A New Launch in September 2010
AVALON 62 ft. Lagoon Catamaran
~ Captain: Paul Johnson - Chef / Hostess: Melissa Murphy ~
A new launch for September, 2010, AVALON represents the latest achievement in charter catamaran design from Lagoon.
5 spacious queen-berth guest suites, all ensuite, an open and airy saloon with a nearly 360 degree view, and a wide flybridge all come together to create floating elegance, style, and utility.
If you are in need of some time in Paradise then Paul and Melissa can take you there on AVALON. An experienced and charming couple with whom you can feel comfortable and relaxed and who delight in ensuring their guests have the vacation of a lifetime.
Paul is from Greater Manchester, UK, and has been sailing since the age of four. He was brought up dinghy sailing and
successfully campaigned many highly competitive seasons in dinghy classes. He has also raced in several offshore races and completed yacht deliveries in the Irish Sea, North Sea, Caribbean Sea, and Trans-Atlantic. With such a love of the sea it was only natural that Paul wanted to add the qualifications to match his experience and established his career as a charter yacht captain.
For two years Paul studied Watersports Activity Leadership at College at Falmouth Marine School. He is a Commercially Endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore as well as an RYA Senior Dinghy Instructor, RNLI trained beach lifeguard and a PADI open water diver. Paul enjoys windsurfing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and saltwater fishing. When sailing in open water, Paul always encourages his guests to catch a Tuna or Mahi Mahi for Melissa to create wonderfully fresh meals.
Melissa is from Cheshire, UK and was also brought up sailing dinghies from a young age. She has always enjoyed entertaining and gained her formal culinary training at the Rosie Davies Cookery School. Modern European and Asian style dishes are a specialty, but all of Melissa’s menus are tailored to her guests’ specific preferences and are created with a health conscious ethos. You will feel just as safe with Melissa at the helm as Paul. Melissa is also a Commercially Endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore, an RYA Dinghy Instructor, RYA Powerboat Instructor and PADI open water diver.
When she’s not reading gastro magazines or experimenting with new recipes, Melissa enjoys all watersports, photography and horse riding.
Paul and Melissa both love children and welcome families onboard. Paul is happy to entertain the children with beach games and fun packed days in and on the water. And coming from a large family he has plenty of experience! Meanwhile Melissa will more than happily cater to the children’s tastes so that they too have a vacation to remember.
Together Paul and Melissa will make sure you enjoy your vacation on AVALON at your own pace. Either action packed and on the go, or if you prefer moving to the beat of a slower drum, Paul will happily make you one of his mouth watering cocktails while you indulge in reading a good book. However you want to spend your vacation, Paul and Melissa look forward to welcoming you onboard AVALON and showing you Paradise.
