Nicholson Yachts’ Newest Catamaran Scheduled to Arrive in Finike, Turkey June 14
Sailing yacht Laysan, the beautiful newly built 72ft catamaran is arriving in Finike, Turkey this month. Laysan was built at Serenity Shipyard, a boat building and design group specializing in catamarans and multihulls located in Pattaya, Thailand. Owner, Scott Nunnery, who was involved in every aspect of the building of Laysan, chose Serenity Shipyard because of the great expertise and very specific skill set for creating unique, beautiful and seaworthy multihulls. The process to design and build Laysan took over two years. Meticulous attention was paid to every detail to create the boat Scott had envisioned, modern and spacious as well as a solid seaworthy vessel. Scott collaborated heavily with the builders at the shipyard, visiting the yard for a month every three months during the two year building and design process. He was involved in running rigging to choosing where lights and switches were placed, even designing some of the systems on board.
Scott Nunnery’s past and experience in the world of yachting heavily influenced his vision and design for Laysan. He boats 17 years of sailing experience from race boats to super yachts, and initially began his yachting career on sizable monohulls ranging from 70’ racers up 165’ luxury yachts. His first experience with catamarans was a delivery from New England to Tortola on board a modern 60’. Scott immediately fell in love with catamarans, their outstanding seaworthiness allowing them to sail fast while also maintaining a smooth and flat ride. The boat was very spacious and comfortable and its low draft allowed for them to cruise and anchor in just 5’ of water off of the shore. Scott concluded that all of these aspects made catamarans the ideal charter boat, a perfect middle ground between monohulls and motor yachts. Catamarans offer great sailing performance as well as comfort, space and luxury, combining both form and function. Laysan is the culmination of all of Scott Nunnery’s extensive sailing experiences. The complex engineering and systems work synergistically while the simplicity of the layout and design to create the impeccable Lasysan. Her launch is highly anticipated so that people may experience this new idea of elegance and function.
