Sarasota was Great -- Time to take a look around the Keys

22 April

We have just finished the Sarasota Boat Show at Capt. Jacks Marina.  We want to thank everyone who stopped by the Grampstr's Pride while at the show, The Grampstr's Pride is the latest model of Endeavour Catamaran's TrawlerCat 48 one of 3 Endeavour on display at the show!   The show was great success! Endeavour signed contracts for a new 48 and 40 and GECCharters received a lot of interest for our newly added charter locations to both Ft. Myers and St Petersburg.

Sarasota itself is a great destination to visit because the Ringling Brothers Circus Museum is there and is one of our clients favorite stops when chartering out of St. Petersburg. We are planning a "no rush exploratory cruise to find charter locations for future trips for our charter guests."   We will be taking this opportunity before we start our first Grampstr's Pride transition cruise. 



The Captain's Blog

As we said on our about page we have two types of blogs. The first:  Adventures. This is all about our travels around Florida.  It encapsulates our favorite part about yachting and the fun parts associated with boating and chartering a beautiful trawler.  The second: The Captain's blog. This will be all about the options available for purchasing a charter, particularly our journey from Grampstr's Endeavour to the Grampstr's Pride.

We will also be discussing the equipment choices associated with the building of Grampstr's pride and all of the fun we had during the process.

Finally, we will also post blogs about different issues that arise with boat ownership.  As we said we want to make this blog a great place for prospective buyers of trawlers.  

We also hope you will take an opportunity to charter with us and learn about the great opportunities and lifestyle yachting has to offer.
