Description

Dream Lover is a Roger Simpson designed lightweight Catamaran, built (along with 3 others) in Trinidad. She is fast and safe, comfortable and easy to sail. She is an ideal cruising boat, very spacious with a large salon and cockpit and, of course, plenty of room to chill on the nets upfront. There are (3) three double guests cabins.  All cabins have extensive storage, including hanging lockers and wash-basins. The cabins are naturally ventilated – a special design feature allows air to blow through even in rain.

She is quick (speeds often exceed 10 knots) and, with her shallow draught, can anchor very close inshore to a beach – great for small children. Solar Panels and a Wind-Generator mean you rarely need to run the engine for  battery power.

There’s a large galley – with fridge and chiller box and a separate freezer/cooler for drinks and ice. A barbecue hangs over the back of the cockpit – nice for grilling the fresh tuna/mahi-mahi/wahoo you just caught.

You can easily fit 8 people to eat around the saloon table, and there’s a large desk/chart-table area for computers and charging mobile phones or  iPods (Wi-Fi is often available over the water in Caribbean anchorages). Mobile phone coverage is extensive – as in Europe.

There’s a comfortable shower (with hot water) - plus an external shower point on the starboard side scoop, where a drop-down ladder makes it easy to get in and out of the water.

Dream Lover is usually based in Trinidad or Tobago and her usual cruising area extends all the way up the S.E. Caribbean islands – Barbados, Grenada, St. Vincent, St Lucia, Dominica, and the French Islands – Martinique & Guadeloupe.  She can pick up guests easily at any of these, so there are a lot of options for flying in or out.

The Crew

Nigel aka “Epi” is Trinidadian but has lived most of life in Tobago where he could enjoy the easy access to the Sea and the windsurfing & kitesurfing spots. From being the captain of a fishing boat to windsurfing instructor, He is a “jack of all trade” at Sea. His extensive experience in windsurfing, kite boarding, surfing will always advise you of the best route to take depending on weather condition. It is hard not to appreciate such a fun loving and mellow character...
