This section is a list of all of the best catamaran sailing blogs (text and video) that we have enjoyed. Most of them document the travels of multihull owners on their yachts, but there is some great technical resource in here too, some of which is specific to a make of boat and some of which is general sailing and maintenance advice. You can also follow our sailing blog, of course. If you would liek to be feautured in this section, contact us!
1. Escapade – Blog
If you can stomach a blog that is going to make you green with envy, then fire up Escapade Sailing which covers Jonathan and Dawn Pooley´s travels onboard their Outremer 51: Escapade. There are some fantastic shots of the South Pacific on this blog.
2. Sailing Fiesta – Blog
Sailing Fiesta is a great account of a journey of one man and his dog around the British Isles on a Prout Event 34. I enjoyed this one! The first catamaran I ever sailed in was a Prout Event, well, other than a Hobie Cat I mean.
3. Sail Puffin, Sail Wilding – Blog
These are great blogs. I first started reading Sail Wilding which is all about Doug and Robins´s travels on their Outremer 5X. There´s some great technical resources in here as Doug is a stickler for detail. Anyway, they sold Wilding and are now cruising around on Puffin, an Outremer 4X. That´s great news for the rest of us, as we get 2 sailing blogs for the price of one! If you are ever in the market for an Outremer 4X, or 45 for that matter, make sure you read Puffin´s build specifications and options list.
4. Ticket to Ride – Blog
The owners previously had a 2013 Fountaine Pajot 44′ catamaran but they swapped it for more speed. A lot more speed! All of the posts on the catamaran build are very interesting (eg some of the 2018 posts).
5. Moonwave – Gunboat 60 – Blog
If you have ever wondered what it´s like to live and sail around the world on a Gunboat 60, then you´ll need to check out the Moonwave blog that is run by Sophie who crews on this catamaran. Follow their travels in Asia, the Caribbean, the US and Asia.
5. Parlay Revival – Lagoon 450F – Vlog
These vlogs follow Colin Macrae who is a Superyacht Engineer on his travels on a Lagoon 450F called Parlay. Colin bought his boat after it had been smashed up in Hurricane Irma and has been fixing it up ever since as well as rescuing a few dogs at the same time. The boat looks great now and they are on their way to New Zealand via Panama. We teamed up with these guys and did a Parlay Revival Review on their Lagoon 450 in our Owner´s section. Check it out if you are thinking of buying or chartering a L450.
6. Sailing La Vagabonde – Outrememer 45 – Vlog
Well, we had to mention Riley, Elayna and Lenny didn`t we? These guys have done so well – they started off in a monohull in Greece where they met, and now they are cruising around on an Outremer 45 with a stowaway onboard: Lenny. Watch the first video and the last video, and see how much their video shooting skills have developed. But what am I telling you that for, you have probably watched all the episodes anyway.
7. Trade Wind Adventures – Catana 472 – Blog
If you like Catanas, check out Trade Wind Adventures which is all about Annie Gardner & Eric Witte´s travels on “el Gato”, a 2000 Catana 472.
8. DefyLife – 1977 Snowgoose 35 – Blog
Follow Carl Michael as he sails his 1977 Prout Snowgoose 35 “Jade” around the world on DefyLife. This blog has some great posts on how he fixes up his boat for the longer passages. On 31st December 2020, Carl was picked up by the US Coast Guard about 100nm off Puerto Rico after being adrift for a day and a half.
9. The Sailing Family Outremer 51 – Blog
Seth, Elizabeth and their 3 boys on “Archer”, a Ferrari red Outremer 51. They helped us out on a review on the 51 (a good read if you are researching these boats). Head to the The Sailing Family – mostly they do vlogs of their trip around the world.
9. TulasEndlessSummer – Vlog
Billy, Sierra and Jetty (their dog) cruising around on a Crowther Spindrift 40. Most of their content is on Youtube – this is a fun vlog with some good technical stuff on it as well. Follow them as they sail Adrenaline, fixing her up along the way. Well, they have sold the boat now (and buying a Seawind I think), but it’s a great channel to check out.
10. Sailing Lady Africa – Vlog
Follow Simone and Ricky from South Africa on their 1991 365 Dean Oceanliner Catamaran. They have fixed Lady Africa up nicely (Lithium batteries, new mainsail, new rigging, looks great) and you can follow them on their travels. If you like technical stuff, there is some great content here on the refit.
