We spent Christmas in the Caribbean, sailing from St. Lucia to the British Virgin Islands on a Lagoon 450F. A wonderful experience that led us to push the "Caribbean" project a year forward. TAMIRO I (2015) will offer Sail & Dive Trips in the area of ​​Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Lucia and Domenica from mid-December 2019 to the end of April 2020 (bareboat or skippered). Starts and ends is usually Martinique, which can be reached directly from Paris (Air France) and Frankfurt (Condor). But other places are possible. The price for one week TAMIRO is EUR 5.200, for 2 weeks EUR 10.000 (bareboat). The availability of TAMIRO is available at

ARC 2019

On 24/11/2019 it is called "Leash off». TAMIRO will sail with the ARC from Las Palmas (Grand Canarias) to St. Lucia (Caribbean). We hope that we will sail the 3100 nautical miles with our new Parasailor in 18 days. After this “venture”, we sail in the area of ​​St. Lucia and Martinique, before the ARC crew will disembarks on 20.12.2019 in Martinique.

In addition to the unique experience of crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a 14 x 8 meters catamaran, we will also be part of the legendary ARC parties in Las Palmas and St. Lucia!

We want to be a maximum of 7 crew members on TAMIRO (including Skipper Urs).
About the costs:

§  Double cabin for single use: EUR 4500

§  Bed in double cabin: EUR 2500

... plus the usual crew costs (catering, diesel and port fees in the Caribbean).

TAMIRO: Swimming Platform & Tenderlift


Four weeks ago we decided to keep S / C TAMIRO in our small fleet. And now comes the good news: S / C TAMIRO gets an upgrade: This March we install a bathing platform, respectively Tenderlift, similar to TAMIRO II.

A few advantages of the platform:

§  Using the 40hp dinghy and easy attaching the dinghy

§  Easy entry and exit for divers and kite surfers

§  Bathing fun for all ages

§  Apero with the feet in the water ... where else you get this?


Good News!



New Dive Compressor and Parasailor

At the BOOT in Dusseldorf we have upgraded for the season 2019! We have bought a second dive compressor from Bauer. The model is the Bauer Junior II, which has various options: automatic pressure shut-off, automatic drainage, 300 bar, two filling hoses, etc.

For trips from Samos in the direction of Kos (downwind course) there is now the opportunity to sail them with the new Parasailor. 169m2 sail area pull the 20 tons through the water. A unique sailing experience.
