About the Property
Are you ready for a fun sailing holiday? This is the perfect yacht - great price
Welcome! Are you ready for a fun holiday of sailing on a Fountaine Pajot, Orana 44 catamaran? MARI’S LEONARDO has three separate cabins, each with a separate head and shower. Large double berths in each cabin will allow three (3) couples or 6 guests.
Mari’s Leonardo is the perfect yacht for captain only charters – at an amazing price. And, Captain Steve is an ASA sailing instructor. So, if you have always dreamed of getting your sailing certifications, you can combine the trip of a lifetime with a sailing school. By the end of your trip, you will be certified and ready to charter or set sail on your own!
Sail away on Mari's Leonardo for only $7,000 for six people, $6,500 for four people, or $5,500 for one couple. Email me for 'learn to sail' packages and for the cost of becoming ASA certified!
ASA Certification Rates: Guests can get ASA certification during the charter. The certification process is 7 days, two of which are on a smaller keel boat. Guests will stay on the yacht for those days. Total cost, for four people, including all fees, food and drinks (the guest share in the cooking) is $10,900. The total cost for two people is $8,900. Sailing instruction covers basic keelboat, 101, 103 and 104.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Steve has a 100 Ton USCG Captain’s license and holds an ASA Instructor’s credential and is an ASA Instructor Qualifier. Steve’s long sailing history started in Kentucky, then the West coast, where he still owns and sails his Islander 28 sloop. Having delivered boats up and down both the West and East coasts for years, he decided on catamaran sailing and had Mari’s Leonardo built in France and sailed it from the West coast of France to Annapolis, then onto the Bahamas and finally into the BVI, USVI, and West Indies chain. Steve’s charter philosophy is based on the belief that the guest’s needs are of the utmost importance and everyday aboard Leonardo he is committed to not only meeting those needs, but exceeding expectations in every way. Steve’s wife Mari, whom the boat was named after, also is an avid sailor with an ASA certification. She sometimes will accompany Steve on charter. Leonardo, the second half of this cat’s namesake was their big red-haired golden retriever… oh, Mari is also a tall red-headed gal. Steve and Mari are both experienced in the service industry. Mari is presently a flight attendant and Steve is a semi-retired entrepreneur of a NW real estate management firm. Both have been sailing for many years and now have realized a new lifestyle where they share the fun of sailing and teaching with others. Steve and Mari extend a warm welcome and eagerly await the opportunity to deliver the most, fun-in-the-sun sailing adventures.

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
