Chartering in the Caribbean


Operating in the Caribbean

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.

Charter LAYSAN if you love to sail. This is a yacht built for fun. She can reach speeds of over 13 knots, which will make you feel as though you are flying over water! Watch the surf rush underneath the trampolines. Soak in the sun and salt air on luxurious sun pads. Immerse yourself in paradise.
