Join Couchsurfing to see Gary’s full profile.
Hello, I'm Gary the owner and Captain of the catamaran, SAPPHIRE. Sapphire is a sailing catamaran with four private cabins (bedrooms), two private heads (bathrooms), and a full galley (kitchen). I sail this boat on trips around the Caribbean and the southeast United States. During breaks from trips, I host available cabins to Couch Surfers.
***Currently, the catamaran is not on a dock, but an anchored mooring ball in Miami until the end of May 2021. Then a two-week dry dock in Key Largo before sailing to Bermuda and Maine for the summer trip.***
Miami is the home port for the yacht but we try to keep moving to fun scenic locations. Often there are free cabins aboard during trips, and at different locations while docked. Next year (2021), we will be sailing to Bermuda for carnival, NYC for the 4th of July, then many other locations along the east coast of the United States. The boat has a website that will list dates of ports, availability, and special events. Welcome aboard!
