Default Boats in St. Maarten

These are a few of the boats we saw on our trip to St. Maarten last month. Just got around to downloading and printing them.

1) a Nitro, about 38 feet, had Martin Offshore on the stern, seen at Tintamarre
2) a Donzi 39ZSC moving along well while we were on the catamaran Golden Eagle
3) the fast catamaran Thriller, holds about 40 people for a quick ride around the island

1) The view from our condo with a Cig sitting on the lift across the lagoon.
2) An Apache, 40+ feet with triples sitting on a lift behind one of our favorite bars, Peg Leg Pub
3) This 1996 Top Gun used to be a part of the business Offshore Sunsations. They went out of business. On our last day, we went by to get a picture and met the new owner, Steve Johnson. He was replacing the wiring and has put in new 500s. The previous owner went through 6 motors in less than a year. Ran it hard!!

We kept trying to figure out how we could bring both boats down, live on the Sea Ray and take people on tours with the Fountain......but back to reality.

On the French side? I know what you mean about wanting to sell it all and go back. I have been trying to work out the business plan since I left.
