Welcome to the Ayacanora

Welcome aboard the 72 foot sailing vessel Ayacanora! Built over a three year period and launched in 1981, the Ayacanora is named for the beautiful and willful heroine of the Charles Kingsley classic "Westward Ho!" She is a luxury charter yacht that operates in the Caribbean between the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

The main salon is furnished in the style of a period home and provides a comfortable living area for entertaining. The spacious dining area can accommodates eight guests around a mirror polished mahogany oval table with gimbaled centerpiece. A beautiful mahogany staircase from the pilot house provides easy access to the salon.

Ayacanora completed her 2009 refit and is now offering two equal cabins. Each cabin has a queen bed and pima cotton sheets, couch, dresser, closet, ensuite bathroom and shower,granite counter tops, custom hand painted sink and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. She won BEST OF SHOW at the 2009 British Virgin Islands boat show!

Chartering Ayacanora is still a very affordable tropical vacation! Daily rates start as low as $430 per person per day and is all inclusive!

Sail away with Ayacanora and let the crew treat you to the best things in life!

Don't let your dreams sit on the shelf. Come aboard for the vacation of a lifetime!
