Cats are The Way To Go

First....I'm not a cat guy, I've grown up on monohulls and will rarely take
a large catamaran offshore. That being said.....I live and make my living as a charter captain in the Virgin Islands and will tell you that if your intent is to offset the costs of ownership and get in some great sailing along the way you should consider a cat. As crewed charter yachts go a 44' cat is the hottest thing in these waters. four cabins, four heads, flat ride, big cockpit, plenty of water capacity....it's what crewed term charter clients want.
do your research and you will find the 4 cabin cats are booked this year...everybody else is holding their breath and praying for bookings.

Happy to answer your questions...email me or call me atg 340-513-3174.
If you make a move and need crew contact me.

Fair Winds
Capt. Bob
