  • Ask the captain if gas is included in the price of your trip. Some owners include gas in the price and some don't, so be sure to ask.

    40' VanDutch Ultra Luxury Day Yacht in Newport Beach for Day Parties, Birthdays, Engagements - Its Perfect

    The Van Dutch is an awesome boat! If you are looking for luxury and an awesome experience on the water look no further. I booked the Skyfall for a surprise proposal to my fiancée and it was better than I could have imagined. Captain Jim was great and very knowledgeable.

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    9 of us (4 adults and 5 kids) spent 3 amazing hours on the water. The kids could not believe how magical the day was - swimming with sea turtkles, having spinner dolphins splash around the boat, and seeing whales in the distance. And then everyone took a little nap on our way back to the marina. ... length of room for our crew in this comfortable and size able boat. Would do it again tomorrow!!!!
