Catamaran Oui Cherie Overview

Oui Cherie is a 2017-launched Lagoon 520 available for fun, exciting and luxurious yacht charters in the Caribbean.

The Lagoon 520, Lagoon's performance luxury model, perfectly intersects the ideas of comfort and capability. The catamaran’s accommodations are fit for the collaboration of adventure and gratification. This 3-guest cabin version (4th cabin is for crew) is perfect for a variety of charter make-ups. Groups of friends or families large and small.

Tremendous amounts of entertaining and relaxing space are available on board this vessel:

Oui Cherie’s flybridge, where the helm and sailing functions meet the enormous convertible settee, provide the best seat in the house whether under sail, or under stars. The forward cockpit lounge where morning coffee meets the sunrise. The aft cockpit where exquisite meals are served and chaise lounges are on both sides of the vessel. The main salon, which houses the open-concept galley, large sofa-chaise and flat-screen TV. And also a more formal dining area should that be desired.

Meet the Crew

Crew photo
Ryan & Jill

Ryan and Jill have lived aboard and sailed over 6,000 nautical miles together. As many guests say, they are a ‘dream team’ and work almost effortlessly beside each other. The couple’s shared passion for the ocean and tropical climate drew them to the Virgin Islands in 2017 where they began chartering on catamarans. With their experience and enthusiasm for life, this crew creates the perfect blend of professionalism and adventure. There is no doubt, that a week aboard Oui Cherie will surpass expectations and become your best vacation yet!

Captain Ryan is from a little fishing town called Shady Side, nestled along Maryland's western shore. He learned to sail on the Chesapeake Bay when he was eleven years old. When he was sixteen, he became a certified US Sailing Instructor and ran his local junior sailing program. Ryan's coastal urge led him to the warmer waters of Wilmington, North Carolina where he attended Cape Fear's Marine Technology School and acquired his 100 ton Master Captain's License. During the summer, you would find Ryan teaching surf lessons at Wrightsville Beach and sailing with his friends as often as he could. ..read more

Jill grew up in Annapolis Maryland. Ironically only about a 30 minute drive from Ryan’s hometown. Jill spent her entire childhood zipping around the Chesapeake too, but by means of a power on a Mastercraft ski boat. You name it: wakeboarding, skiing, tubing, and wakesurfing. She was driving her dad barefoot behind the boat by the age of five.

College brought her south to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where she earned a degree in Health and Applied Science. Upon graduation, Jill started her own personal training business and saved up money to travel. A few years after, Jill became a yoga and stand-up paddleboard instructor and Ryan spent his time developing his maritime skills: chartering boats, rigging, surveying, and gaining lots of valuable sea time as a boat delivery captain.

Ryan and Jill met through mutual friends and their first date was a road trip. Their similar passions for surfing, boating, and good music made it natural for these two fish to fall for one another. What they didn't know was that from here on out- the world would become their oyster. 'Will work for travel' is their motto! The pair are perfect travel companions and have spent lots of time in search of waves in far off places, including Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Iceland, and the Caribbean.

By 2016, Ryan and Jill bought their very first home, a 1985 Niagara 35' sailboat and moved back to the Chesapeake Bay. Vacation time no longer consisted of long plane rides, but long sails.A few years after, Jill became a yoga and stand-up paddleboard instructor and Ryan spent his time developing his maritime skills: chartering boats, rigging, surveying, and gaining lots of valuable sea time as a boat delivery captain.

Throughout their travels Ryan and Jill have been introduced to new recipes and cooking styles which has greatly influenced their charter menu. Jill learned to appreciate the ‘art’ of cooking in New Zealand where infused flavors, unique tastes, and exceptional plating skills are a part of their way of life. All of her adventures have contributed her evolution as a chef and her tasty creations in the Oui Cherie galley. Jill’s cooking style is colorful, healthy, and innovative. She also offers a variety of gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options.

The couples decision to move to the Virgin Islands in 2017 was one of the easiest in their lives. There is not many people that can top their appreciation the for sailing, diving, surfing, fishing, local agriculture/flavor, and good company aboard!

