Chartering in the Caribbean


Operating in the Caribbean

AMAZING LADY is a fabulous new Lagoon 560 S2 cruising catamaran offering the best in sailing innovation combined with luxurious accommodations inside and three separate outdoor social areas. 

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. 

Below deck, four staterooms accommodate eight guests in two queen cabins aft, one twin cabin midship, and one queen forward port. (Note: crew quarters are normally the queen forward starboard cabin. However, if guests request all queen cabins, the crew will happily switch to the twin cabin midship.)

The two aft cabins both have direct access to the aft deck as well as the salon and have walk-around beds. The forward cabins have a large window that provides great natural light. All cabins have ensuite bath, excellent storage, hanging lockers and shelves.

Crew Profile

Captain: Roland Schaeffer (49)

Captain Roland

Roland has been an avid and competitive boater since he was waist high. He began challenging the surf with the Sea Scouts and Dinghy Racing at school. He went on to earn a living in the corporate world while pursuing his true passion for yachting. He obtained the requisite RYA Yacht Master Off-shore License, bid the corporate world farewell, and launched his career as a Captain of the Sea. He has delivered yachts, including 12 trans-Atlantic crossings, and has sailed more than 100,000 nautical miles.

Roland knows exactly how to inspire guests to have the vacation of their lives aboard his charter yacht. He has been a Charter Captain since 2005, initially aboard a Privilege 48 catamaran based in Antigua and sailing throughout the Caribbean. He enjoys sharing his many passions, kite surfing, cycling, scuba diving, free diving and fishing, with eager guests. As a PADI Dive Master/Rescue Diver with 1000's of dives, he knows the best spots to experience the wonders of life beneath the sea. His forte is exploring “off the grid”, and to experience the authentic Caribbean.

First Mate and Chef: Vanessa Schaeffer (49)

Vanessa embarked on a live aboard dive vacation in the Red Sea. The experience inspired her to abandon life in the culinary industry and set her course for new horizons. She spent many years in the restaurant industry in countries around the world, from South Africa to Central America to Europe. She successfully owned a coffee shop in the heart of prestigious London-Marylebone Lanenever, but gave it up to follow her passion for life at sea.

Vanessa has always loved the art of cooking. Her Mother was her first inspiration, teaching her as a child to create dishes to please. Her family and friends were foodies. Everyone in her circle was keen on experimenting with new ideas and sharing recipes. Traveling the globe, she became adept at incorporating new ingredients and methods into her menus. Guests rave about her cooking, which is always fresh and innovative. She can also delight the palate of guests on restricted diets, such as vegan or gluten free. When not in the galley, she enjoys a range of high-energy sports, hiking, skiing, river rafting, kayaking and scuba diving, and enthusiastically shares tips and talents with her charter guests. Like Roland, Vanessa is also a qualified Dive Master taught to lead dives in a commercial environment, so charter guests have the benefit of two Dive Masters if they wish to scuba dive!

1 x master cabin with a queen size bed.

1 x VIP cabin with a queen size bed.

2 x guest cabins with a queen size bed.

1 x guest cabin with twin beds (upper and lower berths).

AMAZING LADY is fully air conditioned throughout.

Vanessa & Roland,
Thank you for a wonderful trip! You have been professional and friendly throughout the whole week – particularly with a large group of women which can be challenging. Take care, Emily

Vanessa & Roland,
Thank you for an amazing trip and for putting up with all of our shenanigans. I know we are a lot to handle and you guys were such troopers! These girls trips have become incredibly special for me …a time to laugh, to let loose, to bond, to love and be loved and you both were so wonderful at facilitating that atmosphere. Thank you from the bottom of my heart & I truly hope our paths cross again.

To Vanessa & Roland,
Thank you for such a wonderful trip. We really appreciated your tolerance for our group and I know we enjoyed having you guys around. We definitely lucked out on our captain and chef. And the food was great! Thanks again for everything and maybe we’ll have another trip soon.

Dear Vanessa & Roland,
You have anticipated every need and given us an amazing trip on the Amazing Lady. The views were beautiful and food amazing. My favorite part was the caves. Your hospitality made everything easy.

Vanessa & Roland,
Thank y’all for everything! There are no words to explain how much fun this trip was! Y’all are so sweet! Please stop in Louisiana!

