What can we help you with?
We draw from depth and breadth of cruising and professional experience to offer thoughtful guidance unique to individual circumstances.
Early planning stages: reality check on big picture planning, what it’s really like, realistic budgeting (what’s online is largely useless in our view), prioritizing skills tasks to depart, and common pitfalls to avoid on the path to your dream
While actively boat shopping: critical insight to right-size the boat budget, considerations for different boat types suited to your specific cruising intentions; we also help make you a smarter buyer, both to evaluate listings, educate on pitfalls to avoid in purchase process; we’re able to provide referrals to trusted brokers and surveyors
Countdown to departure: when you’re marching towards a date, the pace of big decisions is stressful! We’re a good pressure release valve, able to help shortcut decisions with balanced guidance so you can avoid refit woes, manage safety/security concerns, and plan for a successful transition from land life
Post-departure: we support active cruisers with big-picture guidance on routing strategy, weather insight, regional planning, maintenance troubleshooting, new equipment, and more
How does it work?
Monthly engagement starts with a video call (up to 90 minutes); we try to have at least a couple of those per month, with mail Q&A between. You are encouraged to email questions we can respond to between calls. Calls can be 8am – 8pm our time, any day of the week.
Coaching clients are invited to a closed Facebook group that includes additional resources, training tools, and discussion of real-time concerns.
To get started, start by returning this brief questionnaire (Word
) to inform us about your experience, goals, and concerns. Contact us for availability. Submit payment via PayPal
