Sailing catamaran HARMONY, a brand, new Lagoon 380, is poised to launch guests on a Caribbean adventure. The original design brief of this superb model focused on the lifestyle of owners and guests, and considered how the modern cruising catamaran is used. The successful result is a layout with open circulation, lots of daylight, excellent visibility, very good ventilation, safety of movement on deck, and a huge primary aster cabin starboard with very spacious bathroom and shower.
HARMONY is of the ´Infinity range´ which was the later model, with a slight upgrade on the specs. The yacht features a roomy, secure, enclosed cockpit area with a deep design that is good for safety. U-shape banquette seating and cockpit table fit six adults very comfortably. Dual sliding glass doors and pass-through window connect the cockpit to the galley and saloon. The galley position makes for efficient serving indoors or out and keeps the yacht cooler.
The interior layout is simple and efficient, inviting and comfortable. A surround of large vertical windows flood the saloon and galley with daylight, provide 360-degree views, accommodate 6 foot 7 inches of headroom, and create a greater sense of space inside. Guest cabins are also spacious with 6 foot 4 inches of headroom. The primary cabin in the starboard hull is of a size normally found on a much larger build. Cabin beds are very comfortable and just slightly shorter in length than queen size. HARMONY has numerous opening hatches for excellent ventilation of the cabins and saloon.
On deck, guests move around easily and safely thanks to wide side decks and a rigid walkway between the trampolines. Transom platform access from the deck to the sea and dinghy is down safe, non-skid steps. Guests can step off Harmony right into one of her kayaks, ease into the sea for a refreshing swim, or explore on the stand-up paddle board.
HARMONY is a yacht in which guests feel safe, well equipped, and extremely comfortable. She is easy to maneuver, with a double helm seat that beckons guests to take a few sailing tips from the crew and try their hand at the wheel. Or just relax, sip a tropical drink, and watch the scenery float by.
Cruising Area of Harmony
1 Double ensuite Cabin (5.3´ x 6.6´) starboard side, 1 Double Cabin port side which shares a mid ship bathroom with Port fwd cabin (crew).
For 6 pax captain only charters the port fwd cabin is made available to guests, and the Captain sleeps in the forepeak.
Kayaks, wind surfer and SUP available if requested
Harmony Crew Profile
Captain Bruno Franceschi:
Bruno is married with four children and had a long career as as journalist in French newspapers. He recently retired as CEO of the second largest French newspaper Sud Ouest. Bruno is the author of three books, one he co-authored with famous French sailor Philippe Poupon - obviously about sailing!
After spending 30 years in the world of the Press Bruno decided to go back to his first passion of yachting and sailing. Bruno had already been introduced to sailing at the tender age of eight and by the age of 10 Bruno joined the Marine Scouts in his home town of Marseille. He enjoyed nine years in the scouts and then joined local yacht clubs and participated in many sailing regattas. He has owned seven boats prior to HARMONY.
Bruno has a Captain 200 ton license, STWC 95 French qualification. He has live and sailed throughout the Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean. He includes five years as CEO of the French newspaper, France Antilles, among his accomplishments. Bruno has sailed extensively throughout France, the Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean from Grenada to Puerto Rico. He enthusiastically shares with his guests the beauty of the different islands when on charter aboard HARMONY.
Chef/1st Mate: Didier Le Guellec:
Guests aboard Harmony are very fortunate to be treated to the cuisine prepared by a wonderfully talented French Chef, Didier Le Guellec. His skill set is quite unique. In addition to his galley skills, Didier holds the French equivalent of a Yachtmaster license.
Didier hails from Brittany. He received his culinary diploma early on and launched his career which included a tour as Chef aboard the French Navy commanding vessel, chef/proprietor of his own restaurant in France, and chef for discriminating clients aboard luxury yachts in the Caribbean and Mediterranean. He is truly a seafood specialist, having fished offshore professionally in the North Atlantic. Another interesting facet to his background, Didier was a successful business owner, having managed his own international home-moving transportation company for 10 years. He speaks English, Spanish and German in addition to his native French.
Today Didier enjoys most of all delighting guests aboard Harmony with his very tasty creations that continually produce comments such as these:
´The experience has been absolutely incredible. Thank you so much. You have both been an absolute delight and the sailing and food has gone above and beyond my expectations. I can only hope to have a similar experience again in my life.´
Part time Chef: Jessica Franceschi

Harmony Guest Reviews
July 15-22, 2017 St Vincent-St Vincent charter – Spectacular!
We are a family of 4, 2 daughters and we sailed with Bruno and Jessica (his lovely daughter) for a week.
Nothing can measure their open hearts and the homey feeling we had throughout our entire stay.
Their knowledge of Caribbean Sea is not short of spectacular, and so was our trip!
Bruno is like a dad, a friend and great captain to anyone coming aboard and your comfort will be his top priority.
Not only will I recommend Bruno and his boats, but his lovely daughter Jessica as well, whom spoiled us with delicious food every day, baked for my kids and made fresh dishes always.
Thank you for an awesome trip in Paradise Islands.

22-28 June, 2016 ~ Excellent!
We had a very nice week sailing with you two. Many thanks for everything, you were very kind and helpful in all the things we asked you for. You help us break ´malédiction to Antigua´. The food was excellent and I personally love to eat our catch of the day. The Point O2 is very nice and comfortable boat. We hope you two have a nice time in your next schedule.

Unforgettable week aboard the Point O2. Master yachtsman and excellent host Bruno attended to all our needs. The Point O2 is absolutely beautiful and impeccably maintained. Bruno was able to customize the itinerary and activities based on our interests with great suggestions. Our experience aboard the Point O2 and with captain Bruno exceed our expectations. We would highly recommend this charter and look forward to exploring other island with Bruno and the Point O2 in the near future

It truly was a magical trip for all us and we couldn´t have asked for a better duo to guide us. Bruno and Didier were a pleasure to be with.
Ditto Rich´s comments. A truly wonderful experience. Thank you for all your hard work to make it come together and for pairing us with the Point O2! Until next time, all the best, Clarissa
December 30, 2014 - January 6, 2015 ~ Wonderful Journey!
Large waves, late nights, incredible food and stimulating conversations were only a small part of what made our journey wonderful. Everyday was complete, filled with adventure, relaxation and something unexpected. I think everyone in our party will say this has been one of our best vacations ever. What a way to start 2015 ! (...) One of my favorite components of the trip was the constant banter and sarcastic humor. (...) I hope all your future guests are positive and appreciate the opportunity they have to spent time with you and learn from your experiences.

We had a very nice week sailing with you two. Many thanks for everything. You were very kind and helpful in all the things we asked you for. You help us break the ´Antigua maldiction´. The food was excellent and we love eat our ´catch of the day´. The yacht is a very nice and comfortable boat for fighting against all the weather conditions. Muchas gracias.

7-14 June, 2014 ~ Antigua to SXM ~ Unforgettable!
Unforgettable week! Master yachtsman and excellent host Bruno attended to all our needs. The yacht is absolutely beautiful and impeccably maintained. Bruno was able to customize the itinerary and activities based on our interests with great suggestions.
Our experience aboard with Captain Bruno exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend this charter, and look forward to exploring other islands with Bruno in the near future.
We spent an amazing week in the Leeward Island topped off with OUTSTANDING cuisine. JoJo exceeded our expectations with her innovative menu. She faced special challenges with Brad´s gluten-free diet yet every meal & snack & dessert was FAB! JoJo also provided great island recommendations, special translation for telling us about Gov. Beach in St. Barth´s. We will always remember this trip with one of the highlights being JoJo & her cooking.
