Based on a steel hull, Laurel was built with a composite superstructure and features both an exterior and interior design by Donald Starkey. On board, she accommodates up to 12 guests across seven luxurious staterooms, comprising five doubles, one twin stateroom and one convertible cabin. A true global voyager, Laurel changed hands in 2013 but retained her original name since launch. Here she is seen in the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas.
