A Huge Success at TrawlerFest


The first TrawlerFest University of 2011 was a huge success. We had the pleasure of meeting so many trawler enthusiasts in all of our classes including one special couple from AZ. These land locked wannabe cruisers are on a one year plan to learn more about boats before they buy…or should I say WERE on a one year plan! After spending 2 days with us Building Cruising Confidence As A Couple, attending a seminar on Boat Buying Basics presented by Curtis Stokes, then walking the show…Poof! They just made on offer on their dream boat. We sea trial it for them next week then hop aboard with them for a shake down cruise. 

Registration for May TrawlerFest Anacortes is now open-BUT! Building Cruising Confidence As A Couple is SOLD OUT! If you missed this class and want to learn more about living the dream with Captain Chris Yacht Services please schedule time aboard SANDY HOOK, our 44 foot Trawler in Florida. Spend a few days or a week living and learning aboard with us. Imagine you and your mate Living the Dream….cruising for an entire week with your own personal professional captains guiding you each step of the way! Here are a few of our latest trips aboard SANDY HOOK:

  • Two for Trawler Training. Here’s a quick look at a terrific trip with two girlfriends who wanted to get up to pace with their mates.
