Catamarans for sale by owner

Before taking the plunge.

Just a thought.
I am curious, what refitting do you think would need doing before you go sailing for a couple of years around the Caribbean?

Bearing in mind that Moorings do give them a good going over as it leaves charter. The sails will not be new but have two years + left in them and the engines will have a fair number of hours but again have two years + left in them.
