Fountaine Pajot 50ft - 2017

Lady Catron

Yacht description

Lady Catron is a Fountaine Pajot 50ft catamaran with 3 queens and 1 double cabin – the double is not suitable for two adults – only 1 adult or 2 children. 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.

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!

Our personal opinion

Why book Lady Catron – FREEDOM – A sailing vacation on Lady Catron is all about freedom. Freedom to choose what you want to do. Imagine the exhilaration of sailing to windward in 20-knot tradewinds with twin bows slicing the wavetops, or perhaps a lazy, relaxing afternoon sail across tranquil waters to a secluded cove, water skiing, fishing… the choice is yours.

Onboard experience

Crew profile
David and Emily met and married on the beautiful island of Kauai. There, they were flourishing, David working as a finish carpenter on luxury estates and Emily cooking as a private chef. Every afternoon when they would get off work and see the ti leaves swaying, they’d race down to Hanalei Bay to take their Nacra 20 out for a zip thru the water. Soon after saying, “I do”, they bought a 44’ Kelly Peterson, a classic ocean going vessel.

  • Thank you for an amazing week, for taking good care of us, and for showing us all the beauty of the British Virgin Islands. This was our first sailboat experience and has been a special week for our family. We are not boat people, and didn’t grow up boating, but after this experience, we all can understand the appeal and the allure of the open sea. Safe travels to you both, and best of luck in all your future adventures. You are both such wonderful people and we are so thankful we got to meet you.

  • David & Emily, Thank you for your hospitality, professionalism & kindness. You two run the boat flawlessly & effortlessly. Your teamwork as a couple is fun to watch. Our family had an enjoyable time decompressing, relaxing, and “chillin” on Lady Catron. The week flew by! David – your boatmanship is top-notch – you proved your merits as a sailor & captain. We felt safe and confident every nautical step of the way. Emily – your food was simply delicious. I say simple because you made it look effortless. When did you do all that?? Fresh, flavorful and thoughtfully adapted to our kids’ preferences! While our Christmas celebration was short, we were happy to share it with you two. We wish you both a journey in life with calm waters, beautiful sunsets and memories deep as the ocean. Much aloha

  • Emily’s daily cocktails put us in a trance, The espresso martinis made us pole dance. The yoga was great, we loved the Soft Norm, David’s sailing is perfection and Emily’s food is the bomb. Hanging on the boat, listening to “License to Chill,” The Cooper Island Rumfest gave us a license to chill. How did we ever live without Deb & Peter? and that amazing breakfast of bagels and lox? David’s a pro and helped us pull in the mahi fish, Then Emily cooked it up to make another fabulous dish! Lady Catron was magical, And the water so blue, Thank you for making Laura’s 40th A dream come true! XOXO

  • Nic, Alex, Kayla, Maddie & Eva

    This trip has exceeded what we could have dreamed of. We have explored, swam, played & most importantly laughed & loved every second & you are both so kind, generous and deserve the made this trip something we will all remember for the rest of our lives. David & Emily, you are both such experts at what you do, we felt so taken care of and safe. We will always cherish every sight, sound, and taste we had. We all wish you well in your future endeavors and truly hope our paths meet again.

    Much love & then thanks,

  • Dear David and Emily,
    This was high key the best vacay EVER!!! Fish glade spotted rays and a misplaced octopus – what else can we say?? Oh yeah, the food – amazing, fresh caught Spanish Mackerel ceviche? Need I say more?? Everything was top-notch – drinks and marbles were so tasty, kids loved the mint selection and adults loved the drinks selection! (Kids too) Thank you most for taking care of us – watching us while we snorkelled, salting us safely & ensuring everyone got the food/drinks they want.
    Happy and healthy 2024!!

  • David and Emily – How to begin to describe our experience. We are all first timers and it was amazing intro to a wonderful vacation. You were both excellent hosts! Thank you for being so accommodating and helpful. Chef Emily, the food was over the top great! Every bite was so delicious! The boat was great. Thank you for being such great guides at each stop. We enjoyed every minute. Thanks for the shopping tips! Oh and the cocktails were spectacular! We appreciate honest at each stop in guiding us on our hikes. So in closing, what started out as a polite introduction turned into a friendship. Until next time “Conch-a-doodle-doo!”

  • David and Emily, thank you for your hospitality. Our vacation exceeded our expectation. Every day was a new adventure. Emily… your culinary genius was amazing. Your creations were not only visually beautiful but delicious. I will always remember the ‘I spy’!! This trip is definitely a repeat!

  • This was our 1st time on a sailboat for a week… the water so clear and smooth, our last day at sea was a little wavy, but our crew did a great job. Our crew was laid back and fun. They did a wonderful job the whole week!

  • Time sure flies when you’re having fun doing all the things! You both helped create the perfect trip and overall experience we hoped to make 18 months ago when planning began. Many thanks for all the insights and personal touches that ensured a great time was had by all. We gave BVI’s all we had in us and look forward to doing it all over again… so stay tuned!

  • This was such an amazing trip! We really enjoyed every minute. All of the snorkeling was definitely a highlight. Especially seeing the shark and eagle ray. Everything was beautiful and every meal was delicious! This time to slow down and relax and enjoy being together was just what we needed. Definitely a trip we will be talking about for a long time. Thanks for a wonderful week! Cheers!

    Thank you so much for an amazing week! I loved paddle boarding and swimming. The islands were beautiful! Thanks.

  • Jason, Emily, Ari, Ava and Cara

    Thank you for an amazing week! Your mastery in the kitchen and at the helm made us feel safe and satisfied the entire time. Especially for a group of new sailors and young kids. Your patience and enthusiasm while answering a million questions about sailing, Lady Catron, and the BVI was greatly appreciated as well.

