Catamaran Makin Memories Overview

This 2016 (2022 Refit) Lagoon 450 offers an amazing amount of space for her size. There are four beautifully appointed queen sized staterooms with lots of light and storage space. Each of the cabins have climate control and pristine ensuite bathrooms. Throughout the yacht light wood is used and the decor is simple and contemporary.

The lounge area has comfortable seating and an indoor dining option - plus the signature Lagoon wraparound windows that offer a fantastic panoramic view. The cockpit is shaded and has two distinct seating areas with lots of space to walk around comfortably - easy access through to the back steps for swimming. The fly bridge is where the sailing action takes place, but is also the best spot for dolphin spotting or just taking in the amazing Virgin Island scenery.

Forward there are trampolines and a great seating area. This new yacht is going to be a popular lady without a doubt!

Meet the Crew

Jim & Courtney

Capt. Jim Travis

Jim grew up on the beaches of Delaware, spending much of his free time boating and playing on the local waters, fishing and surfing year-round. Local fishing, crabbing and clamming were a way of life growing up on the Delaware shores. Seafood feasts were a central part of his family’s customs and celebrations – and the beginning of Jim’s love for exploring the endless spicing and cooking combinations with seafood.

Jim spent his early adult years as a navigator on a minesweeper in the navy during the Gulf War, which, despite the obvious dangers this involved, reaffirmed his love for life on the water and ignited the beginnings of the dream to eventually transition to a full-time career on the water. However, following his career in the navy, Jim’s passion for food and cooking steered him in another direction and he spent the following 10+ years on the west coast in the Monterey Bay area developing and honing his skills in all aspects of the food industry food prepping, serving, and bartending in a variety of environments from eclectic coffee shops to fine dining establishments to large banquet catering events. ..read more

Jim is looking forward to sharing his love of the water and all the different ways you can explore the water from Makin’ Memories…from our paddleboards, to kayaks, to underwater SubLues, to snorkeling gear, to relaxing on our 360 floating dock, with your feet in the blue Caribbean water and one of Jim’s specialty cocktails in hand, letting all your worries float away!

Chef Courtney Travis

Courtney grew up in the Maryland area boating around the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay, and spending many summers on Cape Cod, MA, exploring Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Woods Hole, and all the many islands and hidden beaches around the Buzzards Bay area boating, waterskiing, windsurfing, paddleboarding, kayaking and sailing – playing in or on the water is Courtney’s happy place! Courtney’s passion for food and cooking led her to spend much of her youth working in many different roles in the food service industry from short order cook to catering, bartending, and serving at 5-star restaurants.

In 2009 Courtney began exploring the relationship between food and nutrition and spent many years studying culinary and functional nutrition, and eventually became a Certified Culinary Nutrition Expert from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition in Ontario, Canada, in 2015. Courtney’s culinary passion and expertise focuses on creating nutritious dishes using the best and freshest local organic ingredients possible. Courtney loves spending time in the kitchen and is excited to create delicious meals for you and your guests that feed the body with healthy and balanced foods that will make your taste buds dance!

Courtney and Jim

We met in our early 20’s and became roommates and best friends, bartending together at a local bar in Santa Cruz, CA. Our friendship was instant as we were both very young and a long way from home, but excited for the year-round warmth and endless opportunities to play outside, especially boating, sailing or surfing on the water. We loved working together bartending and providing exceptional service and memorable nights for our customers and friends at the bar. However, as with all things, life moved on and we lost touch over the years. It was over 20 years later when we finally reconnected. Once again, the connection was instant, and we were married 8 months later!

Our shared love for food, warmth, sunshine, boats, entertaining and any and all things water-related was an easy and natural pathway to a shared dream, which is now our reality, buying the boat of our dreams and living full-time in the gorgeous Caribbean waters, hosting memorable vacations and sharing all of our favorite passions in life with others!

We are excited to share this dream with you and your guests, to spoil your taste buds with our years of culinary experience, and to create memorable adventures sailing, swimming, snorkeling . . . and just allowing you to become fully immersed in the natural beauty and island-style pace of life!

We look forward to meeting and serving you….and Makin’ Memories that will last a lifetime!

Reviews for Makin Memories with previous crew:

This has definitely been the BEST vacation so far.

Captain Steven was the most attentive, genuine, sincere captain we could’ve asked for. He was very welcoming to us and always offered assistance in guiding our adventure while still letting us do exactly what we had envisioned. Steven opened up his ‘home’ to us and we are already looking forward to the next sailing vacation with him. Thank you Steven for all you have done to make this an epic, divine, glorious, adventurous holiday. We not only had the best vacation, but also gained a true friend!

SJ (Sarah Jane) was such a welcoming presence as well! The moment we stepped onboard, she had chilled champagne waiting for us, as well as a delicious appetizer. SJ was always providing endless knowledge about the surrounding area, islands...but also made ABSOLUTELY delicious meals! We also feel we gained a special friend with SJ, and can’t wait to hopefully sail with her in the future.

Overall, this vacation has been the perfect escape from our normally crazy busy lives, and one we cherish always!

Thank you Steven and SJ for welcoming us, enjoying wonderful meals and drinks with us, and hanging out is if we’ve known you forever.

Jenny S, aboard Catamaran Makin Memories May 2019  sailing the Virgin Islands
