Bali Catamarans Debut

You can find us at the Bali Catamaran Exhibit on B-Dock for most of the show. The Bali 4.3 and Bali 4.5 will make their debut here in Annapolis for the first time and we expect the exhibit to be a show stopper. This is very exciting for us since we have been involved in the early stages of concept and have presented this brand to the public in the USA for the first time. The Bali Catamarans are for sale both into charter and into private ownership. There will be boat show specials from the factory for this show, so be sure to check in with us. Contact us.

Charter Yacht Management

We will also be available for charter management, business yacht ownership, and boat business tax advantage consultations. For this, you will find us with Dream Yacht Charters in the vacation Basin on H-dock. If you are in the market for a boat in charter management and want to avoid the pitfalls, talk with us. Some exciting news…Dream Yacht Charter will have the Lagoon 400S2 on display at their booth on B-Dock! This model has not been at many of the shows, so if you want to see the L400S2, please visit us there.

Guys, we will be BUSY during the show. This promises to be a really big show with visitors from all over the world. So, if you need to speak to us about buying a catamaran, call us (804) 815-5054 or e-mail us to make an appointment!

We Can Help You Buy Any Make of Sailboat

Did you know that we can help you buy a catamaran from any of the manufacturers such as Lagoon, Bali, Fountaine Pajot, etc. to place into charter? Yes, these catamaran models are all available for sale into charter fleets. Charter companies are very competitive and will offer all kinds of incentives like this one from Dream Yacht Charter: They offer reciprocal worldwide sailing in performance programs. It is a really great freebie! Interested in a pre-owned catamaran instead? Let us help you find the perfect catamaran for you.

Cruisers University & Seminars

Two of our preferred sailing school instructors, Lisa and Andy Batchelor will present two seminars at the show. Their experience in cruising and chartering enabled them to write the ASA “Bareboat Cruising Made Easy” textbook, and they are in the process of writing the ASA’s upcoming “Cruising Catamaran” book, all while teaching and doing flotillas. They will present the following two courses at the cruisers university during the show: Take the Stress out of Docking & Night Cruising Desmystified. Check them out.

Work With Us, We Practice What We Preach!

Our own new catamaran will be going into a charter management program because we believe that it works if done right! We have done the research, collected the data and we are putting this into practise once again for ourselves as we have advised so many buyers to do. Many of our catamaran owners who have placed their boats into charter management with Dream Yacht Charter and others, will be at the show and would be happy to chat with “newbies” and give you a perspective on their own experiences. Meanwhile read some yacht buyer testimonials here.

We come with years of expertise, knowledge and personal experience. By taking advantage of our experience, you can save yourself a lot of headache! Stephen and I (Estelle) would like the opportunity to earn your business and become your yacht broker and friend for life! You don’t have anything to lose except to get an awesome deal and make a friend.

Give us a call before the show at (804) 815-5054 for a no-obligation chat, and let’s see if we’re a good fit for you!
