Moun Bèu (My Precious in French Creole) is a Lagoon 620 crewed catamaran, offering an unparalleled experience of sailing performance combined with exceptional space both on deck and within the interior. Luxury, elegance, comfort and speed as a way of life.
Moun Bèu features an expansive flybridge with upper lounge deck, a fabulous feature of this cat, with shade under the bimini and lots of sunpads on the sun deck forward. The unique rigging design keeps the working lines out of the way of guests, maximizing the ease and relaxation of sailing and uninterrupted enjoyment of the spectacular scenery of the Caribbean Sea. The flydeck is always a hub of action under sail, but is also a fantastic seating and viewing area, perfect for an evening appetizer or cocktail.
The aft deck, protected from the weather by a hard top bimini, offers plenty of lounge area, built in sunpads, cold drinks fridge, BBQ and al fresco dining with magnificent views. The well designed transom platforms provide easy access to the water when bathing or boarding a dinghy. Another favorite spot while under sail are the double trampolines on the foredeck. Wide sidedecks with flush deck panels and integrated hatchways ensure comfort and safety for easy movement aboard the yacht.
The saloon and cockpit are beautifully integrated and include a wet bar, areas for lazing around, and the option of enjoying meals inside or out. The spacious 360 degree view saloon is the perfect place to relax after a day in the sunshine. All guest cabins have queen berths with plush linens, ample storage and plenty of natural light.
Moun Bèu accommodates 8 guests in four spacious queen cabins, each with en-suite bathrooms. All guest cabins have queen berths with plush linens, ample storage and plenty of natural light provided by large port windows to ensure enjoyment of the scenery from every part of the boat.
The only way to make a great charter yacht even better is the addition of a fabulous crew, and Moun Bèu has just that! Captain Luca and Chef/1st Mate Lucrecia have delighted their guests on past charter yachts and now bring an unprecedented level of service, fabulous cuisine, and friendly hospitality to Moun Bèu.

Dave & Aileen
Aileen and Dave met whilst taking an STCW course in Ft Lauderdale. At the time they were working in the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, respectively. After meeting up again and diving the Cenotes, they recognized it was time to team up for the next adventure.
These past years they have crewed together aboard charter catamarans, running out of the Bahamas, BVI, USVI, St Martin and Turks & Caicos.
Aileen and Dave are a young, professional and energetic crew. Their background is in diving, sailing and traveling around in search of delicious cuisine. Their enthusiasm for what they do is infectious, whether it be scuba, free-diving, sailing or anything to do with the ocean.
Once aboard Moun Beu, their genuine approach to providing an exceptional charter experience will provide memories sure to last.
Captain Aileen was born in Maine and grew up in Iowa. She is a 200ton sailing endorsed, MCA commercial endorsed, offshore Captain and PADI Dive Master. Aileen is an outgoing young professional who will teach you to sail, bring you scuba diving, and mix you your favorite drink. Her easy-going demeanor is tempered by a truly diligent attitude, she is a hands-on skipper and involves herself in all aspects of the vessel.
Chef Dave grew up in Malawi where his love of nature and the water developed. He moved back to the UK and completed two years of Culinary School. Dave’s food has influences from all over the world, and during his extensive experience catering on vessels he has perfected tailoring the menu as needed. All special food requirements are welcomed. Dave is meticulous in providing exquisite food that exhibits his professional restaurant experience. Expect fresh, healthy cuisine, spiced with decadence!See reviews

We had a wonderful trip. Aileen and Dave were incredible Captain, cook and host. I would highly recommend them. The boat was clean and perfectly suited for our crew. Plenty of room to spread out and get your own space. Dave takes his cooking very seriously and put on some incredible meals. He was also very flexible in the menu but everything he made was top shelf. Also the itinerary was great and very flexible. They were very knowledgeable of the area. They are also great swimmers and took us to some really great snorkeling spots and swam with us which made it fun. I would highly recommend them and Moun Beu.
Sailing Direction's services were great and flawless.

For us it was an outstanding trip. It will stay in our mind for a lifetime. The way you looked after us and helped us cruising was so helpful. I also havent eaten so good in a long, long time. Thank you Dave.
We really hope to see you guys soon! Thank you for everything!
Aileen & Dave,
Thank you both for one of the most amazing weeks of our lives. You both were constantly at our service and yet able to blend into the background when appropriate. We love hearing about your personal stories and experiences. It made us feel like we have known you both for a long time! Good luck on your new commission.
We look forward to staying in touch and perhaps meeting again!
Bobby, Sarah, Liza & Maggie
You both are an absolute pleasure. This was one of the best vacations weve had and its because of your commitment to your clients, your fun, sunny dispositions and your boating abilities. We will miss you and Moun Beu and we hope to return soon to enjoy the sun and fun. Thank you all for the TLC you provided the last 4 days and for giving us 100% of your energy, attention and kindness. I would recommend your crew and this boat over and over! We will have the fondest memories.

Thank you for an amazing week in the BVIs. This has been one of my favorite trips, Ive seen more snorkeling with you two than every trip combined here.

Aileen & Dave,
Thank you for the memories. Can I drive the boat?
Thanks for putting up with all these Texans. This trip wouldnt be the same without yall! Sorry for everything we broke/lost, just put it on our bill. Invite us to the wedding.
Thanks so much for a wonderful week. You entertained this group of Texans well. Wishing you the best.
What a great first time experience! The food was fantastic and we had the best time! Thank you so much!
I was very skeptical about how a week on a boat would turn outand AMAZING is the only word I can think of! You were delightful and hard-working and made every moment perfect!
Lendall & David
Thanks so much...a wonderful week. You entertained this group of Texans well.
Wishing you all the best!!
What a great first time experience! The food was fantastic and we had the best time! Thanks so much!
Sharon & David
We plan to find a way to join them again somewhere. Aileen and Dave are the best - Id whole-heartedly recommend sailing with them.
Davids cuisine...one wordAMAZING! We all came aboard with expectations of what the food might be like, and he blew right past them with what he prepared each day. Towards the end of the trip, we called him the magician because we couldnt believe how he was making our meals in such a small place and where he was finding the wonderful ingredients! EVERY meal and snack was a cut above. The presentation and service from both David and Aileen (as she helped out in the kitchen and had a few of her own specialties) were truly 5-stars. We had so much fun with them that we insisted they hang with us when they could. Between the four of us on the trip, we have 4 kids, all in their 20s, and we all wanted to congratulate their parents on a job well done in raising the two of them. We really cant say enough about them. We know that whoever they crew for, will feel the same after their trip. They are truly GEMS OF THE SEA.
