Catamaran Amazing Lady Overview

Amazing Lady is a fantastic 2015 Lagoon 560 cruising catamaran offering the best in sailing innovation combined with luxurious accommodations and four social areas.

Inside the spacious salon, find yourself surrounded by vertical windows offering 360-degree visibility and plenty of natural light. A large u-shaped lounge is the central social area and converts to an elegant space for formal indoor dining. The large galley has a convenient storage console that separates it from the salon.

From the saloon, open the large sliding doors and the interior flows outside to the spacious aft terrace. Here guests can relax under a large bimini that shades a custom alfresco dining table which seats eight comfortably.

Up a spiral staircase from the main deck, the flybridge is a popular spot with guests. The helm is forward, surrounded by electric winches and all the necessary sail-control lines for the skipper. Aft, there are cushion-covered benches for sitting and lounging and a great sunbathing area, all separated from the sail maneuvers area. A canvas top helps protect everyone on the flybridge from the sun.

Below deck, four staterooms accommodate eight guests in two queen cabins aft and two queen cabins forward. For families or singles 1 queen cabin can be switched for a Twin bunk cabin which is also en-suite. The two aft cabins both have direct access to the aft deck as well as the salon and have walk-around beds. The forward cabins have a large window that provides great natural light. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms, excellent storage, hanging lockers and shelves.

Meet the Crew

Roland & Vanessa Schaeffer

Captain Roland

Roland has been an avid and competitive boater since he was waist high. He began challenging the surf with the Sea Scouts and Dinghy Racing at school. He went on to earn a living in the corporate world while pursuing his true passion for yachting. He obtained the requisite RYA Yacht Master Off-shore License, bid the corporate world farewell, and launched his career as a Captain of the Sea. He has delivered yachts, including 12 trans-Atlantic crossings, and has sailed more than 100,000 nautical miles.

Roland knows exactly how to inspire guests to have the vacation of their lives aboard his charter yacht. He has been a Charter Captain since 2005, initially aboard a Privilege 48 catamaran based in Antigua and sailing throughout the Caribbean. He enjoys sharing his many passions, kite surfing, cycling, scuba diving, free diving and fishing, with eager guests. As a PADI Dive Master/Rescue Diver with 1000's of dives, he knows the best spots to experience the wonders of life beneath the sea. His forte is exploring off the grid, and to experience the authentic Caribbean.

Chef Vanessa Schaeffer

Vanessa embarked on a live aboard dive vacation in the Red Sea. The experience inspired her to abandon life in the culinary industry and set her course for new horizons. She spent many years in the restaurant industry in countries around the world, from South Africa to Central America to Europe. She successfully owned a coffee shop in the heart of prestigious London-Marylebone Lanenever, but gave it up to follow her passion for life at sea. ..read more

Vanessa has always loved the art of cooking. Her Mother was her first inspiration, teaching her as a child to create dishes to please. Her family and friends were foodies. Everyone in her circle was keen on experimenting with new ideas and sharing recipes. Traveling the globe, she became adept at incorporating new ingredients and methods into her menus. Guests rave about her cooking, which is always fresh and innovative. She can also delight the palate of guests on restricted diets, such as vegan or gluten free. When not in the galley, she enjoys a range of high-energy sports, hiking, skiing, river rafting, kayaking and scuba diving, and enthusiastically shares tips and talents with her charter guests. Like Roland, Vanessa is also a qualified Dive Master taught to lead dives in a commercial environment, so charter guests have the benefit of two Dive Masters if they wish to scuba dive!

Roland and Vanessa are charming hosts, vibrant, energetic, and with an unfailing sense of humor. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, they have known each other for 20 + years and were married in February 2010. They have sailed throughout the Caribbean since 2004 and have many delightful stories to share. Charter Amazing Lady and you will easily understand why their list of repeat charter guests just keeps getting longer.

Both are non-smokers.

