Laila Pad

2018 Antares 44GS

Laila Pad

After doing much research online and going to multiple boat shows Laila and Will honed in their purchase of the Antares catamaran. Will’s #1 goal in any adventure is to stay safe so he can take care of his wife Laila and kids, Joy and Vinny. Choosing the Antares, built around safety, followed that goal. Will and his wife had aspirations of first circumnavigating and after that for Will to solo circumnavigate however life changed his plans. Kids entered the picture! Now they’d rather wait until their kids get older so they can fully understand and appreciate such a unique opportunity.

With a newborn son and 3-year-old daughter, Laila Pad has seen minimal use since arriving in San Diego. The sailing dream will need to be put on hold for now for this family but Laila Pad is ready to embrace the next one.

Having already traveled up from Argentina to San Diego, she has had her shake-down and ready to keep going from that great jumping-off point, the West Coast. She is also the first Antares 40GS on that side of the US. The extended cockpit hardtop, water collection, 1200 Watts of solar, larger davits, and a clear aft view, are all welcome improvements to the liveaboard experience.

    A Couple's Unexpected Journey Around the World

    story by Joanne Bush
    Joanne at a tiger sanctuary

    "I would have never stepped aboard Miss Jody had I known we would end up sailing around the world. My husband Ron, a life-long sailor and racer convinced me to go cruising. Our plan was to sail as far as the San Blas Islands in Panama, with the caveat that I could always go home if I didn’t like it. I could jump ship and buy a bus ticket from the Florida Keys back to Pensacola, Fla., and it was relatively easy to return home from the Caribbean."

    "Don't get me wrong, I love traveling, and the opportunity to discover new places and meet new people has always been a big draw for me, but I never imagined the 'getting there' part would be by sea, and certainly not in a 42-foot catamaran. Miss Jody is an Antares 42, a predecessor to the Antares 44, and for a reluctant sailor, a catamaran would be an excellent vessel for us to explore the Caribbean."
