We are delighted to offer “Hawnalea” as the Day Charter member of the Miramar Sailing fleet. She is a Ted Brewer designed 47ft. Classic Ketch with ample cockpit and deck space for up to 12 guests. She will carry you safely and comfortably on your Day Sail in Antigua. Even the least adventurous of seafarers will not fail to be comfortable and content aboard this superb cruising yacht.

At 47’ long, 13’ wide with a draft of 7, she offers exciting and fast sailing with sufficiently shallow draft to manoeuvre close in to Antigua’s coral reefs.

She has 2 double cabins, with 2 heads, to provide our guests with private facilities for changing before and after water activities. There is also a fresh water shower on the transom.

For the "sun worshippers" among you there is ample deck space for comfortable relaxation and "ray gathering" while sailing. For those who prefer the shade, all seating in the cockpit is covered by a large, full width bimini and spray dodger. Antigua is in paradise but thankfully we get a little rain once in a while!

For your lunch there is the option of a buffet lunch laid out on board or ashore at a local beach side restaurant. There is also a large barbeque unit on the transom for the occasional grilled fresh fish treat!

Her powerful diesel engine completes the specification of this superb yacht that is guaranteed to uphold our promise of “Miramar Made My Day”.
