Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono

Sitting in the Tobago Cays National Marine Sanctuary last week during the Easter charter season there were around 45 catamarans and about 9 monohulls. Of the cats, perhaps half a dozen were privately owned and the rest were bareboats, some crewed and some not. Of the monohulls, 2 were bareboats and the rest private cruising boats.
I can't imagine anyone spending the money these days on a monohull for a bareboat charter fleet. I doubt they would work enough to pay their way.
