Lagoon 45ft - 2019

Floatation Therapy

Yacht description

Floatation Therapy is a 3-cabin Lagoon 450, a really popular design for chartering as it has plenty of space for up to three couples but is small enough to be affordable. The cabins are all queen size and have 6’6” headroom! Each has ensuite bathrooms with separate shower stalls.

The interior of the yacht is very modern and light. The salon flows seamlessly into the cockpit providing good space for all guests. The cockpit offers a lovely outdoor dining option with comfy seats for relaxing.

Forward is the very popular foredeck lounge area, which is the perfect place to relax in the evenings with a cocktail in your hand. There is also a flybridge which has a seating area as well as a sunbathing area forward of the steering position.

  • Thank you SO very much for a fantastic week sailing the BVI! This was a bucket list trip for my husband’s 40th birthday and we couldn’t have picked a better crew for us and our three kiddos. We hit all the spots and the snorkeling was the best – no one wanted to get out of the water – so many fish, stingrays and octopus – CRAZY! We sailed all types of waters – huge waves (the kids loved bouncing around), smooth evenings, wind and some rain ( Soggy Dollar – everyone enjoyed swimming with rain drops in the sea!) – we encountered it all – it was a blast!

    Bill thanks for navigating the seas, letting the kids drive the boat and anchoring at all the best spots! The kids loved to ask you one million questions – thanks for answering all of them!

    Chef Ash – you are incredible! I don’t even know what to say to capture your attention to every meal, snack and drink – it is high end, filled with flavor and ambiance – EVERY SINGLE meal! You went above and beyond making breakfast with the kids, letting them help with dessert and even gave us a “date night” . How special it was to have you on our first charter! You set the bar incredibly high!

    Thank you for all the memories, chats and caring for us all week! Excited to see where you all sail next and hope to catch you on the next trip!

  • We’ve enjoyed this trip so much! It has been a dream of ours to share the BVI sailing experience with our kids and the week has been filled with so many core memories. Ashley, you’re cooking is a dream! Every meal was perfectly planned and we appreciate your special meals for our little Andie girl so much. The kids will never forget your cheesecake, and diving down to find them sea creatures. Mr. Bill, thank you for being so patient and sharing your knowledge of these waters and sailing. We feel like we hit the jackpot for our boat crew. I hope we’ll get to do another journey someday and wish you the best of life over these next few years as your journey continues!

  • We could not be more pleased with this while vacation experience. The boat and the USVI were beautiful, but Mike and Sara made this trip (and my 40th birthday) incredibly special. They were so kind and patient with our boys, keeping them busy, engaged and safe. The food was thoughtfully curated and super yummy! Read even has a new favorite – Salmon- despite his initial (vocal) complaints haha. We are already planning our next charter and truly hope we cross paths with Mike and Sara again.

    We want to thank you for such a wonderful week! We all enjoyed it SO much. We love your patient low key style, it puts everyone at ease. Great anchorages, good snorkeling, excellent dives. Capped off with David finding two octopus!

    Sara, you are the best of the great chefs we’ve met in the VI. So creative and such fine meals. Then chicken and fish tacos, the beef tenderloin, YUM!!

  • You will definitely see us all again! In all honesty, this has been the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation I have been on. After a week with you 2, I feel like I have known you forever! Thanks for making this such a special trip!

    Hope to see you guys in the BVI’s. This has been a fantastic trip. Sara is a fantastic chef! Mike and Sara are fantastic!

    We recently chartered Floatation Therapy for six nights in the US Virgin Islands and we could not have been happier on our charter. Captain Mike and Chef Sara were absolutely exceptional and we loved our time with them. From the very beginning, it was clear that they wanted to make sure that our trip met the desires of the whole group. On our pre-call, they asked great questions, were professional and had great communication and were incredibly responsive. Throughout the entire experience, they both were friendly, professional, kind, calm and just really, really good people. They listened to us and created an itinerary that was exactly what we were looking for and made sure that every experience was a positive one – from reserving moorings, reservations, finding great snorkel and dive spots, recommending great restaurants, connecting us with taxi drivers, etc. They absolutely went above and beyond in every situation.

    Chef Sara’s food is incredible and she made some of the best food we’ve eaten. She baked bread (sandwich bread AND the most amazing banana bread we’ve ever tasted), made homemade pizza crust, created a wonderful blueberry compote from scratch, pickled her own jalapenos and just made everything wonderful without cutting any corners. Her salmon dish and curry pork dish were two of our favorites and we seriously commented after every meal how delicious the food tasted. I also commented that the meal table always got very quiet once the food was served because we were all loving it so much.

    Most importantly, Mike and Sara are just good people. We loved being around them and enjoyed having them a part of our vacation. We will absolutely be rebooking with the two of them in the future!

  • The Griffiths

    Mike and Sara were stellar. They anticipated our every need, and responded to every request… immediately. Mike was an amazing bartender and skilled sailor and diver and Sara a very accomplished chef and all around fun interesting travel mate. They were relaxed and welcoming and made us instantly comfortable on board. They went above and beyond to make this adventure everything we had hoped.

