You'll enter a special world when you step aboard Avalon, ready to cruise the beautiful British Virgin Islands. Avalon is the perfect charter yacht; a 2010 launched Lagoon 620 - Lagoon's flagship model. A classic catamaran, spacious and comfortable, she's equally at home cruising before the gentle Caribbean trade winds or sailing like a racer if you are ever in a hurry.
The catamaran features five air conditioned Queen size double cabins, each with its own private shower and bathroom, a spacious saloon and galley, a comfortable shaded cockpit and a large fly bridge helm station with additional seating and sun bathing - the flybridge offers a dramatic 360 degree view and is a great place to be while under sail.
Avalon is fully equipped with modern amenities including a Bose music system with iPod hookup, LCD DVD and is fully air conditioned.
From the moment your Captain and Chef welcome you aboard they will take care of your every need and ensure you enjoy a sailing holiday that will be a memory for life.

We're in-flight on our way home wishing we were still on the Avalon. We had such an incredible time! Alex, Carla and Molly were the best hosts ever and the Avalon was luxurious. We never saw a better craft on the water. Thanks for getting us on that boat!
Larry G, aboard Catamaran Avalon sailing the British Virgin Islands
We had a lovely trip! The crew was great, very accommodating and professional. Carla's cooking was off the charts. Every meal was fabulous! We had asked for healthy food and we got it served to us in a fresh and unique way.
The boat was lovely. Everything felt fresh and clean and it was a very comfortable size for our family of 6.
The itinerary was great. We had lots of options for activities such as snorkeling and paddle boarding, or we could just relax on the beach or boat. I am sure we will do a similar trip again!
Ashley B, aboard Catamaran Avalon sailing the British Virgin Islands
Avalon is a very spacious, new feeling catamaran that has more lounging space than any other I've experienced in the BVI's - in the salon, upstairs and even the 4 large, comfy beanbag chairs out front. We were extremely impressed and plan to return to Avalon in the future!
Alex & Carla absolutely optimize the type of top quality, 5-star service that my wife and I have come to expect after 10+ BVI CAT trips! Alex is an experienced, knowledgeable Captain who knows the BVI's like the back of his hand. He took us to some of the most scenic snorkeling destinations, and also knew about all the cool bars, restaurants & musical entertainment along the way (and he makes a great Painkiller).
Carla is a sincere, service oriented chef who prepared some absolutely incredible meals (loved the daily homemade bread), while paying close attention to the (many) food preferences expressed beforehand by our group.

I will speak with you early 2017 to book next summer!!!!
The Avalon is spectacular! She is beautifully decorated and so spacious. It was wonderful having such abundant outside space to enjoy the glorious views. It is obvious that Avalon is well taken care of and very loved. Each time we came in to a cove, others were in awe. Not only were we the largest catamaran, but definitely the most beautiful. What an unbelievable boat!
Captain Alex, you made everyone feel at home from the moment we stepped onboard. Your knowledge and expertise in your job was apparent in every aspect of our trip. Your gentle smile put each one of us at ease and made sure that we were having fun. Your ability to share information, both fun and historical, made island hopping so much fun. It was fascinating that we always found a front row spot, no matter where we went. You made certain that we were comfortable and were entertained, both on and off the boat. You encouraged us to stretch our comfort levels and enjoy the amenities and that was a stretch for me. I will never forget being pulled at slow speed (your words) round and round the cove and later flying up in the sky on the rope swing. Wow! So much fun! And, you make a mean painkiller!
Carla, you are an amazing talent! Not only are you lovely, but you are extraordinary in the galley. Our meals and wine choices were delicious and the food presentation was incredible. Your attention to every detail - whether it was our food allergies or just our own personal preferences was so appreciated. You made each meal and cocktail hour- an event that we looked forward to each day. You know how much we loved your cookies and your willingness to share your scrumptious recipes was so kind. You are such an asset to your family and to the Avalon.
Bea, you made meal time so much fun. Your sweet smile and willingness to always please made each meal extra special. I will never forget your offering me orange ju-ice each morning and how you remembered our specific likes and dislikes. Your personality and ability to joke along with us made dining such a pleasure. We also appreciate how clean and organized you kept our rooms. That was quite the undertaking! Thank you for being so kind and helpful.
Again, we appreciate your many acts of kindness and for putting up with our craziness during our week on the Avalon. Thank you for making this week a special celebration and for giving us a lasting memory of Im on the boat!
Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you again. Until then..
Susan and Mac
Absolutely the best crew in the BVI, Carlas meals were amazing and Alex is just a crazy SOB, perfect for our group. The thing that was evident from the start is how attentive they both are to making sure you have a great time, which we did in spades.
We loved their approach to making our trip memorable, the itinerary was perfect, spent days at beautiful beaches and then Alex would run the girls to shore for shopping expeditions then come back and entertain the boys with watersports or fishing. They worked their butts off, constantly making us cocktails and spoiling us.
Avalon was very well maintained and we had no problems whatsoever, as we sailed to different locations; Alex provided commentary on the islands and points of interest, hes awesome.
They both made us feel like family, and I know I came away with a deeper respect for how much work is involved in taking care of 8 guests for a week. If you cant tell by now, we had an amazing trip with these two and only way I would come back is with Alex and Carla.
I very much appreciate all you did to simplify the process. Hope to see yall again in the near future. Thanks again for a great trip.
Our family, including 2 grandparents and 2 grandchildren ages 7 and 9, enjoyed a week on the Avalon in April 2015. If you are considering booking, dont hesitate. The yacht, the crew, the dining, and the itinerary were all top notch.
The Avalon is luxurious and well-maintained. Our family has done charters in the past, but this was a whole new level. The living area, the cabins, the bathrooms, etc are all incredibly nice and everything looks pristine and new. Its like a floating Four Seasons, which is really an achievement considering the constant maintenance required to keep a yacht that size in top shape.
Alex and Carla are an outstanding crew. They catered to our every need, and they can be very interactive or they can give you more privacy depending on the style of service you prefer. They designed the perfect itinerary based on what we wanted to experience in the BVI. Alex is an experienced sailor, and he knows just about everything there is to know about every island in the BVI. Hes great with kids, and he helped us play a hilarious April Fools day prank on our boys. Alex also makes the best Pina Coladas ever, so dont miss out on that.
Carla is an amazing chef, and she really went above and beyond catering to a group containing several picky eaters. My parents are gluten free and dairy free, and my children extremely picky about what they eat. To make things more complicated, my wife and I are adventuresome eaters. Somehow Carla managed to make everyone happy, which would normally require going to 3 different restaurants. And the meals were exceptional including artistic presentation and delicious deserts. Carla also made awesome snacks, which were perfect after a swim, snorkel, hike, or paddle.
In summary, the yacht, the crew, and the experience were all outstanding. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a cruise in the BVI or anywhere else Alex and Carla will take you.
All the best,
Paula, Eric, Alex, Peter, & Tanya - San Francisco

