Makin´ Memories Description

This 2016 Lagoon 450 offers an amazing amount of space for her size. There are four beautifully appointed queen sized staterooms with lots of light and storage space. Each of the cabins have climate control and pristine ensuite bathrooms. Throughout the yacht light wood is used and the decor is simple and contemporary.

The lounge area has comfortable seating and an indoor dining option - plus the signature Lagoon wraparound windows that offer a fantastic panoramic view. The cockpit is shaded and has two distinct seating areas with lots of space to walk around comfortably - easy access through to the back steps for swimming. The fly bridge is where the sailing action takes place, but is also the best spot for dolphin spotting or just taking in the amazing Virgin Island scenery.

Forward there are trampolines and a great seating area. This new yacht is going to be a popular lady without a doubt!

MEET THE CREW:
Captain: Keith Allen
First Mate/Chef: Ellie Archer

Keith has always had an adventurous spirit, inherited from an extremely nomadic family, mostly spread between Kenya, the U.K., U.S.A. and of course Australia, where he grew up. He has been fortunate enough to have been raised as a well travelled youth which enabled him to grow into someone who can build rapport and friendships with people from many different walks of life and cultures. A trait invaluable when considering the multicultural and close-knit conditions living and working aboard a yacht.

Keith has sailed around most of the windward isles, from St Maarten to Grenada; the Dutch Caribbean, Panama, the Andalusian coast of Spain, Portugal, Morocco and the Greek Islands in the Saronic Gulf of the Mediterranean. He has also spent time working on a superyacht that sailed up the east coast of the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Rhode Island but realized his heart and true passion was in sailing and smaller boats. Keith´s favorite part about skippering on yachts is hunting for unique bays and the little hidden gems on the islands; from the best beach bars to reef full of life that can only be reached by boat.

Ellie grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, where her love for cooking (especially that of sweet treats!) began with the afternoon ´lessons´ she´d have with her neighbor and mother. Over the years she continued that passion, preparing meals for her family and friends. As she grew older, she hosted dinner and drinks gatherings at her home, where her love for hosting and event planning really took off. Ellie has worked in the customer service industry from a young age, and loves the fast-paced and energetic nature of this profession. She has also grown up in the outdoors, having been a member of the Australian Scout Movement for over a decade, which expanded her passion for sports such as sailing, skiing and rock climbing.
Ellie is now on her second season of charter, having completed a season in the beautiful Greek Saronic Islands. She loved the warmth and unrivaled hospitality that only local island people can provide, and cannot wait to continue experiencing this in the Caribbean.

On charter, Ellie loves nothing more than to see clients genuinely enjoying themselves under her care, and understands that it´s the small details that really make a trip memorable. With her and Keith´s enthusiasm and knowledge, they know that after a week with them, guests will leave having just experienced one of the best weeks of their lives.

Makin´ Memories Guest Reviews

All Jokes Aside, Thank You for an Incredible Week

Thank you for an unbelievable trip from Cooper´s Island and Willie T´s to catching fresh lobster, we had an amazing time. We are leaving with unforgettable memories we are so lucky to have. Some of which Cole and Carter probably don´t remember :) We are lucky to have had the opportunity to go sailing with you, you crushed it all week with killer or ´delicious´ dishes as Cole would say. You accommodated our last second dietary changes because our Dad decided to have some fun with fire and we had to replace him with Kayle. The night at Willie T´s is one we will never forget, just like Cole and Carter´s dance moves. Even frat star Reed will miss you guys. All jokes aside, thank you for an incredible week and I´m sure we will be attempting to convince our Dad for a round 2 trip

You went to extra lengths to accommodate our needs!

Thank you for helping to make what was other wise a derailed vacation into one that has been filled with so many wonderful memories. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding of our circumstance and the extra lengths you went to to accommodate our needs - from all the dietary restrictions, to providing food to the hospital, special pick ups and drop offs etc. I´m sure we were not your most exciting charter (4 nights in the harbor... :) but we feel blessed to have rung in the New Year together with you. Keith - we loved our 2 day adventure and your efforts to get me to Lime Out! Ellie - no words! Your food was over the top! Thank you for keeping us nourished all week! We hope to see you again under different circumstances and truly cruise the BVI.

One of the Best Trips

My wife and I agree this was one of the best trips we´ve done and while we look forward to doing it again.

They were brilliant!

They were both brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They did everything they could do to make the trip a memorable one. Both of them were very approachable and happy in their work. They are very knowledgable with great people skills.
