Milebuilder

Hi Guys, does anybody know who does milebuilders on Cats. The reason i ask is i'm considering buying a lagoon 420, but have limited sailing experiene (bareboat skipper) on a monohull. i can hire a 420 for a week in Croatia for 6000 euro's, too expensive!!! Thats why i thought of a milebuilder.
Cheers everyone, and just want to say what a great forum!
David

Re: Milebuilder

You can rent a Lagoon 420 in the Caribbean for around $5400, quite a bit cheaper but flights may cost you more.

I'll be bringing my cat up from Grenada to the BVI sometime middle October and may have cabins available for that trip. PM or email for details

Thanks for the offer Mike, however i'm on the other side of the world, based in Dubai. Would love something in the Med or Asia. Cheers

A mile builder is for someone advancing with their qualifications and who doesn't own a boat. You go on a charter boat with a skipper and you basically sail the boat under instruction of the captain, then he signs your log with the amount of miles sailed.