I cannot personally thank Carla for being a beautiful person and fabulous chef. Bea ... Is a kind soul with a fantastic memory for all we needed. Alex is a Master Captain, ever attentive, making sure we were all safe and well. I shall miss you all.
Thank you Alex for sailing us to the best spots & taking is through the plethora of water sports on board! Thank you Carla & Bea for serving such lovely meals & being so generous with the recipes!! Amazing food, Carla!!!

Thank you for such an amazing week on the ocean! We enjoyed every day and can't wait to come back! You three are simply the best, down to the very last detail. Seriously - keep up the good work. We will see you again for sure. Wonderful!
Alex & Julie
We loved our time with you! Thank you so much for showing us the most amazing sports here in the BVi. We had the best week while we were here. Heaven, Heaven, Heaven ... does exist on earth ... and it is here on Avalon. Thank you for a glimpse into life on the islands that we will never forget.
Kate & Peter
Thank you so much for the fabulous trip. Everything was wonderful - I'm sad to leave ... Hopefully, I'll be back and we can do it again.
All our love,

We can't say enough about the quality of the trip and the attention to detail. We have so many wonderful memories and photos too. I think Alex is going to use some of the shots for their facebook page. Our kids caught two big fish one day and we managed to capture the haul on camera!! That shot alone is enough to entice any family with young children.
We'd love to do another trip with them on the Avalon.
Warmly (and with sun tan lines galore)-

Well, weve been home for a week and were still riding high on our happiness from that fabulous with you guys. Thank you, thank you for that you did to make that very special week more than we ever could have hope for or imagined. Believe me, our expectations were high (and I was a little worried about that going in) but you made it so that it surpassed anything we dreamed of. We will treasure the memories forever and be ever grateful that we were fortunate enough to spend the time with you on the beautiful Avalon.
Thank you so very much.

Your crew's sole aim is to use their intimate knowledge of the BVI to ensure you enjoy your holiday to the full. They know all the exciting places for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as the most beautiful bays and inlets to anchor during the day and quietly at night. They will provide first class hospitality throughout your time aboard including gourmet meals and a range of cocktails and cold beverages from the bar.
The Virgin Islands are more sheltered from the open ocean than other Caribbean areas, they are close to each other and there are numerous quiet and calm anchorages. You rarely need to sail for more than two or three hours to get from one place to the next. There are dozens of quiet anchorages to enjoy, many excellent spots for diving and snorkeling, a variety of shore excursions are possible and you can always find something interesting going on in the evening, if you wish to.
