In 2018, we established ETC Excursions, LLC. in order for us to charter our 2018 Fontaine Pajot Saona 47 catamaran named S/V Go Big Oar Go Home while we were winding down our careers & preparing for retirement.

S/V Go Big Oar Go Home debuted in the 2018 Annapolis Sail Boat Show and is currently available for charter.  We offer our guests with an opportunity to create lasting memories with both family and friends.  

S/V Go Big Oar Go Home was designed to be a full-time live aboard sailing catamaran & not just your typical charter boat.  

S/V Go Big Oar Go Home is currently available for charter via captain or bareboat charters in Stock Island / Key West, FL. after spending three seasons in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

To learn more about S/V Go Big Oar Go Home, go to www.GoBigOarGoHome.com.

Over the last four seasons, we have learned a lot (good & bad) about chartering our catamaran.

We are more than happy to share our lessons learned on the following:

     - Business Yacht Ownership

     - Yacht Commissioning Process

     - Dos and Don’ts when outfitting a charter boat

     - Selecting a Charter Management Company

     - What Yacht Brokers don’t tell you about chartering your Yacht

     - Annual Cost / Maintenance of owning a charter boat

Please reach out to us at Info@Chase-The-Dream.com with your questions.  We are more than happy to share our experiences.
