Today we set off to view what seems like the perfect cruising catamaran for our needs, but there is a GIANT "but".
After the searching everywhere for the past month we've narrowed our search down to an Owners Version and we're on the hunt. Today we're checking out a Leopard 43, Lagoon 410 and a Fontaine Pajot Belize 43.

She clearly has no idea what elements of a cruising yacht are more important. The realtor obviously shows his practical knowledge and points out more crucial items, or lack thereof (in a humble manner).

Repairs and maintenance are almost always overlooked. Broken, masts, rudders have filled the oceans with millions of dollars of sailboats. A lot of the hardware, electrical, hoses, etc seem to be questionable on a lot of boats. You really need an expert to protect yourself, sadly not everyone is your friend.

While the first boat may have been 150k over.. I would with the sails and rigging, look to get a nice discount for that because it will have to be replaced at some point.. I would also put in an offer which included that detail.. maybe 120k or so above the budget.. that is taking 30k off the price.. so you take out a loan for that 120k.. while it may not be ideal, you are getting the boat you want.. there is no bones about that.. Your enjoyment will be so much more, making you both so much more happier.. and you might figure out a way to perhaps make a little extra money using a laptop on the boat with some internet type income.. or some type job you can normally do from home.. The first boat in comparison to the second.. is like night and day..

Also the idea of being patient has some rewards, it also has some draw backs as well.. known as, if you snooze you loose.. because someone will make an offer on that first boat and it depends on how motivated the seller might be.. I would make a low ball offer and let them know its a standing offer.. so you can be both patient and have in an offer..

So the 2 smaller heads don’t have separate shower stalls? You have to pick up the faucet from the sink and stand there in front of the toilet to shower? How doable is that?

Hey man, I really love you guys and your attitude. My GF and I may be setting sail sometime soon, and I have been looking at some low to mid 40' Catana boats, mid 90's to mid 2000's. We want the speed factor, which your Leopard seems to have. I know you are bombarded with these comments daily, but do you have any insight? Supposedly Catanas can do the speed of the apparent wind. Is there a reason you did not choose a Catana? Broadblue also seems to be a nice combo of quality, room, and speed.

@Gone with the Wynns Great to know, no broadblue. There is this one for $300k that seemed nice, quality build, but I am going to save time (possible headaches)... So the Catana I keep hearing about is the 471 (looks like the 2006), has clocked 25 knots speed, and right now a couple are priced at $360-400k (one in FLA for $360k), with 2 others at upper 400's. www.yachtworld.com/boats/Sail/Catamaran/Catana/471 Your Leopard 43 also looks very nice and I hope it is treating you well. May I ask your top speed sailing and average-ish if decent wind of 10+ knots? Maybe someday we can all meet. :)

Older Catana's are great. There is a specific year and size that's known for it's quality and speed. I can't remember exactly anymore but I think it was the 50' from the early 2000's. We considered the Catana but quickly realized they were out of our budget at $100k+ more expensive than our Leopard. We considered Broadblue but we were told to steer clear by several people that we trust, so I can't give you any insight on them. Good luck, there are a lot of options out there.

Try hurricane damage boats. Find high end boat repair. One way to knock price down.

I think you should take some sailing lessons to learn the terminology and how to sail a boat before you own one.

You're not looking for a boat . . . you are looking for a house that floats. You call lines "ropes" you call a stateroom a "bedroom". You didn't ask about anchors, navigation equipment or anything that makes it a sea-going vessel. And the BIG BUT is your worst enemy. You really have no idea what you are doing.

And yet they've sailed the Pacific on their own, and are now in French Polynesia. Most people never leave their home waters, so pffffttt to you.

Our experience with Just Catamarans was NOTHING like your experience. We even tried to reach out to Kent, but never heard back. Really, our experience was pretty terrible. We are happy with our catamaran, but the entire process was a disaster - we're just getting some service done by Just Catamarans, it has been bumpy, but we are patiently waiting to see... Did you guys get sponsored by Just Catamarans?
Explorking 8 months ago
Oh, look, it's a reply - so honored, I know you two get too many comments to even read. Yes, the "get a quote before you say yes" bit is oh-so-true. We clued into that last week. It is pretty difficult to get a quote, just because they are so busy, but oh well. I'm sure that, by the end of it all, we'll be happy and get on our way. We have Maz Ocean coming by on Monday to program our AIS, if they do a good job, we may have them help us with some other bits. Keep up being awesome! K

Bummer guys. Our videos were not sponsored or paid for. They are genuinely our experiences. We shared our Just Catamarans Service experience in another video. It wasn't all perfect but we're generally happy with the service we received. The biggest takeaway was "GET QUOTES BEFORE SAYING YES TO ANYTHING." This video you've commented on covers shopping, and that process was about as perfect as one could expect...especially since we knew (almost) nothing before we walked in the door.
