Hayhu was purchased by myself in Dec 2017 to be cruising with my family of 3 during the winter in the Caribbean. Sailing from Annapolis to Antigua Caribbean, in Winter time, was a challenging trip and a good sea trial where she proved that she is a strong seaworth boat, the wind vane worked well beyond my expectations giving a good rest for the hydraulic autopilot and crew in a long passage.

In the Caribbean we sailed her from Antigua to most of the West Indies Islands. She’s been kept in the dry dock for the hurricane seasons and sailed on the winters. Last winter she was kept on the hard making 1 year plus of storage on the dry. She had a new bottom painted in January 2024 and some cosmetics work was done. This season Hayhu was splashed in January and has been sailing around Antigua & Barbuda Islands till now.

As a professional Yacht captain Hayhu was kept on high standards with updated maintenance and service schedule