Reviews for Amazing Lady with Roland & Vanessa Schaeffer:

We had a fantastic vacation aboard Amazing Lady with Roland and Vanessa!

The food was excellent, well presented and customized to our preferences. Vanessa is a great cook and Roland was a pro on the grill.

I would suggest people fly in and out of Tortola or another BVI airport instead of USVI. Doing so might save time going through customs at the start and at the end of the charter.

Each anchorage was unique and enjoyable. Beautiful!

Andrew R, aboard Catamaran Amazing Lady sailing the British Virgin Islands

We met Roland and Vanessa for the first time and we fell in love with them immediately. With only 4 nights on the yacht it was important to utilize that time to its maximum. Roland and Vanessa had it all planned and we loved it. It was perfect for us. There was something for everybody. The food onboard was excellent. We felt we were dining at the finest restaurant every day. Roland and Vanessa showed professionalism far beyond what we have expected. Watching their teamwork in everything aboard was a pleasure. We could not have gotten a better crew than those two. Thanks again Roland and Vanessa for given us an adventure that we never will forget.

Nina C, aboard Catamaran Amazing Lady sailing the British Virgin Islands

Amazing Lady is gorgeous! Lived up to her name :) There were plenty of areas to lounge, it never felt crowded, even with nine ladies. My favorite part of the yacht was probably the trampolines in the front, but the area in front of the cockpit with the sails was also a favorite location for us to act as "sirens" :)

The crew were fantastic. Very friendly, professional and attentive.

The dining could have been our favorite part of the trip. Vanessa was FANTASTIC with her food preparation. She keenly took notice of our requests for healthy food, a lot of seafood, vegetables, her salads were just AMAZING. There was enough meat (and fantastic quality) for the carnivores to be happy as clams, too. There was not a single person unhappy with a single meal. We looked forward to the next meal at every moment!

We LOVE LOVE LOVED Roland and Vanessa. We wanted to bring them home with us! They were fun, provided fantastic service and took great care of us when we became out of control party animals :)

Christine M, aboard Catamaran Amazing Lady sailing the Virgin Islands

What can we say? You both made this week so amazing in every way - your hospitality, the food, showing us sights we had never seen before and many, many laughs! We will treasure these memories forever and we are so grateful for the chance to meet you two! Hope to see you again soon.

David F, aboard Catamaran Amazing Lady sailing the British Virgin Islands

Roland and Vanessa were amazing! We could not have asked for a better crew! They understood our humor, were extremely knowledgeable and attentive. We know this trip would not have been as wonderful if we had a different crew. We would definitely recommend Roland and Vanessa.

We loved Amazing Lady! It was very comfortable and clean. We did have a problem with the air conditioner one night, but Roland was able to fix it and we didn't have any further issues. It is hard to pick a favorite, but we all loved sitting together for meals at the outdoor table. It was a great gathering spot.

The food was delicious! Vanessa is a wonderful cook and Roland is a great griller! The menu was perfect for our group.

This was our first trip to the BVI's. We managed to see a little bit of everything and now have some favorite spots to return to and ideas on where else to explore.

Sailing Directions answered all our questions and was very responsive. We have passed the website and yacht information on to some of our friends.

We loved that Roland and Vanessa snorkeled with us. Their knowledge of the area was very much appreciated.

Sheila E, aboard Catamaran Amazing Lady sailing the British Virgin Islands

Roland and Vanessa are quite simply "the best". They are very knowledgeable, hardworking and fun. They work extremely well together and each brings exceptional and complimentary skills to the table. It is clear that their top priority is their guests' safety and enjoyment. Their knowledge of the BVIs is vast and each were always willing to share as much information as one would want to know.

Roland and Vanessa are very attentive and sensitive to the needs of their guests. They are fun to hang with but very low key and only joined in when invited. Roland and Vanessa are both extremely patient and have easy going dispositions.

