As owners of BluReverie, we have loved being aboard and it is our passion to share it with more people. Come aboard BluReverie, a brand new 48-foot sailing catamaran capable of open ocean voyages. We can accommodate up to 10 adult guests (12 total with children), in 3 queen size bedrooms and 2 bunk-bed rooms each with ensuite bathroom and shower. With an open forward deck and a fly-bridge offering 360 degree views, you will experience the bay like never before. All meals included.
