Live-Aboard Sailor and Yacht Broker

Terry is an avid sailor starting his 20-year long love affair with the water by learning to sail on Lake Ontario. Two boats later, he moved to the western coast of Canada and set up residency in Victoria living aboard full-time. Always looking to expand his boundaries, Terry took his 32-foot sailboat down the US West Coast and tied up for a couple of years in San Diego, California. Looking to the future and feeling the pull of bluewater cruising, he acquired and re-fitted a 53-foot Amel Super Maramu ketch which he and his wife then took to the South Pacific and back putting 16,000 NM under her keel.

Having satisfied the appetite for monohull bluewater cruising, Terry and his wife, Dena, sold their West Coast boat in favor of moving onboard a modern ocean-going catamaran berthed in Florida. Khaleesi is a 2018 Lagoon 450 SporTop version. Terry and Dena help couples make the transition from a home on land to their home aboard by teaching them onboard Khaleesi. Couples can get firsthand knowledge from these experienced liveaboards.

As a sailor, owner, and live aboard, Terry knows exactly what it takes to buy, sell, own, operate, live on, and maintain a yacht.  His knowledge of what it takes to purchase, upgrade, prepare, and maintain a yacht for oceangoing conditions is extensive. As importantly, his knowledge of how to make a successful transition from a life on land to water is an invaluable addition of the unique pool of resources that Catamaran Guru offer whether you are looking to buy a catamaran or sell one.

Terry has developed the highest level of professionalism during his 30-year career in technology sales, business development, and management, which he now dedicates exclusively to Catamaran Guru. As a broker, Terry not only handles the buying and selling transactions for his clients from start to finish, he also invites prospective buyers onto his own boat so they can get a real feel of what yacht ownership is all about.

My Liveaboard Catamaran, Khaleesi, a Lagoon 450S


lyle and mary holding the title to their new-to-them 2017 fountaine pajot catamaran and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the purchase We had a dream to own and liveaboard a catamaran. We knew we needed a good broker because we had no experience and wanted someone who would help us through this process. We reached out to other companies, but all we received back were canned emails. We understood there were a ton of people reaching out and many never pulled the trigger to actually buy. We made it very clear that were ready and tried to get answers to questions, but only received more canned emails. When we finally reached out to Catamaran Guru, Estelle personally answered our email and questions within hours. She said she would be happy to put us in touch with one of their brokers. Enter broker Terry Singh. Terry called us the next day and spent nearly an hour just getting to know us. He wanted to know all about our needs and wants, likes, and dislikes, and can’t-live-withouts. He wanted to find us the right boat for us, not the right boat for him. Not long after that call he began sending us boats to consider. Telling him what we liked what we didn’t like about each one helped him to know us even better. He knew of boats that were not even on the market yet that would be coming available that we may be interested in for our future home. In this market he had already told us we would need to move fast and move fast we did. The perfect boat for us became available and sight unseen we made an offer. This was a tough decision, but Terry stayed close by our side every step of the way. We had no idea how this process worked and relied on him to answer many, many, many questions. He went through everything that was happening and what the next steps would be. He made sure that we never ended a conversation without complete understanding. I know this may seem expected, but we have friends who didn’t have this same experience. They were left in the dark throughout the entire process never knowing what would come next. I don’t know that we would have pulled the trigger as quickly had it not been for Terry, he made us that comfortable that the decision was “easy”. We expected him to help us find the boat, finish the paperwork, and then be done. Again, not what we got. We have been in our new liveaboard home for 5 months now and still receive periodic calls from him to just check in on us and see how things are going. He helped us with tons of contacts in the area and is always truly concerned about how we are doing and very excited for our every little accomplishment. Terry is now more than our broker. He and his unbelievable wife we now call our friends. We look forward to seeing them again soon and have no problem recommending him to anyone who is looking for a truly compassionate broker for their next yacht.

an iyer family member shaking hands with yacht broker terry singh of catamara guru following purchase of his lagoon 450If you are looking to buy your next catamaran look no further than Terry Singh. With his amazing personality, decades of sailing experience, deep industry knowledge, and incredible dedication to making sure we had the easiest and best experience possible –you cannot find a better agent. He is one of those brokers that is going to stick with you throughout the whole process, from pre-purchase to closing and even years afterward.

Terry — we cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make our sailing dreams a reality. We are so happy with our new Lagoon 42 Orion. You were not only a great broker but also a great friend throughout the entire process. Everything from scouring the globe for the perfect catamaran, to linking us up with closing specialists, lenders, accountants, and even opportunities to charter the boat to offset ownership costs. You and your wife were kind enough to spend your personal time with us down in the USVIs to get familiar with the boat and make sure we were completely comfortable.  You even offered to help us sail the boat back to Florida on a 12-day trip. While the boat buying process is complicated you were with us every step of the way, and a true friend always putting our interests first. I am so glad we found you and looking forward to staying in touch.

The Iyer Family, Washington DC (Lagoon 450)

Our family has been saving and making plans to cruise for the past 10 years.  When the time came to purchase, the complex process of researching, negotiating, and buying a suitable boat 5 time zones away during travel restrictions was daunting to say the least.  Terry Singh and the team at Catamaran Gurus located a boat perfectly suited to our mission and guided the entire transaction from the purchase offer through final documentation… all during hurricane season and pandemic lockdown.  Their communications were efficient and their experience helped us anticipate and avoid some real pitfalls.  Thanks Terry for your close watch on this significant family purchase!  Now on to adventure!

JR from Chugiak, Alaska (Lagoon 42)

Our group was very pleased with Terry Singh’s representation of our interest in the sale of our 2015 Lagoon 400 S2. We are relatively new to the charter boat ownership world and this was our first sale of a boat. Terry was very patient and guided us through everything involved with the sale process. From navigating the release of our boat from the possession of the charter management company, moving the boat from the BVI to the US and all the paperwork and processes involved in the sale of a boat, Terry was involved from day one. We’d highly recommend his services if you’re interested in purchasing a new or used boat or selling an existing boat. We’ll definitely work with him in the future!

We were very new to this sailing game, only having done 2 charters in the BVI. But we knew we wanted to really go for it and give it an honest try. We had a friend who got us in touch with Stephen Cockcroft and we had a lengthy phone call with him regarding where we were in our process and what we thought we wanted (not knowing if we were on point or way off base).

We had already made plans to go to the Miami Boat Show and Stephen got us connected with Terry Singh in the event we did not want to purchase a new catamaran. At the show after touring many many many catamarans, we decided to take a shot on the used market even though we had been watching the market for months and knew the boat we wanted was a unicorn (Lagoon 450F owners’ version).

After looking at almost all of the new catamarans and talking with Stephen, we sat down with Terry and went though the things that we learned were important to us after looking at so many of the new catamarans and let him know that we were really looking for the 450F.

Terry had just that very morning talked with another broker who was representing a seller that had the boat we wanted! Because of Terry’s network and positive working relationships with other brokers in the industry, he has the opportunity to sell boats prior to them ever reaching YachtWorld.

From that moment on, Terry (and his wife, Dena) were with us every step of the way. And as with anything relating to boating, nothing is ever as easy as it should be, but Terry was able to calm our fears and put us in a position to make rational decisions and get the deal done.

Since closing, Terry has maintained contact, not as a broker, but as a true friend providing additional insight to the boating lifestyle and boat ownership. This is something that really makes us feel good about our decision to go with Catamaran Guru and Terry.
