25+ years of experience: That experience translates into operational excellence for you. We have “been there, done that” over and over again. We know what it takes to deliver an incentive program that appears seamless. We tune into the fine details, infuse our work with creativity and zest, and plan for the unanticipated. Plus, in the words of one of our incentive company partners, we're just "plain fun."
We are more than just pretty yachts: Most companies give you the yachts and wave "Bon Voyage". We partner with you every step of the way - proposal development, custom designing the program and itinerary, selecting the yachts, pre-program planning and enrollment, on-site operations, and post-program evaluation. To us, the onsite operations are key. That is where our expertise is invaluable... delivering a program that surpasses everyone's expectations.
The faces behind the company: Trish Cronan and Captain Brad Lavigne, are the company’s founders and sole owners. Our lives have been "all about yachts" since 1980 when we first entered the industry as captain and crew on various charter yachts in the Caribbean and New England. We launched our shoreside yacht charter company in 1983 and made a splash in 1986 when 50 major companies and over 7,000 people cast off with us to celebrate the Centennial of the Statue of Liberty. Since then, we have specialized in corporate yachting incentive programs and groups and have hundreds of delighted clients in our wake. Just take a look at our client list to the right.
What you can count on us for: When you arrange a group with Ocean Getaways, you will work directly with either Trish or Brad, and our aim is to make every aspect of working with us carefree. How we do that is to listen to you carefully, respond quickly, think creatively, plan with precision, and smile often. We are passionate about what we do and look forward to sharing the wonders of yachting with you.
