Family in search of...a cruising lifestyle

Family in search of … a cruising lifestyle!

Meet Jon, Beth & Joshua – a family in search of a cruising lifestyle.

After 21 years of marriage and career, Jon & Beth made the best decision of their life – and Joshua was born 9 months later on February 8, 2009, completing them as a family. Jon has produced and directed in film and television for 30 years and Beth is a California and US Supreme Court licensed attorney.

They are walking away from it all to give to their son what they have come to believe is the really important thing in life – a cruising life.

Jon & Beth began sailing together when they were just dating in the early 1980’s on a 14’ Hobie Cat in Central New South Wales, Australia – it could be that Jon was an avid sailor then, or he was just looking to get his girlfriend in a bikini, either way, they both fell in love – with each other and with sailing.

Now, Joshua is 3. Importantly, he is potty trained and a great swimmer. Part fish, part boy. And, Jon and Beth have their eye on a Lagoon 450 - Owner’s Version. But they don’t plan on putting any money down, now or in the future. They believe there is a different path for them to step on-board their Destiny.

Jon & Beth live a lifestyle of “giving and receiving.” They believe, and have a life full of experiences to back them up, that in order to receive in life, you have to give. In fact, if you want to receive a lot in life, you’ll need to give generously. And they do just that.

Now, they are willing to give someone else the opportunity to give – and give big. They understand it’s a big ask, but more importantly, they are quick to point out that whoever welcomes this giving opportunity will walk away with their “cup flowing over!”

It’s a principle they live by. … Sure, they could buy the boat but that would prevent the current owner from the blessing of giving and the added bonus-blessing of receiving – proportionately and overflowing – in return. With a serious face and a genuine heart Beth asks, “Why rob someone of their opportunity to be blessed in giving and then to receive their reward?”

So, if you are the owner of a Lagoon 450 - Owner’s Version, opportunity is knocking.

Specific and Intentional. That’s how Jon & Beth practice giving. They understand that if a farmer wants to harvest corn, he has to first plant corn seed. It’s the same with everything else in life. Jon and Beth’s “offer to receive” is best suited for someone who needs blessing in their family, blessing in their marriage, blessing in the ability to launch into a new chapter of life, or someone looking to be blessed in stepping into their Destiny – because that’s what investing a Lagoon 450 in Jon, Beth and Joshua, represents. Family, marriage, new chapters and destiny. Are you up for it? Contact them at DestinyLagoon450@gmail.com and open yourself up for one of life’s biggest blessings!

Not asking for much, are you? That's a half-mil "investment" you're talking about there...

BTW -- welcome to SailNet.

Re: Family in search of...a cruising lifestyle

Am I reading this correctly? You want someone to give you - just like that - a 45 foot catamaran? I read it twice. I didn't see where any money was changing hands. I don't even get what makes it an investment.

But, I guess, it doesn't hurt to try.

Re: Family in search of...a cruising lifestyle



"They understand it is a big ask" ? No shite Sherlock. Who would have thought it.

You know every now and then some turkey appears on this board, steps into the spotlight and like a kangaroo caught in the lights of a road train, just beg, plead, to be mowed down.

So have at it boys and girls. I suspect this thread will be gone by tomorrow but for now (within reason) its turkey season.

ps - anyone done a google search ? I wonder just how many boards have been blessed with these knobhead's "giving".

Re: Family in search of...a cruising lifestyle

Why is it that every few months, some sob story comes here asking for a free boat? And not just a half-sunk wreck, but a $500k cruising cat...

*sigh*...makes me fear for the future if these are the people I have to share the Earth with.
