Welcome Christopher, I'm Chris from Edmonton. We have done a couple charters in the Vancouver area. Catamarans are a little scarse there. They exist, but you won't have a big selection. That said, we bought ours in lake Ontario
and barely saw another until we hit the icw
. So they can be found.
The other issue to be aware of is dockage. A lot of the marinas
in the area are full or quite expensive. I would recomend finding a slip for the boat first, before buying
I understand the desire to leave Alberta, and head
to the ocean! We did it last fall but went the other direction. Spent the winter
in the Bahamas
. Good luck, and enjoy the journey.
