With its slender hulls and sculptural curves, the Lagoon SIXTY 5 has rightly earned its place in the world of luxury sailing yachts. The secret of its beauty lies in the sensual lines. They are an alliance of both tradition and modernity that orchestrate its generous proportions.

On board the SIXTY 5, the flybridge is a key space that is accessed via wide, safe stairs. Electric sliding doors give the option of this space being fully enclosed as required. The SIXTY 5´s flybridge is a beautifully appointed deck with two helm stations. One on each side, for clean, unobstructed views. The rigid bimini is fitted with see-through glass. It allows the skipper to keep an eye on the sails when they are hoisted up. The flybridge is home to a huge, comfortable and sleek looking sofa. You will also find spacious storage lockers underneath the sofa and a reclining backrest. A large dining table and another wet bar with a plancha grill, fridge and cutlery lockers, complete the picture.

When on board the Lagoon SIXTY 5, you can look straight through fore to aft and out over your surroundings with commanding 360° views. Her elegant interior is by Nauta Design, and demonstrates the new signature “Connect” outfit from Nauta. The main saloon is comfortable and luxurious with open spaces and natural light. The same design concept has been applied to the guest cabins. They enjoy good overhead height and excellent natural light and views. The high level of finishing throughout every cabin reflects the luxury feel of the main saloon.

The bright and spacious saloon is located forward. It has a design palette that includes grey oak and beige upholstery for the sofas. A large dining table is positioned on the starboard side, with a u-shaped sofa and lounge area with a low coffee table on the port side. This first hull has a galley-down layout with four cabins. It delivers the massive main deck saloon space for guests to enjoy. From the saloon there is direct access to the foredeck terrace. This area offers features sofas, a coffee table and an optional canopy shade that can be installed on to stainless pillars. This space is also ideal for storing diving gear.

Working several years in private clubs and golf courses, Sam learned the work it took to be able to make this passion a career. Meanwhile obtaining an applied science degree in culinary arts from Forrest Park in St.Louis. From there his desire to grow in this industry led him to the ever growing city of Nashville TN.

Over the next eight years, she kicked her way as a Rockette throughout the entirety of the US, and joined music video & television productions with the likes of Pitbull and Beyoncé. After her performing career, Elizabeth transitioned to the event planning industry, where she got to show off her natural knack for organizing and creativity. With the “mainland experience” out of her system, it was time she moved to the islands. First up -Maui! Here she worked on day charter boats where she met the love of her life, Captain Mayon. For the past three years, Elizabeth has been the chef, first mate, hostess, and ringmaster of fun for all ages. She receives rave reviews for her culinary delights, cocktails of the day & entertainment tours, all while ensuring Captain Mayon has a reliable deck hand to guarantee a safe passage.

Mayon and Elizabeth fell in love on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii as two young, adventurous, ocean lovers. Lucky enough for them both, their fist encounter was as unknown roommates who happened to move in under the same roof of a mutual friend. At first sight they knew that keeping the social norm of “don´t date your roommate” was out of the question!
Their kindred spirits attracted them together from the very first night they met, where an impromptu sunset sailing trip on Mayon´s Hobie 18´ took them well into the night. After their “love at first sight”, the duo went on countless more Maui adventures before moving aboard a Cosmos 49´ catamaran in Thailand. After sailing that boat to Sri Lanka they solidified their joint dream of running their own charter boat and started their career together as captain and hostess. Mayon and Elizabeth´s togetherness is the solid core on which their charters are built, putting their guests at ease no matter the challenge. They are passionate for the trip they deliver, cultivating a feeling of adventure and well being, that is sure to last far beyond your time in their care.