Ryan and Jill are stoked to completing their second season down here Virgin Islands and look forward to welcoming all generations of family and friends aboard!

Reviews for Oui Cherie with Ryan & Jill:

Thank you so much for a great week. We have loved every moment, the week went by much too quickly. All of the food was so yummy and such a treat to not cook for a week :)

Ryan and Jill were fantastic - super friendly and easy to be with - very knowledgeable both from a sailing point (we were very confident in Ryan (and Jill’s) ability to “drive” the boat - they totally knew what they were doing - and also knowledgeable in great areas to snorkel and anchor for the day/night. Accommodating? - Yep! They pretty much asked us what we wanted to do and made it happen each day!

Oui Cherie is a great boat! We were a little worried as our last boat was slightly larger so we were afraid we wouldn’t be “wowed” by this one but that was not the case at all. Because it’s a new boat everything was super clean and new and nice. Favorite part of boat was either the front cushioned area or the flybridge - that really added a lot of extra space to spread out.

What’s not to love about the BVI’s?! Beautiful area and nice warm weather. It has been a great week! Thank you.

Reviews for Ryan & Jill aboard previous yachts:

Jill and Ryan were unreal. Best vacation experience we have ever had - largely due to their considerate demeanor coupled with their incredible knowledge of boating and the local geography. They were like an aunt and uncle to our boys - they loved spending time with them.

Great boat - our favorite part of the yacht was the master stateroom - luxurious!

I was amazed at the food Jill was able to produce given the limited galley she had to work with. We looked forward to eating every meal.

The itinerary was perfect - we were constantly on the go. We loved the choice spots we had to anchor to in the evenings.

I thought you did an excellent job from start to finish. Thank you! We will be sure to recommend you to anyone who asks us about our trip.

Ryan and Jill were outstanding hosts - they made our first extended boating experience exciting and a true pleasure. Not an easy task given that we had 3 boys ages 6, 10 and 13.

Scott M, aboard Catamaran Better Days July 2018  sailing the Virgin Islands

Ryan and Jill were awesome. In the 2 weeks leading up to our arrival Jill was in regular contact with our whole gang on little details from food, drinks and activities. They even got a coconut tree for us to plant on an island.

We enjoyed the entire boat from the trampolines, hanging out front under the sun shade and chilling on the back of the boat.

I am certain there is no other crew that was as prepared food-wise as these guys. I am not sure how many cruises I have been on but it probably more than 24. If I took the best meals from all of those cruises, it wouldn't come close to the food that we ate last week, not even close!

Our charter broker, John, was very responsive the whole time. We will definitely book another trip in the year or 2.

Kevin B, aboard Catamaran Better Days May 2018  sailing the Virgin Islands

Ryan and Jill were fantastic. Ryan is an excellent captain and Jill is equally good as a chef. They spoiled us. They are also very patient, answered all of our questions and were fun to hang out with.

We enjoyed the owners-version suite which was quite spacious. We really enjoyed sitting on the back part of the boat reading and watching the beautiful scenery as we sailed by.

The food was excellent. Jill’s presentations were beautiful. We experienced a new area to spend the night every day. They were all fun and scenic. Very happy with all aspects of the trip. We are certain that we will do this again one day.

Russ K, aboard Catamaran Better Days March 2018  sailing the Virgin Islands

Jill and Ryan were FANTASTIC! We have chartered many times and our whole group enjoyed everything they did, couldn't be more accommodating. Great Crew.

We have chartered Lagoon 50s before, Whitehouse is exceptionally well maintained and equipped. Great Boat

Jill got everything we wanted and requested. The food was too good, I gained 10 lbs. Again, The meals were great, they always offered snacks etc.

We had a great trip, perfect New Years at Anegada at a restaurant they suggested. The hurricane damage was not apparent in our trip, the islands are green, the water is blue and all is beautiful.. unless you look for damage.

Sailing Directions and John Lane were extremely professional and very attentive to accommodate us in sorting through the complications the hurricanes presented, Well done!

I like your website the best as far as crewed charter sites go because you post real pictures of boats the you took, not promotional stuff that could be out of date. I would refer you anytime and will use you in the future.
