Fountaine Pajot 50ft - 2017

G2 (Glad in it Two)

Yacht description

G2 is a Fountaine Pajot 50ft catamaran with 3 queens and 1 double cabin. There is a master queen cabin which offers extra space and a desk area should you need to do some work during your trip. The remaining 2 queen cabins offer walkaround beds and lots of storage space. If there are 8 people in your group, the crew, for a fee, will move to the double cabin allowing four equal cabins.

Decor is really light and spacious with many windows throughout. The salon has a comfy L-shaped sofa perfect for lazing and watching a movie in the a/c.

There are three distinct outside areas with a relaxed seating and lounging area forward, great when underway. The cockpit is large, enough space for everyone to enjoy dining under the stars or relax with a book. Finally, the fly bridge, which will probably be the most popular spot on the yacht as it offers an amazing view and is the perfect place for watching the sun go down with a cold drink in your hand!

Penny's personal opinion

Why book G2 – THE NAME – I imagine the first question will be “How did the name come about?” Well the owner of the boat found a phrase in the Bible that he thought summed up life on board perfectly “Sing, rejoice and be Glad in it”. It basically translates to being in the moment and enjoying life – so named his first boat Gladinit, soon to be shortened to G1 and then bought another boat…

  • We had an incredible week exploring the USVI with Captain Karl and Chef Nikki! Chef Nikki prepared the most delicious meals for our family and catered to all of our specific needs. Great kids meals😊  Favorite dinner was lobster tails, mashed sweet potatoes and the kids loved the S’mores dip😊

    Captain Karl took us all around St. John and we loved hitting up all of the incredible beaches. Our favorite beach was Hawks nest. We loved swimming off the back of the boat, playing on Matteo (floating mat), paddle boarding, and just cruising. THANK you Captain Karl and Chef Nikki!!

    We enjoyed an unforgettable, extraordinary week of beauty, luxury hospitality and comfort, and decadent feasting every moment of this trip.

    We have been on the Amar and the Four Seasons in Asia and the personal, genuine professionalism and Nikki’s intuitive attention to individual needs throughout this week is incomparable. She is at all times cool, relaxed, and accommodating with a clear passion to give her guests the best experience at all times possible.

    We are a family of four with two kids, 13 and 9. We have a very diverse set of needs and wants and Captain Karl and Chief of Staff Nikki went above and beyond with passion, utmost professionalism, responsibility/safety, and knowledge at all times. You would not believe what can be done so seamlessly and gracefully by a team of two! The will, integrity they have to go above and beyond in all aspects of your experience will ensure their continued success and your desire to return again as soon as possible.

    We thank them for their tireless hard work and look forward to our next trip together!

    This was our kids first time on a charter trip. We all had a fantastic time. Nikki catered to many different and complicated needs to perfection! She’s a non-stop hard worker and every plate she made was not only amazing but carefully planned and plated. No request was a challenge or a problem for her!

    Capt. Karl made sure we had a smooth sail. The waters were sometimes rough and he always had plan A, B, and C! It’s apparent he loves to sail and he is very knowledgeable. He managed to please us with all our requests!

    Thank you for an unforgettable trip.

    This was our first overnight charter, and we could not have been more pleased with G2.
    The food was incredible! The meals Nikki created were absolutely delicious. Every dish was carefully thought out, and she even went above to make the birthday and anniversary dinner special. Nikki is incredibly talented!

    Captain Karl is a true sailor. He was very knowledgeable about the islands and key attractions. We truly appreciated his dedication, not only to his job, but to giving us the “full” experience. Our favorite spot we visited was “SHARK” island 🙂

    Thank you so much G2 (Nikki and Karl) for making our trip the best ever.

    We just took an incredible family trip to St Thomas and St John and chartered on G2. The boat accommodations were wonderful for a family of 5 (adults). Captain Karl and Nikki were such a blessing- serving us with amazing home cooked meals, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and hiking. They took us to see the beautiful yet secluded bays on the islands. They were a joy to be around for our 5 day vacation. We can’t wait to go back soon!

    From the moment Karl and Nikki welcomed us on board G2 with painkillers and a scrumptious platter of snacks and fruit we felt pampered, and we knew they were committed to us having a fabulous time with them out on the water.

    First off, a few words about the food. To say it is restaurant quality does not do Nikki’s culinary delights justice, since there are many mediocre restaurants in the world. Each of the wonderful meals we were served were truly exceptional. The stuffed mushroom appetizers, crepes with three fillings, marinated steak salad with home-made tostones, and chicken roti were all big favorites with our family. Nikki thoughtfully reached out to us before the trip and asked us for our meal preferences — and she happily accommodated the requests we made. We loved the food so much we asked Nikki if we could take photos of her recipe book before leaving.

    G2 is a great boat. With five cabins and three different gathering or lounging places (including a cool rooftop great for sunsets) it feels spacious, even with 8 or 10 people onboard. The boat sails beautifully and fast for a boat of this size. It was especially relaxing to sail downwind with just the large “gennaker” sail (kind of like a spinnaker). The boat is well equipped, with a great sound system you can connect your phone to, along with fishing rods and water toys like paddleboards and floating mats. Our boys had tremendous fun being pulled around on the paddleboards with the dinghy and surfing in the wake wave.

    Karl is a terrific and fun captain. He definitely places everyone’s safety first, but making sure everyone has fun is a close second. He clearly has a lot of sailing expertise, which we found he was happy to share with us. Karl and Nikki were both eager to share their love and knowledge of the islands with us, from pointing us at great places to snorkel to telling us the background of some of the places we saw.

    In the pandemic era we are currently in it’s worth pointing out that Karl, Nikki and the management company have gone to great lengths to keep guests healthy and safe. The boat was immaculately clean, and they keep onboard a stock of disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks (for going ashore).

    Given the events of the past few months our family definitely needed a great, relaxing vacation, and Karl and Nikki delivered in fine style. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them and G2 to anyone looking for a fantastic time on the water.
