Welcome to Burnetts Ahoy!  You have stumbled upon a travel blog lovingly written by the Burnett family as they chronicled their adventures aboard the spectacular Leopard 48 sailing catamaran The Amazing Marvin from 2015-2017.  This blog details the journey of a couple of burned-out professionals who quit their jobs, learned to sail, bought a gigantic boat, plopped two kids and a cat on board, and then sailed the sh$! out of said boat through the Caribbean, Atlantic Ocean, and the Meditteranean Sea.  There are even a few averted (and not-so-averted) disasters along the way!  Explore the menu above, or click an icon below to find what you need.  Happy wakes!  — The Burnetts
