Languages: English

Joe grew up in Auckland, New Zealand where his family had a small powerboat that he used to spend as much time as possible out on the ocean, primarily water skiing and fishing.
While completing a Civil Engineering degree Joe went on a sailing holiday to Croatia and accidently ended up with a job for the rest of the season. He spent the next few years trying to juggle a ‘normal’ job with getting away to sail as much as possible, before committing to sailing full time in 2018.
Since then, he has worked extensively in Greece, Croatia, Spain and the Caribbean, along with delivering yachts all over Europe and completing four trans-Atlantic crossings. Joe has over 30,000 sailing miles and holds his Yacht master Ocean certification.
Alongside sailing, Joe’s other love is endurance sport, and he has completed a number of marathons and Ironman triathlons.

CHEF: Danica NEL
South African

Danica comes from an active family all the way from Kwa Zulu, Natal, South Africa. She has a bubbly personality and is a social chef that loves to interact with clients to share her passion and her recipes. She loves to experiment with international cuisines ranging from Thai to Caribbean and Italian to everything in between, bringing her own unique flourish and finishing touches to each dish. Her passion for cuisine was born at a young age having been raised in a very culinary household in a Mediterranean family where food always formed the centrepiece of every day and where she was always surrounded by delicious smells and tasty morsels coming out of the kitchen.
After attending design school, Danica decided she wanted to spread her wings and combine her creativity with the culinary world in a career as a yacht chef. She trained at The Super Yacht Culinary Academy in Cape Town, followed by an internship under a Michelin star trained chef where she took her skills to the next level. She has since been sailing and cooking her way around the British Virgin Islands, where she perfected her charter chef game. After arriving in remote French Polynesia, Danica has enjoyed exploring the islands, adding some local recipes and ingredients to her vast repertoire along the way

Georgie was raised in the UK and grew up sailing on her family yacht, accompanied by dinghy sailing. She eventually ended up as an assistant dinghy instructor and spent a summer in Cape Cod as a camp sailing counsellor.
Since then, Georgie has worked a summer as a flotilla host (where she met Joe), a winter as a chalet sous chef, and the last two and a half years on Anna Pink as the chef/mate.
Although Georgie thoroughly enjoyed her time cooking aboard Anna Pink her primary interest has always been entertaining, and she jumped at the opportunity to take on the stew position on Joy.
Georgie is a keen photographer and videographer and will definitely be able to send you some lovely memories of your holiday.

Languages: English

Luke grew up on the East Coast of South Africa with a real passion for the ocean. He has loved surfing and free diving since he was a young boy, so being immersed in and under the water became part of his everyday life. After finishing school Luke went on to study law, but then decided a sailing career was what inspired him most, so he allowed the winds to blow him in a new direction and towards a life on the sea.
Luke’s first onboard job was as 1st Mate on a 72ft ketch cutter mono-hull that took him sailing around the East coast of Africa. After that adventure, he sailed the British Virgin Islands as a charter captain for four years, jumping between 49ft - 65ft sailing catamarans. He loved the experience so much and wanted to explore he more of the world, and what better place than on one of Lagoon’s flagship 77 foot sailing catamarans in French Polynesia.
As an active waterman, Luke loves introducing guests to enjoy a new adventure on board, whether its snorkelling, wakeboarding or banana boating!

Charter on September 9-16, 2023 / Huahine - Bora Bora / American group of 8
The vessel is fantastic. She’s clean, modern, spacious. 5/5. The crew is incredible.
Captain CJ has just the right mix of ship commander and friend.
Lexi was the consummate host.
Luke was very professional. He’s a reserved guy and we loved getting him out of his shell.
Danika’s food was 5 star. The presentation, variety, thoughtfulness…she blew us away.
Charter on June 10-17, 2023 in French Polynesia - A group of 8 from Arizona
We had an unbelievable time on this charter! The crew blew us away with their level of service.
We just spoke with the rest of our charter group, and they are very excited to start planning for our next charter.
CJ was a spectacular captain and we would like our next captain to have similar knowledge about diving and marine biology.
The size of the catamaran was perfect during this charter.
There are no words to describe how wonderful things went!
We are at the Four Seasons in Bora Bora for a few days before we head home.
We actually invited the crew to join us for drinks last night because they were so fantastic!

I wanted to reach out to thank you and the entire crew for a fantastic vacation.
We have been pleased by all the 2 person crews of our 3 prior ~50-foot charters and expected the same, but you far exceeded our high expectations. There is no comparison to be made with the televised soap opera expectations.
You have the perfect Captain demeanor; confident and in command, without being superior.
Your passion for the sea and its creatures is clear and inspiring, adding to our sense of adventure.

Lexi also could not be more perfectly charming, engaging, and helpful. The perfect steward.

Luke and Danika too were both a total pleasure to be around and helpful in every way. Danika's culinary skills are world-class-delicious.

Hoping to charter with you again and/or cross paths in the future.
Please forward our thanks and contact info to the rest of the crew and let them know they are always welcome to stay with us in Old Town Scottsdale.

