Catamarans of the Caribbean

Catamarans for sale in the Caribbean BVI British Virgin Islands and through out the Islands.

When looking for Lagoon Robertson and Caine Leopard and Fountaine Pajot Catamarans for sale you will find just about this time of the year that the larger charter companies are processing the phase out yachts in their fleet, this means that there is an abnormal number of catamarans that have been put into the market over a very short time. These charter companies have tried to pre-sell, this to be created inventory, but there are not too many buyers who are willing to make a purchase with out having the opportunity to survey and sail away.

For some, purchasing in the Caribbean can be a bit intimidating if you are not familiar with the Islands and the process. I have spent many years working with that environment and would like to extend my observations and services to any one interested in the assistance. There can be some very good buys, the exchange rate is better than it has been in the past, so please feel comfortable in emailing just about anytime and or just a call away at 954.821.6450

Lagoon 380 Sales and Service St Augustine Catamaran Center

Catamaran Service and Sales. Just about any catamaran though, we can haul up to a 40' beam! One of the great opportunities for The St Augustine Catamaran Center is it's location in St Augustine Marine just off the Inter Coastal along the San Sabatian River.

Tim Benner of "I Dream of Jeanne", a Lagoon 380, and a very active member of the Lagoon Owners Forum, recently pulled for maintenance here at the yard. Tim, is always got some project going on. I had the opportunity to inspect the Hardtop that he built himself and did a great job! I have enjoyed Tim's willingness to pass on to other Lagoon owners his challenges in maintaining his Catamaran and I am sure that those who have had the opportunity to learn from his challenges appreciate his input just as much or more!
Tim has been great, in assisting with what we are doing here at St Augustine Catamaran Center. Recently we had a day event "tagged" Bahama Bound provided by SouthEast Sailing and Yachts, our direct Service provider and Tim was gracious enough to bring his Lagoon 380 to our docks and further monitored a seminar "Sailing the Bahamas from a Catamaran Prospective". Great event. Well attended, good speakers that covered a multiple number of topics from communications to clearing customs, navigation and as well as places to go. Anway, a big thanks to Tim for his catamaran input.

We are excited about the growth of St Augustine Catamaran Center and our very pleased to provide high quality service via SouthEast Sailing and St Augustine Marine. If you are looking for storage, bottom jobs and or complete repairs and re-fits please feel free to give me a call John Anderson, 954-821-6450. Email? You can reach me just about anytime

Catamarans sometimes Large and Small!!

Here is a picture and a story that I thought is worth sharing. Wandering the docks recently here was a gentlemen and his Catamaran anchored just off the docks of Oyster Creek, St Augustine. He was close enough that I could ask a few questions.
He explained to me that the entire craft was built by himself. "I'm still working on the rig and sail!,, but works just fine!" I noticed the rather curious vertical panel off the aft port hull and after further inspection realized that this piece of plywood was attached to a rod and drum arrangement further attached by line to the tiller and rudder on the starboard hull... A self steering system! I had to ask if it worked.. "Works pretty good most of the time" was the answer.. As I wished him well, heading off the docks,, smiled to myself and noted that sailing so often is living that dream! A dream that can be executed both large and small.. Fair Winds!

Sailing your Dream, a Dream that can be Reached!

You know, all of us spend time looking and dreaming for our next adventure. Some good folks that have a Lagoon 440 Catamaran not for sale have lived that dream and a dream that goes on, Sail On,!! They recently wrote:

"Hey John, It is great to hear from you. Yep, we are still cruising, in fact we are now starting our third year. While Leu Cat is moored in Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador, Mary Margaret and I are currently in the Peruvian Amazon.

We still post our daily blog at:

Awhile ago I started adding a "Techno-Tip Of The Day" when we are on the boat. There must be over 200 of them now. These are just daily tips on anything relating to cruising: from maintenance, repairs, sailing techniques, nautical stuff, etc, etc, etc. When Mary Margaret writes the blog, she does a Galley Tip Of The Day. We started this at the request of a number of readers of our blog. Who would have thought when we started our blog we would have about 500 to 600 readers a week from all over the world. Go figure!In early March we head over to the Galapagos and then in early April we head over to the Marquesas and points west.

