Ripple is a 2016 Lagoon 620 catamaran featuring Lagoon's stylish upgraded Essence decor. The reputation of this yacht as the pinnacle of style and luxury is well earned. If you are looking to expand your horizons, and explore the world in ways you never thought possible, then welcome to the experience of comfort and class that is Ripple. Ripple has been designed for socializing with seemingly endless space both above and below deck. This yacht shows why it is the gold standard for enhancing the guest experience. With multiple dining, living, sunbathing and lounge areas to choose from, you will always have the space to sneak away for some shade or to read a book.... or you can choose to be as involved as you desire. As a larger catamaran, you can count on comfort at sea, and second-to-none sailing performance during your stay on Ripple. The salon is extremely spacious, thanks to well thought out style and intelligent design with vertical windows ensuring all are able to enjoy the beautiful scenery from the salon. There is a u-shaped sofa for lounging and two adjustable tables that can be used as coffee tables or a dining table accommodating all guests comfortably. Ripple hosts up to 8 guests in four queen-sized, air- conditioned cabins. Each cabin has its own, private en- suite bathroom with a separate shower. The master suite is elegant and roomy with great stowage, a desk, small sitting area and its large ensuite bathroom. It too has a cockpit entryway allowing easy access to the cockpit area directly from the cabin. Her exteriors are just as impressive; you can relax on the perfectly configured deck spaces that are equipped with areas for socialising without sacrificing privacy. There is no better way to revel under the Caribbean sun. The flybridge is home to a huge, comfortable and sleek sofa and additional bench seat. It is the key space to enjoy the beautiful views, gorgeous sunsets, and witness the amazing milky way. You will find yourself living in the space the majority of the time while underway. The boat is fully equipped with snorkeling and scuba diving gear and an abundance of water toys. After an adventure filled day of water sports, swimming, diving, or on-shore excursions, enjoy the well-lit and large cockpit dining area as you enjoy a world class meal with your friends and family. Enjoy a handmade cocktail prepared just for you by your professional crew right there at the cockpit bar. Top-tier service is central to life onboard Ripple, and only adds to the exclusive feel of this impressive experience. You will know the meaning of peace, relaxation and class when you charter with us on Ripple. Swimming in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean you'll wonder why you never did this sooner.

Captain Roland and Chef/ First Mate Vanessa, both vibrant and energetic, hail from Cape Town, South Africa. Roland and Vanessa met when in their 20´s and were married in February 2010.

Previously, Captain Roland worked in the corporate environment, ending at the pinnacle of his successful career managing his own business servicing the dental and medical industry. From being a Sea Scout in his youth then followed his passion for the sea by obtaining his RYA Yacht Master Offshore – subsequently receiving his RYA Yacht Master Ocean certification. Roland has delivered yachts professionally, doing numerous trans-Atlantic crossings (amongst others) accumulating in excess of 100 000 Nautical Miles. The majority of these deliveries were for the TUI group (Moorings/Sunsail)

Roland’s first transatlantic blue water passage in 2004 brought him to the shores of the Caribbean. It was during one of those yacht deliveries in 2005 that Roland came across Tradewinds Cruise Club and worked as a Charter Captain managing a Privilege 48 Ft catamaran in and around the Caribbean windward islands, operating primarily out of Jolly Harbour in Antigua, going on to work with Vanessa on numerous and larger catamarans for Tradewinds Cruise Club in 2012 and then into the private sector in 2013. His other passions include kite surfing, cycling, scuba diving, free diving and fishing.

Relief Captain
Hugh White grew up in Pretoria, South Africa spending weekends at the local lake where his passion for sailing and water sports started as a youth. After graduation Hugh went straight into yachting and completed a Mediterranean season in France where his passion for the yachting industry grew. Followed by a 12,000 nautical mile delivery which included two Atlantic crossings and sailing up the east coast of Africa Hugh’s enthusiasm for sailing, fishing and diving only increased. Hugh then joined Callista in the Caribbean as the deck/stew where he sailed with Roland and Vanessa for two years learning the ropes of a charter captain. Hugh is an eager diver and always keen for an adventure!


Vanessa holds a diploma in fashion design but soon discovered that the hospitality industry is where her passion lies. For years a deli and coffee shop owner in the heart of prestigious London-Marylebone Lane- and prior to that, spent many years in the restaurant industry all over the world, from South Africa to Honduras to Europe. Having worked in the food and hospitality industry for so many years ensures without a doubt that your expectations will be exceeded. The guest book is testament to Vanessa’s great skills in the galley. Her creative flair and ability to cater to challenging dietary requirements is nothing short of incredible. Vanessa tends to lean towards a very healthy al fresco style preparation. (Roland is kept very busy on the grill!)

In 2010 Roland and Vanessa decided to put their individual skill sets together. They sold their respective businesses and embarked on a plan to work on yachts full time. They contacted Tradewinds Cruise Club with whom Roland has had a long standing relationship. The rest as they say is history.
Both growing up in South Africa has taught Vanessa and Roland to appreciate and indulge in numerous outdoor activities, whether it be hiking, skiing, river rafting , kayaking or scuba diving to name a few.

Vanessa and Roland are both qualified PADI Rescue Diver’s. Roland is also a qualified PADI OPEN WATER INSTRUCTOR and offers Discover Scuba Diving for non certified divers onboard SV CALLISTA ! Their guests can be sure they are in very safe hands ! There is NO certification after a DSD course.
In addition Roland is an instructor in wreck, deep, navigation, drift, Fish ID , nitrox scuba diving specialities.
Vanessa is a trained ASHTANGA yoga instructor and has added Powerboat Level 2 to her qualifications.

The flavour of Roland and Vanessa’s charters lends itself towards getting off the beaten track, finding paths less travelled but also feel very comfortable offering an itinerary which includes lively beach bars and popular locations. They are open to lifestyle charters of more than one week thereby allowing the freedom to island hop.

The grill is utilized a lot, providing a healthy outdoor style of food preparation and still managing to retain a feeling of luxury.

Roland is a South African citizen and Vanessa carries both British and South African citizenship. Their home language is English however speak fluent Afrikaans. Both are non-smokers.

Being extremely service orientated, Roland and Vanessa feel very strongly that to provide a high level of service, responsiveness and speed a crew of 3 is best.
