Since its debut in 2016, the new Lagoon Seventy 7 catamaran has been in record-breaking demand. Built in France by CNB and designed by a super-star team of VPLP, Patrick Le Quément and Nauta Design, the Seventy 7 is the new flagship for builder Lagoon and boasts gentle and precise lines for a refined and harmonious overall look. As an unbeatable choice for a bespoke yacht charter holiday, JOY combines pedigree design with luxurious styling, a spacious onboard layout and exceptional performance to create a perfect all-round yacht that is ideal for every kind of adventure on the water. Finished to the highest standard, with superyacht DNA in its design, she offers extensive onboard spaces for its guests to enjoy. Large open spaces, with an easy flow, make the most of the catamaran’s huge volume and huge windows flood the yacht with light. Located on the main deck the huge main saloon forms the heart of the yacht, with sofas, a bar, dining space and entertainment systems. Beautiful accommodation is on offer, with versatile configurations to suit a wide range of group sizes and modern and luxurious spaces for guests to retreat to. A particular highlight is the master cabin, which includes a large ensuite, desk space, walk in wardrobe and generous living area. Direct access from the main saloon and out on to the cockpit and foredeck adds to the exclusivity of the master cabin space. Just like the interior, the three main exterior spaces are huge and provide the perfect base for outdoor living. Leading directly out from the main saloon, the large aft cockpit is home to a dining space, extensive seating and direct access up to the flybridge and down to the transom. The forward cockpit includes informal lounge seating, perfect for sheltered relaxation, and provides direct access on to the trampoline net for relaxing and sunbathing. Moving upwards, the flybridge with hardtop – ideal for protection from the heat of the day – is yet another beautiful space with a navigation station, sunpads, seating and unspoiled views across the water. SY JOY being a luxury catamaran for charter is perfect for water lovers and an especially impressive feature is the transom beach club, which opens up at water level to create a base for swimming and water sports, or as a tender dock or prime spot for guests to relax and enjoy the close proximity to beautiful, crystal clear waters. A full sail inventory allows guests to appreciate the serenity of sailing between beautiful destinations. A perfect all-rounder yacht, it is no surprise that the Lagoon Seventy 7 has been such an instant success story.

Joe grew up in Auckland, New Zealand where his family owned a small powerboat which he used to spend as much time as possible out on the ocean, primarily water skiing and fishing.
While completing a Civil Engineering degree, Joe went on a sailing holiday to Croatia and accidentally ended up with a job for the rest of the season.
He spent the next few years trying to juggle a ‘normal’ job with getting away to sail as much as possible, before committing to sailing full time in 2018.
Since then he has worked extensively in Greece, Croatia, Spain and the Caribbean, along with delivering yachts all over Europe and completing four trans-Atlantic and one Pacific crossing.
Joe has over 40,000 sailing miles, and holds his Yachtmaster Ocean certification.
Before moving onto Joy, Joe's most recent position was Captain aboard Anna Pink, a Bali 5.4 catamaran.
He ran this vessel for two and a half years, from handover from the factory as a new build, through seasons in Spain, Greece and the Bahamas.
Alongside sailing, Joe’s other love is endurance sport and he has completed a number of marathons and Ironman triathlons.

One month charter on JOY - Rangiroa to Bora Bora - Aug.-Sept. 2019
This has been the most remarkable vacation - a month on a boat with an unknown crew - and for the crew unknown guests, was a step in the dark - it has proved to be one of the best decisions of our lives. Four weeks on a very special boat, crewed by four very special people has been a JOY and a privilege. CJ’s sailing skills took us to perfect locations at every stage - avoiding “bombies” all the way. Every member of the crew has contributed significantly to our enJOYment - never an empty glass and such quality and variety of meals that deserve Michelin stars. CJ’s knowledge of the likely locations of the different areas to view, from tiny fish to 4 metre manta rays is uncanny! We have had the most memorable sightings of whales, manta, sting and eagle rays as well as dolphins off the bow and sharks swimming around us. I don’t possess adequate superlatives in wishing to say a huge thanks to CJ, Lexi, Fabiana and Pablo - you have all been stars and made our dream a reality. From our hearts, thank you all. Bill & Hayley
Romantic Anniversary Charter_Bora Bora-Raiatea_28.09.-05.10.2019

