About Lagoon catamarans

Lagoon catamarans were formed in pursuit of the ultimate connection in mind – with ourselves, our loved ones and the world around us. Bringing the human experience to the seven seas, means they are able to unleash an unbridled sense of curiosity and instinctual need for quality. This is something Lagoon wouldn’t have accomplished without a collective passion for spectacular destinations and the journeys getting there.

As confirmed sailors, we all know that our boats have to be fast, comfortable and safe: seaworthy. We build them based on our love of the sea and the constant aim of good-quality work. We design them as if we were the future owners. As shipbuilders and sailors, it is part of our logic…

Lagoon 520 (2018) 'ISLAND HOPPIN' Your Crew

Bryan was born and raised in Jupiter, Florida where his love for the ocean began. As a teenager he would spend his days with his friends at the beach, often free diving just off of the shore or near the Jupiter Inlet for lobsters. After graduation Bryan spent a few years working in the hospitality industry, in various country clubs and restaurants but always yearned for more. At 21 he got a job as a deckhand on board a charter boat in St. Croix, USVI, and never looked back. Eventually working his way up to becoming a well respected catamaran sailing Captain. He is an avid adventurer who enjoys shark diving, sailing, hiking, and anything to do with the ocean. Bryan’s laid back but charismatic personality seems to be the perfect combo for entertaining and providing an excellent experience on board, and has a long list of great reviews from guests who were able to call Bryan their captain.

Patti grew up in Jupiter, Florida where she worked in the hospitality industry for several years at numerous restaurants in the south Florida area. In 2016 she met Bryan at a beach party and they immediately hit it off, spending the next several years traveling all throughout the states and even lived on St.Croix in the USVI for a year. They eventually were offered a dream job in 2020 on a charter catamaran in the USVI, and have worked in tandem since then. Patti enjoys cooking all kinds of cuisines and can easily work around any dietary restrictions one might have. On her off time she enjoys going to the beach to read a book or paddle board and also finds happiness in finding new recipes to try out for future guests.

Lagoon 520 (2018) 'ISLAND HOPPIN' Reviews
Larry, Kelly, Kristen, Devyn & McKenzie

Thank you so much for everything, it was soooooo much fun. I loved everything we did, especially the skiing and goat calling and helping me with my shark fear (but now I’m scared of walking on a beach with coconut trees). The food was so good, I don’t know how you ever made this food because it is literally the best food I’ve ever tasted. You guys played a big part in making this week so fun and always made us all laugh. It has been such a fun week and it is largely due to you guys.

Wow, what an amazing trip. We truly enjoyed ourselves and all the adventures. You guys made the vacation much more memorable. The mechanics of the trip were fine, but what made it a family memory was you guys. I’m sure you realize this but you become a big part of many families. This trip could have been nice but it was amazing because of your attention/guidance for our girls and us. You have a far greater impact on families than you realize. You helped us make memories we will cherish for years to come.

The Hices

The Hices had an absolutely wonderful vacation/adventure week! Thank you so much for sharing your home, your islands, your weather, your wisdom and hospitality with us! We are in awe of your sailing, scuba, free diving skills…. As well as your culinary expertise and awesome cocktail recipes. Feeding our family (ie. Rocco aka “Papa Ya”) was a feat in itself and you pulled it off perfectly. I am sure we made some incredible memories this week – and we are already excited to come back to the BVI’s and Better Days to make some more – with your help of course! Wishing you both a wonderful rest of the season – and hopefully some relaxing days ahead.

Suzi, Mark, Ben, Harriet, Stephanie & Joe

Thanks for the best time ever!!! Already planning for our next adventure! Y’all are the best!

We had a wonderful time…. Of course! Can’t wait to come back and do it again. Y’all are the best!

Thanks for everything! We’ve been on several crewed charters in the BVI and y’all are absolutely THE BEST CREW!

Hope to see you again!

The Peverall Family

Thank you so much for the best vacation ever! We had so much fun. The food was amazing and the diving was excellent! The boys had a ball tubing and wakeboarding. We will miss the overnights in these beautiful waters. It truly was the most relaxing vacation ever.

Zoe, Zara, Zac, Trip & Michelle

It has been a pleasure getting to know you. We can’t thank you enough for your generosity, insights, positive attitudes, and overall awesomeness. We had a wonderful week on White House / Better Days and will remember our time and the fun we had fondly. Please come visit us in San Francisco!

So grateful for your thoughtfulness, care, and willingness to embrace our family’s needs. Your efforts made for a spectacular vacation! There are so many great memories – we will share our pics from Maho to Privateer Bay and the kids were beyond thrilled to check off the tubing from their bucket list. From the many delicious meals, drinks to SCUBA, snorkel, and yoga moments. Anyhow, we do hope you will keep in touch and please visit us!

Christy, Matt, Mallory & Brynn

Thank you so much for the most memorable and relaxing vacation ever! Your smiles are contagious and your generosity and warm personalities made for such a great week! Thank you for all the awesome dives, wakeboarding, and of course delicious food and drinks.

We will never forget how you made us all so comfortable and the sweet way in which you interacted with both Mallory and Brynn. Your patience and hug hearts have certainly left an impact on our family! We are counting down the days until next spring break already in hopes that we can spend another week in paradise with both of you! Enjoy your time in the islands, continue to laugh and love – it suits you both so well!
