ISLAND HOPPIN’ – Dressed in grey and black uniform, pretty, thin, young Margaret and Captain Taylor, the experienced crew aboard the 52’ Lagoon catamaran, ISLAND HOPPIN’ greeted us with cold lavender-scented towels for our brow and trays of lamb chop hors d’oeuvres, Bloody Mary’s, muffins, and jugs of infused water with ice. As we sat in air conditioned comfort, the table before us was decorated with a fluorescent blue table runner, pleasing to the eye. Presenting me with a book of testimony, their guest book from last year, Margaret said proudly, “We did 23 weeks of charter last year.”
Now offering scuba diving, guests don’t need to be certified to dive from the yacht. Taylor and Margaret will teach you! They are dive instructors/dive masters. Margaret says, “We love being in the water; we love hunting fish, spear fishing. We have all the snares and slings to do that with onboard.”
With lounge to starboard and galley to port, ISLAND HOPPIN’s saloon, a 2018 model, opens to the shaded cockpit aft for indoor / outdoor living. Shaed by the fly bridge, the fly bridge, which is entirely filled in with fitted cushions has back rests that switch directions for catching the sun. Margaret said, “The Lagoon 52 is well laid out for charter.”
While three couples works best, the yacht accommodates up to eight guests in four staterooms. One is a bunk bed cabin, suitable for children. The crew utilizes the aft port cabin near the cockpit. “But we can swap our cabin for the bunk cabin, if guests need the double ” One guest double and the bunk bed cabin are to port; the master aft and the second guest Queen are to starboard. Nice cabins with mauve sheets, they all have color coordinated linens and towels, all new this year. Taylor, who showed me around, said, “We do turn down service. Margaret dims the lights, turns down the beds, lights a candle, and puts on oil diffusers.” The yacht provides reef friendly eco soaps and shampoos, made in Tortola. “Guests go home with bottles…. We will have rash guards and hats for sale, good quality,” Taylor said.
The master stateroom has Queen bed facing windows in the hull, a vanity, and bathroom aft. With shaggy pillow in gray on gray sheets with black throws, it shows how nice all the staterooms are. All the cabins are finished similarly, only slightly different, comfortable for guests.
Eager and enthusiastic, participating in the yacht hop, Taylor and Margaret are enthusiastic and love what they do. They come to ISLAND HOPPIN’ from the catamaran WHITE HOUSE, which they operated in the Virgin Islands previous years. Taylor reminds us how gorgeous the evenings are in the Caribbean, when the moon is full. “The trade winds blow, and the yacht tugs safely at her anchor. The moon creates a ribbon of light on the water, leading straight to you.”
