Lagoon 50 - 2022

Wanderlust

Yacht description

Wanderlust is pristine Lagoon 50 catamaran. Layout is three queen cabins with ensuite bathrooms and one double cabin. The double cabin shares a bathroom with one of the queen cabins so would be perfect for three couples or families. Each cabin has individual a/c controls and good storage space.

On decks there is an upstairs flybridge with seating and sunbathing pads.  Forwards there is a further seating area at deck level which is the perfect spot to be when sailing. At the back there is a cockpit with an outdoor dining option.

Our personal opinion

Why book Wanderlust – THE LAYOUT – This is a great layout for families or groups of up to 8 people. More space both above and below decks than you would expect from a 50ft yacht. Great crew and good selection of water toys onboard. Winning combination!

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Hailing from Limpopo in South Africa, Francois comes from a small farming town in the Afrikaans area of the country. He grew up close to the nature and the breathtaking wildlife of the area, and has carried his love of the outdoors throughout his life. Katie’s love for yachting started in her early teens where she spent family holidays sailing the Ionian in Greece. Her sailing career began where she worked as a hostess in Lefkada, then moving across to seek new challenges in the windy Saronic Gulf and Cyclade

  • Dear Katie and Francois,
    Thank you for an incredible few days aboard Wanderlust. When we first arrived with our gaggle of excited kids who could barely contain their energy, you were both poised and patient, so thoughtful and attentive to all our needs. The kids fell in love with both of you.

    Katie your cooking was fantastic. You also have such a delightful and positive lightness of being that was a pleasure to be around. We relished every minute of our time with you. I cannot tell you how appreciative we were of the effort you made to coordinate so smoothly with Windward for our tandem. The details and special effort for the 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration were above and beyond! Thank you again!!
    -Valerie

  • Could not have even imagined how amazing this trip has been… over the top on every scale… Francois and Katie, your involvement in our time made it all the more perfect! Amazing and not able to surpassed.
    Love you both

    We had the best week with long time friends and making new friends with Katie and Francois! Your hospitality was the best ! We ate wonderful food everyday – too much! We stopped in all the fun spots – The Baths, Bitter End, Saba Rock, Cooper Island, Soggy Dollar, Foxy’s, Anegada, and many more. We have to last a lifetime.
    Thanks so much,
    We loved every minute
    xoxo

    Thank you for your gracious and fun vibe while keep us safe and so well fed while we lived on Wanderlust for the week! The rest and relaxation plus activities were balanced perfectly. So grateful to share this gorgeous corner of the world with you and good friends! Two small words don’t seem enough, but Thank You Katie and Francois!
    Love, Maria

    We had such a fantastic time in the BVI. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable on the boat and for all of the special touches you did to make everything great! The food – OMG – was phenomenal. Katie you are a wonderful cook. Francois, we loved playing games with you and the captain’s drink was a highlight of everyday. Best of luck on all your new adventures, together. We will miss you and think of you often!
    xoxo

    Katie and Francois,
    Where to begin? I’ll start with this-this was our most favorite vacation ever! We expected beautiful waters and warm sun, but we are leaving with new friendships in the two of you and so much more. Your hospitality has been incredible-always so easy going and willing to jump in and play with our 3 girls! Katie aka Julia Child, your cooking and presentation is what would be found at a 5 star restaurant. You made Easter so special for the girls-creating bunny fruit plates and an Easter cake. We will be dreaming of your meals back at home. I don’t know how you do it all every day. Francois, you are one of a kind! Teaching the kids how to tie all different knots during our long sails, always finding the perfect beaches and bays, leading us on the most fascinating dives and hearing about you firsthand experience. Thank you both for these lifelong memories that we will truly never forget. We know that living this life can be hard for the family that misses you, but know that you are touching lives like ours and creating meaningful memories for them. What a gift to share this life together-we are rooting for you two. You are one incredible pair.
  • The Wanderlust adventure will be one we’ll always remember. We enjoyed the food, snorkeling, and new friendships with Katie and Francois.
    -Cindy and MarkThis experience was amazing! Exceeded all our expectations. Wanderlust is gorgeous. Our crew was the best! I highly recommend. Our entire trip was amazing and would love to do it all over again. Blessings to all!
    -Bryan and DeannaThis was our second charter, and Wanderlust far exceeded our first adventure. The crew were hospitable, helpful, accommodating, and most importantly professional. They always had an eye on us to make sure we were having fun, but safe.
    The food was 5 star-every meal! The evening “captains” cocktails were imaginative and was a great way to start a relaxing evening after a day of snorkeling and adventure.
    The boat was immaculate and comfortable…beds were better than most hotels!
    Special thanks to Katie and Francois.

    Wow!! How to start to describe our week with you is tough… We loved every moment on board Wanderlust with the two of you. Francois and Katie you made our week together absolutely amazing. We loved the scuba diving (especially wreck of the Rhone and seeing the planes and 2 sharks), exploring new places (Anegada – the scooters and scavenger hunt were great fun!), fishing (though we never did catch the big one… next time!), the food… wow, we ate so much… it was all so delicious and beautiful!

    The Wanderlust itself is beautiful, spacious, comfortable, (esp. loved the time sailing with you two), the daily special drinks and the table set ups, and helping us do everything… it was all perfect… and all done with a smile. We can tell you love it here and that love is infectious!

    And I can’t forget – “We saw a whale!!!!” Will never forget that. Thank you for a very special week! We hope to be able to sail with you again.

    Please reach out to us if you ever come North to Virginia or our Delaware Beach – we’d love to have you! Until next time!

    Dear Capt and Kate,
    We can’t thank you enough for creating a spectacular week for all of us. You both were perfect hosts and went above and beyond. Glenn and I loved our time on the Hobe cat and I can’t thank you enough for not flipping it while I was on. The meals you created were beyond and one was better than the next.

    We loved exploring Anegada with you, so glad we were able to make it there. We are so lucky to have been your maiden voyage. You both will be very successful, and we wish you all the best in the future!

    PS I will keep working on my napkin folding. Thank you for the lessons.

    Dear Kate and Captain,
    Thank you Thank you for a fabulous voyage! Truly everything was fantastic. The food was beyond what we expected and delicious!

    The boat was kept so clean and neat. The excursions were all so well planned and enjoyable. Hard to focus on one highlight when everything was a new, fun, and yummy experience. You guys are a great team!

    Thank you for everything and smooth sailing!

    2023 arrived with a gift – Wanderlust arrived in time for our group to be their first charter!

    Captain Francois and Chef and amazing first mate Kate are experts at what they do, but besides being a wonderful crew-they made us feel cared for and shared their knowledge and love of sailing, boating, and the BVI.

    Thank you for an amazing week!