Roland is an exceptional sailor, teacher, diver and drink mixer. Vanessa is an exceptional chef. The food was delicious, creative, healthy and plentiful. She was always willing to share recipes and ingredients.

This was truly the trip of a lifetime for all four couples and each of us would like to return to the BVIs and the Amazing Lady sometime in the future.

We very much appreciated the professional assistance provided by Sailing Directions when booking the perfect boat for our group. John was always prompt with answers to any questions and gave helpful advice to aid in decisions regarding water taxi and ferry transportation to and from our cruise departure and arrival location.

The Amazing Lady is a very apt name for a boat that could not have been better designed for comfort and style. She sailed smoothly and held her own one day under very windy and rough sea conditions!

November 16-20, 2016 ~ Want to return next year!
Our daughter decided long time ago that she wanted to something special for her 40th birthday. She loves to travel so it had to be something that would take her somewhere. Several things was suggested. She wanted to bring her family and a few close friends on this adventure. The decision fell on a boat trip in the Caribbean. After a lot of research she decided on the " Amazing Lady". And so she was.
Ten of us boarded this beautiful yacht on Wednesday November 16. We met Roland and Vanessa for the first time and we fell in love with them immediately. With only 4 nights on the yacht it was important to utilize that time to its maximum. Roland and Vanessa had it all planned and we loved it. It was perfect for us. It was something for everybody.

The food onboard was excellent. We felt we were dining at the finest restaurant every day. Roland and Vanessa showed a professionalism far beyond what we have expected.

Watching their teamwork in everything onboard was a pleasure. They were always there for us assisting when it was needed or informing us about interesting matters.

We could not have gotten a better crew than those two.
Thanks again Roland and Vanessa for given us an adventure that we never forget.

Regards,

P.S.: The Amazing Lady is a very apt name for a boat that could not have been better designed for comfort and style. She sailed smoothly and held her own one day under very windy and rough sea conditions!

From Roland and Vanessa\'s previous charter boat - guest comments:
The guest comments below are from Roland and Vanessa's previous charter boat.
Dec. BVI Charter
We knew from the start you were an exceptional couple. You graciously waited on us, encouraged us, fed us and all around cared for us in such a wonderful way. Your knowledge of the sea, history, fish, sailing and geography was amazing. It was only superseded by your sunny personalities and sense of humor. You have been a gift to us and our dear friends. We especially enjoyed the way you interacted with each other with such respect and politeness. Until we meet again!

Vanessa and Roland were great. Roland was probably one of the best captains we have ever had. He is extremely funny and thoughtful. They took the time to get to know us and we really enjoyed their company. Greg H.

Roland and Vanessa were fabulous. We could not have asked for a more accommodating or friendlier crew! Vanessa's food was amazing and the presentation was stunning!! We had a wonderful time. Roland and Vanessa made it very special and I must say it is now a top 2 vacation. They went out of their way to make sure we had a fabulous time and catered to our every need. They were so personable and I now consider them to be our friends. We will definitely be taking this vacation again and I hope we are able to book Roland and Vanessa again.

Reviews for Roland & Vanessa Schaeffer aboard previous yachts:

Roland and Vanessa know exactly what they’re doing and do it all with grace, humor and kindness. They were delightful to adults and teenagers alike, no small feat!

Everything on Flow is as comfortable as it can be. Our favorite aspect is that the yacht is big enough to provide many different areas to hang out so, despite having 9 of us (plus Roland and Vanessa), including five teenagers, no one felt crowded or cramped. We even kept offering to let the teenagers off the boat to go to restaurants and bars on shore by themselves and they consistently declined to leave!

Vanessa is a gifted chef. Seriously. We’ve had other experiences being cooked for in this way and she was the best ever.

If you are considering a vacation on a yacht crewed by Roland and Vanessa, just do it! You absolutely will not be disappointed! They are fun, kind, knowledgeable and incredibly service-oriented. Everyone loved them and would sail with them again in a heartbeat.
