Annopolis Catamarans

Hello, First of all, Thank You, to those who responded to my first post on insurance, I tried to reply via email. Looks like this thread will be easier to find, I will be in Annopolis on August 23, (my son is starting school at St Johns College). I want to look at cats, not ready to buy. I would like to talk to owners, and possibly look at boats docked here. What are the best companies to contact. So far my choice would be a 44 Lagoon (charter), less up front money. Leopards and FP also look good. These two posts are my first on anything, computer skills are lacking.,

Welcome aboard, and welcome to Annapolis. My partner is active in the Friends of St Johns here in town. Send me a PM and we can catch up somewhere while you are around. Where are you staying?

Try Sail Away Catamarans.

We bought our boat from Tommy and he is honest, friendly, and a true expert on catamarans. Lots of cats to look at right there on his docks.

Tommy treated us like his best customers, even when we walked right in off the street and he had every reason to believe we were just looky-loos.

Hello, Hope this is the place for pm. My email is rick.cawood@nashville.gov We will dive up on the 22nd, stay somewhere near Annopolis, and then spend two days in Annopolis. My son is excited about St Johns, he visited last year, very nice town. Thank You for your responce, and look foward to speaking with you.

Rick

Re: Annopolis Catamarans

Janejoy,

Thanks for the tip. I will contact and set up a time to meet. How do you like the size of your boat compared to a 44 footer. The more I read, the less boat I can afford. Evidently, post reply and quote are the same. Love computers.


Rick

HA! Keep thinking this way, because you are dead right. In addition to the initial cost of the boat, count on spending another 25-35 percent in your first year to make it yours and do necessary updating. Don't believe it? We didn't either....

We find that the 42 footer is plenty big for the two of us (+3 cats) - but of course others would have a different idea about the number of feet and/or hulls that will allow for a comfortable life aboard. The bigger and newer cats seem SO luxurious and spacious. Also, many are set up for easier, and therefore safer, short-handed sailing. If we had an extra quarter mil hanging about we probably wouldn't have made the choice we did. For whatever amount of cash you have to spend, you can choose to go smaller and newer or bigger and older.
