Fountaine Pajot 45ft - 2020

Hero's Journey

Yacht description

Hero’s Journey is a 2020 45ft catamaran with two queen cabins. One cabin occupies the entire port side of the yacht so has a large bathroom, seating and lots of storage space. There is also complete privacy with a sliding door. The second queen cabin is lovely also with walkaround bed and ensuite bathroom.

The salon has a large U-shaped sofa and low table so very open offering ever changing views out of the many windows.

On decks forward the seating area is the perfect spot when underway or for sun bathing. Upstairs there is a flybridge, which for a 45ft boat is very ample and comfortable – the perfect spot for sundowners. Then, at the back of boat is the cockpit which offers an outdoor dining option, plus shaded seating.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Hero’s Journey – WATER TOYS – this boat is loaded with everything you could want to play with during your charter ranging from towing tube to a brand new ZUP 2 – I had to look that up, and apparently it’s a cross between kneeboard, wakeboard and boogie board – FUN!  The crew are wonderful so you will be pampered throughout your charter with amazing food, great cocktails and really comfortable accommodation – the perfect charter!

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Mike and Julie met soon after high school and have been inseparable ever since. While raising their family, Mike & Julie took family vacations up north which always meant time on the water boating, fishing, skiing, biking and lots of great memories with the family. They also traveled to tropical destinations to escape the cold winter months.

    Mike and Julie What can I say! Amazing trip you created for us. My first sailing adventure, one I will always remember. From the meals you prepared for us and the comfortable welcoming atmosphere. The sailing and trips to shore. I can’t thank you enough for making our vacation a great one to remember. I feel like I’ve made two more friends in the world! May 2021 be a blessing to you both.

    Where do I start. I was beyond excited about this trip. Well, as I enjoy my last lunch here, I can honestly say this is at least equal to the greatest weeks of my life. Captain Mike and Chef Julie absolutely killed it. I DO NOT want to go back to real life. I might not go :). The locations were perfect, the food was excellent, and WE WILL BE DOING THIS AGAIN!

    There seriously aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful y’all have been at making this the most amazing vacation EVER! The beautiful places, awesome company and the phenomenal meals made by Julie! Everything has been the absolute best ever! Thank you so, so much for everything. We will absolutely be doing this again and wouldn’t do it with anyone but you two! Y’all are the BEST! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

    Thank you for the experience that has been genuinely UNREAL. I wish we could freeze time and stay forever in this dream of a week, just snorkeling with turtles, enjoying five-star meals and hospitality, and soaking up the sun and the great company. This place in and of itself would be pretty incredible but experiencing it with y’all really took it to the next level. The itinerary, your on-point music, the impeccable service, the myriad of adventures – we really cannot thank you enough for the hospitality and patience and friendliness. And I’m not kidding when I say y’all should have a cookbook of all of the incredible meals!

  • Thank you so much for a truly memorable vacation! We felt pampered the whole time by your attention to all the little details of the trip. We were looking for a quiet vacation visiting out of the way locations and you absolutely delivered that for us. Julie is an AMAZING chef, and we enjoyed every meal!

    We will miss the beautiful sunsets, watching the fish at night and the most gorgeous beaches we have ever seen.

    Thanks for one of the most tremendous trips we have ever taken!

  • You are in simple words, FANTASTIC!

    This trip was planned a few months ago and our expectations grew with time… Well, now that we are almost done (last night) I can easily say you have exceeded our expectations! From best food ever to safety, from great sailing places to perfect execution of itinerary. The places we visited were beautiful, a good variety of empty bays and crowded, blue water and white sandy beaches. Your service was wonderful, from coffee to dinner desserts. Julie is a 5 star chef.

    In my deepest self I truly appreciate you being as wonderful to my family as you were.

  • What an amazing trip! We have just done our very first Charter! Captain Mike and his lovely wife, Chef Julie, were fantastic! Every day brought a new adventure with destinations catered to what we wanted to see. As a family of 4, with 2 teens – getting us all to agree upon an itinerary for days on end– is a monumental challenge, but they met and exceeded our hopes! As each day passed, we actively worked with Mike and Julie to tweak this or that – to fit our mood and energy level. Each port had its own unique flavor, and we each had our personal favorite – from white sand beaches, to swirling water pools – I don’t think any of us expected the variety contained in such a small patch of the world. Mike really seemed to be able to steer us to the best locations for us, while Julie kept us eating like royalty along the way. I do not exaggerate when I say that at least 2 family members (maybe more 😊) were caught licking their desert plates. It was that good. Julie also helped us navigated some of the down times, bringing in fun activities (my kids are card sharks, who knew?) to get us to laugh and extend the fun way after sundown.

    In summary: Everyone was smiling. Everyone had fun. Everyone loved the food. Basically… the best trip ever! Goodbye Cruises, Hello Chartering!

  • We have recently returned from our awesome vacation on board with Mike and Julie. We expected it to be exceptional but were overjoyed as it was even better. Besides the gorgeous weather, warm sun and even warmer water, the first class treatment was a perfect topper.

    Captain Mike tailored the itinerary to our daily preferences including snorkeling, island excursions, virgin beach swimming and sometimes simply hanging out onboard with a cold cocktail and good music. Boat toys were great especially the floating mat which can provide hours of silly entertainment.

    And the Meals…WOW. Julie is an exceptional chef. I am a food guy and Julie did not disappoint. Breakfasts were amazing with Julie always combining fruit and fresh ingredients tailored to each guest’s portions. Lunches and dinners were spectacular with pastas, local seafood, steaks, etc. Resort style dinning on a boat. Need I say anymore.

    Their knowledge of the area was very comforting and made our trip effortless.

    I would highly recommend having a team like Mike and Julie to make a Virgin Island Catamaran tour complete and successful.

  • Thank you for a great week and for making my 40th birthday so special. We’ve always wanted to do this and for a while there we didn’t think it would happen thanks to COVID. This was our highlight of the entire year! Julie’s food is amazing. You should publish your recipes. We are definitely hooked on sailing now and hope to come back soon. The next time with our Kiddos though! Thank you again for great memories, hospitality, and one amazing vacation.

  • The scenery was breathtaking, around every corner and curve was another adventure. And while the peer fellowship was fantastic, one of the most consistently fabulous aspects about our trip was the meals. Julie did an absolutely outstanding job in meal variety and preparation. I went on this trip thinking I may actually push back and saw it as an opportunity to maybe even lose a little weight… what I found was myself looking for and wanting seconds, sometimes thirds every time we sat down at the table. Julie had pre-planned a week’s breakfasts and dinners. She prepared a variety of dishes that allowed me to try some foods I may not usually consider. She always served us timely, warm meals and adjusted easily to our slightly adventurous irregular schedule. Her selections looked fantastic, they were delicious; the aroma drew you in and she was prepared with sides and all the trimmings that enhanced the experience even more. It was such a wonderful way to begin and end our days. On a 1 to 10 scale I’d give Julie a 15+!! I highly recommend you letting her guide your culinary adventures, just sit back, relax and prepare to be delighted.
