A British “Airline Buccaneer” found his Perfect Escape in The Bahamas

Sir Freddie Laker (1922-2006), a British airline entrepreneur, is best known as the founder of Laker Airways. It was the first airline to adopt the “no frills” business model that has proven so successful worldwide with companies such as Southwest Airlines, Ryanair, easyJet and Virgin Australia.

Sir Freddie was a rambunctious free-thinker of a man, a working class hero, who started off sweeping floors and ended up amassing a vast personal fortune in his quest for affordable air travel. He was a great mentor to Virgin entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, whose motto “Screw it Just Do It!” reflects Freddie’s gung-ho attitude to business and life.

It comes as no surprise that this swash-buckling airline buccaneer, known for wrangling with British Airways and any government that stood in his way, would find his ideal home in the laissez-faire haven of The Bahamas.

“No Frills” in Business But Spared no Expense on his Bahamas Home

Just 60 miles from Miami, you too can have the perfect escape. The 1.69 acre, 5 bedroom oceanfront residence is located in the exclusive private community of Princess Isle.

While Sir Freddie may have pioneered the “no frills” business model, his incredible property has everything you could possibly wish for in a tropical getaway or year-round home!
