Kathleen D- Certified Safe & compliant by the USCG
*Kathleen D is the ONLY United States Coast Guard Certified / Inspected Small Passenger Sailing Vessel in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
What does that mean to you? SAFETY!
Many charter operators break Federal law by taking more than 6 passengers aboard their craft- but be advised they are operating illegally in doing so. When something goes wrong their illegal actions become your problem as well.
Kathleen D is INSPECTED by the Coast Guard a minimum of twice per year.
Her initial construction & daily operation are conducted under strict federally enforced rules.
Her crew is LICENSED & routinely TRAINED for safety & TESTED for illegal substances under Federal DOT guidelines.
It DOES NOT COST MORE to sail on "The Perfect Getaway" than with an illegal charter operator.
Our safety and our legal compliance provide you the highest level of sailing charter services available in Sarasota and Manatee county.
Enjoy your sail- the responsibility rests with us!
Further information on "Demise" or "Bareboat" charters:
There is a means by which an "uninspected" vessel can be chartered for more than six guests up to a maximum of 12 persons on board. That 12 person count INCLUDES any crew you may hire. Demise or Bareboat Charters are legal and legitimate, but they must be very specific and well documented.
When you engage in a bareboat charter YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY for the vessel and the lives on board. If you have an accident, incident or casualty- you are solely on the hook for all legal, liability and repair / replacement costs associated with that incident.
Be sure you have a legal signed contract and that the insurance coverage is extended to cover you. If you do not have these items in hand, you are placing yourself and your guests in jeopardy. Click Here for USCG documentation regarding legitimate Demise/Bareboat Charters.
Kathleen D operates a USCG Inspected Small Passenger Vessel. That means the legality, liability and safety of the vessel is our complete responsibility. Rest assured- we take that responsibility (and the significant costs associated with it) very seriously.
