The Nexus 600 is a 60 foot sailing catamaran built by Nexus Catamarans in St Francis. She has a great Facebook Page called Nexus Offshore Adventures, which is worth following.
Named “Lyra Noa”, she is the realization of a dream which began in 2011 when the Paarman brother sailed the first Nexus 600 across the Atlantic to Grenada. They fished some incredible seamounts and vowed to return and do a circumnavigation to fish all the lessor known and unreachable places in the ocean. This story has continued with the owner’s first trip to Madagascar in September 2019, followed by Lyra Noa’s first Atlantic crossing scheduled for January 2020.
