TABULA RASA – When we met Michael and Britney aboard the 57’ Lagoon catamaran TABULA RASA in St.Thomas in November, 2019, they offered us cold towels for our brow, water, lovely hors d’oeurvres, bellinis, coffees, trays of fruit, homemade yogurt cream parfaits in individual shot glasses, homemade croissant, and coconut rum muffins. This is their first year chartering in the Virgin Islands, but Britney was chef aboard a 98’ private yacht previously. She had come from the owner of that yacht’s home, and she had a chalkboard menu of Tabula Rasa’s drinks, displayed in the cockpit. Coffee and mimosas were on tap.
Michael had just seen to the yacht’s 2019 refit that summer. Built originally in 2006, all new underwater lights were replaced; all new sails given; the yacht got new canvas cockpit cushions; weather curtains in the cockpit were replaced that give shade; they upgraded the air conditioning in the saloon; a new watermaker keeps up with demand. “As long as we make water while anchored in harbors and not marinas, we’re all set,” Michael told me.
The galley is “down” on TABULA RASA, which leaves the entire saloon free for guests comfort, a feature I love. The full beam of the boat, there’s a lounge to port and dining table to starboard. “The new see-through weather curtains in the cockpit allow views from the saloon.” Michael said, a dive master. “I enjoy leading certified guests of all skill levels under the waves.”
The cockpit offers out of door dining and has a bar with ice maker, where we found water and jugs of juice. (Crews in the Virgin Islands have long stopped using individual plastic water bottles, because there is no recycling in the Caribbean. Not a single yacht offers plastic.)
TABULA RASA sleeps eight guests in four staterooms. Three have Queen berth; the fourth cabin is slightly larger but not quite a King. Fully air conditioned, each cabin has brand new linens, towels, and pillows, and the bathrooms are wet showers. That is to say, they do not have stall showers.
I remember during the 1980s when the first of these Lagoon 57s came out. They were state of the art then. The first catamarans to arrive, these Lagoons offering four equal cabins, each with double beds, spread out around the ship were ideal for couples charters. We brokers loved the indoor/outdoor concept, and they were air conditioned. Nowadays catamarans have been built up with fly bridges and have higher freeboard and more equipment. They are heavier motor sailers. But I love the simplicity of the 57s, the effectiveness, their performance sailing, their good bones. They offer it all – and space! – without the price, and TABULA RASA, built originally in 2006 is among the last of them out of many! They’re classics. The square, vertical windows surrounding the coach roof are a Lagoon design, showing all that it’s a Lagoon.
