The Lagoon 500

The Lagoon 500 has generous living space, Queen sized semi-island beds (6'9" x 5'3") and a great cockpit space which is ideal for shared Cruising Class charters.

A unique hull and bridge-deck designs combine to provide excellent offshore sailing, performance and comfort which adds to the fun for our members who wish to take the helm.

The Lagoon 500 is a thoroughly modern cruising catamaran, a perfect addition to our fleet!

AVAILABILITY: Antigua

The Privilege 51

Philippe Jeantot, (twice world champion in single-handed sailing and founder of the famous Vendee Globe round-the-world race), designed the original Privilege cruising catamaran for his family to live aboard: comfort, strength and security were the basic criteria.

Privileges were a perfect addition to our fleet and formed a major part of our original expansion program.

As our Captains will tell you, in honour of Philippe Jeantot, the Privilèges are fast fast fast!

AVAILABILITY: Antigua

The TradeWinds 50

The Fountaine Pajot, custom built, TradeWinds 50's are 50 foot of luxurious catamaran just as at home in blue water sailing as for island hopping. They are perfect for our Cruising Class shared charters and as such you will see more and more of them join our fleet over the next few years.

They are built upon an extended Salina 48 Evolution designed by Berret-Racoupeau.

AVAILABILITY: Bequia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

The TradeWinds 52

Light, spacious, with high-level performance and in the image of her sister ships, the TradeWinds 52 offers you all the pleasures of the sea, both under sail and at anchor where relaxation goes hand in hand with comfort and pleasure.

The space on-board has been optimised in order to provide magnificent accommodation. The saloon and cockpit have generous storage areas, as do the passageways, and the light-filled, spacious cabins.

Air Conditioning

Most of our guests want air conditioning on our cruises. Whilst this is understandable, we also cruise in some of the most precious, unpolluted waters in the world and as a company, we have a responsibility to try to protect this for both our guests and the next generation.

We believe we have found a good balance between minimizing environmental impact, and giving you a level of comfort aboard.

We encourage you to open hatches and feel the breeze. It's that very breeze that allows us to sail in the first place!
