For most vacationers, it's all about the destination. For true cruisers, it's all about smelling the roses along the way.
I remember back in the 60's when I took my family down the intercoastal to Florida on a 30' sailboat we were liviing on at the time. We would leave one marinea at 8:00 or so in the morning. By 11:00, a bunch of high speed power boats would roar by leaving us rolling in their wake with the shore line pounded and eroded by their wash.
We would be pointing out everything from turtles to alligators to the kids. Different kinds of plants (we had a book!) and in general took in the ever changing landscape. We imagined what it would be like to live in these pleasant looking homes along the waterway. What their life ashore must be like? Wondered how they made a living in these often far-flung communities?
By 3:30, 4:00 we would pull into the next stop--usually a marina, but often a pleasant side anchorage. Those power boats that roared by, were already at the marina. In fact had been sitting there for hours. They were loud, inebriated and raucous.
We docked as far away as we could and settled in with the kids to barbecue dinner and have a nice glass of wine while watching the sun set.
It was from this simple little adventure that the slogan, "Getting there is half the fun", was born!

What one customer relayed to us recently sums up our "Team
What this customer said, about sums up how
commissioning can be done right...
We are now halfway into
our first week aboard Coexist and couldn't be
happier. Our experience with Bay Yacht from
pre-sale thru commissioning and after sale support has been seamless, thanks to you and everyone we
have dealt with from Bay Yacht from start to finish.
You made our purchase of the Jeanneau 44i one of the
best purchasing experiences we have known. We
only hope that you will be around for our next
purchase ... 20 years from now!
We would especially like
to give a big hand to Mark Sims for his project
management of the commissioning process. From the
first time we met him, we felt a real comfort level
in our decision to purchase our boat from Bay Yacht.
Mark and his group worked tirelessly to get
our boat fully commissioned in as timely a manner as
possible, considering the rainy season we have
experienced and his other commissioning obligations.
Mark has been totally upfront with us from Day 1 and
has been a pleasure to work with. His knowledge and
experience really helped us make informed decisions
about equipment and add-ons that we were
considering. I have worked with many
project managers in varied industries throughout my
career and can honestly say that Mark is one of, if
not the best, I have worked with. At our
turnover/walk-thru, Mark explained every piece of
equipment and system and patiently answered all of
our questions (and there were many). We have been
relying on the file box Mark put together with all
of our systems instructions and warranty information
as our "cheat sheet". As we find punch list
items and relay them to Mark, he or one of his crew
are here before we can blink.

Up to 5 computers get internet access for the price of one!
We use it on our motorhome, but will now use it on our boat. One

others within 100' can tap into. Also available with certain phone models
like the Palm Pre from Verizon or Sprint.

Important options we offer our clients--based
Water filters.We are installing fresh water
filters so you can get the cleanest, best tasting water right
from a galley tap. It won't be necessary to lug on cases of
bottled water anymore!
Safety and security. When you leave the boat to go exploring or to your favorite
restaurant--do you worry about the stuff you left behind? With
most boats, an intruder can simply walk aboard and have access
to your personal stuff or valuable boat equipment that you are
responsible for. Now, we are installing heavy duty combination
locks and a keyed burglar alarm so the entire crew can have your
custom combination when they individually come back--but
intruders will move on to the next boat not so well protected.
Finally, a smelly subject. Do you object to the inevitable smells you find aboard? Whether
it's the head, bilge or cooking odors--it doesn't matter. Our
Ozone generator will clean the air before you board, and our on
board generator will keep your boat fresh while you're cruising.

“Well, my complements to the designers! I'm looking at the 3/2 layout and we love the fact that there are only 2 heads to maintain/clean. The galley looks sizeable with the ability to have upper cupboards on the port and forward sides (aft side of galley looks like it will have a lowered section where the helm floor takes over-no room for upper cubs there).
A privacy door to the owners cabin is a must have feature for us. I don't like that the door opens into the cabin and blocks the entrance to the bedroom. It would constantly be in the way. Seems like it could either open the opposite way or be a slider that goes into the wall by the locker to the aft of the current door.
The helm design may just be the best yet. A nice mixture of the small pop-up helms and the fly bridge helms. I see how there are a few more steps to get to the passenger part of the helm where they can sit under the hard top and duck to walk under it. The helmsman can stand anywhere in his area. Everyone is protected from the boom under the hard top (which provides a great place for more solar). Plus the designers managed to get the boom low enough with this design that people can actually get to it without getting a ladder out. Nice! Great compromise.
I see the advantages in a sea way of having the dinghy up on the deck as shown. But I'm curious as to how it gets there. My goal is to have a simple system to raise the dinghy out of reach of night time pirates after finding our way home~hic~after a few rum drinks. “

