“After an intense working year, a summer holiday aboard a yacht is the perfect relaxation for us. Yvonne from Fraser Yachts understood us well and proposed the best boat and itineraries for us. We’ve cruised around Croatian shore last year and Tuscan archipelago, Corsica this year on Haze, a modern, comfortable, beautiful yacht. Captain Tim, calm, kind, reliable, and his crew, charming, enthusiastic, all smiling, took care of us perfectly on both cruises. We are grateful to Yvonne for her empathy, attention to the details and hard work”.
