SY “Lauran” / former Galatea is a steel, world-cruising luxurious sailing yacht with a high degree of comfort, able to voyage without restrictions accommodating up to six guests plus crew.
Ketch rigged and fitted with hydraulic furling headsails and in-mast reefing on mizzen & fully button lazy-jack system on the main mast; she is easily handled by a crew of three.
A “Hundested” variable-pitch propeller, driven by a single 441 kW MAN diesel, is intended to reduce hydrodynamic drag, while “Lewmar” bow and stern thrusters provide superior manoeuvrability.
Her “Nirvana” aluminium masts carry 483 m2 sail area, which is nearly doubled by the use of a “Genaker” flown from the bowsprit.
Double helm positions, steering wheel in the aft cockpit and joystick control in the pilothouse.
The yacht interior is in classic mahogany and white panelling woodwork, a combination that creates an intense, antique atmosphere, crafted to very high quality by the yard joinery.
