Lagoon 52 - 2017

Stop Work Order

Yacht description

Stop Work Order is a 2017 Lagoon 52 catamaran with a beautiful, contemporary interior and tons of deck space.

Layout is flexible with 4 queen cabins or with the option of 3 queens and bunk beds if you have children or singles in your group. Each cabin has an ensuite bathroom with separate shower stall. The salon and galley are on one level and lead into the cockpit which has two separate seating areas, plus a wet bar. Upstairs is the very popular “third floor lounge” – perfect for sundowners or enjoying the fabulous views. There is a really good selection of water sports equipment plus onboard diving.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Stop Work Order – COMFORT – if you are a novice sailor, or are unsure of your sea legs, then this catamaran is for you. Cutting through the water at exciting speeds with minimum movement may cause butterflies in your tummy – but you don’t need sea sickness pills for those!

  • Thank you so, so much for an incredible week! I don’t even know where to begin with my favorite moments, but I will share a few:
    Playing left, right, center
    Dancing the Cha Cha Slide (with our unparalleled dancing skills)
    Literally every meal

    I will never forget any of these moments or any of the other amazing things we saw (especially turtles and sting rays). Your kindness, humor, and patience (looking at you Reed!) really made this week unforgettable! Thank you and hopefully we will see you next year!

    There are too many amazing experiences and memories to write them in this short time. What I can say is that there is nothing I would rather do as a Dad than spend this time with my kids and you. You made this trip a collection of life long memories. Thank you for being such gracious and enthusiastic hosts for all of us. And special thanks for all of your energy, patience, and joy with Walker and Reed. You two are the best!

    Thank you for playing Uno with me and teaching me how to scuba dive. Thank you Dani for cooking all the meals. I hope you keep playing magic,Ryan!

    Thank you for a wonderful week! The food was amazing and the sights were gorgeous. I really appreciate how kind you both were to me. As I was a nervous sailor, the fact that you took the time to explain everything that was planned and calmed my nerves made the difference between a good and an amazing week for me. Thanks for not only being a great Captain and Chef but great friends as well!

    Thank you for such an AMAZING week! We started as passengers and as the week went on, we became more like family. Your hospitality and kindness were truly appreciated. Dani – you have mad skills in the kitchen! We loved your creative and tasty dishes – and your delicious cocktails! WELL DONE! Thank you, Ryan, for your great commentary throughout the week and always leading us in our off boat excursions. We felt so safe knowing you were in charge! Please look us up if you ever want to visit Minnesota!
    Angie and Brad

    What an adventure! We can’t thank you enough for all you both did to make our trip such a memorable, fun, and fabulous week! It was an absolute pleasure getting to know the both of you. Dani, your food is delightful and it was such a treat to be catered to. I can’t wait to try some of your recipes at home! Ryan, thank you for helping to lessen my worries of saline, always having our back on shore, and for putting up with me being the last to bed every night. We couldn’t be more thankful for the countless hours you both spent making sure everything was just right. Your fun, calm, and welcoming personalities are simply the best! Thank you for making this experience one we will never forget. We hope to see you again!
    Andrea and Sean

  • I never knew that people could be so kind and welcoming but I found out that they could be ever since I met you in that port. You really felt like a part of the family ever since you gave me extra chocolate before bed and giving me the best birthday in my life. If I could say something better than thank you, I definitely would. This was definitely the most amazing trip and people I have ever met! Thank you so much! I am going to miss you forever and I hope one day I can come back. I hope you like my pictures Dani! Thank you so incredible much!
    Elsa (Age 11)

    Thank you for the wonderful food and the scuba diving, snorkeling, and dinghy launch. This was a great get away from civilization and you were so friendly. I will never forget this.
    Harry (14)

    I am sure you hear it over and over about how you make the vacation over the top and spoil everyone! It was such a special time for us and our family. There is nothing that tops being with our kids and grandkids and you helped make it very special. Larry would love being here all winter if he could. We had a fantastic time and we will always remember how you made this one of the best vacations. We hope we can come back again sometime to see everyone smile and have the time of their lives. We will always remember you!
    Peggy and Larry

    You were our Captain, our Chef, our tour guide, our cartographer, our activities coordinator, our first aid specialist, our euchre players, our videographers, our dinghy drivers, our bartenders, but most of all you were ever so amazing to our kids. Most important, you made our daughters 11th birthday the most amazing event! You also managed to entertain the family members in their 70’s, 50’s 40’s and teens to make it a vacation that no one will forget. We can’t thank you enough for that. You guys are amazing! And we can’t thank you enough for it!

