Hello, thanks in advance for the great info on this forum. I am currently living in Belize
and COVID gave my husband and I a chance to finally learn to sail. I will be relocating back to the US on a 40' leopard
and looking to buy a condo close to a marina in either Brandenton or Fort Myers
. I am going to Florida
next week to check out the marinas
and it is quite a flooding process!
Our plan is to sail from Belize
to the new marina after we are done selling some assets in Belize. While no major urgency, I am hoping to find a marina that will accept a 40' catamaran
and from there, we plan on making this home base, but not very often - we want to sail around the Caribbean
as much as possible. We are choosing this area because we have a few friends and family
there, although I know it would easier to be on the Miami
side, we are a better fit for this area.
I have tried to comb through past threads and greatly appreciate the info I have been able to gather. We are new to sailing and will be new to Florida
, and very excited to start this phase of our lives! We are in our early 40's, no kids
, and look forward to the huge changes this new life will bring
. Hope to meet some of you and look forward to any feedback!
