Great Family Weekend trip to Montebello
Capt Moe was a very chilled and pleasant person to deal with. I wasn’t totally comfortable with motor yachts so we did a day of training, docking, anchoring etc until I was comfortable. The boat worked like a charm and we had no issues piloting it safely with minimum “crew” input. Anchoring along the way our kids had great fun swimming off the boat and using the dingy to explore the shore. If you want to keep costs low, stick close to Ottawa and anchor in a cove. Montebello is gorgeous but meant more for million dollar boats. It’s a great way to get your start in motor-yachting and Moe is a perfect gentleman. Anchors away! Cheers!
