Lagoon 560 Amazing Blues catamaran yacht  accommodates 8 guests in 4 beautiful and spacious queen guest cabins, or the crew is happy to give up their twin bunk cabin if your group has a need for it with singles. Great for groups of families or friends, Lagoon 560 Amazing Blues catamaran yacht offers snorkeling, fishing, swimming or just catching a tan on the trampolines!

The yacht is lovely and clean, being a 2015 model, also shows very well. The yacht does not feel cluttered in any way, which the spacious cabins the Lagoons are known for. There is great seating and lounging areas all over the yacht, from the trampolines to the cockpit and a great fly bridge to watch the sunset with a cocktail or a glass in hand.

John and Shirelle definitely get the award for best smiles at the yacht show last week.

“Captain  John has sailed extensively throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean including St Martin, St Barth’s, Anguilla, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guadeloupe. He is a keen diver and is especially enthusiastic about charter guests who want to explore the undersea world. When underway with a nice stiff breeze, he goes full sail, letting the yacht slice through the waves, often with guests enjoying a turn at the helm. At the end of an exciting day theres nothing more sublime than relaxing on the aft deck, tropical cocktail in hand, and discussing tomorrows adventures.

As a charter Captain, Johns goal is to create a homey environment where people feel safe and comfortable. People have always complemented us on how relaxed they felt on our yacht. We aim to create a vacation where CEO’s, doctors, and parents can just let go and feel like kids again. His motto: A positive life is a happy life.

Chef/mate Shirelle  was raised in Israel, in a small town where people cared a lot about nature. Her family grew their own organic fruits and vegetables. She believes that there is no substitute for the freshest, local ingredients when designing a menu. When she was 20 years old she moved to a picturesque surfing town in the coast. There, she was completely captivated by the vastness and beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. She plunged into water sports with zeal; sailing, paddle boarding, diving, and snorkeling.

On shore, cooking was always an important event in her family. She recalls, We always used to host a lot of guests for dinner. From the time that I was a young kid I was there to help my mother with meal preparation for the crowd. I enjoyed being in the kitchen with her. She was a very talented, creative cook and taught me all different types of cuisine from all over the world. While Shirelles favorite culinary style is Mediterranean, she can easily cater to lots of different preferences, from Asian cuisine to American comfort food. In fact, Shirelle majored in nutrition and holistic studies in college and has expertise in special diets.

As a stewardess, Shirelle aims to make Amazing Blues a home away from home for her guests. The yacht has a superb layout, whether guests want to be together, or find a little personal space. There are lots of toys on board and Shirelle is a patient instructor for guests who want to try something new. She says, I am really relaxed and easy going. Whatever guests need Im there for them. I love making people happy and serving great food is my way to show happiness and love.”

One other thing to note, is that Shirelle is happy to do a yacht version of as close to Kosher as you can get if you are looking for that style of cooking.

H2o Trips

I personally ran a 10 passenger charter yacht in the British Virgin Islands for 20 years and did over 500 charters. This coupled with the fact that I have personally stepped  aboard each of the several hundred yachts that I represent  and inspected the vessel as well as  quizzed the crews makes my help to you unconditionally qualified to be up to date, informed and unbiased. Many in our industry simply rely on information that they have gotten from either the internet or from our other “trade” sources. I am here for the express purpose of finding the correct match for you and your family’s needs. What I tell or show you is what I have recently seen or personally photographed myself. I do not rely upon information and pictures from 5 year old brochures.  Our service is completely free to you and there is absolutely no obligations to book through us. Please let me help make your vacation the vacation of a lifetime, after all, yachting IS our world.
