We’ve made our whole lives about enjoying and introducing people to the incredible marine environment that surrounds us. That’s why we decided to become members of 1% For The Planet. Through this incredible organization, we have pledged to donate at least 1% of each dollar you spend with Layla Sailing to environmental causes. This is one way of making sure we do our part to preserve what we love.


Layla is a Fastnet 45, built to the highest standards for ocean cruising at the respected Dutch yard of Adolf LeComte. These yachts were designed by Bill Luders, who created a powerful, sea-kindly vessel with beautiful classic lines. Layla is hull #189 out of the LeComte yard, but one of only nineteen Fastnet 45s ever made! She’s a classic head turner in any harbor. 

Relax in the cushioned open cockpit while our crew serves you and your guests. This area is meant for lounging, with some shade available under the bimini, (not rigged in photos). Layla’s flush deck provides ample space to lounge on deck.


Captain Liz grew up on the waters surrounding Orient and started sailing at the Orient Yacht Club when she was 8 years old. Liz has sailed across the Atlantic Ocean and worked in the Virgin Islands, and Hawaii. For three years prior to starting her own business, she captained another Greenport charter vessel. In purchasing Layla, Liz has realized a lifelong dream. She intends to show you the best day of your summer onboard! 


Wonderful day with friends on the water – the boat is beautiful, comfortable and fun! Captain Liz was great, professional and she created a relaxing time for all of us. Glad we did the full day – will recommend to friends and be back soon! Thank you!

We had such an amazing time on Layla. The boat is truly beautiful. I’ve been coming out to Greenport since I was a young child and this truly made me fall in love all over again with Greenport. Highly recommended.

 Liz and Rachel were extremely professional. Thank you! I will definitely be doing this again.

Our small bachelorette group decided to do the two hour sunset cruise – and in retrospect, wish we had signed up for a longer cruise! Not only was the boat beautiful and clean, but the route was quite relaxing, with amazings view to boot! We especially loved the bean bag chairs on the front of the boat, and when they brought us a fruit platter it was just the sweetest perfect touch! We had champagne and Rachel and Liz did not mind we were blasting our favorite tunes! They both were so sweet, flexible, and very accommodating to a great time. I highly recommend sailing the Layla for any occasion – I will definitely be back!

My family had an incredible time onboard with Captain Liz. We were impressed with her ability to read the weather and navigate the perfect day for us. Thank you for thinking of every detail and introducing my kids to sailing for the first time.

I had the pleasure of spending a full day with Captain Liz on Layla and highly recommend this experience for families, couples, and friends. Captain Liz and her deckhand Rachel made our day extra special from start to finish. The boat is absolutely beautiful – it is impeccably clean, and the seating and layout are extremely comfortable. Liz is an extremely competent and knowledgeable captain, and her comfort and experience put us all at ease, especially because several people on the trip had never been on a sailboat before. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day on the North Fork – it’s a unique, relaxing, and beautiful experience to share with friends and family! I will definitely be booking again soon!
