say a massive thank you for Sunday.
Everybody thought you were wonderful
- a great host, interesting to listen to and full
of attention to detail. Steve loved the fact that
you took time out to explain a few things to him
and give him hints and tips.
So thank you so much and please ensure you pass
my / our gratitude on to Laura who had an amazing
knack of providing a great service but being out
of sight at the same time: rather neat trick.

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our
morning on the boat. It was a fantastic experience
for the whole family. We always knew we lived a
beautiful part of the world, but your guide of
the local coastal area revealed truly beautiful
hidden treasures that we would have never known
Both you and Keeley were professional, friendly
and welcoming, creating a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.
The children were impressed that they were allowed
to sit at the front of the boat, they felt very
The weather was glorious and your extensive and
informative knowledge of the local area made this
so much more than a sight seeing trip, for adults
and children alike.
The children were delighted,
if not a little nervous, when ‘Dad’ was
given the opportunity to take the helm.
We all enjoyed the thrills and excitement when
the real power of the boat was put to the test,
and picking up a couple of friendly jet-skiers
in the wake only added to the experience. It was
a shame that it all had to end so soon.
Once again, I would like to say thank you for
such a fantastic morning, this was a wonderful
experience, and one that I would most certainly
recommend to others.

would like to thank you for the fantastic time
we had on Nirvana. As a corporate event it was
really something special and different. Both ourselves
and our guests were most impressed by the smooth
and efficient organization and the professional
attitude throughout the day. The boat was great
fun and very exciting, lunch was perfect and the
hospitality warm and friendly. The trip to see
the sea birds and the time at anchor in Studland
Bay was really enjoyable allowing us to relax and
take in the whole experience. Your knowledge of
the area and some of it’s history is very
impressive, and was most informative and interesting.
It all added up to a very successful event for
us and we hope to make it a regular on the corporate

I would like to thank you for the
excellent charter you organised for us last Saturday.
The trip across to the Isle of Wight was very much
enjoyed by all the family especially my son in
law and our grandchildren who were extemely excited
to have been trusted to take the helm for a while.
The food and service were first class and you and
Sue made us feel very much at ease from the moment
we came aboard. A memorable day out.
A quick note to thank you and Charlie
for looking after myself and our guests so well
We had a most enjoyable, comfortable yet exhilarating
afternoon and would recommend the service you offer

We are a family group of all abilities, Grandparents,
Parents & Daughters. We booked the short trip
on our eldest daughters 21st birthday as an experience
on a power boat.
Mark was professional and very welcoming both
during the booking service and the actual trip.
He was very safety conscious which was re-assuring
as we are inexperienced land-locked Midlanders!!!
Marks commentary about Poole Bay was interesting
and informative. It was a perfect start to a day
of celebrations for our eldest daughters 21st birthday & there
is no doubt that we will be back for more!

experience from start to finish. Mark took time
when booking to explain all the options then kept
in contact updating us on the weather forecast
When the day arrived so did the sun and we got
exactly what Mark promised us, he even let us have
a go driving, which is a real thrill. The drinks
flowed, the food was fit for a king, the scenery
stunning and the sun kept shining. What a day thanks
booked Nirvana for a full day charter for my friends
stag do and right from the initial contact with
Mark everything was a success. All the joys of
owning a luxury powerboat without the expense of
owning one! The boat was very accommodating for
the 9 of us on board, excluding the skipper and
deckhand with plenty of space for storing the food
we had brought, including keeping the all important
champagne and beer cool! After being picked up
from Poole, we had a blast to Studland making full
use of those twin 260hp diesel engines. Following
anchoring in Studland Bay for lunch and a swim
we joined the hundreds of boats at Bournemouth
Pier to watch the fantastic air show, including
the red arrows, before a further blast up the coast
and return to Poole Quay. For a stag do it was
a perfect day time activity but I'm sure that I
could find plenty of other occasions in the future
that would warrant a phone call to Mark!
organise two Trimaran Regattas a year in Poole
Bay and am pleased to have used in numerous
occasions the MV Nirvana as our Committee Boat,
ably skippered and owned by Mark Everington.
His fine vessel provides an excellent starting
platform with its low line configuration, being
less prone to roll at anchor unlike other flying
bridge models. On one occasion he had to actually
rescue my own Tri following a rudder breakage.
However with superb boat handling and excellent
seamanship, he undertook the tow without difficulty
in tricky sea conditions and saved me the humiliation
of hitching a ride with that other well known
rescue service whose main HQ is in Poole Town!
I can assure anyone thinking of using the
services of Sea Events and going to sea in
Nirvana will be in very good hands.

Thank you for a great day out,
despite getting rather wet in the morning the
sun did shine and we got to relax with the
lovely spread that was put on! We were well
looked after and would definitely recommend
this to anyone who is after a relaxing day
Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd, Bournemouth
An excellent day spent on Nirvana.
Everything ran smoothly and the experience
was very much enjoyed by all guests. Mark's
knowledge of and enthusiasm for the area adds
to the enjoyment of the day. Food was excellent
and well presented too. Would thoroughly recommend

entertainment event that is a little different.

Having just got engaged I can think of no
better way to celebrate than a romantic cruise
around the South Coast onboard Nirvana! Whilst
the beautiful coast and setting sun set the
backdrop, the experience was made all the more
memorable by Mark’s knowledge of the
coastline, Keeley’s friendly but discrete
service and the amazing canapés and
champagne we enjoyed. Add all of this to the
thrill of being out on the sea in a genuine
performance motor boat and it made this an
experience we’ll never forget. In fact,
it was so good we’re going again next
big thank you from all of us (Vikki, Maurice,
Eileen and Brian) and me, of course, for a
wonderful day yesterday. We all thoroughly
enjoyed the whole day. Your local
knowledge of the surrounding area made a significant
impact on the day and made it extremely interesting
as well as enjoyable.
The lunch was great and
I must admit surpassed my expectations, I think
I was expecting more along the lines of sandwiches.
We all agreed that it was an extremely pleasant
way of spending a day, and for me, my birthday.
Mark, thank you for
an excellent, exciting and social day
on Wednesday. From the warm greeting
and the professional safety briefing
through to the attentive service from
the rather more attractive Becks, the
whole event was a great success. Warm
day, still waters, fantastic food and
drink, a reassuring Skipper, the Needles
lighthouse, anchoring off Alum Chine
for lunch and finally speeding off for
a tour of Swanage Bay and Poole. Fantastic.
Though a gale was threatened the day before, the Gods smiled
on us and were able to get out of Poole Harbour and blast out to sea before
mooring up for a champagne lunch in the sun off Studland beach. We spent the
afternoon cruising round the harbour, which turned out to be more exciting
than any of us had expected.
Mark was a fantastic host and skipper, and we all had a really
excellent and enjoyable day out.
We would both like to say that despite the weather really not being on our
side, curtailing the original plans to see the jurassic coast. We enjoyed a
Learning about the local area, taking in the sights and sounds that one doesn't
get to see from land, all in the comfort of such a beautiful and well appointed
boat ensure the time flew by.
We could honestly say we felt perfectly safe even when the seas got rough,
and this was only aided by how comfortable you made us feel, although my newly
wedded wife did look concerned when you let me have control for a
Thank You for a great experience!
