Interior designed by Radyca, large floor-to-ceiling windows frame the surrounding vistas, while naval architecture by Van Oossanen adds speed and efficiency to the onboard experience. Celebrating volume and space, prioritising privacy and guaranteeing comfort for 12 guests, including families, friends and couples, Laurentia is a top tier example of how to marry modern amenities with class and creative vision.

On Board

Films. Fitness. And Food

On Board

Starlit Movie Magic

Spend your days on the water, and your nights on Laurentia’s main deck aft with a star-studded encounter at the outdoor cinema. Effortlessly transitioning from a lounge area with sofas to an al fresco silver screen, you can cosy up to all your favourite films under a blanket of stars, night after night.

Working Out on the Go

Few gyms compete with the possibility of a waterside workout. When the yacht’s at anchor, take to the beach club with a large range of exercise equipment to sweat it out before cooling off in the sea. When the yacht’s underway, a gentle sea breeze on the sun deck makes for a welcome fitness companion.

Outdoor Areas for Dining and Doing

A dizzying array of outdoor deck space makes deciding where to chill the toughest job of all. Dine al fresco on the upper deck aft. Take to the Jacuzzi with a cool lime spritzer on the oversized sun deck. Or enjoy some down time on the Portuguese bridge seating area. When it’s time to pair up relaxation with a refreshing dip, Laurentia’s beach club delivers in spades.


Room for One and All


An Orchestra of Offerings


Qualified Diving Instructor

Step aboard into the safest of hands. Taking the helm is a captain who doubles up as a qualified diving instructor. Captain Steve Dart has many strings to his instructor bow, including the bonus of being a qualified primary school teacher, all while running a tight knit and highly skilled crew of 13.


Cooking Counts

Trained at Le cordon Bleu in Paris, and with a stint perfecting her Thai cuisine while volunteering at the Miami Buddhist temple, Laurentia’s head chef specialises in Provencal, Mediterranean and Thai cuisine, with a little baking and pastry thrown in for good measure. Accompanied by a highly competent sous chef, guests’ taste buds are spoiled for choice, all day, every day.

Learn and Play

As an approved RYA training centre for personal watercraft, guests aboard Laurentia can dip their tow into watersports for the very first time in the company of qualified crew, or even rise to the lofty ranks of becoming an instructor themselves. The opportunities are there for the taking.


Any Toy. Any Shore. Any Day.

A boat with children and enjoyment in mind, Laurentia’s toy collection spans the gamut of entertainment, from the speedy jet skis, wakeboards, SeaBobs and towables to the more leisurely paddle boards and kayaks. There’s even kids’ sand and beach toys for desert island excursions, an anti-jellyfish sea pool and board games when the wet weather sets in. For the truly adventurous, the yacht’s three tenders include a 6m Castoldi with a landing craft bow and a 12m Intrepid Nomad for all-out capability.


The Guarantee of Quality


Experience First

Equipped with zero speed stabilisers to reduce roll and benefiting from the precision of Dutch quality, Laurentia sports Heesen’s pioneering Fast Displacement Hull Form, designed by Van Oossanen, for slicing through waves like a hot knife through butter. Reaching top speeds of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots, Laurentia is an exciting bluewater cruiser with 4,500 nautical mile range.
