Sweetest Thing is a luxurious 48-foot, state-of- the-art catamaran. This design was brand new in 2008, from renowned yacht builder Fountaine-Pajot, replacing the Bahia 46. The Salina 48 is exceptionally roomy, with large windows - ideal for two or three couples and their children or up to eight total guests. She offers huge salon and cockpit social areas, plus an aft sun deck, foredeck seating, and an elevated 3-seat flybridge helm station with panoramic views, yet easy access to the cockpit.
Comfort - Fully air conditioned (and heated), you can cool off in the spacious cabin, and sleep in comfort. A sound-deadened gen-set means you can cool her down anytime you wish.
Entertainment ?

SWEETEST THING Crew Profile
Captain Tofer was born and raised in Wyoming, graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Science degree. During a brief hiatus from college he moved out to Washington State where he met a beautiful girl. He married Rebecca Knight in 1988 and they moved back to Wyoming to finish University. Shortly after they were married they began working with troubled youth. For six years Kristofer took court referral and school referral kids out on high impact backpacking, kayaking, and river rafting trips. This experience moved Kristofer and Rebecca to start a home for troubled boys in Montana. For 14 years they were known as the place you sent your kid if no real hope was left, or often, if no one else would take them. Backpacking, Kayaking, Rock Climbing and other outdoor adventures were still a big part of the program. They also raised farm animals and the kids were responsible for helping with the running of the farm. In 2001 Kristofer and Rebecca, whose own five children were now getting older, decided to make a big life change. They began to charter sailboats in Washington, state and took all of the American Sailing Association courses. They began to take a select group of boys from the home out to Washington to get certified by the ASA as well. During this time they were already looking for a boat to buy for themselves. In 2003 they bought ?Wandering Dolphin? a 41 foot aluminum cutter designed by Gary Mull. After loosing their home and business in an uninsured fire ?Wandering Dolphin? became their full time home. Since then they have sailed her up and down the East Coast of the USA, the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the Leeward and Windward Islands and Trinidad.
Kristofer became a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain in 2007 and has delivered sailboats all over the US and Caribbean. He has over 30,000 OFFSHORE sailing miles and continues to sail offshore around 10,000 to 12,000 miles every year.
