Comments First live-aboard experience and it was outstanding. Annie and Duncan Muirhead run an excellent show. The crew was great. A lot of fun plus intelligent conversation. Goumet level eating.

The Cuan Law is an incredible vessel. A 105' x 44' trimarand, real toilets (not marine heads) and showers in each of the ten large staterooms. Plenty of spaces for privacy. Beautiful boat under sail.

The diving is with the best in the Caribbean (have not dove Saba yet).

Definately would redo again.

The only downside is that it will be very difficult to do another live-aboard after the Cuan Law.
