"Our  “captained” cruise aboard Latitude was a very enjoyable experience and one we very much hope to repeat! The boat is very well equipped and meticulously maintained, and she handled the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico quite well. Captain Stan was attentive to our needs and let us help trim the sails or just sit back and bask in the glorious sun and sea air.  We hope to visit Sarasota again soon and take another excellent cruise aboard Latitude!!"
