Wanted: 4-8 week charter/rental in the Caribbean

My wife and I own a 43 Irwin Mk III on Georgian Bay where we've been sailing for the last 10+ years. We do ALL the maintenance on our boat ..... and help others with theirs...so we are pretty knowledgeable of boat systems.
We have chartered boats from the common chartering companies ( Footloose, Conch, Sunsail, etc) for the last 5 years in the Virgin Islands - British, US, and Spanish. (We did get additional experience in Turkey before the situation over there went crazy.)
We're looking for a reasonably priced rental/charter anywhere in the Caribbean. Anyone know of someone in the Caribbean who is unable to use their boat and would be willing to rent/charter it for a few thousand dollars? We are more than willing to do whatever maintenance needs doing.

Good luck. My wife and I just priced everything we could find and selected Horizon Charters for a 4 week charter. The going rate is $600 per week up for a catamaran in the caribbean during the winter. To get 8 weeks for a few thousand would be the steal of a lifetime if you can pull it off.

You can rent a catamaran for $600 per week in the caribbean in the winter?? Wow, is it a Hobie 16? Where would you find such a deal or did you mean $6,000 per week.