Joy is top of all the perfect words for an unforgettable holiday, with a perfect crew, very professional, however being very friendly, and also with amazing food, very healthy and tasty. Thanks again for everything and hope to be [back] aboard very soon. Marina & Sylvian Switzerland
Charter November 5 - 14, 2020 Rangiroa - Tikehau / 2 Americans
Wow, what a magical adventure the last 9 days have been. The deepest gratitude to every human on this special boat, JOY, for ensuring that our trip was one of the most amazing and tranformative trips of our lives. We leave today feeling as if we not only made 6 new beautiful friends but life long adventure buddies. Thank you for making us free the family keeping us safe, showing us the beauty of French Polynesia and keeping us in fits of laughter. Lexy you may be one of the funniest humans i've ever met. Your jou of life, lightearted attitude and witty humor were a big highlight of my trip. Thank you provideed me with so much safty, knowledge and some deep belty laughs. Thank you! There's so much more I would like to share but words weren't created to express my deep gratitude for the trip you are made possible. from dancing with daolphins encounters, delicious food and incredible company. This the best trip I have ever been on and will forever live in my heart. We see how hard you worked to make this happen and we look forward to the many adventures we will share together. So much love and beams of lights. M.
from the broker, W. Family Hawaii / May 31 – June 10, 2021, Hunahine – Bora Bora
"Sailing vessel JOY is very aptly named...she is a beautiful, comfortable, unforgettable, modern, catamaran. The fantastic experience we were lucky enough to have in French Polynesia for 10 days was something our family will never forget. JOY is well appointed with every amenity and all the ocean toys you could need. The captain C.J. and crew Lexi & Jorge were exceptionally pleasant, engaging and very accommodating. They seemed to anticipate all of our needs and requests. Chef Jen exceeded our expectations! Every meal was creative and delicious. We were constantly telling each other what a treat it was to have this level of proficiency in our young chef! (and we are a family of restaurants and wine producers...not an easy bunch to surprise.) Overall, we whole heartedly recommend this trip and this boat and crew to everyone!! The W. Family, Maui, Hawaii" Thank you both for all your assistance with the last two charters on JOY. Both clients had excellent experiences and we look forward to sending many more charters to CJ and his crew on JOY.
Charter on August 9-18, 2021 / Tahiti - Bora / American group of 4
Thank you for the check up. All is fabulous! We are very much enjoying the trip. The crew and food have been fabulous. It's exactly what we needed!! We can't thank you enough for helping us put this trip together..oh and we were able to swim above a male whale ... It was amazing!
Charter on April 29 - May 6, 2022 in the Tuamotu - American group of 8
We have been having a fantastic time! Life doesn’t get any better than on the Joy Thank you CJ and your team for the great charter.
Charter on April 2-9, 2023 / French Polynesia / American family of 8
The crew of JOY were well beyond our expectations. Captain CJ, a friendly South African, and his lovely wife Lexi, a Brit from Yorkshire have been in these islands on JOY for 5 years and know these waters exceedingly well. Luke, also a fully qualified Captain, was the ship’s engineer and did a great job keeping us safe and his partner Danica was the chef. We provided a bit of a challenge with three kids and a few dietary restrictions from some of the passengers. The meals were served family style, and were absolutely wonderful. Luke and Danica were also from South Africa. The yacht was spacious, incredibly well laid out, and was finished beautifully. We had not been on a catamaran before. My wife and I have been on perhaps 25 or more cruises, but the catamaran was a real treat for us. It was incredibly steady during some windy crossings. The absolute highlight of the trip was snorkelling these warm crystal blue oceans. Captain CJ took us to spectacular locations, where we swam with black tipped reef sharks. They are from about 3 feet to 7 feet, and are curious, but seem to be harmless. They bumped our legs to see if we should be lunch, and they swam right up to us. It was a bit nerve wracking at first, but as we got used to them, it was an incredible experience. We swam with endless types of tropical fish. Sort of like snorkelling in your dentist’s aquarium. Safety was always paramount, and the crew took incredible care of us. No one ever rushed us, and CJ always explained in great detail prior to us leaving the catamaran what we were to expect. Getting into, and out of tenders is always tricky, particularly for us at age 70, but they made it safe and effortless. We snorkelled most days in spectacular locations. There was one narrow channel between two islands where there was a slow moving current, a sort of lazy river. We snorkelled that lazy river two or three times each and saw endless tropical fish and colourful coral. The water is simply the best we have ever seen, and we have snorkelled around the world. All of the islands are surrounded by a coral barrier reef, perhaps two kilometres offshore. The water within this barrier reef is very calm. We went to a couple of local art galleries and a couple of pearl farms. This area produces amazing black pearls very sought after by jewelers around the world. We were sad to say goodbye to the crew. We felt that we had made true friends, and we look forward to sailing with them again, perhaps in a different part of the world. After we got off the yacht at Bora Bora, we are at the Four Seasons Bora Bora in their world famous over water bungalows for 5 nights. It is everything you would expect from a tropical, world famous Four Seasons. This was a world class trip, made particularly memorable by the crew and the yacht JOY”.
March 11-18, 2023 - Huahine - Bora Bora / group of 6 from USA
Broker's report Exceeding expectations !!! Capt CJ and crew are absolutely fantastic! Already talking about booking another one next year!
Charter on June 10-17, 2023 in French Polynesia - A group of 8 from Arizona
We had an unbelievable time on this charter! The crew blew us away with their level of service. We just spoke with the rest of our charter group, and they are very excited to start planning for our next charter. CJ was a spectacular captain and we would like our next captain to have similar knowledge about diving and marine biology. The size of the catamaran was perfect during this charter. There are no words to describe how wonderful things went! We are at the Four Seasons in Bora Bora for a few days before we head home. We actually invited the crew to join us for drinks last night because they were so fantastic! Thanks, CJ, I wanted to reach out to thank you and the entire crew for a fantastic vacation. We have been pleased by all the 2 person crews of our 3 prior ~50-foot charters and expected the same, but you far exceeded our high expectations. There is no comparison to be made with the televised soap opera expectations. You have the perfect Captain demeanor; confident and in command, without being superior. Your passion for the sea and its creatures is clear and inspiring, adding to our sense of adventure. Lexi also could not be more perfectly charming, engaging, and helpful. The perfect steward. Luke and Danika too were both a total pleasure to be around and helpful in every way. Danika's culinary skills are world-class-delicious. Hoping to charter with you again and/or cross paths in the future. Please forward our thanks and contact info to the rest of the crew and let them know they are always welcome to stay with us in Old Town Scottsdale. Warmest regards,
Charter on September 9-16, 2023 / Huahine - Bora Bora / American group of 8
The vessel is fantastic. She’s clean, modern, spacious. 5/5. The crew is incredible. Captain CJ has just the right mix of ship commander and friend. Lexi was the consummate host. Luke was very professional. He’s a reserved guy and we loved getting him out of his shell. Danika’s food was 5 star. The presentation, variety, thoughtfulness…she blew us away.
Charter on Oct 18-25, 2023 in Papeete - Huahine / 8 American guests
Dear Joe, Georgie, Danika & Luke, Thanks you so very much for your professionalism, care, friendship and creativity over the course of our most spectacular trip !!! Whales, stingrays, sharks, sparkly fish, white sand, coral, deep blue & turquoise waters, laughter galore, excellent cocktails, never-before experiences, lot of pampering, multi dimensional times of incredible activities, eight extra pounds per person over only 3 meals per day... Your delightful personalities made our trip extra special as we felt welcome, safe. Well done!!!

