Chartering in the Caribbean


Operating in the Caribbean

AMAZING BLUES perfectly describes this gorgeous new 2015 Lagoon 560 S2 cruising catamaran sailing in the Caribbean blue seas. She offers the best in high tech sailing innovation plus stylish and comfortable accommodations, with four fabulous and separate social areas so there is always choice of where best to enjoy the moment.

Inside the spacious salon, find yourself surrounded by vertical windows offering 360-degree visibility and plenty of natural light. A large u-shaped lounge is the central social area and converts to an elegant space for formal indoor dining. The large galley has a convenient storage console that separates it from the salon. Open the large sliding doors and the living area flows outside to the spacious aft terrace. Here guests can relax under a large bimini that shades a table and seating for eight or more.

Up a spiral staircase from the main deck, the flybridge is a popular spot with guests. The helm is forward, surrounded by electric winches and all the necessary sail-control lines for the skipper. Aft, there are cushion-covered benches for sitting and lounging and a great sunbathing area, all separated from the sail maneuvers area. A canvas top helps protect everyone from the sun.

The immense foredeck provides wonderful spaces for sunbathing on large comfortable pads, perfect for experiencing the thrill of being under sail on this amazing sailing yacht.

Below deck, splendid staterooms which best accommodate eight guests in luxurious comfort. The aft starboard master cabin features a full walk-around bed, desk & sitting area, large ensuite bath, and access to both the aft terrace and main salon. The VIP cabin aft to port is entered through a companionway from the terrace, which provides a great deal of privacy. Two more queen cabins are forward, with a twin cabin amidship.

Crew Profile

Captain “Will” hails from the beautiful and wild African continent, born and raised in South African with its majestic mountains, savanna plains, untamed seas, and a rich cultural history. In his childhood, he was planning his next pirate attack, launching a home made raft, snorkeling for hidden treasures, catching crabs off a jetty and starring into the “amazing blues” of the ever changing ocean.

While he was building a corporate career, his hobbies expanded; as a certified PADI Dive Master, Delivery Captain, sports fisherman, water sports fanatic and his ever growing search for the ultimate BBQ recipes, he was caught in the socio economic race of life… Ultimately he juggled his life, being a Director in the Information Technology Industry, with his passion for sailing the oceans and exploring the wonders of far away islands. 

Not often do you meet a private chef who can also speak fluently on the subject of molecular biology, but Amanda Borgerhoff is not your typical chef. She was educated at Imperial College in London where she did indeed study molecular biology; her thesis was a DNA analysis into genomic clone. Other interests in her youth included studies at the London Academy of Speech and Drama, and she holds a British Horse Society Riding Instructor Certificate. 

Soon after completing her studies, Amanda found her true calling in the hospitality business. She was both Chef and Manager during her years at a privately-owned enclave of exclusive villas situated on the island of Carriacou in the Grenadines. Her experience there allowed her to create a wide range of international menus with gourmet style, formal or family style.

Her marine experience includes work for the Moorings on luxury crewed sailing yachts as chef/mate on 48’ to 76’ cats with up to 12 guests. Her menus are creatively designed using the finest organic and seasonal produce. Her skilfully prepared dishes are made with Caribbean influence fused with European flair and flavour. Guests can expect a varied and delicious healthy menu, always aligned to their own preferences. Amanda says her menus are always fully customised to match personal tastes and the occasion. As well there is always consideration for special diets/preferences to ensure dining experiences are perfectly suited to any time of the day for guests. 

Amanda has also held senior positions in the music and entertainment, life science and tech space and uses her experience, knowledge and people skills as a complement to her entertaining talents. She is comfortable working with leaders from a wide range of industries, and her calm nature and ability to lead and support others makes her an excellent crew member. 

“Amazing Blues is a fully packed 2015 Luxury sailing catamaran offering you everything from sun soaked days, luxurious accommodations to exhilarating water sports. You decide the pace and activities of your holiday and we’ll be there to make your dreams a reality, we look forward to meeting you soon!"
Will & Amanda

August 6-13, 2016 – Amazing BVI!

Amazing week with an amazing captain!  Will was awesome and attended to our every need.  The water sports, visits to the islands, food and boat were wonderful!  Rene worked to accommodate us with all meals - Delicious!! We will be back!

"Here's to tall ships.  Here's to small ships.  Here's to all the ships on the sea.  But the BEST ships are friendships!"

Thanks Will & Rene for a GREAT week!

Dana, Hope, Scott, Kim, Gene & Deana

July 15 - 22, 2016 - Amazing!

It was very interesting all the places that Will took us and it was very nice.  The food was excellent, very colorful and it was so very tasty.  We got to celebrate Will’s birthday with a cake that was delicious!

The crew was the BEST, and this ship is amazing because of Will & Billy!  We shared many fun days and saw many gorgeous places.

Thank you all very much for the excellent adventure.  You made it wonderful, as was the food and the memories.  We will be back next year!!

June 5 - 11, 2016 - Complete Satisfaction!
I just wanted to send a short note relaying our satisfaction with the catamaran charter we undertook last week. Satisfaction is an understatement, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The boat was fantastic, we appreciated the fine furnishing, spacious ( for a boat) rooms, ample seating area and comforts on board. Will, the captain was really great for our group. He interacted fantastically with our varied group (children, young adults and my husband and I), always providing great ideas be it sailing, snorkeling, water sports or island activities. His knowledge of the area was very enlightening and we thoroughly enjoyed having him as our captain. Sher was our last minute chef and worked out great also. John and I dine out considerable in fine restaurants all over the world and we were very impressed with her culinary skills, she also was extremely gracious in accommodating my unusual diet and the children's finicky diets. Again—we want to convey our appreciation for the fine work everyone did to make our family vacation so special.

20-29 May 2016 -BVI_ Had the time of our lives
Our Amazing Blues BVI Adventure was truly a “once in a lifetime” experience! The boat was perfect and offered a wide range of water sports to accommodate all eight of us and allowed us to adapt to the great diversity of our needs, as we motored and sailed through the BVI’s. With all the creature comforts and activities offered, the highlight of the trip was the gracious and professional crew! One of our trip goals was diving in the BVI’s. Will, certified dive master, crafted excellent dive plans that gave us the opportunity to fully experience the variety of underwater life all around the reefs. He was knowledgeable of reef life and was able to point out the many different highlights of the various creatures, plus the unique features of each dive site, like sunken ships, geographic anomalies, and current dive conditions. For those on the boat that were not divers, Will created opportunities to snorkel, paddle board, or use the water scooters. Another highlight of the trip was the phenomenal chef. Everyone savored the many delicious meals. The meals and snacks could not be resisted. The crew made the experience. Always focused on safety and making each experience unique and memorable. This experience can only be described as FANTASTIC!!! What a wonderful time. You two were great. Enjoyed very much. Thank you so much. Your friends, Lynda & Dave

An awesome experience. The crew could not have been more accommodating. 
Randall & Vickie

Had the time of our lives, fantastic crew. Going home with lots of memories.
