Yacht Description

SHANGRI LA is the perfect luxury hideaway on the water, suited for everybody who appreciates modern sophistication. The crew/owners of the original Shangri La, a Lagoon 42, were very successful in the charter business the last 4 years, so they decided to upgrade to larger, brand new Lagoon, the 52 Flybridge. Same professional crew, same excellent service and food, same concept, but on a big new state-of-the-art yacht, available for charter starting December 2016.

Start your morning in a romantic secluded bay, dive in and snorkel the remarkable underwater world, have an exhilarating day sail, lay back and relax and enjoy your first class dinner together with a breathtaking sunset.
Guests are welcome to enjoy, relax and unwind on the spacious yacht, roomy enough to find privacy on the seating area of the foredecks, the large trampolines, the wide and open flybridge, but also for bigger groups to come together for al fresco dining in the wide and shady cockpit.

Shangri La accommodates maximum 8 guests in 4 guest cabins: one deluxe cabin, with queen-size bed, big lockers, ensuite head and shower and a separate entrance from the cockpit, two spacious premium cabins with queen-size beds and ensuite bathroom, and one cabin with single sized bunk beds and ensuite bathroom. Fixed hull windows allow natural lighting in every cabin together with wide deck hatches, which also provide excellent ventilation. In addition all cabins have fans and private A/C controls. The modern and elegant salon offers wide, panoramic windows allowing natural light to flood throughout, an elegant lounge area with TV and music system as well as the well-equipped galley.

One of the most popular spots on Shangri La is the flybridge. Not only the helm station is located there but also a canvas topped lounge and sunbathing area. Here the famous Shangri La Sundowner cocktail is served. For exhilarating action besides sailing, there is a wide assortment of toys including stand up paddleboards, floats, the Shangri La Pool Bar, and snorkel and fishing gear.

Captain Bernd and Chef Daniela are eager to welcome you aboard for the vacation of a lifetime!
This husband and wife team are both originally from Austria, and Daniela’s cooking will definitely tempt you with some fabulous Austrian specialties. Both are highly experienced and work in the charter business for more than 14 years, no wonder that many of their guests are repeated clients that love and appreciate this professional, enthusiastic and dedicated couple.
Bernd is a dedicated yacht captain and sailor since he turned 18. He sailed extensively in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, US Coast and Bahamas and optimizes your perfect vacation with lots of local knowledge. He loves to share his passion for sailing, water and nature with all guests as well as his passion of creating tasteful cocktails. Daniela, the perfect first mate and chef, loves to make her guests feel healthy and happy. Her passion and love for food and service paired with Austrian culinary training, makes her the amazing chef she is. She is energetic and enthusiastic, loves sailing, hiking, snorkeling, dancing kids and yoga. This team will turn your sailing vacation to an extraordinary unforgettable lifetime experience!

SHANGRI LA truly delivers the experience consistent with her name, a beautiful place where life approaches perfection!
