Elysian Description

The Bali 5.4 is a ´Multihull of the Year´ award-winning catamaran. The design was new to the market in 2019 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. It is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space and it succeeds in producing a scale that feels less like a boat, and more like an upscale floating condominium. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance; producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the ´Bali garage door´ that is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever-present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full-sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit and aftermarket items available on Elysian. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Elysian will accommodate 8 charter guests in 3 spacious queen cabins and 1 sprawling master cabin for those who desire more space. She is a 2020 sailing catamaran with solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made ecofriendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, 2 underwater scooters, subwing, wakeboard, 2 stand up paddle boards, 10 ft. floating dock, towable tube, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Elysian giveaways.

Orlagh O´Donoghue

Born and bred in Ireland, Orlagh has always had an unwavering passion for the outdoors, and travel. Being able to horse ride since a very young age, Orlagh was never seen without muddy boots and a horse somewhere nearby. At every opportunity Orlagh would leave Ireland to compete on her horses abroad. This lead her to see new cultures and sparked an interest to want to travel further.
Starting her first job as an air hostess for Emirates airlines in her early 20´s, she predominantly worked in premium cabins for over five years. That provided her the chance to experienced many countries and vast cultures.
After spending so much time in the air she started to miss the ocean and nature, so she took some time away from flying. After discovering her passion for sailing it was an easy decision to make the change but had to throw herself entirely into sailing and spend all of her time and energy to complete her Yachtmaster in the UK.
She ended up swapping her wings for her sails and spent a summer working for a charter company, offering sailing trips around Greece. She naturally fell in love with sailing and knew that this is what she wanted to pursue as a life and career.
Four years in, Orlagh has been working as a professional captain in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, having also completed some ocean crossings across the Atlantic and spending her last winter as a sailing instructor in the BVI.

Cassie Peppin

Originally from Florida, Cassie grew up on the water. Spending the weekends at the beach, grilling out with friends and family fostered her love for entertaining.
Growing up as the oldest of six, she is overqualified at managing multiple personalities and wrangling a group. She was the go-to girl for family birthday cakes and over the years has been more than happy to use her familv for countless hours of recipe testing.
After college, Cassie began working in DC as an events planner, and while her love for entertaining helped her excel in this position, she still yearned for something more. Deciding to take a year off to backpack through Europe, Cassie ended up on a sailboat trip with friends in Croatia and that was it. She knew she had to find a way to stay, and when the staff on board asked if she knew how to cook, she said yes - and never looked back.
During the pandemic when the tourism industry slowed, she took that as an opportunity to advance her career by taking a year off from working on boats to attend culinary school in New York. Cassie then landed a job as a line cook at a well known southeast Asian restaurant in Chinatown while attending school, learning from some of the best chefs in the industry and fine tuning her own skills on the line, she gained priceless experience during her year on land. She now brings this professional training to yachts all over the world, from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean to French Polynesia - and now to her new found home on sailing yacht Elysian.

Elysian Guest Reviews

Previous Yacht NameSynergy
Orlagh is the perfect blend of professional and fun

Orlagh is the main reason I came back for a second week. She is the perfect blend of
professional and fun. She is incredibly knowledgeable regarding sailing and has unique and personal stories about everywhere we go and everything we see. She also knows how to have fun and gives the best recommendations on day activities we should participate in because she always has the best relationships with locals, and knows what fits for her guests. I could literally write about Orlagh singing her praises forever, but you get the gist.

She was so kind and helpful

She was so kind, helpful and even cleaned up, not leaving the chef having to do everything!

Orlah was everything I was hoping for and more

Orlah was everything I was hoping for and more!! She was super informative, kept us updated with activities and places to go. She sailed the boat beautifully and always offered up good vibes.

Orlagh was absolutely amazing

Orlagh was absolutely amazing!! She kept us safe and was always on top of the upcoming event information. She even took us to an extra little coral adventure. We had a blast hanging with her at the dinners. Thank you!! Would love to do a future week with Orlagh.

