Shayla is a purpose built day charter sailing catamaran, with a wide stable deck and a covered seating area for 30 passengers. It is primarily a sailing vessel, but also has two quite, low emission out-board engines for those really calm days. There are trampolines on the bow for lazing about in the sun, whilst the more adventurous can dive into the boom net off the stern for some extreme fun. Equipped with a galley, domestic toilets and even a BBQ, Shayla is well appointed with everything you need to sail in comfort and style.