One month charter on JOY - Rangiroa to Bora Bora - Aug.-Sept. 2019
This has been the most remarkable vacation - a month on a boat with an unknown crew - and for the crew unknown guests, was a step in the dark - it has proved to be one of the best decisions of our lives. Four weeks on a very special boat, crewed by four very special people has been a JOY and a privilege. CJ’s sailing skills took us to perfect locations at every stage - avoiding “bombies” all the way. Every member of the crew has contributed significantly to our enJOYment - never an empty glass and such quality and variety of meals that deserve Michelin stars. CJ’s knowledge of the likely locations of the different areas to view, from tiny fish to 4 metre manta rays is uncanny! We have had the most memorable sightings of whales, manta, sting and eagle rays as well as dolphins off the bow and sharks swimming around us. I don’t possess adequate superlatives in wishing to say a huge thanks to CJ, Lexi, Fabiana and Pablo - you have all been stars and made our dream a reality. From our hearts, thank you all. Bill & Hayley

from the broker, W. Family Hawaii / May 31 – June 10, 2021, Hunahine – Bora Bora
"Sailing vessel JOY is very aptly named...she is a beautiful, comfortable, unforgettable, modern, catamaran. The fantastic experience we were lucky enough to have in French Polynesia for 10 days was something our family will never forget. JOY is well appointed with every amenity and all the ocean toys you could need. The captain C.J. and crew Lexi & Jorge were exceptionally pleasant, engaging and very accommodating. They seemed to anticipate all of our needs and requests. Chef Jen exceeded our expectations! Every meal was creative and delicious. We were constantly telling each other what a treat it was to have this level of proficiency in our young chef! (and we are a family of restaurants and wine producers...not an easy bunch to surprise.) Overall, we whole heartedly recommend this trip and this boat and crew to everyone!! The W. Family, Maui, Hawaii" Thank you both for all your assistance with the last two charters on JOY. Both clients had excellent experiences and we look forward to sending many more charters to CJ and his crew on JOY.

