Lagoon 50 - 2022

Ether

Yacht description

Ether is a pristine Lagoon 50 catamaran. Layout is three queen cabins with ensuite bathrooms and one double cabin. The double cabin shares a bathroom with one of the queen cabins so would be perfect for three couples or families. Each cabin has individual a/c controls and good storage space.

On decks there is an upstairs flybridge with seating and sunbathing pads. Forward there is a further seating area at deck level which is the perfect spot to be when sailing. At the back there is a cockpit with an outdoor dining option.

Our personal opinion

Why book Ether – PRIZE WINNER – Ether was Winner of the Best in Show category in the 50ft and under section at the 2022 St Thomas Boat Show.  This is such a well deserved award – we have known Richard and Dominique for a number of years and they always work so hard to ensure their guests have the best time.

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Our story starts in the heart of South Africa in a small town called Potchefstroom. Marisia was studying hairdressing and Ivan just got back from working at sea on a 130ft motor yacht as Deckhand/Dive master. We quickly bonded over our love for the ocean and meeting new people. We soon decided to move down west to old Cape Town herself, where Marisia continued studying and Ivan went back to sea on an 86ft M/Y Nordhavn as First Mate/Engineer/Relief Captain in Fort Lauderdale.

  • I could fill the entire book with all the wonderful memories Richard and Dom helped us create, but that would leave no room for others to journal their good wishes…

    Thank you for feeding us some of the best food we’ve ever eaten, motoring us to every “must see” spot in the BVI and entertaining us with stories your own adventures. I feel like we came to Ether as customers, but left as friends. We truly could not have had a more enjoyable vacation.

    Thanks for the memories,
    Patrick

  • We had an amazing week long trip with Richard and Dom. This is our 3rd cat trip and Richard and Dom were just top notch! Dom, did an awesome job managing our diet restrictions with amazing and delicious meals. Everyone cleaned their plate with every meal. We will certainly boat with them again! Best Cat trip we have ever had!!

    Thank you so much for everything!

  • Ode to Ether
    Thanks and praise to Richard and Dom. With them at the helm you can’t go wrong!
    Your kindness is stellar your knowledge complete
    To keep us all happy was your amazing feat!
    What was our favorite, one might ask… Anegada, lobsters or just maybe the Baths?
    Our sail, this trip is one for the books. A tribute to friendship and 40 year old vows that we took!
    So we thank you and honor you doing so much for us, teaching Nancy to sail and carrying my phone with no fuss.
    Wishing you both fair winds and calm seas, the you are with your best friends life is a BREEZE!

    Love,
    Don and Jane
    Kevin and Nancy