    I’d have to say it was a 10 (out of 5 stars) for us all. I wouldn’t change one aspect of our time on board!

    We hope to book with Mike and Sara next February but have to get the rest of our party on board first. I will be reaching out for sure. Cannot wait!

  • Tricia

    For Mike and Sara – our amazing crew who saw to our every need, from drinks to food!! Sara’s gourmet cuisine (5 star chef) to Mike’s maritime experience with navigation anchorages and life on board in general. Mike and Sara’s incredible knowledge of sea life and boating from years of experience is difficult to match. We could not have asked for a better crew on such a well appointed and awesome boat! It was a perfect vacation. Hope to see you again for a repeat experience!

  • Heather and Phil

    We know it would be a fabulous trip, but the experience surpassed our already high expectations! Sara and Mike – you are an incredible team that created and environment so calm, so perfect, so peaceful, and so satisfying! The food was divine! Snorkeling was spectacular… and the sailing was ideal… full of big winds blowing just the right way! We appreciate how you anticipated every need and offered lots of options to ensure each of us had a spectacular vacation! Thank you so much Cynthia for sharing your beautiful boat and crew! Looking forward to our next adventure together!!

  • Veronica
    Thank you for an awesome week aboard Floatation Therapy. We had a wonderful time and you were an intricate part of this week being so special. Thank you very much, see you next voyage!

  • Kelly & Rob

    The week went so fast, thanks to Sara and Mike’s planning and hospitality. We felt very safe in Captain Mike’s sailing hands and very satisfied thanks to Sara’s amazing cooking. They knew all the best coves for sun and fun at the beach. They picked great dive spots and even found a lobster on our last day to serve up for a delicious lunch. We enjoyed Mexican Dominos and shots of fireball. It was an extraordinary adventure!

  • Clair & Mark

    What an awesome week, we had such a wonderful time on Floatation Therapy. Sara and Mike were amazing – all planning and anticipating our needs before we did. They really went beyond we couldn’t of asked for anything more. We loved the diving especially Tektite and catching a lobster on the last day. We are ready to come back next year and do it all over again!! You also made us forget about covid and all the problems of the world. Couldn’t ask for more! Sara’s meals were delicious and plated beautifully! Thanks for everything!

  • Randy & Nancy

    Mike & Sara,
    Thank you for a relaxing and adventurous vacation. The itinerary was an awesome way for us to experience the wonders of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The menu and presentation of delicious and healthy meals was unforgettable. Thank you for your sweet spirit and caring hearts. You served us well and we are forever grateful.

  • Lorraine & Alf

    This trip was something we dreamed of doing, but you exceeded our expectations. The meals and drinks were plentiful and delicious. We loved being on the water, exploring all the different islands, taking in the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of this beautiful part of the world. Thanks for creating an adventure we’ll never forget!

  • Delynn

    FLOATATIONTHERAPY The name says it all. If you are looking for a charter that creates a place of peace whether exhilarating adventures w hikes, dives/snorkeling, or serene bays and beaches basking in the sun Floatation Therapy along with its great crew is the place to be.

    They had fresh unique dishes and some fabulous favorites. Cappuccinos with breakfast, simple snacks after snorkeling, appetizing lunches, more snacks if you like, and of course, opulent dinner followed by decadent desserts. And always on hand a cocktail or two or three!

    The crew, Mike and Sarah, helped us plan and create the experience we wanted. A getaway with no shopping, no work, low carb menu, and no stress. Beginning in Caneel Bay, snorkeling at Henley Bay (awesome), Trunk Bay – beautiful beach to bask in the sun (underwater snorkel trail interesting), Cruz Bay – off to our one dine out, Leinster Bay – hike up to Annaberg Sugar Mill (light hike, history, and butterflies among the Nokia trees), another beautiful restful visit to Caneel Bay among the sea turtles, then off to Salt Pond Bay – light hike through Salt Pond (a lesson in salt and ecology in itself) to Drunk Bay (a transition from simple beauty to splendid rock/reef/fossil exploration) – with luscious mangroves, rolling green hills – a dramatic sea crashing among the rocks. On my next trip, I plan to hike Ram Heads Trail, which I hear is spectacular.

    Thank you, Mike and Sarah, for an awesome adventure and all the therapy I could ask for. You’ll see me again!!

    Thank you so much Mike and Sara! We all had such a wonderful and relaxing time. Sara – the food was amazing, we can’t stop talking about the chocolate lava cake. Everything was delicious. Mike – thank you for taking us diving, getting safely from spot to spot and getting water activities set up for us each day. This was a trip we’ll never forget. Thanks so much!”

  • Anne Marie

    Thank you Mike and Sara!! We had an amazing 10 days. Everything was wonderful – the weather, the boat, you all… Food was incredible – Thank you Sara!! This boat is fantastic – so comfortable, clean, so many great spots to sit, sun, take in the sites. This was an upgrade from previous charters and so worth it. Can’t think of a single thing I’d change. Dives and snorkels were amazing as well. We truly appreciate your attentive care of us this week!! Five star accommodations – Thank you so very much!! We hate to leave and hope to be back.

  • Mary Ann
