Bonaparte is a classic 1964 Sparkman and Stevens design build by the Burger shipyard, both american icon. In short a beautiful boat that we bought the day we saw it!!! a ''coup de coeur''. There is something absolutely magical to be on classic boat with graceful lines and varnished mahogany caprail and handrail..also the quality of construction of this vessel is from another era and still so well thought out…
Its all about true yachting atmosphere !

First Class all the way!! Day charter, Nassau, Bahamas
We just returned from a weeklong family vacation on Paradise Island and we all agree that the highlight of our vacation was the day we spent with Francois and Annette on Bonaparte. First of all, the boat is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable and spacious enough for our large group, then add to that these completely wonderful, gracious people that spoiled us the entire time... Perfection! We enjoyed mimosas and a light breakfast of fresh fruit and delicious croissants on our cruise out to Rose Island. Once we were anchored, we were faced with a dilemma.... What to do?!! Snorkel, jet ski, SUP or kayak? Decisions, decisions. Or should we just relax on the lounge chairs on the deck? Go explore the beautiful beach on the island? Fortunately Francois, along with some help from crewmate Ashton, couldn't have been more accommodating to make sure a good time was had by all!
Once we were done frolicking we were all ravenous for lunch, but what we were served was beyond our expectations. Annette truly is an amazing chef! The tenderloin and lobster tails were absolutely delicious, not to mention the gravy and side dishes. The potato salad was so ridiculously good we couldn't stop eating it! And for our daughters Annette made every kids favorite... Chicken tenders and French fries of course! Then she asked what we would like for dessert and our youngest yelled "chocolate cake"! Well guess what? Yes, Annette had even baked a chocolate cake. And of course you can't have chocolate cake without ice cream too! They thought of every little detail and had anticipated our every need (well, our every want, because I certainly didn't need chocolate cake! ). They even gave the girls hot chocolate and all of us blankets on the cruise back when it became a little chilly.
Our day on Bonaparte was wonderful, however it was Francois and Annette (and Marie of course!) that truly made it exceptional. It is the people you are with, not the place, that make the experience amazing and memorable. So, Francois, Annette and Marie, thank you so much for making our day a truly special and memorable one!
Michelle and the gang
I had the opportunity to experience a sunset dinner cruise aboard the Bonaparte on 12/6/2014. Myself and 9 'girlfriends' were enjoying ourselves in the Bahamas and were lucky enought to be referred to Francois and Annette. Their yacht is absolutely beautiful, warm and welcoming. They treated us like friends who were welcomed in their home while also treating us like royalty. Their hospitality was beyone measure and the food was delicious. I hope to be fortunate enough to 'set sail' with them again!
In early june 2014, my wife and I had the opportunities to join Francois and his partner Annette in Bahamas on Bonaparte, for a 7 days trip in the Exumas which was spectacular. We enjoyed the professional seamanship of Francois and Annette to discover these remote islands. We were totally in confidence during the entire trip.! Francois and Anette are so pleasant hosts, always trying to please our heart desire.... Francois is a very responsible and level character, always in a good mood, he likes to have a lot of fun while being on a constant watch. Annette is the most gracious stewardess and cook....she constantly look after all the little details aboard to make us feel so confortable aboard this magnificient classic Vessel... A bientôt mes amis!