Warmest regards,

March 11-18, 2023 - Huahine - Bora Bora / group of 6 from USA
Broker's report
Exceeding expectations !!!
Capt CJ and crew are absolutely fantastic!
Already talking about booking another one next year!
Charter on April 2-9, 2023 / French Polynesia / American family of 8
The crew of JOY were well beyond our expectations. Captain CJ, a friendly South African, and his lovely wife Lexi, a Brit from Yorkshire have been in these islands on JOY for 5 years and know these waters exceedingly well. Luke, also a fully qualified Captain, was the ship’s engineer and did a great job keeping us safe and his partner Danica was the chef. We provided a bit of a challenge with three kids and a few dietary restrictions from some of the passengers. The meals were served family style, and were absolutely wonderful. Luke and Danica were also from South Africa.
The yacht was spacious, incredibly well laid out, and was finished beautifully. We had not been on a catamaran before. My wife and I have been on perhaps 25 or more cruises, but the catamaran was a real treat for us. It was incredibly steady during some windy crossings.
The absolute highlight of the trip was snorkelling these warm crystal blue oceans. Captain CJ took us to spectacular locations, where we swam with black tipped reef sharks. They are from about 3 feet to 7 feet, and are curious, but seem to be harmless. They bumped our legs to see if we should be lunch, and they swam right up to us. It was a bit nerve wracking at first, but as we got used to them, it was an incredible experience. We swam with endless types of tropical fish. Sort of like snorkelling in your dentist’s aquarium. Safety was always paramount, and the crew took incredible care of us. No one ever rushed us, and CJ always explained in great detail prior to us leaving the catamaran what we were to expect.
Getting into, and out of tenders is always tricky, particularly for us at age 70, but they made it safe and effortless. We snorkelled most days in spectacular locations.
There was one narrow channel between two islands where there was a slow moving current, a sort of lazy river. We snorkelled that lazy river two or three times each and saw endless tropical fish and colourful coral. The water is simply the best we have ever seen, and we have snorkelled around the world. All of the islands are surrounded by a coral barrier reef, perhaps two kilometres offshore. The water within this barrier reef is very calm. We went to a couple of local art galleries and a couple of pearl farms. This area produces amazing black pearls very sought after by jewelers around the world.
We were sad to say goodbye to the crew. We felt that we had made true friends, and we look forward to sailing with them again, perhaps in a different part of the world. After we got off the yacht at Bora Bora, we are at the Four Seasons Bora Bora in their world famous over water bungalows for 5 nights. It is everything you would expect from a tropical, world famous Four Seasons.
This was a world class trip, made particularly memorable by the crew and the yacht JOY”.
Charter on April 29 - May 6, 2022 in the Tuamotu - American group of 8
We have been having a fantastic time!
Life doesn’t get any better than on the Joy

We can't thank you enough for helping us put this trip together..oh and we were able to swim above a male whale ...
It was amazing!
from the broker, W. Family Hawaii / May 31 – June 10, 2021, Hunahine – Bora Bora
"Sailing vessel JOY is very aptly named...she is a beautiful, comfortable, unforgettable, modern, catamaran.

The fantastic experience we were lucky enough to have in French Polynesia for 10 days was something our family will never forget.

JOY is well appointed with every amenity and all the ocean toys you could need.
The captain C.J. and crew Lexi & Jorge were exceptionally pleasant, engaging and very accommodating. They seemed to anticipate all of our needs and requests.
Chef Jen exceeded our expectations! Every meal was creative and delicious. We were constantly telling each other what a treat it was to have this level of proficiency in our young chef! (and we are a family of restaurants and wine producers...not an easy bunch to surprise.)
Overall, we whole heartedly recommend this trip and this boat and crew to everyone!!

The W. Family, Maui, Hawaii"

Thank you both for all your assistance with the last two charters on JOY. Both clients had excellent experiences and we look forward to sending many more charters to CJ and his crew on JOY.
Charter November 5 - 14, 2020 Rangiroa - Tikehau / 2 Americans

One month charter on JOY - Rangiroa to Bora Bora - Aug.-Sept. 2019
This has been the most remarkable vacation - a month on a boat with an unknown crew - and for the crew unknown guests, was a step in the dark - it has proved to be one of the best decisions of our lives. Four weeks on a very special boat, crewed by four very special people has been a JOY and a privilege. CJ’s sailing skills took us to perfect locations at every stage - avoiding “bombies” all the way. Every member of the crew has contributed significantly to our enJOYment - never an empty glass and such quality and variety of meals that deserve Michelin stars.

CJ’s knowledge of the likely locations of the different areas to view, from tiny fish to 4 metre manta rays is uncanny! We have had the most memorable sightings of whales, manta, sting and eagle rays as well as dolphins off the bow and sharks swimming around us. I don’t possess adequate superlatives in wishing to say a huge thanks to CJ, Lexi, Fabiana and Pablo - you have all been stars and made our dream a reality. From our hearts, thank you all.
