Flyer is Back on the Water and Better than Ever

Flyer is Back on the Water and Better than Ever

A look at the other side of life in paradise – keeping Sebago’s ships bright and shiny. It’s time for Flyer, the most recent addition to our catamaran fleet, to earn her trademark Sebago stripes. Its no easy feat to hoist a 60’ long, 31’ wide catamaran with a massive mast out of the water and into dry dock.

Two straps are secured to the Flyer while still in the water. Each strap is connected to a crane, one on each side of the catamaran. The crane operators must work together to lift Flyer out of the water and onto supports set up on the dock. Any mistakes here and the catamaran can be badly damaged. Safely out of the water, work begins on the Flyer, giving her a thorough cleaning and fresh coat of paint, complete with stripes. Work done, the Flyer looks like new. The crane operators reverse the process and carefully maneuver the catamaran back into water. Flyer sails daily on Key West sunset tours, and Island ‘Ting, Sebago’s popular all-day eco tour.

In accordance with the best practices and guidelines established by the CDC and City of Key West, Effective Friday, March 20th, Sebago Watersports will suspend our regularly scheduled excursions until April 3rd. Future reservations are still being accepted.  We will evaluate on a weekly basis and post regular updates on our website and social media channels. Our office also remains open and available to assist you over the phone.  Please call 305-902-5136 for additional assistance. Sebago Watersports has been a leading provider of watersports activities in Key West for over 30 years and during this time has faced, and overcome, many challenges. We, with you, will overcome this as well.
