Hello! My name is Cassidy Bulthuis. I am a very responsible, quiet, and clean 21-year-old film student living in West Palm Beach. I am looking to live aboard a boat this summer (May to August). I am willing to pay up to $300/month in rent, along with doing any regular cleaning and simple maintenance tasks. I have no pets and do not have parties. I will be in regular communication with you about any issues or happenings in your marina or on your boat. I am willing to live aboard any sailboat, catamaran, houseboat, or yacht in Palm Beach County.
Thank you for your consideration!

44 years old experienced man is looking for an opportunity to sail long distance. I’ve got 5 years sailing experience mostly single handed (east coast of UK and one North Sea crossing) last year 2017 on my ex boat Morgan Giles 30 which I sold last winter.  I consider myself as a competent skipper with some offshore experience, and willing to learn more. Except vhf radio I do not have any other formal certificate regarding sailing as here in UK not required. Can do most of boat maintenance work as I fully restored my former boat myself. I’m particularly interested in round the world sailing visiting remote places with open schedule but can be shorter ones too minimum 3 month.

I can also stay with the boat if you need to go back to your country for whatever reason for any length of time. I will not only look after the boat but also carry out all the necessary maintenance in your absence so when you are back all will be ready for a new adventure.

At the moment I live and work in UK. I hold British and Slovakian passport.
Flexible with time and available from August 18 to till whatever time it takes.
I pay my travel expenses and support myself during the voyage and between. You pay the boat expenses.

My personality is easy going, and unless you are a dictator we will get on well together.
Prefer if the boat is not overcrowded ideally just two or three of us.

Can join you in Europe or USA but wouldn’t mind to travel further if it is an interesting opportunity.

Captain/Instructor/Lucky Sailor in Sept. 2018 in Philippines/Malaysia

I am currently looking to purchase a 45-ish foot steel hull sailboat in Malaysia or the Philippines (possibly Australia) in September. I am looking for someone to assist with evaluating possible purchases, to fly to inspect boats of interest, to captain the boat and, most importantly, to teach me and my wife how to sail and, more importantly, anchor the boat. If you are an experienced sailor who has always dreamed of sailing southeast Asia, and you are interested in living that dream, I’d be interested in talking to you.

What’s in it for me? Your expertise in the boat purchase, learning from you, someone to explore paradise with when my wife gets tired of me and, hopefully, someone who becomes a dear friend who can visit again and again.

What’s in it for you? An all expense-paid sailing vacation to paradise, wonderful company and great students, and, making a new dear friend who has a boat in SE Asia.

I’m not looking for a professional captain who wants to help me attain a certification. I don’t really care about the certification at this time (or should I?) I just want to learn how to safely sail, anchor, and maintain the boat so I can grow as a sailor. I’m looking for someone who is interested in fulfilling their dream and who wants to help me fulfil my dream. Someone who wants to pay it forward. Someone who believes that when one teaches, two learn.

A little about my wife and me. I’m 51 yrs and American. My wife is 38 yrs and Chinese. I learned to sail when I was 8 years of age, was a windsurfing instructor in college, occasionally rent a small cat or laser, and have never sailed a boat anywhere near the size of the boat I’m looking to buy. My wife has never sailed, she wants to learn, and she’s smart enough to learn quickly. She’s also a great hostess and will make sure we are well fed. Our plan is to relocate to Malaysia or the Philippines and live the dream.

If this is something that peaks your interest, shoot me a response and let me know a little about yourself and your interest in joining us. Let’s start the discussion.
