WHAT IS A LLAÜT?
The llaut is a small traditional boat from Balearic Islands made of wood and rigged with latin sail, originally used for fishing. Because of their good sailing qualities and great safety in adverse weather conditions, it was a boat highly prized by fishermen. Formerly they were built by hand by the “mestre d’aixa” (Riverside carpenter).
Thanks to this type of seaworthiness this boat has reached great prestige in the nautical world, evolving to more advanced designs already using composite materials such as fiberglass and more capable engines. Today it is used for both recreational sailing and for sport and professional fishing.
We have selected llaüts especially built byAstilleros Capeador, which belongs to a family of “Mestres d’aixa” which has more than 50 years of experience dedicated to building llaüts.