Charter on April 29 - May 6, 2022 in the Tuamotu - American group of 8
We have been having a fantastic time! Life doesn’t get any better than on the Joy Thank you CJ and your team for the great charter.
Charter on April 2-9, 2023 / French Polynesia / American family of 8
The crew of JOY were well beyond our expectations. Captain CJ, a friendly South African, and his lovely wife Lexi, a Brit from Yorkshire have been in these islands on JOY for 5 years and know these waters exceedingly well. Luke, also a fully qualified Captain, was the ship’s engineer and did a great job keeping us safe and his partner Danica was the chef. We provided a bit of a challenge with three kids and a few dietary restrictions from some of the passengers. The meals were served family style, and were absolutely wonderful. Luke and Danica were also from South Africa. The yacht was spacious, incredibly well laid out, and was finished beautifully. We had not been on a catamaran before. My wife and I have been on perhaps 25 or more cruises, but the catamaran was a real treat for us. It was incredibly steady during some windy crossings. The absolute highlight of the trip was snorkelling these warm crystal blue oceans. Captain CJ took us to spectacular locations, where we swam with black tipped reef sharks. They are from about 3 feet to 7 feet, and are curious, but seem to be harmless. They bumped our legs to see if we should be lunch, and they swam right up to us. It was a bit nerve wracking at first, but as we got used to them, it was an incredible experience. We swam with endless types of tropical fish. Sort of like snorkelling in your dentist’s aquarium. Safety was always paramount, and the crew took incredible care of us. No one ever rushed us, and CJ always explained in great detail prior to us leaving the catamaran what we were to expect. Getting into, and out of tenders is always tricky, particularly for us at age 70, but they made it safe and effortless. We snorkelled most days in spectacular locations. There was one narrow channel between two islands where there was a slow moving current, a sort of lazy river. We snorkelled that lazy river two or three times each and saw endless tropical fish and colourful coral. The water is simply the best we have ever seen, and we have snorkelled around the world. All of the islands are surrounded by a coral barrier reef, perhaps two kilometres offshore. The water within this barrier reef is very calm. We went to a couple of local art galleries and a couple of pearl farms. This area produces amazing black pearls very sought after by jewelers around the world. We were sad to say goodbye to the crew. We felt that we had made true friends, and we look forward to sailing with them again, perhaps in a different part of the world. After we got off the yacht at Bora Bora, we are at the Four Seasons Bora Bora in their world famous over water bungalows for 5 nights. It is everything you would expect from a tropical, world famous Four Seasons. This was a world class trip, made particularly memorable by the crew and the yacht JOY”.
March 11-18, 2023 - Huahine - Bora Bora / group of 6 from USA
Broker's report Exceeding expectations !!! Capt CJ and crew are absolutely fantastic! Already talking about booking another one next year!
Charter on June 10-17, 2023 in French Polynesia - A group of 8 from Arizona
We had an unbelievable time on this charter! The crew blew us away with their level of service. We just spoke with the rest of our charter group, and they are very excited to start planning for our next charter. CJ was a spectacular captain and we would like our next captain to have similar knowledge about diving and marine biology. The size of the catamaran was perfect during this charter. There are no words to describe how wonderful things went! We are at the Four Seasons in Bora Bora for a few days before we head home. We actually invited the crew to join us for drinks last night because they were so fantastic! Thanks, CJ, I wanted to reach out to thank you and the entire crew for a fantastic vacation. We have been pleased by all the 2 person crews of our 3 prior ~50-foot charters and expected the same, but you far exceeded our high expectations. There is no comparison to be made with the televised soap opera expectations. You have the perfect Captain demeanor; confident and in command, without being superior. Your passion for the sea and its creatures is clear and inspiring, adding to our sense of adventure. Lexi also could not be more perfectly charming, engaging, and helpful. The perfect steward. Luke and Danika too were both a total pleasure to be around and helpful in every way. Danika's culinary skills are world-class-delicious. Hoping to charter with you again and/or cross paths in the future. Please forward our thanks and contact info to the rest of the crew and let them know they are always welcome to stay with us in Old Town Scottsdale. Warmest regards,
Charter on September 9-16, 2023 / Huahine - Bora Bora / American group of 8
The vessel is fantastic. She’s clean, modern, spacious. 5/5. The crew is incredible. Captain CJ has just the right mix of ship commander and friend. Lexi was the consummate host. Luke was very professional. He’s a reserved guy and we loved getting him out of his shell. Danika’s food was 5 star. The presentation, variety, thoughtfulness…she blew us away.
Charter on Oct 18-25, 2023 in Papeete - Huahine / 8 American guests
Dear Joe, Georgie, Danika & Luke, Thanks you so very much for your professionalism, care, friendship and creativity over the course of our most spectacular trip !!!

Your delightful personalities made our trip extra special as we felt welcome, safe. Well done!!!

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.
