Great Day in December on the Bay

I just wanted to tell you how much our group, Human Good, enjoyed ourselves on the Legend on Friday. The weather co operated, pretty well, and we had a very, very enjoyable day on the water. Your crew were outstanding, particularly Michelle, who was both professional and convivial and did a great job with the food, beverages and photos. She was more than friendly and became part of our gang. Thanks for making this a wonderful and memorable experience.

A Memorable Trip

Eighteen family members helped scatter my parents' ashes off Marina del Rey. The crew of the Legend made it a memorable and wonderful experience. They were helpful, efficient, and kind. The scattering of the ashes was respectful and beautiful. I would recommend The Legend and her crew to anyone.

An Intimate Send Off

The Legend hosted our family member's burial at sea. The staff was very considerate of the occasion and maintained the highest level of respect and compassion for all of our guests. They are very generous hosts and I'm extremely happy with the service they provided.

Perfect Evening

Steve, Michelle, and Francisco were the perfect crew for my party of 26 folks. They took us out on the Legend boat for about 3 hours+ and we all had a great time. Michelle and Francisco were extremely attentive to my party; there at every turn when someone was running low on their drink, be it water, soft drink, wine or beer. They kept track of what we all preferred to drink. Michelle took may pictures through the evening and shared them to us the next day. Everyone on the party has commented in the subsequent days about how fun the boat was and how well run the operation was. We all had a great time and would do it again. It was really fun.

Everything could not have gone more perfectly

Hi Skip,I just wanted to thank you, Captain Leigh and Francisco for an exceptional afternoon. Everything could not have gone more perfectly. And we were escorted by a pod of dolphins, which was especially poignant because my mom loved looking out for them during our family’s annual vacations to Puerto Vallarta.Captain Leigh and Francisco provided impeccable service and were so sensitive to our emotional state and needs. Francisco perfectly gravitated between making sure we had everything we needed and keeping a respectful distance, and he did a beautiful job preparing my mom’s ashes.We are so grateful for your, Captain Leigh and Francisco’s hospitality and attention to every detail. And you were so kind to display the Duchess pillow and welcome mat. Thank you for making a dreaded and somber occasion perfect in every way.With gratitude,The Silk Family 

Mother's Day Family Cruise

We have chartered the Legend Yacht before and each year our experience deems better and better. We know that we are in good hands with Capt. Steve and 1st Mate Francisco. Thank you so much to the crew for showering us with impeccable hospitality and service. The cruising was perfect! It made our Mother's Day a day to remember!

HELFRIED’S Celebration of Life

Saying goodbye aboard The Legend

Thirteen of us boarded the legend with my husband, Bill’s ashes. The crew, especially Francisco, were friendly, welcoming, helpful & respectful of our mission The boat was beautiful, the snacks & drinks including wine were a special treat. The owner, Skip, was reassuring to my nervous inquiries prior to the day.

Scattering of Ashes

Our family was aboard The Legend October 25, 2018 for a cruise out to Catalina to celebrate the life of our late father. We had an amazing time. The Captain and Crew were absolutely delightful and catered to our every need. They were unbelievably accommodating as well as courteous. The yacht is stunning and comfortable no matter where you decide to enjoy the ride. We will definitely see Captain Skip and his crew again in the near future.

Celebrating Pop’s 77th Birthday

Our experience on The Legend was AWESOME and one that our family will be talking about for a long time. The service of the Capt. and Crew was World Class! We actually caught 99 Fish! (However 3 of them were lost at sea.) I would HIGHLY recommend Duchess Yacht Charters for your next event, we will definitely use them again!

The Legend

We, 20 family and friends, had a fabulous time celebrating my son’s 15th birthday aboard the gorgeous Legend. The boat, the captain and the crew were wonderful. Everything was perfect! Looking forward to another experience in the future.

My Mom’s Memorial

We chartered the Legend on 8/12/18 for our mother's memorial service to scatter her ashes at sea. We could not have chosen a better way to honor her final wishes. The boat was huge and better than we could have imagined and staff were wonderful. They took care of our every need and served great appetizers and wine. We were all so impressed. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who’s looking to do a memorial at sea, or a pleasure cruise.

Lasting Impression!

Where do I start? Our experience with The Legend was unforgettable. I had the idea to celebrate my father's 55th birthday on a Yacht about 4 days before his actual birthday. The team at The Duchess Yacht Charters was incredibly easy to work with and made the experience of booking so last minute stress-free. Our captain and crew were fantastic, accommodating and made the experience so much fun for my family and me. We loved The Legend and my dad had the best 55th birthday. Thank you Duchess team for an incredible experience!

AMAZING outing!


Just wanted to thank you for an AMAZING outing!! The team had a blast and your crew was Fantastic!!!! Such a great time. Thank you!!

Beyond 5 Stars

Skip and his crew are amazing to work with, and the Legend yacht is spectacular. It is very well appointed and the details and upkeep are impeccable. The Legend is an elegant and classic Cris Craft yacht that has been restored to perfection. Our group had a great time cruising outside the Marina Del Rey harbor and the inner port after sunset. The crew is very attentive, fun and engaging. The food and alcohol that were included in our package were top notch. We highly recommend this company and the yachts they have for charter. We can't wait for our next trip!!


Thank you soooooooooo much skip! Captain Steve and Mel I believe her name was! they were amazing, service beyond what I expected,  from cake, to the service of our own snacks we brought to the ordevours, and the drinks.... !

The Best!

Skip and his crew could not have been more accommodating to our family of 12 in attendance on Sunday, May 13th for the memorial to send our daughter Carol off on a tour around the world off The Legend along with beautiful rose petals. My husband has some physical challenges and everything was done to keep him safe and comfortable. The Duchess Yacht Charters is a 1st Class operation and we are sure to see Skip again.