April 9-16, 2016 - Everything Was Absolutely Perfect

Dear Roland & Vanessa,

This trip was the best. It was educational and fun and we got to do so many fun things like the sling shot! THANK YOU. M.

I think you guys were one amazing crew! I was so excited to do the slingshot, tubing and everything else. The stories were crazy but apparently true. Everything was the best, the food, desserts, room, and watersports and anything I missed. I will never forget the experience you guys gave us, and I definitely won’t forget you! I love you guys so much! Jax

Roland and Vanessa, Thank you so much for everything – it was an amazing trip and everything was absolutely perfect! You guys are the best, so much fun, the food, the knowledge and especially the laughs made this such a special trip. We will miss you so much! You both had such a positive impact on the kids. They will treasure this experience forever. Jenny

Dear Roland & Vanessa, What can we say? You both made this week so amazing in every way – your hospitality, the food, showing us sights we had never seen before & many, many laughs! We will treasure these memories forever and we are so grateful for the chance to meet you two. Please come visit us in Connecticut! Hope to see you again soon. Love, Malia & Dave

Roland and Vanessa, Thank you so much for making this trip so amazing and unforgettable! As our 4th time in the BVI’s, I don’t think it could have been better!! Thank you for all the hard work you did to make this more enjoyable for us! The food was amazing and I loved the water sports. We can’t say thank you enough. Both you and this trip will be missed. Taylor                             

March 26-April 2 2016 - So Special

Thank you, Roland & Vanessa for a wonderful week aboard the Amazing Lady! You made it so special. Vanessa’s food and fun and kind nature were so appreciated. We felt completely at ease in Captain Roland’s hands and truly enjoyed all the fun excursions and activities. Thank you also for being so kind and attentive to our daughter. Your humor and inclusion of her was appreciated. Love, the N. Family              

17-24 Feb 2016 - Quite Simply the Best

Steve and I had a great sailing trip on the Amazing Lady. Roland and Vanessa are quite simply "the best". They are very knowledgeable, hardworking and fun. They work extremely well together and each bring exceptional and complimentary skills to the table. It is clear that their top priority is their guests' safety and enjoyment. Their knowledge of the BVIs is vast and each were always willing to share as much information as one would want to know. Roland and Vanessa are very attentive and sensitive to the needs of their guests. They are fun to hang with but very low key and only joined in when invited. Roland and Vanessa are both extremely patient and have easy going dispositions. Roland is an exceptional sailor, teacher, diver and drink mixer. Vanessa is an exceptional chef. The food was delicious, creative, healthy and plentiful. She was always willing to share recipes and ingredients.

This was truly the trip of a lifetime for all four couples and each of us want to return to the BVIs and the Amazing Lady sometime in the future. And, we all want Roland and Vanessa to come and stay with us if they are ever in Northern California!

P.S.: The Amazing Lady is a very apt name for a boat that could not have been better designed for comfort and style. She sailed smoothly and held her own one day under very windy and rough sea conditions!

Guest comments below are from Roland and Vanessa's previous charter boat:
We knew from the start you were an exceptional couple. You graciously waited on us, encouraged us, fed us and all around cared for us in such a wonderful way. Your knowledge of the sea, history, fish, sailing and geography was amazing. It was only superseded by your sunny personalities and sense of humor. You have been a gift to us and our dear friends. We especially enjoyed the way you interacted with each other with such respect and politeness. Until we meet again!

Kathy and Art P.– Maryland, USA

These two are amazing!!!  We could not be happier!  We are already planning out next charter!  I'm serious!!!!  Exceeds all expectations!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Samantha

Vanessa and Roland were great. Roland was probably one of the best captains we have ever had. He is extremely funny and thoughtful. They took the time to get to know us and we really enjoyed their company. Greg H.

Roland and Vanessa were fabulous. We could not have asked for a more accommodating or friendlier crew! Vanessa's food was amazing and the presentation was stunning!! We had a wonderful time. Roland and Vanessa made it very special and I must say it is now a top 2 vacation. They went out of their way to make sure we had a fabulous time and catered to our every need. They were so personable and I now consider them to be our friends. We will definitely be taking this vacation again and I hope we are able to book Roland and Vanessa again.
