This Cape Cod couple had the chance to do what most people can only dream of doing – sell their house, buy a boat and move aboard to become CRUISERS.
Even better, they are now SNOWBIRDS!
The boat of their dreams was a Selene 48 Ocean Trawler, and lucky for them their son found one while he was cruising the Bahamas this winter. Good job son! The former owners returned to the US putting the boat on the market and Doug & Michele were quick to make the purchase. This boat was perfect- clean , maintained well and up to date on all service. It was in move-in and cruise-away condition.
We worked with Doug and Michele for a few days to help them transition from their smaller boat to this larger TRAWLER, learning below deck systems, “get home” engine, power management and basic operation of the single engine boat with bow AND STERN THRUSTERS. What a joy to maneuver!
The days flew by while we all had fun with their new boat and then, it happened… they said goodbye. We wished them Bon Voyage and off they went! The adventure begins.
We can’t wait to see them next season as they return to sunny Florida with so many stories to share! In the meantime click here for an update of their adventures.
