• Four additional vessels to arrive in Lanzarote over the coming weeks
• Lava branches out into multihulls for the first time
Managing the largest full-time fleet in the Canaries, Lava Charter has become synonymous with a good, personable service and well-maintained sailing yachts. Success over the last couple of years recently lead to the decision to expand the range of options for customers.
Joining the fleet on a permanent basis then will be two spacious Jeanneau yachts: brand-new 479 and 519 Sun Odysseys. Beyond being fully-equipped, sailing enthusiasts will enjoy a fully battened three-reef mainsail, carbon wheels on the helm and plenty of head-space under the sprayhood – which has extra big windows for better visibility. Quality Harken blocks and winches offer peace of mind and there’s a roomy bow locker for storing fenders, lines and bags. Below deck, there’s a nav. station for the skipper, a display showing energy use, 230v access for charging cameras and mobiles etc. under power (and even limited time under sail), well-placed handlebars for safe transitioning and comfortable mattresses to ensure a good night’s rest!
Furthermore, two additional yachts will spend a winter in Lanzarote, one of which is a Lagoon 450 S, where in response to customer requests, Lava will be trialling a multihull for the first time.
In terms of cruising options, Lanzarote offers beautiful anchorages, arguably the archipelago’s best marinas and a perfect week-long itinerary around the island. Stopovers are varied and generally include the chance to spend a night in one of the largest marine reserves in Europe. La Graciosa’s fishing port and Arrecife’s bustling capital also offer a delightfully authentic introduction to the local culture.
