M Private offers access to TradeWinds Cruise Club through the recently announced
partnership with The Crane Resort points program

CALGARY, AB (September 4, 2013) – M Private Residences, Canada’s top equity destination club, is pleased to share that members now have access to the exclusive TradeWinds Cruise Club, a luxury chartered yacht company, as part of the recently announced points program and partnership with The Crane Resort.

Why limit luxurious vacation experiences to land-based options? That was the question running through the minds of John Beckel, General Manager of M Private Residences, and the Board of Directors during a recent meeting. “I really wanted to find a way to continue delivering the same luxurious and memorable vacation experiences our M Members have come to know, but in a new and innovative way. And who hasn’t dreamt of sailing across the world to the most exotic locations?” said Beckel.

The TradeWinds Cruise Club is a great way to meet outgoing, adventurous people who are looking for a different experience from their usual hotel or resort vacation. A vacation on a TradeWinds luxury chartered yacht is like checking into a floating luxury hotel. Each yacht is crewed by a professional captain and chef who will prepare you first-class cuisine and ensure you’re well hydrated with their well-stocked open bar.

“We are really privileged to have this partnership with The Crane Resort and their points program which allows us to offer added value and more options for our M Members,” said Beckel. “Using the same points they would use to book at The Crane, members now have the option of booking a cruise of a lifetime to some of the most magnificent, exotic locations throughout the Caribbean, Central America, and the Mediterranean Sea on a luxury crewed catamaran.”

Using The Crane points, M Members will be able to reserve two cabins using one booking type and seven plan days. Crane points cover the cabin cost, while members pay TradeWinds the all-inclusive meal fee which covers all drinks and all meals with the exception of two evenings. The all-inclusive fee ranges from $925 – $1,050 per person per week, depending on the class of catamaran.

The three classes of catamarans include:
• Cruising Class (45ft – 56ft)
Accommodates 6-10 guests and is located in the Caribbean, Central America, and Mediterranean Sea

• Luxury Class (59ft)
Custom-designed and aptly named “TradeWinds 59”, this catamaran is located in the British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines

• Flagship Class (70ft)
Named “TradeWinds Galathea 70”, this uniquely designed catamaran is only located in Guadeloupe
