About This Boat

TABOO is a family operated yacht. For twenty years Miranda and David, and now Travers ( their son ) and always a pretty Stewardess are your crew. Your sailing vacation is the life they love to live in the Caribbean. They are considered the leaders in the industry, and offer a very tidy show while you are with them on TABOO..The great thing about chartering an owner operated yacht is...they want you to return and sail with them again, and of course 90% of their business is repeat and referral. Miranda & David are both professional photographers. They will edit 300 pics of the vacation and will send them in DVD format with music, plus a full movie of your experience aboard and on land in DVD ...HDV..with surround sound free of charge!.. This is a real plus and added value to take home.

David with 20 years in the Rock'n'Roll industry in New York and London, has an ear for any conversation, and can tell a few tales himself. With his many Atlantic crossings, and sailing trip all around New Zealand, England, and the Channel Islands, not to mention 20 years sailing the Caribbean, you are assured total safety. With David at the helm you can relax. His only qualification.....experience!

Miranda has a few tricks up her sleeves as well. Her past experience in designing menus and buying food for large Vancouver Hotels may help to explain why 90% of the charter guests return again and again!..quality in a tasty cuisine. She always has a smile on her face and has a vast experience in sailing. Miranda studies your food information sheet, and every detail is covered.

Our first yacht was called Whakatane..60' long, but we didn't need crew for her. When we built TABOO, she definitely need crew because of her size. Some Stewardesses really shine, and they are friends forever for us. We go to Vancouver once a year, and we all meet and have lunch together. The year 1999, & 2001 we had Dani Brown. A beautiful blonde girl from Vancouver. She was such great crew. Dani was with us a full two years. Then there was Felicity Buskard for 2005. She was beautiful and fun loving. Travers and her were never apart. Felicity was great in the galley and on deck..What a score she was! Then in 2006 we had Sarah Racine. From Vancouver as well. Sarah was alive, always smiling and excellent crew. She was exactly what we wanted for 2006. She looked so cute and the guests loved her. But then...these three were all loved by the guests...
