The llaut is a small and medium-size boat with a lateen sail which is typical of the Balearic Islands (Mallorca and Menorca); it is traditionally used for trawl fishing. The first versions of the llauts were built by local craftsmen using local wood, especially oak, pine and elm, and were designed to offer more comfort to fishermen in a small space. This tradition has been lost over time, given that trawl fishing is more regulated today, but the latest versions of the llaut on the market, are motorised, larger and can reach a speed of 7 knots.

Today, llauts are made of fibreglass, making them quite affordable and still providing a high-quality finish, similar to that found in luxury yachts. Thanks to their stability in the water and resistance in inclement weather conditions, the llaut is a perfect boat for various types of activities, such as recreational sailing and sport fishing.
