Yacht Description

Tell Us Your Dreams…and We’ll Make Them Our Priorities
Welcome aboard Priorities, a 57’ Lagoon catamaran based out of the picturesque British Virgin Islands. We invite you to come aboard, soak up the warm Caribbean sun, enjoy gourmet meals, and bask in the luxury of our recently refitted floating resort.

Captain Richard Cassarino and First Mate Lisa Pratt will charter the cruise of your dreams based upon your wishes. Want to island hop and hit all the hotspots? We’ll get you there in style. Lay around on a deserted beach or go snorkeling, diving around old wrecks and exploring reefs. We’ll cater to your every whim. Priorities offers charters for groups of two to eight people. Our seven-day voyages are fully customizable – we’ll work up an itinerary with as much or as little of your input as you want.

Spend your time helping sail Priorities, or just relax and take in the scenery while we do the work. Fill your days with water sports, hikes or dives. Capt. Cassarino, a chef with 20 years’ fine dining experience, will prepare gourmet meals for our guests at the close of yet another perfect Caribbean day.

Priorities features four staterooms each with en suite head and shower. 3 suites include queen beds, while 1 suite features 2 twin bunks to accommodate everyone in the family. Priorities measures 57ft. with a 30ft. beam offering plenty of room to relax and have fun both above and below the deck.

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

Crew Profile

Rich and Lisa
We enthusiastically welcome you aboard and invite you to share in our love of great sailing, great food, great wine and, of course, the Caribbean Sea.

Captain/chef Richard Cassarino and First Mate Lisa Pratt, have more than 30 years’ combined sailing experience. We spent years trying to make room for sailing in our busy professional lives in Providence, Rhode Island. One New England winter too many convinced us to make our passion for sailing our “priority.

Rich, a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, owned and operated Cassarino’s Ristorante in Providence’s “Little Italy” for 20 years. The restaurant is consistently rated the “Best Italian Restaurant in Providence.” He now brings his superior cooking and entertaining skills to the high seas. Each meal served aboard PRIORITIES will be tailored to your tastes, from breakfast to scrumptious multi-course dinners.

Lisa, an accomplished florist and art/design degree holder, owned and operated a successful, high-volume flower shop in Providence, Floral Designs By LiRog. She has 20 years experience with event and party planning.

Reggie, PRIORITIES’ mascot, has 56 years’ experience sailing (Dog Years). He is an adorable, unobtrusive and lovable golden retriever. We’re working on training him to fetch cocktails.

We are thrilled to join our passion for sailing with our business experience to move into a more personalized sector of the service industry. We are a relaxed, humorous couple who like to enjoy ourselves as much as you do. Welcome aboard.

Hi Patty:

We just got home a few minutes ago and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had aboard PRIORITIES.

Rich and Lisa were terrific in looking after all our needs. The boat is beautiful and extremely well maintained with lots of toys, music, movies, games, etc.. Rich and Lisa balanced out our days with a lot of activities, great stops, interesting information and down time. Rich is an amazing cook and each meal was prepared with loving attention to every detail and to everyone’s individual preferences. They were always looking after us, which made the trip relaxing and fun-filled at the same time.

It truly was an amazing family vacation – one that we will treasure for many years to come.

Ron, Marian and Family
