Catamaran Altesse Overview

Altesse is a beautiful 2013 Lagoon 560, able to accommodate 8 guests in 4 queen size cabins, or 3 queen cabins and a bunk cabin for kids. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms.

Lagoon 560s are one of the most popular charter boats on the market due to the yacht’s bright and spacious cabins, beautiful internal relaxation areas and wide range of comfortable lounging and dining spaces.

In 2015 Altesse went through a full refit to specifically enhance the experience for charter guests with additions such as a full dining area on the flybridge with an extra BBQ and dining table installed, enhancements to the interior to give her a sophisticated European twist and a custom built 'champagne deck' which extends the cockpit and offers a unique and hugely popular additional relaxation and jumping area.

The yacht has a 70HP dinghy, inclusive diving for up to five guests, new water toys (including an 8 man floating island), updated linen, crockery and furnishings throughout as well as a wine cellar featuring a range of superior French organic wine.

So whether you want activity and exhilaration, or rest and relaxation, Altesse and her award winning crew, who have been chartering in the BVI for 5 years, will ensure that you get everything you wished for and more.

Meet the Crew

Sarah and Richard are highly experienced, award winning charter crew who have completed more than 100 charters in the BVI and been presented with an award for Crew of the Year in 2012. Even more important than that their clients love them and want to keep sailing with this professional, enthusiastic and dedicated couple.

Richard is an accomplished yacht captain, sailor and divemaster. He has sailed extensively in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, but has developed an in-depth knowledge of the BVI, allowing him to adapt the charter to suit the guests on board and show them less frequented coves and bays as well as the hitting the top BVI spots at the best time of day. He has led more than 200 dives in the BVI and knows a large number of dive sites suitable for all levels of diver. Richard also competed internationally as a life guard, so always ensures everyone enjoys the water with the knowledge there is someone on hand to help if they feel out of their depth.

Sarah is always up for an adventure, whether it's sailing, running with guests, hiking, diving or snorkeling.

Reviews for Altesse with Richard & Sarah Bowman:

We had a great time! The boat was amazing! We loved the champagne deck. 5 star gourmet food and presentation. Sarah accommodated all dietary needs.

I was very happy with your service. I’d definitely recommend you!
