Built in 2006, Sunluver is a Lagoon 440 with the Owners Suite layout that offers guests a comfortable, enjoyable, and restful stay. Beautifully appointed rooms and countless amenities make Sunluver one of Key West's most desired private yachting experience. The catamaran by design has a more roomy interior and offers a smooth sailing experience without the "heeling" motion of a monohull that often causes sea sickness.