    From the Baths to Bitter End Yacht Club and Foxy’s to Willy T’s the destinations blew away our expectations. And on the naturalist side of things, from dolphins to nurse sharks and eagle rays to Tarpons the wildlife was out of this world. And on the adventuring side of things, wing foiling, SUPing, mega chillin, catching bonitos, and trying to catch tarpon, everything was just the right speed and intensity! And the food, oh the food! From omelettes to nutella banana desserts, lobster lunch, and fish tacos, everything was to die for and just the right amount and timing! And thanks again for accommodating a very particular eater.

    We cant wait to start planning our next trip back in the BVI’s and we’ll be sure to recommend you two and Lady Catron to all of our friends. Hope to stay in touch!

  • Spending a week with David & Emily was so much more than we could have expected. The islands are beautiful and need to reviewing. The real attraction was watching Captain David sail Lady Catron. From pulling out of the marina to playing Gilligans Island theme song during a little rain shower we knew we were in good hands. His expertise and care for Lady Catron were evident in everything he did. His care for us was evident as well, from keeping us up to date on our sailing plans, our island hopping and the snorkeling adventures ahead of us. He kept the toys and snorkeling gear always at the ready. Chef Emily was just as impressive in Lady Catron’s stocked kitchen. She prepared with ease and served with joy. She was great at accommodating our various food choices and preferences. We certainly felt silly with all our remarks with each bite but we couldn’t help ourselves. Each dish was unique and delicious and deserving of praise. She also knew how to keep the party going with the extensive bar and fun drinks. Together David and Emily make a great team, and of course Lady Catron. This was a special trip for our family, one that will be one of our best! I loved that we were all together and all our decisions were made for us and our cares met. Forever grateful for this week.

  • I have tried writing this email so many times but still can’t seem to find the words to express HOW INCREDIBLE our trip was! I could not have even imagined that the trip could have gone as amazing as it did. The sights were amazing, the boat was perfection, our experiences made lifelong memories, but really it was Emily and David that made this trip for us. The hospitality was second to none and our time with them on Lady Catron will go down as officially the best trip we have ever had – at least until we come back and do it all over again 🙂

    Based on the responses from the friends with us and the friends that just saw our pictures, it sounds like we are bound to plan more trips in the future! I can’t thank David and Emily enough for this perfect trip.

  • We have fully enjoyed our adventures with Captain David and Captain/Chef Emily; an exceptional blend of sailing competence, conscientious caretakers, and fabulous hosts. Recently they took a small group of us out on the Serendipity (Peterson 44’) in the Bahia de Banderas off the coast of Puerto Vallarta for a mix of whale watching, camaraderie, and sun. The guest list included everything from a Nantucket “wharf rat” to a nervous novice and our hosts made us all feel equally comfortable. The food was excellent and the stories of both local and inter-Pacific adventures were the perfect complements to the sunset and humpback whale and porpoise picture moments.
    We, personally, fully appreciated the pristine condition of wood and rigging of the Serendipity. She is beautiful, and well maintained at the highest level. We know that doesn’t come easy on the ocean. It was obvious David and Emily take a lot of pride in what they do and they expertly juggle the many daily and long term projects that come with boat life.
    Without reserve I would highly recommend Captain’s David and Emily WRT, for both, local charters and/or the responsibility of my boat.

  • My friends and I had the opportunity to sail with Emily and David off of the coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Specifically, we sailed around Islas Las Marietas. These small islands are one of the few places outside of the Galapagos where you can see Blue-Footed Boobies and are a true treasure of the Bay of Banderas. We had a truly pleasurable trip at the capable hands of Emily and David – I remember gliding on the water and seeing how effortless they made it seem. If you get the opportunity to go sailing with this dynamic duo I highly recommend you to do so.

  • Sarah T

    Five stars! Chef Emily helped me and my family (husband and two sons, ages 6 and 2.5) celebrate my 40th. She designed and cooked a customized menu, truly from farm to table, that satisfied the dietary needs of my older son (gluten free, egg free, and dairy free) without sacrificing taste or elegance. All four of us loved ALL of it. My older kiddo asked to have Emily come back every night (spoiler alert: she didn’t. But we could have asked her!). Thank you Emily, for helping to make my birthday special, memorable, and delicious.

  • Colloton R

    Emily was 100% awesome!!!!!  She was personable, fun and attentive to our culinary needs.  Picked awesome wines.  And she has HUGE pride in what she does – quality was everything to her.  Homemade rosemary bread, customer Cocktails, outstanding appetizers and main meal – begging her to come back for another dinner before we leave Kauai. Gotta use her.  She’s the best.

    8-person family visiting Kauai, we really wanted to do something different for my birthday dinner, featuring fresh, local ingredients. Chef Emily created a fabulous menu for us with refreshing mocktails (we don’t drink) and appetizers  (ahi or eggplant handmade tostadas), delicious salad of local greens with a tarragon dressing that was amazing, rosemary /garlic foccacia bread, fresh swordfish (which is generally not our fav, but was absolutely delicious, who knew!) and charred baby bok-choy. Dessert was handmade ice creams with a peanut butter/caramelized banana topping that drew raves from the entire table, including the 2yo who only likes dry cereal. Not only was the food fantastic, but Emily is just the kind of person who is able to come into a new place with a bunch of strangers and immediately become a comfortable friend. Oh and she did all this BY HERSELF!! Couldn’t recommend Chef Emily more highly.
