Lagoon 78ft - 2020

Mariah Princess III

Yacht description

Mariah Princess III is the ultimate in luxury charter yachts offering superb accommodation for 8 people, masses of water toys and top notch crew – this 2020 catamaran from Lagoon is 78ft of unabashed luxury and space. The layout is two king cabins, and two over sized queen cabins. One of the king beds can be made into two singles, so perfect if you have kids or singles in your group. The master king cabin is bigger with a larger bathroom and dressing room.

The salon has beautiful dark wood as a feature which works really well with the light sofas and contemporary feel. From the salon there is a forward and an aft cockpit with sliding doors opening onto each – seamlessly melding the indoor and outdoor spaces. On the third level is a huge fly bridge which is sure to become the most popular spot on the yacht because it has a hot tub!

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Mariah Princess II – PRIVATE DECK –  we love the retractable private deck off the main cabin. This is unique and allows you to have your own private sunning area. Second would have to be the HOT TUB which, after a day of playing with the water toys, would be the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a cocktail in your hand!

    Thanks for everything, it was unforgettable trip of a lifetime. Cheers

  • First-all killed it!! Great adventure Captain, food was over the top, just the way we like it. Zara was always ready to fill out cocktail glasses and Felix always eager to help. It was the best time a day could ever spend with his 3 daughters. Thank you for that! And to have and share this with my amazing girlfriend and two best friends, well, it just doesn’t get any better! Thanks again, and I hope for calm seas and the wind is always blowing in your direction. Roger and the Girls

    Wow, Wow, Wow, this trip was amazing. Cheers to the crew for making such great memories for us. Dianna Grace

    I can’t put unto words how amazing this trip has been and it’s all thanks to you. We couldn’t have been given a better group of people to join us on this journey. You’ll be very missed, but we certainly remember you and this trip for a lifetime. Wishing you all the very best. Chantal.

    Thank you so much for such an unforgettable experience! Our first time in the BVI will be hard to beat. Thank you for the amazing food, laughs, memories, and smiles. We wish y’all the best on the many adventures to come! Ginger

    Our family can’t thank you enough for our wonderful trip around the BVI’s. This was our first catamaran trip and you have exceeded all expectations. Kevin – you’ve made us feel safe the entire time, and you have been the perfect tour guide. Even on an abbreviated trip, I feel like you did a perfect job of directing us to the highlights. Nicole, we have you to thank for the extra 5 lbs we are going home with! Your food has been amazing – no need for finding restaurants off the boat-your cooking was far better. And Diane, I can’t say enough to thank you for all our chats! I’ve loved getting to know you. And your bartender skills are on point! You made us feel immediately at home. The MARIAH PRINCESS is lucky to have this crew. We hope to sail with you again.

    Captain Kevin, Chef Nicole and Stewardess Jennifer

    Thanks for an amazing trip to the USVI. It was fantastic in no small part due to your efforts, from great recommendations to planning the exceptional food. It was always top-notch. Best of luck with your next long sail and new team member, and wherever life takes you both.

    You are formidable hosts, and you created a fun environment well enjoyed. Thanks for all the extras, the food, and the relaxing atmosphere. Everything was top-notch! Good luck, and we hope our paths cross again. And of course, thank you for celebrating our anniversary in such an amazing way. And, of course, we didn’t mind explaining all the jokes to Kevin!

    Thank you all so much for an incredible week! We all had an amazing and relaxing time and are so grateful for your kindness and all of your help in planning this trip. The food, atmosphere, and activities were all incredible! And thank you for helping to celebrate my birthday and parents’ anniversary in such a special way. Good luck with your next trips, and hope to meet again.

    Thank you very much for taking very good care of us, it was above and beyond our expectations. We learned a lot about cocktails, the food was amazing, and the service was great. We loved the sailing part and will next forget this. Thank you!

  • Anthony and Wendy

    Captain Kevin, Nicole and Bia,
    How blessed we are to be able to experience an occurrence, an event, or a moment in time that changes our lives dramatically forever.

    This is the case with an excursion on the Mariah Princess III. And no doubt the crew gave everything they had to ensure our with them and will be the creation of memories that will be with us forever!

    We couldn’t ask for anything more…and certainly more than we expected.
    Wishing the crew Smooth Sailing

  • Wow, where to start with Mariah Princess!! We had an incredible trip. The boat itself is beautiful. The master bedroom cabin was very spacious and offered Mike and I double sinks and a walk-in closet…pretty spectacular for boat living.

    The other bedrooms were perfectly sized for our kids and nephew. We loved hanging out on the back of the boat. Aside from socializing around the great teak dining table, there were numerous cozy sofas and loungers back there to enjoy the sun. The boat had a fantastic flybridge area too which was a great spot to take in the views as we sailed. It also had an awesome hot tub! The tender was a fabulous boat too.

    But the best part about Mariah Princess was definitely the crew!!! They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was memorable. Capt Kevin made sure to communicate our plans each evening and was very approachable and informative. He was always willing to help and accommodate our desires on the trip. He even took my son out on the tender for boat driving lessons (Peyton has his boating license). His first mate, Julio, was the nicest guy! He was the first to jump up and agree to take my kid’s wakeboarding, snorkeling, or tubing. He also did a hike with Mike and me in St Thomas. Simply an awesome guy!

    Our chef, Nicole, made dish after dish of amazing food, with a smile!! We ate so much and loved it all. She was super accommodating to my daughter too, who can be really picky.

    And finally, Cat… our stew. She was sincerely the best we could have asked for! She was kind, wonderful with my kids, knowledgeable, helpful, funny, and made everything about this trip better. She, along, with Julio, taught my kids how to wakeboard. Their patience and encouragement pushed my kids to success out there. It was awesome. She also did a one-hour morning yoga session for the girls one day which was out of this world. My daughter cried as we left the boat and mainly to be leaving Cat!

  • Cheers to the Mariah Princess Team for putting together our gorgeous sailing adventure in the USVI… in less than one week! When you are ready to Sail… Go! Go! Go!… especially during this difficult time of Covid and travel restrictions. The Mariah Princess was absolutely pristine about protocol and we joyfully and safely met the superb Mariah Crew in St. Thomas. Captain Kevin Gentles and his Crew, immediately set the tone for fun with their high spirited enthusiasm, professionalism and character! Their work ethic shining brightly anticipating our every need!!!

    The boat is absolutely gorgeous… even more beautiful than the photographs. What a Lady she is. I and my friends have sailed a lot in our lifetime and the Mariah did not disappoint. Captain Kevin took us on many a great sail! He and 1st Mate Nick, found the most delightful places to swim, snorkel, kayak. Nick had us hiking, paddle boarding… always watching over us to make sure we were safe and having a great time.

    Our Marvelous Steward; CAT… was always there with a towel, a drink, and her very witty personality. We adored her! Her table settings were highly creative and elegant. She was highly professional and a joy to be around.

    Chef KATE… fed us with the most sumptuous meals. Many of us have dietary issues, which didn’t faze her one bit. We were all completely well fed and happy!! Her cheerful personality and love of cooking was gratefully appreciated.

    The only disappointment was the hot tub was not working. In all fairness, because I chartered her so quickly, there wasn’t enough time to get it fixed.

    Everything else was perfection. I look forward to chartering her again and again. Thank you Mariah Team for a terrific vacation!
