Yacht Description

Imagine vacationing on your own private luxury yacht. The itinerary and pace are entirely up to you. Sail, scuba dive, swim, snorkel, windsurf, kayak, hike through a rainforest. Or just relax and unwind, explore tranquil anchorages, enjoy a leisurely cruise, sip cocktails at sunset, catch a glimpse of a shooting star. Do it all….or nothing at all!

Our professional crew will serve as your guides to the most exotic island destinations, the best dive sites, private secluded coves, and favorite night spots. Let them pamper you with fun filled activities, exquisite gourmet cuisine, and first-class professional service.

This sleek, high performance catamaran is capable of exceeding 10-12 knots under sail. Offering more room than most 70 ft. mono hulls, the expansive cockpit and spacious salon provide the perfect interplay for social gathering and informal dining. The yacht is fully air conditioned with independent controls in each stateroom for maximum comfort. The four private staterooms, each with ensuite shower and head, accommodate up to eight guests. Three queen berths and bunk room are suitable for couples, families with children, or singles. Crew quarters are forward with a separate deck entrance, head & shower. There are two additional hot and cold water transom showers on the aft deck.
Children are Welcome over the age of 12 years

Crew

Captain and Crew of Adastra, a 57ft Lagoon Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Captain: Michael Lang from USA

Michael and Jennifer’s love for sailing began off the Southern Coast of California. They spent their summer vacations at Catalina Island, which consisted of ocean kayak camping in remote coves until a fate full summer where Michael took ASA courses to allow them to bareboat charter. Since then they have done whatever they could to get onto yachts, which later lead to Michael becoming a captain through the USCG. Jennifer and Michael have been married for 10 years and find themselves happiest when their experience can be shared with others. Their hobbies and interests are naturally linked to the outdoors. Some of their most favored pursuits are backpacking, fishing, clamming, snowboarding, surfing, brewing beer/cider/mead, scuba diving, boatbuilding, free diving, and spearfishing. They also remodeled a 1955 Ranch in Portland for 10 years from the ground up without help from contractors, which they sold to herald in this new venture aboard AdAstra.

They took on the largest challenge of their lives when they decided to build their own 45ft Blue Water Catamaran. Their yacht the Anomalous is currently a motor vessel on a slip in Portland Oregon. It is a work in progress where they do all the work themselves, everything from composites to installing diesel engines, electrical systems and all other boatbuilding fodder. In the off season outside of operating AdAstra they plan to complete their yacht over the next four years. The rest is an untold story that must unfold itself.
Jennifer is from beautiful Pacific Northwest near Portland Oregon. She grew up camping, hiking, boating, skiing, and fishing throughout Oregon.

Jennifer decided to pursue a career as a chef and earned a degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland, Oregon. During her schooling she traveled to Paris, France where she honed her skills and developed a passion for patisserie. The following six years were spent working as an Executive Pastry Chef. Driven toward providing care for others she altered her course and attended Portland State University for five years studying to become a nurse. While at university she worked as a personal chef and professional nanny for several years. Now as the Chef on AdAstra she is excited to be back at her roots allowing her first passion to shine through.
Her love for cooking extends beyond casual affairs. She strives to provide quality food by cooking from scratch, using fresh/local ingredients. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to food allergies (gluten, soy, egg, nuts, dairy, etc.), as she has many of them herself. Jennifer knows all too well what it’s like to vacation and not be able to indulge at unfamiliar restaurants and places. She will provide a “safe haven” for those with allergies or other dietary restrictions. Onboard AdAstra she has an ice cream maker and will provide fresh gourmet gelatos and sorbets. The galley also is equipped with a Vita-mix to deliver a wonderfully refreshing smoothie menu.

Michael is originally from the Bay Area outside San Francisco California. His land-based career was spent in Renewable power working for a Wind Turbine Manufacturer. He joined the company at age eighteen and left the corporate world at age thirty-three. In that span of fifteen years he has climbed the corporate mountain, rolled down it, dusted him self off and weathered storms. He is predominately an engineer at heart. His mainline passion is to explore and push his personal limits to new boundaries.
They are pursuing their dreams aboard AdAstra and are delighted to be your ambassadors to the Caribbean.

8. Additional comments on your charter?
2nd charter with AdAstra and her crew (previously in the BVI’s). As the first time, boat was clean and well maintained and the crew extremely pleasant, fun-loving, and accommodating. Food was fantastic. Very much a plus for our group to have a dive compressor and dive gear on board. Would definitely charter with this crew again.
