Catamaran Guru Seaschool Students Made Good

Sailing SchoolsDave, a 20+ year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard and his wife, Peggy, did their ASA live-aboard sailing school course with us in the Bahamas in 2009. They fell in love with the lifestyle and made the decision to sell their house, buy a catamaran, and do a sabbatical on their 42ft Fountaine Pajot catamaran upon retirement.

After a wonderful adventure on the eastern seaboard around Chesapeake Bay and then through the Bahamas on board Simplicity, they sold her and moved to the Pacific Northwest coast, closer to family. Though family duty called, the call of sailing soon pulled them back as Dave took a job as a yacht broker. A short time later, Dave and Peggy acquired Bellhaven Yacht Sales and Charters and have become local celebrities and their yacht brokerage business is thriving!

These two “seaschool plonkers” are not only veteran cruisers but also fully-fledged members of the marine industry. We have very fond memories of sailing with these two and we are so proud. We wish them the very best.

If you are interested in cruising in your retirement, we can help you avoid yacht buying mistakes and learn to lower your costs of yacht ownership. We can even help you if you have a reluctant partner who is not as excited about sailing and living aboard as you. Call us to set up an appointment to chat about your dream.

UPDATE: Dave is now a Catamaran Guru yacht broker!
