AXIA received Great Reviews from the Newport Charter Show:

  • “Exceptional food, exceptional yacht, and extremely congenial group….what more could a good broker ask for….perfection!”
  • “I loved the whole experience on board. The friendliness of the Captain and Crew was only outdone by Brigid’s exquisite food. Her choice of wines to complement each course was amazing. I think AXIA is properly priced and hope that I can find the right client to book her. She is a beautiful yacht.”
  • “The food was outstanding! The pairing of wines was unexpected and definitely was a wow factor. The whole manner of service and ambiance onboard AXIA was 5 Stars! ++”