Annapolis, Welcome to Fountaine Pajot Country!
(The largest display of Fountaine Pajots for sale and charter in America!)
We know Fountaine Pajots. We have sold more Helia 44's than any other dealer world wide. We are the most expereienced dealer--world wide. Currently we have boats coming in all the time. We have the Helia 44 in stock and the first 3 cabin owner's boat in America at our dock in Annapolis. See them. Experience them (Available for sailing courses, charter and Try-before-you-buy!)
Here's what one client had to say in his recent blog...
"Our Hélia, Fat Iguana, is scheduled to leave port in La Rochelle, France on her trans-Atlantic journey early next week. It's about a 5-6 week sail to Annapolis for commissioning here.
Why did we decide on the Hélia?
We're catamaran people. We are in to comfort. We don't want our sailing to be like camping. Catamarans have more space, more amenities, they sail flat so you're not leaning way over just to stand up all the time. There's less rocking & rolling in anchorages at night. You can set things on the counter without them falling off all the time.
We looked at new and used. For us, the idea of buying new and putting the boat in charter for several years before we take it over full-time makes the most financial sense. After getting on a few catamarans, we decided that about a 44 foot boat was a good size for us for eventual full-time living.
Realistically, 44 foot new boats in that range come down to Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon, and Leopard. There are others, but most are either "custom" boats, home built boats, or very expensive. The three I mention above are the big "production" boats -- the Fords & Chevys.
We sailed on a Lagoon & FP. We never sailed the Leopard, but have been on one at the Annapolis boat show. We were actually supposed to do our first cruise on a Leopard 44, but it wasn't delivered in time. As it turns out, we weren't really impressed with layout of the boat. We didn't think much of the forward cockpit that is a major feature of that boat and makes the saloon quite a bit smaller.
We did sail on a Lagoon 440. While we liked the boat, it's a very heavy boat and we weren't impressed with the performance under sail. While we kind of liked the flybridge helm station while sailing -- it did make it impossible for the helmsman to interact with people on other areas of the boat (cockpit & saloon).
We then sailed the FP Orana 44 -- the version before the Hélia. Loved it. Loved the boat, loved the interior layout. MUCH better performance under sail than the Lagoon. We had heard great things about FP's new design, the Hélia. We got to see one in person at Annapolis and fell in love. It's a fantastic boat with performance said to be equal or better than the Orana.
We found the boat that we feel is perfect for us.
We thought a lot...we bought it!!
I know we're going to be thrilled with this boat...
Can't wait to get it!! Dave H., OK

B.K. Writes: "After reading Eric Smith’s “good cat bad cat” (which I respect) I would appreciate if you would tell me what
metric bridge clearance is acceptable to satisfy the elimination of underdeck slamming." –B.K.
Bruce, Thanks for your note. The bridge deck clearance issue is not a stand alone issue. If you look through the re‐entry hatch (under the boat) while
the boat is at speed, in waves, you will see that there are two inner bow waves that converge... Or read the entire detailed web page, Good Cat, Bad Cat here.

Q. What's the story on the new wood furniture used in Jeanneaus.
A. A number of people have commented on how much they liked the old way of doing “real” teak interiors.
Real teak, on virtually all boats, simply consisted of a veneer finish. That is, the teak log was rolled and a thin layer of veneer peeled off and glued to a marine plywood substrate to create “teak” panels, which were then made into furniture.
The problem with this is that the teak forests are not sustainable. As a result, the quality of teak available varied widely and there was much waste, and a marginal finish on the final panels manufactured. In addition, many governments,
including most European governments, started imposing strict restrictions on the importation of these unsustainable woods.
The path many companies took was to simply use some other sustainable wood veneer—cherry, birch, etc. This, again, resulted in inconsistent finishes.
Jeanneau -- The leading builder of innovative new models. Many now with 360 degree docking, and all sheets led to the helm, not just the cockpit.
how one Gal made the transition from Motor home to a sailboat...
Eventually, she chartered a catamaran in the
Caribbean and that was better, but, this hands on Gal found that it
lacked the "feel" of a "real" sailboat. Read the rest here.

There's one thing the Government continues to do right--offer
incentives to small business that drive the economy, and job market.
Our Boat as a business™ Program offers you an opportunity to set up
your own business and take advantage of these government incentives. 70%
of U.S. Businesses are small businesses. Why shouldn't you get the same
advantages that 1,000's of others are already getting?
You say that home based business is one of the few legal tax
shelters left. What does that mean? Sandy Botkin: First of all, understand something: We have two tax
systems in this country. [Many] times people think there's one for rich
and one for poor. That is a huge myth. What the systems are is one for
employees--people who don't know the rules, which are designed to take
your wealth--and one for self-employed people, [the rules of] which are
designed to create economic growth. The reason for that is, small
business generates over 70 percent of the jobs in this country. So
Congress passes good tax laws. And there are good tax laws--let me
emphasize this--for small business .

