Step aboard sailing catamaran LAYSAN and you will be immediately impressed by the beauty of the design, immense amount of living space and pervasive atmosphere of calm. But there’s so much more than meets the eye.

LAYSAN was designed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design, one of the world’s leading yacht design studios, with input from the Owner, himself a superyacht captain. This collaboration produced an extraordinary performance vessel. From cutting-edge hull design to high-tech, efficient engineering systems, to sophisticated styling, both interior and exterior, LAYSAN is in a class of her own.

LAYSAN has a layout with social spaces that are designed to accommodate large parties. The yacht is an excellent option for groups of friends and extended families keen to share the yachting adventure without ever feeling cramped. The innovative design allows for flexibility, being together, or finding an intimate space.

Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for LAYSAN
Captain: Willem Knoetze (43)
Captain: Willem Knoetze

Will Knoetze is a Captain that is very easy to warm up to. He has an endearing smile, an infectious laugh, and guests know right away they are in very capable hands. His in-water experience began as a child growing up in South Africa: going fishing, building rafts, and playing pirate games in the rivers and lakes around the family farm with his brother and sisters. As an expert seaman, scuba diver, and amateur treasure hunter, his playful pirate spirit still runs deep. Will’s tight-knit family, most especially his uncle, inspired his love of the ocean. He says, “Despite having a great job in the IT industry, I had to leave to follow my passion for sailing. Since I was young I loved the ocean above and below the surface. The oceans kept on pulling so I jumped (in) at the opportunity and found my calling in life.” He is also a history buff, and snorkeling, spear fishing and underwater photography enthusiast. Fellow enthusiasts aboard Laysan can anticipate some truly memorable experiences.

Will holds a Yachtmaster Ocean 200-ton commercial captain license with power and sail endorsements and has captained many charter yachts throughout the Caribbean including St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Panama, Grand Turk and the Bahamas. He says, “Laysan is a special catamaran, she has style and charm, spacious accommodations, fantastic deck space, loads of toys, and a super friendly, knowledgeable crew dedicated to memorable moments and unforgettable holidays for guests.” That all adds up to one fabulous charter!

Ever since Remi can remember he has been on or under the water, surfing, sailing, free-diving, spearfishing, and scuba diving. He says, “I was lucky enough to attend a school that offered sailing as a sport. I started sailing on small optimists, then lasers, L26, L36. As I grew bigger, so did the boats I learned to sail. Last year I attended the Cannes Royal sailing regatta in France. We sailed on a 59m Schooner, which was awesome!”

Being close to nature, Remi developed a strong belief environmental conservation and protection. He earned a Bachelor Degree of Social Science in Geography and Environmental Management.