    Thank you for all of your hospitality this week! You became part of our family and made us feel like we were at home. Our Elsa will never forget her 11th birthday!

    Thank you for some incredible memories! Captain Ryan – you were incredibly accommodating, allowing us to tube and dinghy drop until our hearts content! Dani – the food was better than we could have hoped for! We expect you to open a restaurant very soon!

  • The Iowa Eight

    Captain Ryan and Dani,
    As we sit here on our last morning, the skies of St. John are crying… the VI is sad to see us go!

    What we did know about this trip: the sun, the water, the sand, the beauty, the tranquility… you two delivered in spades!

    What we didn’t expect: the amazingly prepared and served food, the added comforts on every level, the ability to be so relaxed at the hands of such a competent captain, but mostly the hours of laughs with our new friends Ryan and Dani! Ya dun even nah! 🙂

    Using your gifts the way that you do, to make people’s wildest dreams come true?!?! That is something immeasurable and can’t be explained unless you experience it! We so loved including you in our fun and jokes. You will truly be in the hearts of the Iowa Eight forever. You have not seen the last of us!!!!

  • YS

    When we came on this trip we were hopeful to have a crew that would not only provide a great experience but also join in the fun! Fortunately for us, we were here on your birthday week and your participation made our week even that much better! The food, tours, and drinks were spectacular. More than that, we enjoyed “winning our age group” with help from you! You are welcome in our homes any time you are in N.C. and I hope our paths cross again. You have a special spirit about you that makes you naturals at your jobs in the best living room in the world! Thank you so much from all of us!

  • PR

    What an unbelievable trip for us and our friends. From looking for “flip flops”, boutiqing, snorkeling, and simply hanging out with a fabulous crew, thank you! The food and cocktails were out of this world. I will say, the organization and preparation you bring made our trip special, especially the pirate costumes! AAAaaaarrrgggghhhhh!

    What an incredible experience! You guys are the consummate hosts! We have never been so spoiled and pampered. Thank you for all you did to make the trip memorable for us – and for helping us win our “age bracket”! We will be back for more banana drinks soon (I’ve got Fred on camera saying that!). Thanks for putting up with all of us and joining in the fun! We love you guys!!!

    P.S. Dani, the food was DELISH
    P.S.S. Going home to dry our livers out…

  • SP

    You guys rock! Such a fun week, great food, and great company. You guys are such a great couple… I absolutely hate goodbyes… and hope you post something every once in a while so we can keep up with you. The adventurous life that you two have created for yourselves on this boat is so amazing. You both have the gifts of making someone feel so comfortable and lord knows you had some challenges with all of our different personalities! If you are ever in N.C., FIND US!!!!

  • Scot & Mary

    We are home and back in the groove, doesn’t take long for that to happen. We find ourselves drifting back to our days on “Stop Work Order”!!!

    Our experience for 6 days is one that is somewhat hard to put into words because it was everything and so much more than what we dreamed it would be. We arrived at Red Hook and were greeted by smiles that made us feel like close friends meeting. Boarding Stop Work Order pretty much took our breath away as it sat sparkling in the water and waiting for us was a bottle of “bubbly” chilled and ready to sip as we departed port. The yacht was immaculate and we were shown to our staterooms which we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of room each stateroom had. Ryan and Dani had everything ready for the “kings and queens”!! I say that as that is how we were treated by them. Every detail was in place and for the next six days Dani and Ryan would take us to destinations that we will remember for a lifetime.

    The food was 10 star quality prepared fresh each day. What Dani puts out of that galley is simply amazing along with the perfect presentation. The four of us were celebrating our wedding anniversaries, so she apparently caught wind of that and made a very special steak dinner with the most delicious chocolate cake including candles, it brought us to tears.

    They are definitely a team who work well together and care about their guests on board. We came home with two new friends as that is how we all felt while sailing the BVI with Dani and Ryan. They were informative, fun, loving, and showed a passion for their work. It did not go unnoticed by any one of us. We thank you so very much for everything. It will be in our memory forever and we feel blessed to have had this wonderful opportunity with you and your staff. We love Dani and Ryan and hope to see them again. Thanks for the Memories.
