This was our first family vacation on a boat and also in the BVI. Hands down everyone had a wonderful time. The boat was just perfect. We had a party of 8 that fit very comfortably. The awning upfront with the nets and chairs was just lovely. The cabins were spacious with compartments for everything. You can tell this boat was expertly custom built and appointed. It has a comfortable elegant feel. Sailing in the open water is almost like gliding. Awesome…

…Will, Nicole and Remi absolutely made the trip magical. Will made sure we were taken care of from the moment we left for the boat. He gave us detailed instructions on how to navigate from the airport to the taxi and boat ferry to get to the boat. When we arrived, he swept us away to a secluded cove and the adventure began. At the beginning, Will and crew discussed options for the week and most importantly they listened to our interests for the vacation. After that, they took us on a journey of a lifetime.

yacht description
Laysan has been specifically designed by her owner to be totally unique and amazingly fast. She captures the joy of exhilarating sailing whilst also managing to be one of the most luxurious yachts available for charter. At 72ft long and 34ft wide she provides a really stable platform so would be perfect for non sailors also.

Layout is four queen cabins and one twin berth cabin, all with en suite bathrooms and separate shower cubicles. The two aft cabins have slightly larger beds and the twin berths are bigger than usual so would be ok for single adults. The two forward beds have steps up to them.

The headroom on Laysan is really good with 7ft in the salon and 6ft 5" in the bedrooms, creating a very light and airy feel throughout. The décor compliments this effect with light wood and neutral colours. The galley is separate from the lounge area providing lots more space – room enough for indoor dining or maybe watching a movie.

On decks there is a great forward area that has shade and comfortable cushions – the best place to be at anchor benefitting from the cooling breezes and also be close enough to the water to spot a turtle or two. The cockpit is large and very relaxing with a super outdoor dining option plus two more settees; drop down screens give shade and protection from the elements. Laysan has a wide selection of water toys, plus onboard diving.

Why book Laysan – We always have said that it is THE CREW that will make your vacation fabulous and this is very much the case on Laysan.  Firstly, there are three crew aboard looking after your every need. Secondly, we have known this crew for quite a few years and they always go above and beyond ensuring their guests a holiday of a lifetime. Thirdly, they have a wonderful sense of humour – so, the perfect combination: you will be pampered, enjoy gourmet meals of your choice and laugh until your sides ache!

crew profile
Outstaind crew of 3 aboard BVI charter catamaran, LaysanWill 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...
