Lagoon 52ft - 2016

Shangri La

Yacht description

Shangri La is a fabulous Lagoon 52.  Layout is three queen cabins, each with ensuite bathrooms.  One of the cabins is larger with a desk area and larger bathroom.  There is lots of light and space below decks.

The salon is light and airy and the overall look is very contemporary. There is a flybridge and also a forward seating area, which will probably be the most popular spots on the yacht. At the rear of the yacht is a large cockpit with outdoor seating and comfy sun pads.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Shangri la – WE LOVE IT! – This is the perfect yacht for families or couples alike.  Lots of space both above and below decks.  The crew are really customer oriented and fun.  So gourmet food, great selection of water toys and pristine yacht – all the boxes are ticked!

  • Dear TC & Julia,
    Thank you for the most amazing charter! Our whole family had the best time and each one of us has our own special reasons. TC – thank you for being such a capable and smart and safe captain. Your seaworthiness combined with your ability to crack nonstop 12 year old humor made for nonstop laughs. Julia – thank you for providing the most delicious meals! The food and service was out of this world and beyond my wildest expectations. Thank you also for your wildlife knowledge. You are an amazing woman and it was a pleasure to be with you this week.

  • The Shangri La is a beautiful, pristine boat. Our time aboard was relaxing and time to spend with friends. The sunsets and rainbows were beautiful. The thinking trails on St. John Island provide nice vistas of the landscape and up close encounters of the wildlife. The snorkeling and paddle boarding in the beautiful waters is amazing! The meals prepared by chef Julia were amazing! Capt. TC and Chef Julia were very attentive during our stay on the Shangri La. Sailing is definitely the way to experience these beautiful Islands!

  • Gannon & Amanda

    Our 3 day trip on Shangri La was wonderful. We had nice weather, pretty sunsets, sea turtle sightings, fun boat rides and we even traveled with the sails up once. Julia is an amazing chef – awesome meals and desserts – certainly 5-star! TC knows the history of the islands and has a great sense of humor. They both have so much experience – this boat runs like a well oiled machine. TC and Julia wait on you hand and foot and will do anything they can to make your trip more enjoyable. Bless her heart, even made me different meat options with dinners. We had a fabulous time. I’ll highly recommend TC & Julia to our friends. Best of luck!

  • Kirkland Family

    It is truly difficult to even put into words how absolutely incredible this week has been! TC & Julia are the BEST. Y’all came up with a perfect itinerary for us novices and managed to skirt the weather and crowds perfectly so that we felt just enough away from the riff riff while join gin in a tiny bit! Let’s see… Julia’s painkillers were by far the best, but we did enjoy sampling all the ones at Soggy Dollar, Gertrude’s, One Love, Bitter End, Foxy’s and the Willy T! Our little jaunt to Bubbly Pool and the new Jost Van Dyke signage was really cute… New Year at Bitter End, followed by Cooper Island and Norman Island all bookended by Christmas Cove. Snorkeling was incredible, especially the Indians – Wow! Actually, really sailing to St. John was fabulous. Millie and I loved going over every meal including happy hours and desserts. I am sorry none of us but me could finish it all but Julia – truly, your cooking is the best I’ve ever had. All of it! The two of you spoiled us rotten, I’ve not spent a week this pampered in my whole life, and we – well I – needed it. I cannot wait to come backhand let y’all just take us to your favorite spots. Lastly, from me, this week would NOT have been as special with anyone else but the two of y’all. We love you both and know our home in Nashville is open to y’all anytime!

  • To sunsets and Painkillers… to Chicken Hasselhoff and Cocoa Lopez… to guitar solos, and Rock & Roll Saxophone! Thank you Julia & TC for the trip of a lifetime! The Shangri La and the Islands are a nice canvas, but you guys paint the masterpiece. I’m starting ’23 fat and spoiled. I’ll report back whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

  • The Boothby Family

    From the moment we stepped on the boat, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We really won the lottery with TC and Julia! All our needs and wants were well attended and it made for a very relaxing week. TC took us to all the most beautiful places around the island. Lots of gorgeous views and great snorkeling – truly incredible to see! Julia’s cooking is AH-mazing. I can hardly fit into any of the clothes I brought aboard. We never went hungry or thirsty! Thank you for a memorable week. It was everything we needed and more!

  • Danielle & Michah

    What can we say – you saved our vacation! We are so thankful for your willingness to scoop us up last minute and show us such a wonderful time – we are truly grateful to have the opportunity to sail with you and are so happy we were able to experience such a lovely time. The food was excellent, the ride comfortable and peaceful, and the experience phenomenal. It was just what we needed and we couldn’t feel more relieved, gracious, and at peace having spent the last week with you! Thank you!!

  • Ben & Alicia, Joey & Tiffany

    TC & Julia – It’s so hard to put into words how wonderful this trip was! From the food, the laughs, swimming with turtles, beautiful sunsets, shooting stars and top class hospitality… our trip would not have been what it was without the two of you!! Thank you for caring as much as you do! And next time, we’ll bring Alicia’s sippy cup. 🙂

  • The Michigan Crew: The Ross’, The Miller’s, The Irwins

    To Captain TC & Julia – Sometimes it’s not about the journey or the destination… but about the people you meet along the way. Six friends came together to escape the stress of life in a truly beautiful place; but we quickly realized that it wasn’t the beauty of the islands or the sea that made this trip so completely amazing. It was both of you!!

