Sarah has a motto: ´Eating is always a pleasure´, and responds to the customers’ wishes by offering them a global cuisine (Mediterranean, Italian, Asian, Indian, Moroccan, Lebanese, Brazilian...).
She speaks English and Portuguese, and looks forward to meeting customers, and developing menus that are both healthy and tasty.

Vigilant 1 Guest Reviews
Guests´ comments from charter 29th December 2018- 5th January 2019, St Martin-St Martin
´It was a wonderful journey.
My family loves the boat and the crew was outstanding.
Hope to repeat in the future´.
Guests´ comment from charter 21th - 28th July 2018, Propriano-Porto Cervo :
´We just arrived to Miami from Paris. Our week in Córcega and Cerdeña was Amazing. Philippe, Pascal and Malika were incredible always happy and nice with us and very respectful and professionals. We enjoy our week in a beautiful boat with a super nice Crew !!
Everything was perfect and the boat was beautiful too. We enjoy every day and had an incredible week.´
Guests´ comment, charter 7th to 14th July 2018, Nice-Nice
´The boat over delivered beyond our expectations. To go from 100ft motor yacht to a 60ft catamaran worried me that there wouldn’t be enough room. In fact there was more external sunbathing space and areas to dine. It also helped that the boat was in pristine condition only being 1 year old. The main salon had ample space and the bathroom was adequate although limited hanging space - but no big deal.
The other bedrooms were a bit small and bathroom space tiny but it didn’t spoil the holiday.
We loved the crew on board and they did a superb job. The food was nice and they accommodated our needs - Pascal is a lovely man. Philippe is one of the best captains we have experienced , he would always check exactly what we wanted to do each day and agreed timings - nothing was a problem - in fact everything he did was ‘Perfect’! Malinda is a lovely girl and she kept our rooms immaculately clean. She made great cocktails and made sure we had everything we needed.
It was good to see the crew work well together - they all helped when docking into harbour, hosting us throughout the day and evenings with food and drinks - (and dancing!!). They were good fun and easy to be around and were always smiling.
I would recommend this to other charterers as an alternative especially as it’s half the price and the only part you lose is bedroom space. It’s very comfortable and very beautiful.´
Guests´comment, charter 23rd-30th June 2018, Antibes-Nice :
“All 3 crew couldn’t do enough for us. Captain Philippe was fantastic, especially with all the water sports, and the food was amazing. All three crew worked all day to ensure we had an unbelievable experience. The yacht was very clean and it was serviced all the time. Felt like a 5 star hotel. If we required air conditioning on Captain Philippe was happy to accommodate. The food was exceptional and the chef was happy to cater for our children’s basic food requirements as well. The South of France was magnificent and we especially enjoyed spending the day in the quiet coves. We couldn’t be happier with the service and experience and we are already talking about doing it again next year in a different location.”
Charter March 26 - April 2 , St Vincent - St Vincent: Guest´s comment
´Everything was perfect!! We are experienced travellers and very picky and I have absolutely no complaints.
We would definitely charter the Vigilant again, hopefully in a few years in the summer to see some of the Mediterranean.
Thanks for all your help, we loved every minute! »
Broker´s comment from charter February 17 – 20, 2018 St Martin-St Martin:
´The family had a wonderful time on board, he said everything was perfect!
Thank-you for a great charter, the crew did an excellent job.´
Broker´s comment from Antigua Yacht Charter Show 2017
Thank you so much for inviting me to join you for dinner on board VIGILANTE 1 while we were Antigua. The food you prepared was simply delicious – a really exquisite dinner with perfect balance of flavours between each of the courses. My view was obviously shared by the culinary competition judges as you waltzed away with first prize for both your cooking ability and table laying. Congratulations!
It was so nice to be able to meet you all properly and spend a bit of time chatting. The wines you chose for the meal were a perfect pairing. VIGILANT 1 looked fantastic, with so much attention to detail in both general finish and presentation. She’s certainly an excellent example of the Lagoon 63o and you are the perfect crew to complement her.

« We sailed on Vigilant I in August between Ajaccio and the island of Elba with two other couples. Our stay was very pleasant, on the one hand thanks to a magnificent and very comfortable boat, and also a very attentive and professional crew ´.
