The Cuan Law was built in Canada by owner/designer Duncan Muirhead in 1988 and she and her sister ship Lammer Law in the Galapagos Islands are the world's largest trimarans. At 105 feet long on deck by 44 feet wide, her size and the trihull design provide extreme stability, both at anchor and underway.
There are ten double staterooms on board and each can be set up with a double bed or twins, side by side. Each stateroom has individually controllable air-conditioner, vents, windows, a skylight, and a private head and shower. There is stacks of storage space even for hard luggage and a 110V electric outlet.
The common facilities include a massive main salon with easy chairs and sofas, a wet bar with complimentary sodas and juices and a separate video lounge with library and projection facilities. The ship has full photo services with a resident photopro, film processing, video services and photo equipment rentals.
Dining is on the canopied aft deck and apres dive snacks are served daily. A competent and friendly crew of 7 includes at least two instructors and there is a large supply of up to date dive gear for rent that is renewed every year. For the non diver and divers seeking a break there are two Hobie Cats, three Ocean Kayaks, water skis, kneeboards and skurfers. There is also a great beach barbecue.
A pair of Caribe rigid inflatables with 85 HP Yamahas and proper angled boarding ladders handle most of the dives, shore expeditions and water skiing. You can climb down the two sturdy raps and be assisted aboard the tenders for the short ride to the dive site. Some of the dives take place directly from the Mother Ship. Her clever dive platforms and extended ladders are very convenient.
Tank racks and individual gear storage areas keep the dive deck from being cluttered and below deck, there are two air compressors efficiently pumping the 3,000 psi aluminum 80s. She sails alot with the good trade winds and her 5,000 sq. ft. of sail but when the wind dies she can do the speed of a power boat using her big twin Cats.
In addition, this impressive vessel offers three watermakers, four generators, a complete galley, workshop and an engineer skilled in fixing anything that might go wrong. Backups for backups and quality staff are great comforts on charters and Cuan Law has a good supply of each.
Diving in the British Virgin Islands exactly matches the pace and quality of life aboard Cuan Law - easy and excellent. Most of the dives are not deep or demanding, though for the more adventurous there are some more challenging dives among a selection of more than 100. The water temperature is above 80 F most of the year and the visibility is usually in the 60 to 120 foot range. Surface conditions are normally quite calm and strong currents are unusual.
