A couple days ago one of the frequent visitors to our blog, Chris, made a comment about posting pictures of the crew area
“Crew quarters seem to be some hidden, mystical place in which pictures can not be taken or posted. To truly show off a yacht, every area must be shown so that a prospective buyer knows what they are buying.”
To which another visitor, Mark, replied
“Chris, You totally cracked me up with your line about crew quarters being a “mystical place in which pictures can not be taken or posted”.. that is so true. Nobody shows them ever, it’s like the quarters are so dismal and so dreary they are embarrassed to show them – a veritable Guantanamo bay of quarters comes to mind.”
Both were excellent comments and a reminder to me. When your around our boats all day as I am you tend to overlook/forget some of the basic design exectution that we do better than our competition. The crew quarters is one of those areas of the yacht that we pride ourself in designing, detailing and outfiting better than anyone. Why? Simple we want our yachts to appeal to the best crew available. They are an integral part to the success of our company. Without a good crew the owners experience is compromised and the result is he can get frustrted or even worse gets out of boating alltogether.
Thanks again to Chris and Mark for reminding me of that “mystical place”.
