Motor Yacht Leander has arrived in Antigua in time for the 50th Anniversary of the Antigua Charter Yacht Show and in doing so has created history.

While Leander herself has been coming to Antigua since 1992, this year is the first time she has entered into the Antigua Charter Yacht Show.

At 74.7 metres Leander is the second largest yacht to enter the show in 2011 the largest being Air at 81.1 metres.

To celebrate both the 50th Antigua Charter Yacht Show and the 50th year of restoration of Nelson’s Dockyard Leander has chosen the historic marina as it’s home base for the duration of the show and in fact the season.

Captain Julian Cope said “It is exciting to make history in this way. Leander is officially the largest yacht to have ever docked at Nelson’s Dockyard Marina and I would encourage other motor yachts to consider doing so.  The beautiful and historic surroundings are a wonderful backdrop to the event and our time spent in Antigua”.
