Stan and I were living aboard our 46′ Fountaine Pajot Bahia Catamaran in Ventura, CA when we decided that instead of finishing the Catamaran to go off cruising, we really wanted different living accommodations. That started our slow winding path that finally brought us to Masterplan. We first had to sell our Catamaran as we certainly did not want to be a two boat owner. That of course took longer then we had hoped but it did sell in August 2011. During that time we looked at boats and decided that a Trawler was the way to go. I think the full size refrigerator, a real couch and walk around bed was all that we needed to see. We actually fell in love with “Kingdom”, a 58′ Hatteras LRC that ended up selling too quickly. Many boats (and many miles looking at boats) later we decided that a 58′ Hatteras LRC was still our love. A few road trips up the CA coast and a road trip from CT. to Ft. Lauderdale added to the twist and turns of this process. We packed up all of our stuff into 2 Pods in November of 2011 and started another road trip from CA to FL. We do need to thank Judy Waldman of JW Yachts as the guiding force behind us and shudder to think of all the mistakes we might have made without her steady hand. Once aboard Masterplan we knew she was the “One”.
Here we are on the Sea Trial for Masterplan
So now the fun begins as we plan a course and see where the path continues to take us…..