Bay Yacht Agency has an incredible success story with over 690 successful investors accomplishing their individual goals to date.
I'm constantly asked to explain the program in a few minutes over the phone. I just can't. I've tried. It's simple, but there are many details you need to understand. There are differences between programs and different programs work for different people--you need to find out what works for you--I'll explain.
There is no question you can be successful. There is no question that you can have total flexibility as to where you want to keep the boat and how much you can use it. You can have the boat exactly the way you want it, and set it up for business now, and personal use later.
To be fair, to yourself, you need a good understanding of this approach. You don't need the advise of a bunch of people who have limited or no experience. You need to spend 20 min to an hour with the founder of the original private owner, Boat as a business plan--Eric Smith. When you get done, you'll know if this program is for you or not--and, you might be surprised to find that this is right down your alley--even if you hate the idea of someone else using your boat, or if you're concerned about maintenance, or limited choices--we'll debunk the myths and share the challenges.
You can truly own a new boat for your long term personal use in 1/4 the time for 1/4 the cost. You can't afford not to know. Sign up for one of our upcoming webinars here.
With our new Sun n Fun Cruising affiliation we are continuously adding more choices. Places for you to keep your boat or swap charters with other owners.
Sun n Fun just finished the Paris and Dusseldorf boat shows and will have many exciting announcements to come by the time of the Miami boat show Feb. 14-18th. Meet us there and find out what all the excitement is about.
NOTICE: The Bush tax cuts, regarding boats as a business, have been extended for one more year.
RE: Tax planning for 2013 Several important points:
The newly passed "American Taxpayer Relief Act" or ATRA is now in place for 2013. (Notice from our CPA)
"The act also extended many business tax credits and other provisions...The increased expensing amounts under Sec. 179 are extended through 2013. The availability of an additional 50% first-year bonus depreciation (Sec. 168(k)) was also extended for one year by the act. It now generally applies to property placed in service before Jan. 1, 2014 (Jan. 1, 2015, for certain property with longer production periods)."
Note also additional advantages.
1. The Top tax bracket is now higher, with some deductions eliminated making tax advantages even more important.
2. The Boat business tax advantages are "above the line" This means that it will lower the amount subject to AMT. With the AMT now, permanently having an inflation adjuster, beginning immediately, this is even more meaningful.
3. Alert: boat sales are through the roof right now and deliveries are getting later and later. Get in before you can't even get a boat this year--even now you may not get a boat until fall or late fall
Many other tax increases will be going into effect, including payroll tax, capital gains, etc. Bottom line is your taxes are going up, but the good news is that by setting your boat up as a business you can offset some of the effect, and convert taxes you would normally pay, into equity.
For your information, I am Eric Smith, the owner of BYA and
started the program back in the 70's. Since then, I have helped over 694
people successfully set their boat up as a business where tax advantages
and income reduced or eliminated their costs and they had their boat
professionally maintained as a part of the package so they could use it
care-free as often as they like.
Chief Justice Leaonard Hand said, “Over and over again courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs so as to make taxes as low as possible. Everybody does so, rich or poor, and do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more taxes than the law demands. Taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions.”

Here's a unique new approach.
The market is slow, right? Buyers are only buying at rock bottom prices?

overcome the difficulties of the current market--and get you into a new
boat for less!

As a result of the boat show, we have developed a list of potential
Great deals: Here's a totally secret list... These boats will be be well below market price
because we are subsidizing the sale price in order to make a new boat
sale. These owners have agreed to have us pre-certify their boat and
address any corrective issues in advance. They are motivated because
they want to buy a new boat--and if they act now, they can get a new
boat at a lower price now, than later. They are paying a greatly reduced
commission and can pass on the savings. At the end of the day, they are
offering an extremely attractive price. We're taking it a step further
and throwing in a part of our commission on a new boat, in order to
facilitate a quick sale.
Reserve your boat now, but pay for it in the spring!

Life is short. Here's what Jimmy Buffett said iin his book, "A pirate looks at fifty"
"Fun is about as good a habit as there is, especially when your search for it becomes tempered with the wisdom of time on the water. The destination is not that rewarding if you have not had the experience of the journey. My walkabout place cannot be yours. Your walkabout place cannot be somebody elses. You have to find your own."
The universal question we all ask as we see a capable offshore cruiser leaving the dock is, "Who are they, and where are they headed?" Become the adventurer, not the one left standing on the dock...
