Lagoon 50ft - 2020


Yacht description

Karma is an award-winning four cabin Lagoon 500 and is perfect for up to 8 people. Each cabin is a queen with ensuite bathroom and a separate shower stall. Decor is contemporary with light upholstery and lots of uncluttered space. Panoramic windows let in lots of light and allows you to view the ever changing scenery. There is an adjustable table for either dining or coffee.

On decks the cockpit is comfortable and offers a shady spot to relax. You will love the al fresco dining having certainly built up an appetite after a day on the water. There is also a spacious fly bridge and forward trampoline area so tons of deck space.

  • We have all decided this was our best family vacation ever (and we’ve taken a lot). It’s really hard to make everyone happy all at once, but Mayon and Elizabeth succeeded. They were able to plan the perfect activities and meals based on one phone call. I was afraid Fred would get stir crazy and want to leave after a few days, but he said he could have stayed for another week. It was a truly spectacular vacation.

  • Fred, Sheila, Francesca, Alex

    Our first yachting experience has been truly exceptional. Mayon and Elizabeth created the perfect family holiday for everyone. From the first moment we stepped onboard we knew we had chosen the right boat and crew. Mayon planned the perfect amount of activities for each member of our family – dive certification for the kids, numerous hikes, snorkeling, sailing sessions for Alex… the list goes on. And what can be said about the food? Elizabeth nailed it every single time. Everything she made, breakfast, lunch, diner, snacks, was devoured. She knew exactly what each person wanted – truly amazing.

    Thank you so much for a spectacular week!

  • JoAnne, Eli, Ilana, Sam and Shira

    Mayon and Elizabeth,
    Spending the last 6 days at sea with you both has been short of HEAVEN, pure paradise. You are two of the warmest, most talented, most hospitable, intuitive, and most thoughtful people we’ve ever met (and we have traveled to lots of place and met lots of people 😉 ) We can’t thank you enough for the EXCEPTIONAL food (i.e. if we could bathe in Elizabeth’s garlic aioli or make an air freshener out of her banana bread – we would!) – not to mention the thoughtfully created days, Hanukkah celebrations, scuba dives, snorkels, hikes, dinghy rides, and sails. We’re so lucky that our paths crossed, and we truly hope they cross again in the future!

    We are so grateful for all the thought you put into every detail of out experience aboard Karma, and we really feel like our vacation was “rigger” for success with you two at the helm. You both have such wonderful generous spirits, and we’re so lucky to have met you and the opportunity to sail with you. We know how much work and thought you out into what you do – and we can’t thank you enough for it. While we only spent a week with you we will miss Mayon’s craft cocktails and Elizabeth’s creative culinary masterpieces for a long time to come! We hope to stay in touch and hear about all of your existing adventures ahead. With affection and lots of gratitude.

    P.S. EXTRA special thank you from Shira for all the research Mayon did to make sure I got scuba certified on this trip!!

    I told Elizabeth it was our honeymoon and they left us a bottle of sparkling wine in our cabin which was such a lovely start to the week! They created a super chilled atmosphere on the boat that made us all feel very relaxed the whole time. Elizabeth’s cooking was amazing and it was done with such great attention to detail. We felt so well looked after throughout the whole trip. Mayon was fantastic to us too, he showed us the basics of sailing, and stopped in bays that were really beautiful and peaceful. You could tell that he was passionate about sailing and was eager to share it with other people. They both made a huge effort to make the week onboard very relaxing and fun for everyone!

  • Beth & Charlie

    Mayon and Elizabeth were both professional throughout our stay whilst also making our journey a fun experience. We had some amazing meals on the boat. Elizabeth did everything from homemade hummus to fresh meat balls with pasta. She catered for my dairy allergy with ease. There was always something for me no matter what the rest of the group were having! My personal favourites were the banana pancakes and the apple and pear strudel we had for breakfast! Mayon also made sure that we had everything we needed throughout our stay. Speaking to him about sailing and his experiences was very interesting. He also made sure we all had a chance to have a go at sailing if we wanted to. Sailing the boat was definitely a highlight of my week. Charlie and I both felt as though we could have a joke with Mayon and Elizabeth which made our stay so much more enjoyable. We feel as though we not only finished the week having seen so many new beautiful places and trying out new things but we also left having made two new wonderful friends who we hope to see again soon! So a big big thank you to them both from Charlie and I.

  • Jon

    Mayon & Elizabeth were an absolutely fantastic team. So accommodating in every way, the communication at each point and personal interactions with guests was outstanding. Their enthusiasm throughout was really admirable and overall hospitality was great – they really made the trip one to remember!

  • LP

    Mayon and Elizabeth were perfect skipper and host for our week at sea. Mayon was a professional, careful, calm, safe skipper, always putting our safety first and looking for the best sailing experience for us. He had the sails up everyday possible and was happy to explain things to us and let us have a go at the helm or with the ropes etc. Elizabeth was a marvelous host. Her breakfasts were always different and very imaginative (apple strudel) – delicious. Lunches were well designed, not too heavy, very healthy and always seconds if you wanted more. Together Mayon and Elizabeth made a brilliant team, relaxed and friendly and set exactly the right tone for a wonderful holiday.

  • PW

    Mayon and Elizabeth were amazing they really made the trip! From the very beginning they were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. They taught us some sailing on day 1 which was hard work. They were always so attentive and had everything we needed. The food prepared by Elizabeth every day was delicious! She is such a great cook! They always kept us informed with our schedule and asked for our input on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. They are a fantastic team/couple and I would highly recommend them!
