Sail Away is a 2014 Lagoon 620 in pristine condition having just undergone additional refurbishment & upgrades. This yacht is one of the few charter catamarans that can accommodate 10 guests in 5 double cabins with Queen beds & en suite bathrooms with separate showers. She is beautifully equipped with luxurious furnishings and extensive electronics and is the ideal boat for families or groups that want a luxurious, comfortable & fast catamaran.
~With respect to water sports, her tender lift is an ideal sunbathing platform while its 17' and 90 HP tender is perfect for waterskiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding. Besides snorkeling gear, fishing rods with stands, she is also equipped with a flybridge with a cocktail table, cushions, mattresses, and a bimini. For Sail Away's scuba diving guests, rendezvous diving can easily be arranged.
~Sail Away is available for charter throughout the year. She is based in the British and US Virgin Islands from November through May and in the Grenadines (based in Grenada) June through October. Special arrangements have been made with the exquisite Scrub Island resort in the BVI to allow stress free pick up and drop off of charter guests, minutes from the Tortola airport at Beef Island, where they will be greeted and shuttled to Scrub Island by private launch and pampered as VIP guests with preferential care and exclusive discounts for any stay before and/or after charter.
~She has a wonderful crew of 3 who will exceed all your expectations including a renowned Chef who will amaze you with her culinary skills and carefully adapt the menu to any dietary restrictions.
We'd like to thank all our partners for helping to put in place as flexible conditions as possible to help and accommodate the current situation and to encourage clients to book for the future. Thanks to the cooperation of professional yacht charters like Catamaran Sail Away, we strive to offer a wide range of options and more flexible conditions. Get ready! There will be a pent-up demand for travel “unleashed in late Q2 across global economies.” Which horizon will you sail next?
As one friend said, "Travel-It’s like a friend you don’t see that much — when you finally do see her, it’s like, ‘Wow, I appreciate you so much more."
Mike and Lizzy Hill have been sailing together for nearly 10 years – in fact they met as crew racing on a yacht! Together they have sailed around Greece, through the Dalmatian islands of Croatia, along the picturesque Amalfi coastline of Italy and the timeless French Riveria within the Mediterranean, and in the Caribbean from the Virgin Islands, to the Leewards Islands including St Martin and St Barts, and onwards to the Windwards Islands including the stunning Grenadines. They have so far logged in excess of 30,000 Nm and over 100 charters. Most of this time has been enjoyed on charter yachts providing luxury vacations. Welcoming guests aboard with a friendly, warm attitude and an eye for detail they consistently provide holidays of a lifetime for their delighted visitors
Having sailed from an early age, Mike’s passion for boating in general has gained him a wealth of knowledge on sailing & motor yachts up to 80’ long. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone aboard, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. Mike has been lucky to have sailed in many areas of Europe and the Caribbean, including logging over 20,000nm in the last 4 years alone on crewed yacht charters. A great sense of humour combined with a professional approach, an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets guests to enjoy every moment aboard.

What should you expect from a luxury crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean?
It's "ALL about you, ALL the time" onboard a privately crewed charter boat! It's surprisingly affordable too! Far away from overcrowded cruise ships, all-inclusive charter yachts allow you to explore some of the Caribbean’s most exclusive areas and delight in the natural, unspoiled beauty of secluded islands, hidden coves, and secret dive sites. Sail to a nearby island every day & snorkel around your own private beaches; enjoy your favorite cocktail while watching the sunset on your own private yacht; indulge yourself with 5-star gourmet cuisine that is prepared with Caribbean flair and served in the most beautiful surroundings you could ever imagine. We love matching the right crew & yacht with you!
