Lagoon 52ft - 2018

Island Hoppin'

Yacht description

Island Hoppin’ is a really lovely 2018 Lagoon 52 catamaran – at the 2018 crewed yacht show she won “Best in Show” – so well deserved as the yacht is pristine and the crew are wonderful. Layout is four queen cabins plus a bunk room, each with ensuite bathrooms that feature separate showers. Normally the crew will take a queen cabin, but if you prefer they will swap and use the bunk room. The lounge area includes the galley so you can sit back in the comfortable leather sofas and watch the chef prepare your mouthwatering meals.

This yacht has tons of outdoor space and lots of areas to either have privacy or accommodate a group. The upstairs “third floor” flybridge is always the most popular spot as it’s the perfect place to relax, enjoy sundowners or keep a look out for dolphins when underway. Forward there is another seating area with comfy lounging cushions. There is also a huge cockpit at the back of the boat for al fresco dining – enough room for 8 people easily.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Island Hoppin’ – UNDER WATER ADVENTURE – Captain Taylor is a dive instructor so there are three dives a week per person included in your charter fee. PLUS they have two water scooters! These are so much fun – your own underwater propulsion unit for snorkeling and diving.

    Thank you Jack and Kaycee for introducing us to the beauty and fun of the USVI. Each day brought a new adventure – snorkeling in uninhabited coves, hiking into the petroglyphs, or sailing past so much natural beauty. Jack is an expert captain who managed the boat exceptionally well. Kaycee kept us well fed with an incredible menu of gourmet foods. We felt so well taken care of. Island Hoppin’ is an incredible charter experience and we are leaving with amazing memories!

  • We cannot thank Captain Jack and Kaycee enough for making our week of sailing in the USVI the most memorable vacation of our lives! Each day was filled with a new destination and the gourmet food was unbelievably delicious! Island Hoppin’ is a beautiful boat and the hospitality that Jack and Kaycee provided went above and beyond what we ever expected. It was a dream vacation that these 4 couples had been planning for over 2 years. When we postponed a year ago because of COVID, we were so disappointed, But…. it was definitely worth the wait!!! Thanks again for everything! We have so many memories of this great week!

    Our family gifted ourselves a Virgin Islands trip for Christmas, but we also got a surprise Christmas gift; and outrageous week of memorable first time experience on Island Hoppin with Captain Jack and Chef Kaycee. The meals were gourmet quality preparations of fresh fish, prime quality meats, sauces, and accompaniments that easily equalled any fine dining restaurant. Captain Jack’s knowledge of desirable Virgin Island destinations made each day a new adventure! Best of all Jack and Kaycee’s hospitality mentally made us feel welcome and simultaneously well served. A great trip on a great boat with fantastic people!!!

    We had an amazing time! It goes without saying that the scenery was outstanding and the catamaran superb.

    Captain Jack and Kaycee were fantastic hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure every day was a great day! They were extremely flexible and gave us options each day. They both have a great sense of humor and put up with our cheesy jokes. Kaycee did a wonderful job making sure our food preferences were met and every meal was delicious. They were gracious, kind and so very accommodating. Best of all, they made us feel like family and we will forever remember our time with them. In short, we had an outstanding time on an amazing boat with fantastic people!

    My wife and I have never taken a vacation like this before. We booked this trip with our friends several years ago, and it was originally scheduled to take place in March 2020. A day before we were flying into St. Thomas, the world shut down due to COIVD and our trip was postponed. Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed.

    They say things happen for a reason. And while we didn’t know it then, this delay turned out to be a true blessing! I honestly do not believe there is a better, more perfectly matched team to “handle” our group than Captain Jack and Kaycee. And I say “handle” because we can be a handful.

    Jack and Kaycee were extremely personable and made us comfortable and relaxed from the very beginning of our journey. They both were knowledgable and professional, and it was evident from the start they wanted us to have an amazing vacation specifically tailored to our wants/desires. They had complete command of their responsibilities and ensured all safety procedures were followed – seamlessly taking great care of the catamaran and us. Their knowledge of the Virgin Islands helped us pick destinations that made our trip memorable.

    Island Hoppin’ is a wonderful catamaran. It is well maintained and the decor and amenities made it feel functional, yet homey at the same time.

    Now at the end of the trip, I truly feel as though we connected with Jack and Kaycee in a way I never would have expected. While our time here on the catamaran is done, I’m excited (and a bit jealous) for future guests who get to experience the Virgin Islands on Island Hoppin’ with Jack and Kaycee – they are in for the best trip of their lives.

    In closing, I will say this vacation completely exceeded our expectations. We are already making plans to book our next trip!
