Crewed Charter Sector is Strong & Growing! The majority of the new boats that we sold in the last two years are bigger cats, 48 ft and bigger. They will all be going into our crewed charter program in different parts of the Bahamas and Caribbean. Some of these catamarans are owner operated cats and others have employed professional crew to operate their boats.

Dave & Peggy’s Cruising Adventures During the COVID-19 Lockdown

Peggy & Dave Catamaran Guru™Dave is another “Old Salt” who joined our team at Catamaran Guru™ as a broker. As live-aboard cruisers, Dave and Peggy know what its like to be fully prepared, stocked, and totally self-sufficient. They had planned to be cruising in the Bahamas for four months, but that visit was cut short when the Coronavirus reared its ugly head. Here is what’s been happening with them during the past few weeks since COVID-19 hit.

Peggy and I are currently in Fernandina Beach, en-route to Beaufort, SC. We crossed the Gulfstream from the Abacos, Bahamas two weeks ago to Ft Pierce and spent a week in Vero Beach getting and installing a new alternator. It was a tough decision to leave the Bahamas. We felt safe from the virus as we cruised Eleuthera and then Spanish Wells and the Abacos. All of these places are fairly remote except for the more populated islands like Great Abaco. We had very little, if any chance of getting infected since we were well provisioned for an extended period of time anyway. We only ventured into town periodically for fresh vegetables and diesel.

Hello from the Water! Social Distancing Onboard Khaleesi

Terry Dena yacht brokerTerry and Dena are part of the awesome Catamaran Guru™ team and live aboard full-time on their Lagoon 450 catamaran, Khaleesi. Terry is an enthusiastic sailor and is the latest member to join our catamaran brokerage team. During this forced social distancing period, they give us an update of what they are up to from their boat in the Florida Keys. 

From time to time, living aboard our boat has SPECIAL advantages. As COVID-19 started rolling in, we untied the lines and set sail. It’s been almost two weeks now and we are alive and well!

We learned long ago how to provision for months at a time. Fresh produce lasts a long time if well prepared and stored and we have plenty of canned fruits and vegetables. I bake bread and treats all the time and always have enough yeast and flour!

Last month we caught these incredible lobsters in the Bahamas. We ate the tails a while ago but saved the rest of them to make lobster broth and bisques, which I did this week.

Coping As A Liveaboard Sailor During The Pandemic

Catamaran broker Thea koshmanMost of us who live aboard are used to being independent, self-sufficient and can live "off the grid" for long periods of time. We usually have a good supply of food onboard, have communications, can generate our own electricity, and can make our own water. Catamaran Guru™ team member, Thea Koshman, shares her tips and tricks on how she copes with life and social distancing on her catamaran as a full-time liveaboard during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Steve and I own a 2016 Lagoon 450F and we live aboard full-time. When the COVID-19 crisis hit, we didn’t jump on the panic bandwagon as quickly as most people here in South Florida. Instead we found ourselves visiting unusual grocery stores in search of provisions. See, my husband, Steve, is a chef and I am a foodie so we usually spend time creating delicious food and experimenting with our Ninja air fryer and our Zojurushi bread maker. I absolutely love our Soda Stream. It saves space and money! We decided to make it a fun activity and journey of discovery while we wait this out.
