Lagoon 51ft - 2008, Refit 2016

Gambit

Yacht description

Gambit is a 51ft Lagoon with three queen cabins and one twins. If you have all couples in your group then you can make a request for the crew to take the bunk beds, leaving four queen cabins – there is an extra charge for this. Décor is contemporary with pastel upholstery and plenty of uncluttered space. Panoramic windows let in an abundance of light and allow you to view the ever changing scenery from air conditioned comfort. There is an adjustable table for either dining or coffee.

On decks, the signature Lagoon forward seating area is the perfect dolphin lookout or stargazing with the addition of sun pads on either side. “Upstairs” is a great flybridge – perfect for evening cocktails whilst watching the sunset. Finally, the cockpit will probably be the place you’ll spend the most time, and it’s wonderful with shaded, comfortable seating and a dining area for 8 people.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Gambit – FLEXIBILITY – Four cabins are rare on a Lagoon 51 and it is really a super layout for families or couples alike. If you would like to request four queen cabins instead of 3 queens and bunks, Doug and Val will move – there is an additional charge for this.

Onboard experience

Crew profile
After many years sailing together (mostly with children aboard), and in excess of 70 completed charters, we team up on deck to offer you a fun filled sailing vacation, and when the anchor is down, a companionable, relaxed yet attentive atmosphere is created for you to escape your normal routine and create memories which will live with you forever. We would love the opportunity to extend a warm welcome to you in the BVI, offer you our hospitality aboard Gambit, and show you around some of our lovely anchorages and must see spots that we’ve come to call home.

    WOW! what an amazing vacation. We really appreciate you welcoming us into your home and taking us to the best places in the BVI. We will never forget the yellow flag of honor being the only boat in each bay and having two islands to ourselves. You are the best! – Sherri and Steve

    Thank you for a wonderful, wonderful, tremendous charter! It was a challenge to get here (1 year delayed) but well worth the wait. So fun to stay at anchorages that we have never seen before – thank you for that! We can’t wait for our next charter with you… Grenadines?? Susan & Ray

    Leaving Gambit this morning after 8 nights aboard being spoiled by the best hosts ever: Doug & Val. Took hundreds of pictures with my brother, Raymond who invited me all the way from London! ~ Joyce

    What a great adventure with you guys! Thanks so much for offering to let us crew the rest of the season so we don’t have to go back to Iowa!!! The stories of your adventures are awe-inspiring… the places you’ve been paint a vivid picture. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Sharing your love of this place, sharing your kindness and laughter and sharing these memories.

  • Jill and Bill, Frank and Meg

    Another wonderful trip, we cannot thank you enough for your kindness and hospitality. Enjoyed every second. Beautiful beaches, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets… until next time.

    The only problem on Gambit is the time passes too quickly. We loved every speedy, sun filled minute. Thank you for another week of extraordinary hospitality, laughs, puzzles, delicious food, and left, right, centre. Much love until next time.

  • Ed

    This was planned as a special family event. The crew made it an especially GREAT event ~ 60th Anniversary with all 7 family members enjoying the whole experience from 80 year old senior to 20 year old grandson. I’m sure this trip will remain in our conversations for a long time. Thanks for a great trip.

    Food fantastic, route amazing, crew… was the bonding feature!!!

  • JF

    You two are such an inspiration to me, the way you live and enjoy the beauty of nature and the world is enlightening. I love meeting people like you who have adventurous souls and genuine hearts. The last 8 days have been calming, healing and brought my connection to the ocean closer. Val, thank you for the nourishing food and treating us like family. Dougie, thanks for taking me back under the sea and being patient with me diving. I hope we meet again someday.

  • Joyce

    It was so amazing to sail with you again and though we miss Katlyn, we love Gambit now too! The food, hospitality and friendships feel like we are one big family. Thank you for putting up with us and we will see you again without kids! (PS – we left the kids in the locker with the scuba gear – train your new deck hands well!)

  • Kim

    Cruising through the BVI’s was a truly wonderful experience especially having you to take such good care of us. Your warmth and genuine interest in making sure we were never left wanting for a single thing was very much noted and appreciated!

    Val – the food! On my, you can create wonders in that kitchen! I’m still thinking of the grilled tuna! Captain ‘Ron’ – you managed to keep one step ahead of us with the beer and wine cooler – not an easy feat with us Canadians. Until we meet again…

  • GE

    What an amazing trip! You both have such a warm and welcoming way. Any nervousness about a week at sea were quickly washed away from the get go. The many adventures will stay in our hearts for years to come. All meals were delicious – even with one of the most picky children – Val made wonderful meals and snacks. You both have such patience and experience that Mike and I truly appreciate! Thanks for helping make this our best spring vacation.

    Doug is a fascinating guy and very personable. He did a great job on the dives we went on and having scuba on board was a special treat. Doug and Val both guided us on shore. Val took us to the bubbly pool which was super cool and Doug took us to the bat cave and the Baths.

    Val is a chef and was very flexible on how and when meals and snacks were served which was important to us. All the food was well prepared and presented. My favorite time of the day was cocktail hour.

    My children liked playing games on board. Uno, shut the box, Rummikub and liars dice. My wife liked not having to run everything and tidy up after the children (Thanks again to Val). We put the trip in their capable hands and they hit a home run!
