This beautiful, custom ketch is a treat to experience. Mac and Renee couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We had a great trip and expect to make another next year.

We took an afternoon sail aboard the Black Duck yesterday, three adults. We really had a wonderful few hours sailing up and down the key. Mac and Renee were fun to be with and lunch was great. Would recommend it.
