|Broker Report: On Board Red Dragon in the Seychelles|
Claire van der Vorm at the Cecil Wright management company recently spent a few days in the Seychelles aboard the 170-foot Alloy sailing yacht Red Dragon.
"Having seen first hand how Capt. Ben Marshall and his crew operate, I cannot recommend them highly enough," she reports. "They keep the Dragon in a state of perfection but are also great with kids, never too busy for a water-gun fight, piggy back, treasure hunt or a game of beach rugby. They pull out all the stops for their guests."
Van der Vorm says the Red Dragon crew recently welcomed the return of New Zealand-born chef Morgan Lonegran, who is trained to a three-star Michelin level, is passionate about baking and pastries, and has some serious sushi-making skills.
Red Dragon is accepting charters in the Seychelles through mid-April. She will be chartering in the East Mediterranean this summer before returning to the Seychelles for the winter 2014-15 season. The lowest weekly base rate for eight guests is €175,000.
