SeaDream Yacht Club wins top Conde Nast Traveler Award for 2006

SEADREAM YACHT CLUB with its twin ultra luxury mega-yachts SEADREAM I and SEADREAM II, has been named the �World�s Best Small Passenger Shipping Line� in the prestigious Cond� Nast Traveler Reader�s Choice Poll for 2006.

The annual poll, now in its 18th year, is considered by industry observers to be the most prestigious in the world and honors the best cruise lines, cities, islands, hotels, resorts, airlines and car rental agencies. More than 30,000 subscribers responded to this year�s survey.

In this poll, SEADREAM also received the highest score overall for operators of either small or large vessels and was the only passenger shipping company included in the publication�s listing of the 100 Best-of-the-Best travel experiences---in other words, the best seagoing vacation product in the world regardless of size.

SEADREAM YACHT CLUB operates the twin ultra luxury mega-yachts SEADREAM I and II in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and South America.

In accepting the award from Ivana Trump in New York last night, Larry Pimentel, President, CEO and Co-owner of SEADREAM stated:

�It is my great pleasure to accept this coveted award in behalf of all of my SEADREAM colleagues---all staff members aboard our two yachts and all of those ashore---especially SEADREAM�s principal owner Atle Brynestad, who has always provided the encouragement and support for us to continually strive to achieve a higher standard of excellence.� In his acceptance remarks, the SEADREAM executive also cited retail travel agents as being a major element in the company�s success. �SEADREAM YACHT CLUB was born only five years ago,� he told the audience at the New York City event. �The date was September 1, 2001---precisely the wrong time. Just ten days later Atle Brynestad and I were questioning whether we may have just made the biggest mistake of our professional lives. We persevered and with a small dedicated staff we turned our attention to creating the finest small luxury passenger line operation in the world.

Some of you may remember the inspiring children�s story called The Little Engine that Could. It recounts how over great obstacles a tiny but resolute little train engine, huffs and puffs its way over a very high mountain and succeeds through sheer determination.

I believe The Little Engine that Could is a fitting metaphor for SEADREAM YACHT CLUB. In effect, we are The Little Yachts that Could. This award is proof that we have succeeded,� he stated.
