Happy New Year Everyone!!
Aiyana is again spending the winter in the Caribbean, based in the beautiful US Virgin Islands.
The crusing has been spectacular as usual in this part of the world and the charter schedule is busy too!
The other great news is we have succesfully launched and sea-trialled the second Alia 82 in Antalya. Like Aiyana, TWO as it has become affectionatly known is superb. The shipyard and all the contractors have done a great job and this boat is ready and available for the summer season in the Med. Please click the new yacht tab to get more details.
Aiyana is now back in the Med!
The crew recieved her off the ship in Palma de Mallorca after a 10 crossing from the Caribbean.
They then spent a few weeks in STP shipyard doing the annual service including anti-fouling and other mechanical maintanance, in preperation for a busy summer season.
Aiyana has three weeks of charter this summer as well as some cruising throughout Italy and France, prior to competing again in the Voile de St Tropez regatta. We will also be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show for a few days, so please get in contact with David Sampson to book a visit.
After a fabulous season in the Caribbean, Aiyana is preparing to return to the Mediterranean for another busy Summer.
During the winter, the boat took part in three regattas, including the prestigious BI Super yacht event in Virgin Gorda.
Aiyana finished a very credible 2nd overall, just behind the J-Class Yacht, Hanuman.
The other two events where the International Rolex Regatta, St Thomas and the BVI Spring Regatta which included two long races from Tortola to the beautiful Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda. Aiyana raced in both IRC and CHS handicap formats performing admirably, and was able to win most races over the line against some excellent competition!