February 2022 BVI Charter

I´m writing this whilst gazing at a rainbow! We hoped for a grey morning to leave… but alas!
We had an unforgettable time and it was all down to you three! You gave us SUCH an experience, but what you did for our girls was truly remarkable. I’m gonna say that my favorite moment for them was the Baths at Virgin Gorda with the pirate treasure and the folklore - but for me it was the sail to Anegada- ALL the sailing! Thank you will never quite cover it- see you at the Gorge! And thank you - Brandi

This was without doubt THE best holiday our family has ever had! The care and attention Elizabeth, Blair & Mayon gave us was incredible, they really went above and beyond to make our trip a once in a lifetime experience! We cannot wait to come back! With so much love, respect and gratitude - Catherine

Thank you for the most amazing week. I have never seen the kiddos come out of their shell like this before. They adore you all so much and you created so many memories for them! Seriously, from Elizabeth in a mermaid costume, Blair giving cooking lessons and Mayon teaching Eva her new favorite game- you guys cannot be topped! I have loved every moment from this trip and cannot wait for the next. Thank you for taking such good care of us. A hui you - Mads

Speechless… well maybe not totally because I can’t get off Aeolus without expressing to you what was one of the best weeks of my life. The boat is beautiful, the adventures are amazing but you three as a crew were the true treasure. So many times I whispered to myself “wow”. The smooth sails, beautiful coves, turtles, mermaids, food, drinks, laughs, tubing, e-foiling… even my cuts & bruises gave me smiles. You all are now family and we can’t wait to host you in the PNW. Irie, Nic

Heart filled gratitude for such an amazing trip. My soul needed. To incredible laughter, food, waves, love, rainbows and care you provided us all… Until next time… May you always find the wind in your sails & love in your heart. Xo - Kim

Over all too soon we depart with only great memories- served by the most congenial of crews, Elizabeth´s high kicks, Mayon´s instruction on the fine points of reading the sails and Sam´s amazing meals on his maiden voyage. Perfection save one point, we gained weight.
Well done Aeolus!
-Paul and Beryl

November 23rd 2021

With heartfelt gratitude we would like to sincerely thank you for the amazing week we had on the Aeolus. We feel extremely fortunate to have experienced our time in USVI/BVI on this yacht and with all of you as the incredible crew. The level of service you provided to us and your level of care and concern for our family and your attention to detail with every aspect of the trip was truly exceptional. In my business we always try to train our team members to provide this level of service to build lifetime relationships and lifetime guests – it is never easy to execute on, but you all nailed it.

The last two years have been full of challenges due to living through COVID restrictions and protocols, but this trip provided the perfect and much needed respite from these challenges. It is appropriate that tomorrow is Thanksgiving because we could not be more thankful for this trip and for the crew hosting us.

Lastly, I would like you to forward this message to the owner of the Aeolus. I would like to let him know that if this was my boat I would feel very fortunate to have this crew on board. The level of care and concern they have for their guests is the same as the level of care and concern they have for your yacht – they treat it as if it’s their own in every way. Impressive.

Thank you again for your incredible service and this amazing week in the Caribbean.

Best Regards,

Doug, Charlene, and Kalenna

June 2021 USVI Charter

´Captain Mayon, Elizabeth & Katie,

Thank you for such a magical week aboard Aeolus. From the minute we arrived (and before) we felt taken care of. Our otherwise stressful arrival was made easier by your calm and confident attitude. That transpired into the diving and the kids comfortably got certified under your guidance. We loved all of the boys and activities, from the paddle boards to (especially) the efoils. We cannot say enough about Katie’s cooking. We all anxiously awaited every meal and felt incredibly spoiled with each delicious bite. I am not sure what we will do without Elizabeth’s creative and yummy cocktails.
Most importantly you created such a warm and inviting environment that enabled us to relax and enjoy every single moment. WE will cherish our time on the boat.
Thank you again for everything,
The Kearns, Jake & Phoebe”

The trip was amazing. All the things we love about Exumas, but on a beautiful boat with an incredible crew. Elizabeth, Mayon, and Katie were really fantastic. Amazing attention to detail, great food, all the cocktails and drinks we could have wanted. They exceeded expectations. I could have used another week :) The videos and photos they took were a bonus.
