    We are always asked if we will ever be offering other itineraries.

    The answer is YES!

    We would like to introduce the newest member of the All Star Liveaboards fleet, Cuan Law. At 105' long and 44' wide, Cuan Law is the largest trimaran in the world and can accommodate up to 20 guests in her 10 spacious staterooms. Cuan Law is a boutique luxury liveaboard that departs from Tortola, British Virgin Islands with special charters to St. Maarten/Saba. Space is still available on our St. Maarten/Saba charter in November!

    Very interesting. What I read of the Cuan Law is usually through Diver Steve's posts about it, when someone looking for trip options sounds like a possible match. Which has me curious about your likely target audience.

    As Caribbean region live-aboards go, 105' if reasonably long; that width is notable. The Belize Aggressor IV has a 26' beam, the Cayman Aggressor IV a 22' beam, but the Cuan Law beam is 40' wide! It would be interesting to see it in person.

    Can you show us a photo gallery so we can see what's it like on aboard?

    You describe it as a 'boutique' live-aboard. IIRC from Diver Steve's posts, the Cuan Law offers some other recreational activities besides diving. Can you tell us in detail more about that?

    I ask because while I hear good things about British Virgin Islands diving, I hear good things about a number of places in the Caribbean (e.g.: Caymans, Turks & Caicos, Belize via live-aboard). At $2,845 + fees, it's toward the upper end of the mid-range Caribbean live-aboard in price, but offers a lower # of divers more in line with budget live-aboards like Blackbeards (also your boats) and the Juliet, and if people want to dive Saba, the Caribbean Explorer is cheaper (I'm told they dive St. Kitts; do you dive much around St. Martin on those Saba/St. Martin itineraries, or focus on Saba?).

    I got the impression from older threads the Cuan Law might appeal to people bring non-divers on a live-aboard (e.g.: kayaks, land excursions), or who want to do nice diving but not to the 'dive-aholic' extreme of 25 - 27 dives/week). Is this an accurate view, or is there more to it?

    Richard.

    P.S.: Is the new ownership changing anything about the way they operate that customers will notice?

    I was a passenger on all of Duncan & Annie's boats--beginning 40 or so years ago. I assume we could be refereed to as the Pioneers of the Drakes Lake diving

    Questions
    1) How are Duncan & Annie? Last person contact with Annie was 10 years ago at DEMA
    2) Daughter Shasha ?
    We have pictures of her on the Lammer in diapers setting on my lap..35 years ago
    I suspect she finished her education in England and is now married with family

    We were all Kalifornians who traveled across the miles to dive on the Laws and enjoy the company of Duncan & Annie and later their daughter. There are only 3 of the tribe remaining who were participants of that bygone era. It would be appreciated if you would PM or Post contact information for Duncan Annie and Shasha.

    Thank You Hombre !
    I and the two remaining members of the tribe certainly appreciate your efforts in obtaining and transmitting these pictures.

    It certainly demonstrates and verifies that "time marches on."

    The ownership remains that of Annie and Duncan Muirhead. AllStar Liveaboards takes over the marketing and reservations for their diving itineraries. The vessel is extremely comfortable. Cabins are real bedrooms- queen size beds (or two twins), no bunks! The food is truly gourmet and the drink service is top shelf. The diving is offered at 15-19 dives per week (Blackbeard's offers up to 20) for the same number of diving days. When a diving itinerary is scheduled, we'll offer 19 for the week. Plus, you can always dive when at anchor, right under the boat, to increase your log count. It is a beautiful area to explore and we incorporate topside activities and shore excursions into the itinerary. This in fact, does make it more appealing to those less inclined to log 26 dives (like on the AQUA CAT). The activities offered include Hobie Cat sailing, kayaking, beach excursions, island hopping. Cooper Island for a rum tasting, Jost Van Dyke for a bar visit to Foxy's, hike the trail thru the Baths at Virgin Gorda to the top of the hill for a dip in the pool and fantastic views. This just names a few. The diving will include a day at the Rhone, a famous wreck, as well as many other sites. As for St Maarten, we offer down island itineraries a few times of year (next year, they are in October and November).
