“A perfect day charter.”

We booked Calypso, skippered by Mark and ably assisted by Steve, for a day charter on our daughter's 30th birthday. It certainly made for a very special, memorable and hugely enjoyable day - undoubtedly helped by fabulous weather. A lovely stop for swimming and lunch at Chapman's Pool along the Jurassic Coast. Mark is a great host; his barbeque cooking skills are as good as his boat handling skills, and Calypso was the perfect boat for our party of eleven - lots of room to move around although everyone inevitably wanted to be up on the sun deck!
All in all, a perfect day and we would thoroughly recommend Mark and Calypso for a charter out of Poole Harbour. Many thanks again, Mark.

Comfortable yacht for weekend break. Lots to do in area. Great trip with Mark and Chris and opportunity to swim in the chilly waters off Brownsea Island.

Rachel and her group have been wonderful guests and I've made the best of the yacht and the local area. We really enjoyed doing the private charter with them to the amazing Studland where everyone had a swim. Come and stay again anytime!

“Would recommend to everyone!”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent a wonderful weekend on board the Calypso. The experience of living on a boat was a first for us and our teenage children and it didn’t disappoint. You expect limitations on a boat but the extensions of outdoor life it offered – even though we were moored in the harbour for most of our stay – was undoubtedly one of the highlights … along with the glorious weather and the delights of Poole Quay. Two double bedrooms and two ‘cabin’ bedrooms offered ample sleeping space. The indoor living space is adequate with all the cooking facilities you would need. 2 en-suite bathrooms complete the indoor quarters – therefore all ‘taken-for-granted’ tick boxes of a holiday home are checked. The outdoor space is what transforms this home into a luxury stay; with a mid-deck providing sheltered outdoor space and the upper deck offering a sun trap, you are free to pick and choose.
Mark was a wonderful, knowledgeable host and skippered us - with a special shout-out for his crew mate Steve - on a 3 hour boat trip out around the local coastline, anchoring up safely so that we could swim off the back of the boat maxing out on the laughter and enjoyment of a wonderful few family hours together.
Poole Quay is a lovely setting to watch the world go by. Plenty of holidaymakers during the day, yet peaceful at night. Pubs, restaurants, shops and café’s aplenty, everything is within easy reach.
Thanks Mark, we loved it! We look forward to coming back next year!

“Birthday cream tea”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A completely random, last minute booking for my birthday, but absolutely fabulous! Can't recommend it enough! Fabulous service, kind care and attention from captain and crew and a birthday to remember! Where else would you rather have afternoon tea?? Thank you so much for a great afternoon!

We spent a weekend on board Calypso to celebrate a milestone birthday with our two dogs. Mark was very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The afternoon cruise to Brownsea Island and Old Harry Rocks was great.

“Amazing day”

Thank you for a fantastic day out. You not only managed to give us excellent service but the surprise renewal of vows for my husband was absolutely magical and your tentative ways for making us feel like royalty was second to none. You certainly made it a day we will never forget and the photos you sent us were amazing. We wish you and your family a merry Christmas and will definitely be using your services again next year.
Kind regards Wendy and Darrell.
