nothing more special than spending time on the water away from your day to day life and feeling like you have rejuvenated.
Service and Food
Chef Gary’s food is highly accomplished, hostess Edina is very professional and effortlessly ensured that we wanted for nothing during our time on board.
SUPERTOY is surprisingly spacious and offers incredible value for money. Her best feature is her huge flybridge area complete with bar and vast sunbathing pads.
Captain John also helms the boat from up here so it’s the perfect area to get to know the crew whilst cruising along the French Riviera.
Her aft deck table very comfortably seats all 10 guests and her interior volume is incomparable to her contemporaries.
We wholeheartedly recommend the fabulous SUPTERTOY. With some high season availability remaining, please contact Cordy to book your charter on board for summer 2019!