Orlagh is the absolute best!

Orlagh is the absolute best!
So intelligent, sweet, and goes above and beyond.

Orlagh was an amazing skipper

Orlagh was an amazing skipper, kept the yacht running smoothly and us in sync with the squad. Could not have asked for a better person to guide us through this journey!

Our captain was tremendous

We´re having a great time. Our captain was tremendous. I wanted to mention to you that she was absolutely wonderful knowledgeable, and an excellent guide and teacher. Thank you again I just wanted to make sure that we let you know that we have the highest recommendations for our captain Orlagh!! Wonderful!!

Our was so beautiful and special

Our skipper Orlagh was the absolute best! Not only did she make us feel safe and comfortable on the boat, but she helped to plan amazing day excursions and get us the best restaurant and club reservations. She made us laugh and brought positivity to our trip that was so beautiful and special.

Orlagh was the best

Orlagh was the best, she made us feel welcome and was really friendly and professional. I couldn´t imagine a better leader for our boat.

There will be little that can top this trip

We truly enjoyed having Jacob Beman as our Captain during our charter in the BVI. Jacob was a true professional, and handled the catamaran with skill above and beyond what I have seen on other trips.

Jacob was always up early starting coffee and performing his captain duties, and he even helped our chef with some of the meals & her responsibilities.

He was well versed in first aid, as one day I had a small cut on my ankle and he cleaned and bandaged it for me. We were quite impressed during our trip because he always sailed using the sails vs. using the motor, which may have been because of the great weather we had, but regardless, we enjoyed our time on the yacht tremendously.

Alex is a ridiculously good chef, and kept us on track and informed throughout our stay, and made every person on board feel special. She is an amazing person and part of an excellent overall team.

We felt in such good hands

Jacob was happy to answer questions and teach those that wanted to learn more about sailing.

I was so impressed by his professionalism, knowledge of the islands, and basically everything about the water. Jacob was always smiling, and he knew just where to take us to snorkel and things to tell us to look out for.

He was happy to take us to the islands in the dingy, and really made our trip so special. We enjoyed having Jacob for our charter, he is quite an impressive captain.

Alex was beyond words amazing!!

Besides being a phenomenal person, she is a gourmet chef!! She took incredible care of each one of us, prepared incredible meals, and made the entire experience perfection!!

She handled our every need, want and just made every moment fabulous!

We were blown away with how fun and beautiful everything was

There aren’t enough words to say how amazing Alex was! We wouldn’t recommend a yacht trip to anyone if Alex isn’t the chef.

I couldn’t believe how delicious all of the meals were. She made sure we were ready and on time for all events. I can’t imagine this trip without her!

Jacob is professional, smart, kind, witty and I highly recommend him without hesitation.

I would not hesitate to charter with this team again, and I plan to next year!!

Trip of a Lifetime

´It´s hard to find the words to describe how our experience was with Sailing Synergy. The beauty of the islands, the love and grace with Alex and Jacob and the majesty of this incredible boat are second to none. This was a trip of a lifetime that will never be forgotten. Thank you for the memories, Synergy.´

Alex and Jacob made the trip EXCEPTIONAL

´This trip was a family vacation to celebrate Cam´s graduation. He picked it and we were so excited to experience ´salt life´ for the first time! What an unbelievable trip! We were spoiled from the moment we got onboard until the last minute. Alex´s food is 1st class on every level- presentation, variety, and most of all TASTE! we cheered everytime she announced that a meal was ready (and took pictures of everything)! Captain Jacob was the best captain in the BVI USVI and beyond! He had mad skills as a captain and led us onshore to some superb spots for viewing and drinking. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Alex and Jacob , they are true professionals. Alex and Jacob made this trip EXCEPTIONAL and we feel so lucky to be in their care for the best 8days. Reality will be tough to return to after this dreamy, scenic, gourmet and laughter filled trip.´
