Aloha All (from Jack & Nicole)
We are a younger couple in are 30s looking to make the dream come true on a budget
. We have been saving and planning for 6 years. We are now ready to set out on a 5 year down wind circumnavigation
. I have been doing scuba
instruction and captain
work for the past 10 years. I will continue to do this as we do our circumnavigation
. Nicole is a flight attendant with a lot of friends that fly for free, so we will also do light chartering. Nicole also writes and is working on her dive master.
So this is the part where you come in. We are offering a $500 reward to anyone that can help us find our catamaran
. We know 120k is on the low end for a cat like we want. The catamaran
kitty did not grow as big as we hoped. So we are looking for one great deal on a catamaran.
If you have a cat that is worth more than 120k and if you want to see it make a circumnavigation but you don't have the time or money
and don't enjoy long passages, we may consider an agreement where the current
owner would get some free charter
weeks every year. This could be a great opportunity for everyone.
We don't mind a cat that needs work but the buying price
would need to be less than 120K. We would do most the work our selves if possible. A cat that needs re-powering, sails
and TLC would be fine.
We are looking for something bigger than 36ft. and less than 45ft.
Here are some of the features we are looking for however we realize the budget
may not get all of them. Owners version, good bridge deck
up, straight shafts and dagger boards
. We want a low maintenance
simple boat, but not a wooden boat.
We are cash buyers and can travel just about anywhere today to see the right boat.
Well thanks for reading and I hope to give you the $500 reward soon.
Jack & Nicole
