stephen and estelle cockcroft are owners of catamaran guru

Being successful catamaran broker-consultants isn’t just business, it’s our lifestyle. We are Stephen & Estelle. 25+ years ago in a friend’s backyard in Cape Town, South Africa, we built our first boat then sailed the world. Discovering new places, meeting extraordinary people, and enjoying unique experiences was fun, not work! We've co-owned a catamaran manufacturer, consulted with catamaran manufacturers, managed charter companies, and taught sailing. These experiences and living aboard for 22+ years have taught us important lessons that we happily share with fellow sailors and yacht owners like you. 

Today, Catamaran Guru™ is the number one go-to company for catamaran buyers. As experienced yacht brokers and liveaboard catamaran owners ourselves, we help you realize your cruising dreams safely and comfortably while maintaining more of your investment. Whether you are a cruiser looking for a well priced, well-equipped catamaran or want to reduce cost of ownership by placing your catamaran in a charter fleet, we have the expertise to help you.