We hope to be in New Zealand by November of this year.The Lagoon 440 is doing great. We really love the way she sails, even with all of the weight we have on her. However, I am still trying to learn the best way of flying the asymmetrical spinnaker we have. Any tips you can send our way would be greatly appreciated. Also, any tips you may have on reefing downwind. I have added a downhaul, which helps but if you have good insight on reefing a catamaran on a downwind tack, if would be appreciated. With the big roachy mailsail, it is so different than a monohull!I still try to steer people your way. We greatly appreciated everything you did for us.Best Regards and give your now, not so recent bride, our warmest thoughts. Dave Leu"

I wish David and Mary Margaret the very best, Sail On!,, and if you would like to begin your own adventure and looking for the right yacht?, please feel free to contact me just about any time at 954.821.6450 or email

Catamaran Friendly Boat Yards Florida USA an Up Date

I am always looking for Catamaran friendly Boat Yards and just recently had the opportunity to visit Port Canaveral Marine and was very impressed with the fact that they have a rather new facility. Erik Nelson, VP, in a conversation said “We love Catamarans”. With their 110 Ton lift extra wide, they can pull Catamarans up to 30’ wide. Erik further noted that” Our Service yard can assist you in your engine repairs, generator repairs, electrical, storage of your boat in our dry storage or wet slips, bottom painting, haul outs, parts purchasing, and more!”

Port Canaveral, just a piece down the waterway from the St Augustine Catamaran Center, just adds another opportunity to have your catamaran for sale and or serviced in the Central/North East Florida area.

If you have an interest in further details as to Catamaran friendly Boat Yards, here in this area and or possibly looking for suggestions in other areas, please, as always I am available just about anytime (954)821.6450

By the way, you can always take a cruise while the boat is being worked on!! Click to enlarge, the Carnival Dream Port Canaveral!

Gemini Catamaran Owner Creativity!

8/03/2012 New Beginings are in the Wind! In the interim, Great Deals Abound! New, Like New and Previously Owned Selections of Gemini Catamarans for Sale are available as never before! Contact me John Anderson at The Catamaran Company for a current list of Today's current choices. 954-821-6450 or

With over 1000 Gemini Catamarans from Florida to around the World, sailing and for sale, I find it always a pleasure to talk to owners and review the art of fitting out a Gemini Catamaran for usage from weekend sailing to bluewater cruising. One does not have to spend 100’s and 100’s of thousands of dollars to enjoy the sea in a catamaran.

When I open the first discussions with any new customer I always like to make the comment that there will be three issues that will make the experience of purchasing a boat a positive experience.

1. The Boat. Often I find people dwelling too much as to exactly what boat they have to have to get started, obviously, it is important with a number of parameters based on the number traveling, budgets, etc., but please don’t forget that,
2. The Itinerary. Where you go, the people that you meet, the waters that you sail, are as important as the boat itself. One time, having had a bad experience can take the pleasure out of the entire adventure whether it is yours or the one you are with., And finally,
3. The Systems. I have found that to enjoy your time on the water is very much tied to having the boat meet your expectations while in use. As an example, if having an ice cube in your cocktail at Sunset is very important then refrigeration or an ice maker is real important to have aboard. Knowing what systems you want makes up the complete package then relative to a great adventure.

Gemini Catamaran Owners have taken to the idea, and I always enjoy what they have done to their boats to make them comfortable relative to systems relative to itinerary. In the photo you can see a great davit and arch arrangement to handle a good size Dinghy, Solar Panels misc. Antennas, along with Speakers for a Sound System. Additional hand holds and a nice enclosure for the weather. These are just a few of the amenities that this owner added to thier Gemini to support creating that great adventure.

So make sure that when you are looking to purchase that you balance all the issues when it comes to making just the right choice. I encourage other Gemini Owners to forward some of their creatative ideas, I would be happy to post!

