BURIALS AT SEA
(Scattering)

This day is about you, your deceased loved one,  and your surviving family and friends.  With that in mind, we will  CUSTOMIZE to meet your needs and budget.

 

RFC Yacht Charter owners, retired Army officers Tom and Karen Hallett are particularly well suited for burials at sea, including those with military honors.  They have served in ministry for nearly 30 years in both civilian and military sectors, and have the experience necessary to make your memorial sailing spectacular.

THE ANGEL DEL MAR

Like its owners, the Angel Del Mar is perfectly suited to ministering to you as you honor the life of your loved one, laying them to rest at sea.  The Angel is a luxuriously appointed 70' motor yacht, capable of carrying up to 12 guests to your loved one's scattering point.  You and your guests will travel in comfort and style enjoying the amenities of the Angel, and the scenery of the Saint Lucie Inlet.

All of our scattering packages include:

  • Transport upon the Angel Del Mar to and from the Harborage Yacht Club in Start, FL to a scattering point 3.5 miles off shore.

  • Time at the scattering point where you and your guests will be invited to scatter your loved one's ashes.  Following the scattering, the captain will circle the scatter point allowing time for final farewells.

  • Nautical chart commemorating the scattering
