Taking delivery of a new Privilege catamaran is understandably a thrilling event. For many it can also be very stressful. Rob and his captain Brett, however, arrived better prepared than most.
The owner of ‘Wild Rose II’ is Rob Sissons from Alberta, Canada. His previous boat was a 65′ trawler, but the Privilege 500 is his first sailboat. At Privilege Catamarans America, we understand that the delivery process should start well before the new boat is ready. For that reason, we consider our Privilege Academy program to be the first phase of the delivery experience. We believe the new owner should already understand the mechanical and electrical systems of the new boat and be comfortable sailing the vessel well before it’s even splashed. This will assure the delivery is more ‘joy’ and less ‘stress’.
Because Rob plans to sail extensively as well as continue running a business, he hired a full-time captain for Wild Rose II. Rob and his captain, Brett, both attended our Privilege Academy program at Nanny Cay this past April.
