JOY Yacht Charter Catamaran
Since its debut in 2016, the new Lagoon Seventy 7 catamaran has been in record-breaking demand. Built in France by CNB and designed by a super-star team of VPLP, Patrick Le Quément and Nauta Design, the Seventy 7 is the new flagship for builder Lagoon and boasts gentle and precise lines for a refined and harmonious overall look. As an unbeatable choice for a bespoke yacht charter holiday, JOY combines pedigree design with luxurious styling, a spacious onboard layout and exceptional performance to create a perfect all-round yacht that is ideal for every kind of adventure on the water. Finished to the highest standard, with superyacht DNA in its design, she offers extensive onboard spaces for its guests to enjoy. Large open spaces, with an easy flow, make the most of the catamaran’s huge volume and huge windows flood the yacht with light. Located on the main deck the huge main saloon forms the heart of the yacht, with sofas, a bar, dining space and entertainment systems. Beautiful accommodation is on offer, with versatile configurations to suit a wide range of group sizes and modern and luxurious spaces for guests to retreat to. A particular highlight is the master cabin, which includes a large ensuite, desk space, walk in wardrobe and generous living area. Direct access from the main saloon and out on to the cockpit and foredeck adds to the exclusivity of the master cabin space. Just like the interior, the three main exterior spaces are huge and provide the perfect base for outdoor living. Leading directly out from the main saloon, the large aft cockpit is home to a dining space, extensive seating and direct access up to the flybridge and down to the transom. The forward cockpit includes informal lounge seating, perfect for sheltered relaxation, and provides direct access on to the trampoline net for relaxing and sunbathing. Moving upwards, the flybridge with hardtop – ideal for protection from the heat of the day – is yet another beautiful space with a navigation station, sunpads, seating and unspoiled views across the water. SY JOY being a luxury catamaran for charter is perfect for water lovers and an especially impressive feature is the transom beach club, which opens up at water level to create a base for swimming and water sports, or as a tender dock or prime spot for guests to relax and enjoy the close proximity to beautiful, crystal clear waters. A full sail inventory allows guests to appreciate the serenity of sailing between beautiful destinations. A perfect all-rounder yacht, it is no surprise that the Lagoon Seventy 7 has been such an instant success story.

CAPTAIN: Carl CJ Coetzee
CJ’s passion for the ocean stretches back further than he can remember. Born out of a childhood of summers spent visiting his grandfather’s house on the beach in Cape Town, he always knew he wanted a life by the sea. Starting his career as a dive instructor and professional underwater photographer and videographer, CJ spent many years working with thousands of clients, not only training them how to dive, but sharing his love for the ocean and guiding them to some of the most spectacular underwater locations and majestic marine life.
After many years under the sea, CJ decided to make the move into yachting to expand his experience and build his career. Taking his experiences from large superyachts to smaller award winning charter catamarans, CJ now has 8 years of working experience around the Caribbean, Mediterranean, South East Asia and French Polynesia to make him the perfect captain for any yacht charter.
With experience of transatlantic crossings on spectacular sail yachts, finding Manta rays in the Benguela current off of Mozambique, discovering overhead barrels on never heard of islands lost in the Indian ocean or swimming with Tiger sharks in the Bahamas CJ has a knack of finding the most spectacular treasures that mother nature has to offer.
With a laid back and very friendly disposition, he leads a team of dedicated and professional crew to ensure that all of his guests have the opportunity to enjoy an once in a lifetime experience.
“I am very fortunate to be able to live a life that most could only dream of, however there is no greater joy than sharing that with others, either in, or out of the water.”

MATE-ENGINEER: Luke HAMMERTON
Luke grew up on the East Coast of South Africa with a real passion for the ocean. He has loved surfing and free diving since he was a young boy, so being immersed in and under the water became part of his everyday life. After finishing school Luke went on to study law, but then decided a sailing career was what inspired him most, so he allowed the winds to blow him in a new direction and towards a life on the sea.
Luke’s first onboard job was as 1st Mate on a 72ft ketch cutter mono-hull that took him sailing around the East coast of Africa. After that adventure, he sailed the British Virgin Islands as a charter captain for four years, jumping between 49ft - 65ft sailing catamarans. He loved the experience so much and wanted to explore he more of the world, and what better place than on one of Lagoon’s flagship 77 foot sailing catamarans in French Polynesia.
As an active waterman, Luke loves introducing guests to enjoy a new adventure on board, whether its snorkelling, wakeboarding or banana boating!

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