    TC, your concern for our group’s safety and comfort was always always your number one concern! You are an amazing captain and I think we’ll all be laughing at your “character voices” and funny jokes for years to come. You started as our captain and quickly turned into a friend. Julia, Julia, Julia… your cooking is out of this world! Absolutely everything you made us was something you’d expect at a 5-Star restaurant. Your passion and love for cooking is displayed in every meal you make.

    The offer still stands to come to Michigan. :-). Thank you for your hospitality, your friendship and for 7 days on the water that none of us will ever forget! You guys are the best!!

  • Well what a magical week we have had on board Shangri La! We have done our fair share of bareboating and cruising and truly cannot remember a better experience. We got to do all the things we love – sailing, snorkeling, fishing and even got to experience the most incredible sunrise of my life. The food was delicious, fresh, well prepared, homemade seasonings and nerves and made with love by our chef Julia. TC was the consummate host – attentive, warm focused on providing a perfect day! Most importantly we laughed and laughed and laughed. We have made new friends with Julia and TC… And will be back to try and replicate this magical week. We leave refreshed and with our souls a little lighter than when we arrived.

  • It is hard to find the right collection of words to describe our stay on Shangri La. It has truly been an unforgettable experience that will go down as the best vacation I’ve ever been on. Beautiful scenery, ample family time, peak relaxation, unbelievable food, laughs, new friends… the list goes on. TC and Julia were a pleasure to be around and by the end of the week it felt as if we were one big family. Cheers to a remarkable week and experience.

  • What. A. Week. A sizeable round of applause to our two hosts Julia and TC who created a sublime environment for our family to disconnect, and reconnect with ourselves, each other, and the beauty around us. Julia and TC your hospitality was unreal, and our trip wouldn’t have been complete without you! Here’s to the next journey together!

  • The Crew, Capt TC and Chef Julia were fabulous, very friendly and welcoming. Both of them were very knowledgeable in their areas. We had an issue with the generator and it was handled well. The crew quickly devised an alternate plan to keep us entertained during the repair. I felt the the quality of the accommodations and food were wonderful. The Shangri La is beautiful and very comfortable and Julia’s food and presentation were fabulous. Both Capt TC and Chef Julia were very professional, but also very approachable and friendly. I felt very comfortable and confident with both of them. Since I was lucky enough to be a guest on the cruise I can not comment on the value of the cost of the trip. I do feel very lucky to have been included in Cathy’s birthday celebration though 😁. I don’t think I can say enough about Chef Julia’s cuisine. It was not only delicious, but absolutely beautifully presented. She worked tirelessly and everything she did was wonderful. Coming from the snowy Midwest it would not take much of a change of climate to make me happy, but the beautiful Virgin Islands never fail to impress with it’s beauty. I think everyone was happy with the water sport options on the boat. Snorkeling was very popular. The floating pad was used and the paddle board was tried. Overall it was a great experience.

    TC and Julia really helped make the trip very enjoyable. They both worked so hard, but were so friendly and attentive to all of our desires and needs. I can’t think of one most memorable highlight. The entire trip was such a gift. TC was so entertaining and yet very in tune with his duties on the boat. He handled the day to day running of it with knowledge and handled the problems without causing any stress to us who did know know about the workings of a boat. Julia is just wonderful. She is an artist in the kitchen, but also helped with the boat without missing a beat. Both of them worked constantly to make us have a fabulous trip. They are both great assets to your company.

    One other note. We caused a delay to the start of the trip. Because of an airline delay, we missed our connection to St Thomas. This meant that we could not get there until the next day. Capt TC and Julia altered their planned schedule to allow for our delay and still entertained the group that had arrived on time. We appreciated their efforts and their ability to switch up their plans to allow for the change.

  • Sun, sea, yacht, wee..ha! This was the perfect recharge to balance 2 years of COVID restrictions. What 7 days in nature paradise can do to revive and bless the eyes with beauty. The venue was nothing shot of amazing. Julia and Capt. TC thank you for the endless delicious creative and stunning meals and drinks. Your smiles created inclusive energy and good vibes 24/7. We look forward to the repeat soon! Endless thanks!

  • We have all had a fabulous time with you both. TC you are a great captain. You make sailing look so easy and you managed the boat so well. You were also beyond entertaining. I think you have moved from second to the next captain in the islands.

    Julia you are so talented in the kitchen. Not only is your food delicious, but it is all so beautiful. You are an artist in the kitchen. We will all remember our time with you both, but wish it could have been longer. Thank you for all your efforts making it a wonderful time.

  • Julia and TC
    Beautiful, amazing, relaxing, stunning and delicious don’t seem to convey. As you have read in a few pages, this has been a perfect experience for our family! A better birthday present could not be had.

  • We can say with great certainty that this is one of the best vacations we have ever had. How nice it was to unplug and enjoy the fresh, warm air as opposed to the single digit temperature we have at home. Both TC and Julia were more them wonderful; TC with his impeccable captaining, dancing, and stories, and Julia with her amazing meals, knowledge of reef life. We truly are so grateful for the amazing company you brought us this week and the beautiful sights you’ve shared.
