Thank you for considering us for your next catamaran sailing vacation. We do require that you fill in an up-to-date resume upon booking a catamaran in BVI. We do promote pre-approval and if in doubt fill in our resume and hit submit. Our Base Manager will look, and we should let you know within 48 hours. If we feel that you resume might be lacking in certain areas, we do request that you take a check-out-skipper for the day at your expense. The Catamaran Company priority is to ensure you have a safe charter and an enjoyable one! Please ask any questions by emailing charter@catamarans.com or calling 1800-262 -0308

We will require suitable prior SKIPPERING experience on a COMPARABLY SIZE VESSEL (e.g same size or bigger vessel as the one you wish to charter) and for a COMPARABLE journey (ex: more than a couple continuous days/nights skippering experience); skippering experience on a smaller vessel or crewing experience on comparable vessel WILL NOT QUALIFY YOU. Boat Certification or License will not automatically qualify you. This is especially true of our largest cats like the Lagoon 500's, Lagoon 50. and 52's for which you will be required STRONG experience.