We do have a full service yard here in St Augustine via our service center SouthEast Sailing and Yachts. Come visit and discuss your dreams whether you are interested in buying or further fitting out your Catamaran at the St Augustine Catamaran Center. I am, as always, available just about anytime (954) 821.6450 or

Catamaran Yards Hauls and Storage Time to Think Ahead for the Summer

Catamaran Yards Hauls and Storage, Time to Think Ahead for the Summer 2010! While everyone is off enjoying the warm weather from the Bahamas to the Keys and Caribbean it is never too early for making plans for summer storage, developing that Hurricane plan, and or look for that Hurricane Hole to nestle into if you are not planning to head to the lower Caribbean or up North for the summer.
In talking recently with our local insurance agent here in St Augustine it does seem that we, on a selective basis, might have some easing of rates for hurricane season up here in North Florida. Without a question by crossing over the Florida border into South Georgia. Here is an interesting chart of Hurricane History over the past 100 years from 1899-1999. Though it would be foolish to say that North Florida is not susceptible to Hurricanes, with the Gulf Stream heading further offshore and the Florida Peninsula exposed to the south there is the fact that North Florida and South Georgia just might be a better place to hang out for the summer season.
I would like to make the offer to discuss your catamaran needs for yards hauls and storage in North Florida here at The St Augustine Catamaran Center. Along the San Sebastian River just minutes from the ICW and Atlantic Ocean, we have both wet and dry storage facilities at very reasonable rates. We can offer a complete set of full marine services to include monthly maintenance for catamarans left in long term summer storage. Without a question the best Brokerage Service whether buying and or selling.
It is time to begin to think ahead, please feel free to call or write relative to our serivces, looking at other locations? We surely can help in most any arrangements from the East Coast through the Caribbean. You can, as always, find me just about anytime at (954) 821- 6450 or email

Don't Leave Home Without it!

Saint Augustine Catamaran Center Service Update!

They are not necessarily pretty, not a fun expense and or water toy, but when things go to crap, nice to have one and one that works. Though Catamarans are one of the safest vessels on the water today and have buoyancy built in the concept and construction there is no better insurance than having a quality life raft aboard.

Saint Augustine Catamaran Center via it’s service organization SouthEast Sailing and Yachts is an authorized sales center for Viking Life Rafts. These rafts are ISO 9650-1 certified, ISAF approved and third party verified by Bureau Veritas and Det Norske Veritas.

New Features for 2010

The fluorescent yellow canopy enhances visibility from a distance, and is easier seen in bad weather and foggy conditions. Fluorescent yellow is chosen as it is a great contrast colour to grey and dark blue - the colours of the sea. The material is further certified according to the High Visibility Norm EN471 for traffic visibility.

Two windows with curtains provide a view of the horizon which minimizes seasickness. Further, windows enhance the chance of survival as users can look out in search of rescuers without opening the liferaft and risking cooling down.

The blue inner lining calms and reduces seasickness. It is required for SOLAS liferafts and is transferred to this liferaft to enhance comfort.

The improved RescYou™ Pro has a handle placed above the boarding ramp to facilitate easy and quick boarding.

Here at Saint Augustine Catamaran Center we are happy to discuss sizing, merits of Container vs. Valise, methods of mounting and covers. Already have one? We can work with you in having her inspected. As always, you can find me just about anytime at 954-821-6450 or email

Catamaran Service and Parts

This year, 2010, I would like to dedicate as much emphasis as possible into the realm of Catamaran Service and Parts for the after sale and purchase customer. I do know that it can be quite frustrating for an owner to find that simple little piece of the plumbing system, once the problem has been found, practically impossible to find and loose days if not weeks of the use of their head, sink, or whatever due to the lack of availability of a good source for say an elbow that exists in a particular system.

It all starts at the original build process. Each manufacturer sources from year to year parts an pieces to build their yachts with the most effective and cost efficient materials as possible to bring you the best product on the market at that time. Here is what happens though, especially in off shore builds, over time, suppliers are doing the same thing. Materials change, costs change and the suppliers themselves change. Further, in today's world as building has been downsized manufacturer's find that suppliers have done the same. Parts become un-available, changes in material lists have to modified and that creates a situation where it becomes very difficult to find that simple piece of plumbing from the original builder.

So please be a bit patient with your service technician, yard manager and or parts supplier when that particular occasion arises. I hope to, in my posts for this year, offer up products that we have sourced, are available from manufacturer's and welcome any feedback via comments from you as owners as to your experiences and new found either solutions and or suppliers.
Best for 2010!, and you can find me just about anytime at 954-821-6450 and email
