Has any of you used The Catamaran Company? Wondering how they compare to Moorings, TMM etc?

Use the search function. I have been with TMM twice and a few times with horizon. Both wonderful experiences. We liked TMM so much that we put a boat in there fleet.

Thanks - we have used TMM many times as well and really like them. Just wondering about Catamaran Company as they have a particular boat that interests me. We may well go back to TMM - nice people and close to town.

The Catamaran Company is fine. Mostly newer, well kept boats in their fleet.....

Boarding of the boats is now at 5:00PM as opposed to 12:00 noon previously if that makes a difference......

Safe and enjoyable boating.

I have chartered with he Catamaran Company many times over the years and they always provided nice equipment with good support. However, a 5:00 PM boarding would be my deal killer.

Boarding 5:00 the night BEFORE your charter is one thing. Boarding 5:00 pm day you start is quit another. What time is the "return" time? Should be same time as departure.

TMM is 12noon charter start and generally can board 0800. On return, need to be off 12;00noon, with return to docks suggested to be by 10;00am.

We are renting with CatCo in June, and the 5:00 pm was a major issue for us. Our fault - I missed it in the original contract and we didn't notice it until we went to look for it. Long story short, we had to add another rental day to our charter to get out on the day we originally intended. Oh, and they had an employee leave their employment and our emails regarding a sleepaboard went unanswered for several weeks before I finally reached out to the only other contact I had there. That being said, they did work with us to get our "extra" day resolved, but we won't use them for future trips because frankly a 5:00 pm check-in makes absolutely no sense!

Same reason we don't use Sunsail. 5 pm start is a rip off since it counts as your first day.

WOW - huge difference. We always make it to Cooper or Norman the 1st day/night. Thanks for the heads up.

A 5:00 pm start is practically forcing you to do a sleepaboard at 100% charter day cost. That is ridiculous.
