Joy | Lagoon 77
Finally I got the opportunity to view the much hyped Lagoon 77 and she did not disappoint!
Due to her being in popular demand, we started outside and went straight up onto her top deck. With the grill placed center and forward the helm station was off to the side with tables and chairs on the same side and large sofa sunbed on the rear, a covered area by a hardtop bimini.
Heading back downstairs and remaining outside we stood aft, the large dinghy was on a platform that lowers to launch it and can then be positioned to float on the water and use as a beach. Back under the top deck is the exterior dining, sun beds and sofa along the rear.
Going inside and into the saloon the interior dining table is on the left and sofa area on the right, further forward and in the center is a bar then forward left is the helm station and round the bar is more seating and a door to enter the forward deck. With a staircase on each side you venture down to the accommodation. The master cabin is vast, with sofa area, desk, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite.
The two double guest cabins are well appointed and a bunk cabin if there are more than 6 of you. Heading back up to the saloon we headed out the front door onto the deck. Another sofa and sofa sunbed with canvas sun awning and two large trampolines on the front.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a lunch invite but I know someone that did and their comments were ‘Joy produced my best meal of the week and I ate on some much larger yachts that didn’t compete.’ This goes to show that they’re a great crew as she is fully booked for the Caribbean and the next available weeks are through in the Pacific as they head towards New Zealand for the America’s Cup.
Joy was simply a joy!
You can visit her online brochure here.
Joy is available in the Pacific, sleeps up to 8 guests and has weekly rates of US$59,300 – US$64,200.
