Is BAREFEET RETREAT the perfect Catamaran to Own for Charter?
Are you in the market for a catamaran to place in charter? Then BAREFEET RETREAT might be the right catamaran for you. Owning a catamaran in a charter fleet can offset the cost of ownership while maximizing your opportunity to enjoy the vessel during the weeks of the year you want to!
First thing you’ll want to do is determine your goal with charter. “Most programs will cover costs, and some may even make you slightly cash-positive in the end. But this is generally not a way to make money. On the other hand, if your goal is to spend more time sailing, offset the cost of vacations and maybe try out the cruising lifestyle before selling everything and committing, then this could be just the ticket. Of course, if you’re looking to leverage yacht ownership for some kind of tax break, you need to have a detailed conversation with your accountant well ahead of time.” – Sail Magazine
Meet BAREFEET RETREAT. She was designed with crewed charter in mind but also stands out as a very capable and safe, CE Certified Blue Water family cruiser with 6 cabins and 6 heads. She has sailed over on her own bottom to the Virgin Islands from South Africa where she was built. Her Flybridge design provides 3 deck levels to stretch out on and great visibility for the skipper. If you have a large family to cruise with or have ever dreamed of doing a crewed charter business on your own vessel, this would be the best possible choice of a Blue Water Catamaran.
Barefeet Retreat has 6 double staterooms with ensuite heads. She has a huge, nicely appointed salon with ample seating and dining areas. The spacious cockpit area is comfortable with great seating with plenty of space to move around or Barbecue.
The galley has more counter space than most and an Island prep table full of storage. She has room for 6 couples and crew. The deck space is wide open forward to the trampolines. The Fly Bridge deck is spacious and functional with a dining table and lots of seating up near the helm. This is an ideal layout for entertaining.
