Several months ago someone posted a negative review about Azzurra. If I remember correctly they had some health issues during their charter, but also indicated they had some maintenance issue, which was very unlike our experience in chartering with CYOA. We are thinking about chartering Azzurra next Jan. and was wondering if anyone had recent experience with chartering Azzurra?

I believe there was a steering gear problem with both of the CYOA Mahe's that got fixed. A couple of years ago I distinctly remember Capt. Jay showing me a gear box with gears that were pretty chewed up... he was replacing it.

So... That problem has been long since remedied.

I knew a couple who sailed one and said the boat gets tossed in waves, Hobby Horse.

I find that all of the cats tend to hobby horse close-hauled or with the bow into the waves.
The kids and grandkids LOVE to sit up on the trampoline during the run east up the coast south of St. Thomas.
They all get soaked every time the bows go in, and there is much squealing and laughing.
