Catamaran Altesse is a beautiful 2013 Lagoon 560, able to accommodate 8 guests in 4 queen size cabins, or 3 queen cabins and a fun bunk room for kids.

Lagoon 560s are widely acknowledged as the best charter boats on the market, due to their bright and spacious cabins, beautiful internal relaxation areas and wide range of comfortable lounging and dining spaces.

But Catamaran Altesse is even better. In 2015 she went through a full refit to specifically enhance the experience for charter guests, through additions such as full dining capability on the flybridge with an extra BBQ and dining table installed, enhancements to the interior to give her a sophisticated European twist and a custom built ‘champagne deck’ which extends the cockpit and offers a unique and hugely popular additional relaxation and jumping area.

She also has a brand new 70HP dinghy, inclusive diving for up to five guests, all new water toys (including an 8 man floating island), new linen, crockery and furnishings throughout reflecting the refined taste of the French owner, not to mention a wine cellar including a range of superior French organic wine.

So whether you want activity and exhilaration, or rest and relaxation, Altesse and her award winning crew, who have been chartering in the BVI for 5 years, will ensure that you get everything you wished for and more.

Guest Reviews

Happy charter guests on Altesse! Happy charter guests on Altesse!

“Our trip on Altesse was magical. Of course the BVIs provide the foundation, with natural beauty at every turn, but to top it off Altesse is lovely and immaculate, with open deck spaces and multiple, comfortable cushioned areas for conversation, reading, sunning and afternoon naps.

The four staterooms are spacious, comfortable and private. That said, Captain and Chef Rich and Sarah are the reason our vacation was truly special. They are a seamless team, radiating intelligence, warmth and charm on a daily basis.

They attended to our every need, even before we knew we “needed” it. They guided us to stunning anchorages and wonderful snorkeling/dive sites. Sarah’s meals were each an event; delicious, creative and beautifully presented.

We could write MUCH more, but there is no need to add to perfection! We will definitely sail with Rich and Sarah again”

“Thanks for a great week aboard Altesse! Highlights for this group included fun games for the kids, lounging and jumping of the champagne deck, tubing and paddle board surfing, teenage dinghy driving, the “miracle” of the watermaker and of course the daily institution of captains cocktail hour.

The food was unquestionably the best we have had in the BVIs. Sarah incorporated all our food preferences, preparing meals that appealed to adults as well as kids, including homemade ice cream and an astounding Christmas Dinner complete with a whole roasted turkey and no fewer than seven sides.”

Crew

Crew for Altesse Crew for Altesse

Sarah and Richard are highly experienced, award winning charter crew who have completed more than 100 charters in the BVI and been presented with an award for Crew of the Year in 2012. Even more important than that their clients love them and want to keep sailing with this professional, enthusiastic and dedicated couple.

Richard is an accomplished yacht captain, sailor and divemaster. He has sailed extensively in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, but has developed an in-depth knowledge of the BVI, allowing him to adapt the charter to suit the guests on board and show them less frequented coves and bays as well as the hitting the top BVI spots at the best time of day. He has led more than 200 dives in the BVI and knows a large number of dive sites suitable for all levels of diver.

Sarah is the epitome of the perfect First Mate and Chef. She has professional culinary training, but it is her passion and love of food that makes her the amazing chef that she is. She loves nothing more than to cook food which people adore and is happiest when she is adapting her menu to suit the tastes of those on board. Like Richard, she is fantastic with people and makes everyone feel comfortable and at home.
