Arawak Racing Catamaran on St. Maarten


In October 1997 The Arawak (then called "Rendezvous Nature") was launched in Bretagne in France.
Renowned skipper and builder, Pascal Quintin was at Arawak's helm in 1997 on the transatlantic "Jacques Vabres" and at the 6th edition of the "Route du Rhum" in 1998.

Sold in Guadeloupe after the race the boat then returned a few years later on a building site in St Martin. Two sailing and racing enthusiasts Dominique, (Bluebeard charters owners), bought the boat to give it a new life in order to share their passion with the public.

Today Arawak is back to its natural element after a serious makeover in the colors of Island Water World, its new sponsor. Now you can board this exceptional catamaran for fun with Rodney, our professional skipper and his crew.
