Arawak's journey

In October 1997 The Arawak (then called "Rendezvous Nature") was launched in Britany in France.
Renowned skipper and builder, Pascal Quintin was at the Arawak bar in 1997 on the transatlantic "Jacques Vabres" and then the 20th edition of the "Route du Rhum" in 1998. Arawak (then Casino Val André) arrived in Pointe à Pitre (Guadeloupe) after 28 days 6hours and 12 minutes at the 27th place (See full ranking here).

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 and Alain, owners of Bluebeard Charters, bought the boat to give it a new life in order to share their passion with the public. 1 year later Arawak was brought back to its natural element after a serious makeover in the colors of Island Water World, the sponsor.

Today you board this exceptional catamaran for a full day of fun and discovery with Rodney, our professional skipper and his crew.

Possibility to take the helm and participate in maneuvers at over 20 knots (on SXM its current record is at 26 kts).

As this boat is meant to race we have registered to sail the 37th edition of the Heineken Regatta in the first weekend of March 2017.
