Our story

A bit more about Fat Cat Sail

We arrived in Mexico in 2003, with a 7 and 4 year old and the BBC in hot pursuit as we had been chosen for their series Living the Dream. Although the original boat we arrived with is not what we have now we are forever grateful to “Res Ipsa” for setting us off on our dream voyage.

Years on we have expanded the family with some Scottie dogs (Mrs H always mindful of her roots!) and enjoy living and working in the small community of Puerto Aventuras. We affectionately refer to it as Planet Puerto. Never sure if this is because it is “out of this world” or you have to be from another planet to live here! Either way, we love it!

Over the years we have added a second boat to the company so we now have Fat Cat Too and Fat Cat Two (who thought up the second name!!!) and have seen the number of guests from far and wide grow. However, we still enjoy meeting as many guests as possible and giving them the personal service they deserve.

Looking back it has indeed been an adventure but they always say that calm seas do not make good sailors.

Not long after we arrived here we were given a book by some new friends (who are now dear friends) – Don’t Stop the Carnival. It is a 1965 novel by American writer Herman Wouk, a comedy about escaping middle-age crisis to the Caribbean. A favourite chapter, Champagne Si, Agua No, is a must read for anyone considering leaving the “rat race” to live the dream………

So now that you have some holiday / vacation reading material ready what are you waiting for?

We hope that you enjoy sailing with the Fat Cat crew.
