Dear Cruiser Community:
We are a family
of 4 (2 adults with daughters ages 13 & 16) looking for a 3 month catamaran
rental in the caribbean
for the period around November 1st - January 31st. We have bareboat
chartered many times over the past years including the areas: BVI
, USVI, Italy
, Puerto Rico
, St Martin
, St Lucia
, St Vincent and the Grenadines. ASA
certified. We've received quotes from DYC and the Moorings that are "off the chart" expensive for a 3 month period over high season. Thus, this post to the Cruiser Forum.
In the event you are a live aboard
cruiser that plans to be on land during this period and might have interest in renting
to our family
, I would love to connect. Not sure how insurance
but we would want to make sure that we had boat/liability insurance
during the rental period. We would limit our sailing to the caribbean
Looking for a cat sized 36 to 46 ft, generator
, dingy, water
maker and solar
, 3 cabins. We are two professionals (software engineer
and I'm in Finance) and we would work
remotely on our laptops. We are tidy, respectful, well insured, and understand that there are always little things (and big) that need to be fixed and attended to on a boat
I also had a crazy idea about a boat for house 3 month trade
. We have a 4 bed
/ 4 bath house in central Denver historic area (Congress Park Neighborhood - close to downtown Denver). Looking for a perfect match I suppose!
I've looked at purchasing
a Fontaine Pajot for full time cruising but want to do 3 months first and make sure that this is the right decision for us (also, certainly, COVID has given us great hesitation about making a boat purchase
We are US citizens but my husband and children
hold EU passports which we hope might open up more entry areas for us (would love any thoughts you may have on this as we understand Americans are very limited to travel to other countries at present).
Thanks for reading this long post & hope all in the sailing community are well and safe during this strange COVID time!
