Skimmer is engineered for transoceanic performance and top speed without sacrifice to luxurious accommodations and sumptuous living spaces.
This 74ft Open Ocean Performance Cruising Catamaran is as beautiful as she is functional. The low profile flybridge design with racing stripe band of windows bisecting each hull is sleek and dynamic. The yacht has a tall rig, a large sail area, and a deep keel and rudder for unparalleled performance. Skimmer is remarkably spacious, a masterfully designed, open-plan home that boasts 360-degree water views.
Step aboard Skimmer’s beamy aft deck cockpit where there's plenty of space for your entire party to lounge comfortably. Banquette seating with adjustable tables under protective shade make this a popular place to dine or relax.
A double-wide door opens the interior galley and saloon to the outdoors, expanding the social space for near seamless open circulation and excellent fresh air flow. The main saloon has a contemporary décor of rich woods with upholstery in gentle hues that create a pleasingly organic ambiance. L-shaped sofa seating with additional modular chairs keeps guests comfortably at the large dining table. White paneling is crisp and bright, and a generous surround of windows infuses the area with daylight.
Opposite the dining area is the galley bar with four built-in stools. The professional galley is a chef's delight, with five-burner stove, dual sinks, expansive counter space, and loads of storage and refrigeration.
Skimmer accommodates eight charter guests in four en-suite cabins. Each guest cabin includes fine linens and soft goods, dual reading lights, thoughtful amenities and sufficient storage for extended voyages. The professional crew of four have separate quarters.
The yacht has many notable features that make her an ideal option for first time sailors and families with children. At the bow, two bench seats head up the two spacious trampolines each with a raised side, which supports anyone seated either on deck or at the trampoline. This intelligent design provides bow seating common to motor yachts but unusual in a sailing catamaran. The best of both worlds. Raised gunwales augment safety on deck. The most popular spot aboard Skimmer is the magnificent flybridge. There is plenty of space for a crowd and the views are spectacular.

Michael & Jennifer Lang
With over 30 successful charters to their name, Michael and Jennifer are pursuing their dreams aboard Bamarandiand are delighted to be your crew and gateway to the Caribbean.
Michael and Jennifer’s love for sailing began off the Southern Coast of California. They spent their summer vacations at Catalina Island, which consisted of ocean kayak camping in remote coves before Michael took ASA sailing courses to allow them to bareboat charter. Since then they have done whatever they could to get onto yachts, which later lead to Michael becoming a captain through the USCG.
Jennifer and Michael have been married for 10 years and find themselves happiest when their experience can be shared with others. Their hobbies and interests are naturally linked to the outdoors. Some of their most favored pursuits are backpacking, fishing, clamming, snowboarding, surfing, brewing beer/cider/mead, scuba diving, boatbuilding, free diving, and spearfishing. They also remodeled a 1955 Ranch in Portland for 10 years from the ground up without help from contractors, which they sold to herald in this new venture as yacht charter crew in the Virgin Islands.
They took on the largest challenge of their lives when they decided on a side project to build their own 45ft Blue Water Catamaran. Their yacht the Anomalous is currently a motor vessel on a slip in Portland Oregon. It is a work in progress where they do all the work themselves, everything from composites to installing diesel engines, electrical systems and all other boatbuilding fodder. In the off season outside of operating Bamarandi they plan to complete their yacht over the next four years. The rest is an untold story that must unfold itself...read more
Jennifer is from beautiful Pacific Northwest near Portland Oregon. She grew up camping, hiking, boating, skiing, and fishing throughout Oregon. Jennifer decided to pursue a career as a chef and earned a degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland, Oregon. During her schooling she traveled to Paris, France where she honed her skills and developed a passion for patisserie. The following six years were spent working as an Executive Pastry Chef.
Now as the Chef on Bamarandi she is excited to be back at her roots allowing her first passion to shine through. Her love for cooking extends beyond casual affairs. She strives to provide quality food by cooking from scratch, using fresh/local ingredients. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to food allergies (gluten, soy, egg, nuts, dairy, etc.), as she has many of them herself. Jennifer knows all too well what it’s like to vacation and not be able to indulge at unfamiliar restaurants and places. She will provide a safe haven for those with allergies or other dietary restrictions.
Michael is originally from the Bay Area outside San Francisco California. His land-based career was spent in renewable power working for a wind turbine manufacturer. He joined the company at age eighteen and left the corporate world at age thirty-three. He is predominately an engineer at heart. His mainline passion is to explore and push his personal limits to new boundaries.
