Chartering in the Caribbean


Operating in the Caribbean

SHANGRI LA is the perfect luxury hideaway on the water, suited for everybody who appreciates modern sophistication. The crew/owners of the original Shangri La, a Lagoon 42, were very successful in the charter business the last 4 years, so they decided to upgrade to a larger, brand new Lagoon, the 52 Flybridge. Same professional crew, same excellent service and food, same concept, but on a big new state-of-the-art yacht, available for charter starting December 2016.

Start your morning in a romantic secluded bay, dive in and snorkel the remarkable underwater world, have an exhilarating day sail, lay back and relax and enjoy your first class dinner together with a breathtaking sunset. Guests are welcome to enjoy, relax and unwind on the spacious yacht, roomy enough to find privacy on the seating area of the foredecks, the large trampolines, the wide and open flybridge, but also for bigger groups to come together for al fresco dining in the wide and shady cockpit.

Shangri La accommodates maximum 8 guests in 4 guest cabins: one deluxe cabin, with queen-size bed, big lockers, ensuite head and shower and a separate entrance from the cockpit, two spacious premium cabins with queen-size beds and ensuite bathroom, and one cabin with single sized bunk beds and ensuite bathroom. Fixed hull windows allow natural lighting in every cabin together with wide deck hatches, which also provide excellent ventilation. In addition all cabins have fans and private A/C controls. The modern and elegant salon offers wide, panoramic windows allowing natural light to flood throughout, an elegant lounge area with TV and music system as well as the well-equipped galley.

One of the most popular spots on Shangri La is the flybridge. Not only the helm station is located there but also a canvas topped lounge and sunbathing area. Here the famous Shangri La Sundowner cocktail is served. For exhilarating action besides sailing, there is a wide assortment of toys including stand up paddleboards, floats, the Shangri La Pool Bar, and snorkel and fishing gear.

Captain Bernd and Chef Daniela are eager to welcome you aboard for the vacation of a lifetime! This husband and wife team are both originally from Austria, and Daniela's cooking will definitely tempt you with some fabulous Austrian specialties. Both are highly experienced and work in the charter business for more than 14 years, no wonder that many of their guests are repeated clients that love and appreciate this professional, enthusiastic and dedicated couple. Bernd is a dedicated yacht captain and sailor since he turned 18. He sailed extensively in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, US Coast and Bahamas and optimizes your perfect vacation with lots of local knowledge. He loves to share his passion for sailing, water and nature with all guests as well as his passion of creating tasteful cocktails. Daniela, the perfect first mate and chef, loves to make her guests feel healthy and happy. Her passion and love for food and service paired with Austrian culinary training, makes her the amazing chef she is. She is energetic and enthusiastic, loves sailing, hiking, snorkeling, dancing kids and yoga. This team will turn your sailing vacation to an extraordinary unforgettable lifetime experience!

SHANGRI LA truly delivers the experience consistent with her name, a beautiful place where life approaches perfection!

May 6-13 2016 ~ Bahamas Honeymoon!

We can't thank this Crew enough! What a wonderful Honeymoon we had sailing in the Bahamas. Dani and Bernd completely took care of us. The food was delicious and the adventures, many. We loved it so much that we are doing it again in a few months on the new Shangri La! We highly recommend sailing away with these two! Lindy and Norman

April 13-20 2016 Best Cruise We Have Had

This was undoubtedly the best cruise we have had in eight years. Daniela and Bernd took care of our every need, with great food and copious refreshments and could not have been more attentive. In addition they are lovely people, fun loving and there was much fun and laughter on board Shangri La every day.

We sailed to many lovely islands with stunning beaches, many of them uninhabited so that we had the beach, island, and sea to ourselves. On one deserted island Bernd and Daniela arranged a beach barbeque using drift wood for the fire and we watched the sunset while Bernd cooked great steaks above the glowing fire embers to the sound of music provided by a large music center, brought ashore for our entertainment by our hosts. We enjoyed our food as it got dark on a beautiful warm night with nothing above us but the stars and the waxing half moon.

We took care to return the beach to its original pristine condition, before we retired on board Shangri La for a good night’s sleep at one of the many safe and tranquil anchorages that Bernd knows so well.

All in all a very pleasant and memorable holiday.


March 10 2016

Super sailing vacation with Brigitte and Rudy on board the catamaran Shangri La. Thank you, Dani and Bernd for pampering us with exceptional drinks, delicious food, the most beautiful anchoring spots and all those bays and beaches out of this world.


March 3 2016

We had a wonderful time on Shangri La and this vacation will definitely be not the last one with Bernd and Daniela. They are a perfect team and pampered us with excellent food, wonderful drinks, exciting snorkeling trips and incredible beaches. We really miss the sundowner cocktails….


Jan 28 - Feb 11 2016 Exumas

Another Day... Another Bay... Crystal Clear Water... Every Shade of Blue... 100% Visibility Under Water...

Bernd & Daniela packed Awesome Food,Fun, Sailing, Snorkeling & Adventure into every day of Our Dream Vacation.Our Ocean View Bedroom on their large Sailing Catamaran had a Private Shower& Toilette. Their Knowledge & Experience of every aspect of the Exuma Islands made us feel completely Safe & Relaxed. "Heaven On Earth". This was our friends Daniel & Moni's fourth Sailing Adventure with them. I now know why!!

 Jan 13-27 2016 Exumas

Dear Dani, Dear Bernd, thank you so much for having me as your guest on the amazing Shangri La! The trip with you was much better than I could ever imagine! It was both: on the one hand highly professional day by day and on the other hand it felt like sailing with friends! You made me feel warmly welcome - enjoying showing me your paradise.

I cannot say what was the best:

the amazing beaches and underwater world with its beautiful wildlife

the feeling of salt, wind and sun on my skin, combined to a feeling of freedom

the delicious cocktails mixed by you, Bernd

the best cuisine in the world prepared by you, Dani

the wildest beach party with BBQ and Rum

the most funniest New Year's Eve party in a wonderful lonesome bay

It was simply a trip I will never forget and where no wishes remained unfulfilled! Thank you so much for this great experience!

Sending you best wishes, Julia

November 2015 Exumas Charter

It was no coincidence that we have chosen for a cruise on the Shangri La. The presentation on the Internet as well as the opinions of former guests speak for themselves; 10 of 10 possible points, which we definitely confirm. In early November, we went for one week on board the Shangri La to explore the islands of the Exumas. Unfortunately there was not enough time to travel to all 360 islands but certainly we have seen the most beautiful places.

The welcome and the first acquaintance was already very warm and we felt comfortable from the start. The ship is spotless inside and out and leaves no wishes for comfort and sophisticated atmosphere open. The excellent food and drinks round out the well-being. Dani and Bernd are adorable, professional, and have everything under control. Pure relaxation from the first moment, and highly recommended. Rarely we were so relaxed after just one week. We would be very happy to go back on board of the Shangri La in the near future.

Greetings from Hamburg and that the Shangri La does always have enough water under the keel.

Marko and Blanka
