Google "Sailboat charters, pick a state". The internet is your friend, and pretty intuitive. Then narrow it down to catamarans and be ready to part with many $$$$$$$ a day. Have fun.

They have several cats to choose from...prices range from $3600 to $6500 a week.

WOW well that sucks A _ _ i guess you should just purchase a boat then! I cant believe there is no place around that is reasonable! I have searched the internet and sometimes its not your friend it pisses you off to! There are a lot of motor boats to rent but that is not my way of fun!

Reasonable is a matter of who is defining it. You may think that the price is extraordinary, but the agent renting it does not.

If you pay the dollars for one of the big cats, insure it for chartering, maintain it, and also have overhead for the business side...they should probably be getting more for it.Also, when someone does something silly and it is out of service the costs go up and the cash flow goes down.

If this was an easy business and the costs got covered with no problem everybody would be doing it. Outside of the BVI there are not that many cats available to charter, and actually not that many mono providors either when you get down to it.

Those boats aren't cheap by any means....none of them are really. Any of the larger boats up for rental charter and gonna cost $$$$'s per week.

That's why they "sleep 8" .....divide that cost up between 8 people and it's easier to bear.

Plus, you still have to provision it too....

Unless....you're looking for a Hobie Cat for a day.....check around resorts and stuff...maybe some places will rent them, but SeeDoo's have taken over that market. If you do find one to rent, it'll probably still cost you $300+ per day.

Cheap powerboat rentals around here run $125 for 4 hours.....

So pick a spot to visit and then search resorts for Hobie, or similar, rentals. That is really a pretty good price for the Tri on your post. Buy it, you can sail it on a small lake, L. Erie, or the ocean.
