Moskito Valiente Sailing

Our Unique Catamaran

MOSKITO VALIENTE II is a classic 35 ft sport / cruising catamaran comfortably set up for permanent liveaboard & fully equipped for offshore and ocean sailing.

The interior has two private suites – one in each hull – with panoramic views. Each suite has large bathroom and a queensize bed.

The exterior has many different gathering areas such as the cockpit, deck, bow trampolins & stern swim platform.

There are plenty of toys on board! Paddleboard, complete gear for snorkel, scubadive, windsurf & spearfish, inflatable auxiliar boat, barbacue, hammocks, board games, beach games, projector for movies and much more…

This sailboat is unique & special because is one off procuction and  it was completely refitted by and only us..!

This full refit (interior and exterior) was an eco project based on sustainability and the use of recycled and reused materials. The sailboat restored is a 35ft catamaran Hugo Myers (built in 1983) which had been in a state of complete neglect for several years.

The work lasted 18 months with two stages on dry and one in the water. Basically the boat was completely disassembled down to the last screw. The hull remained only in its structure and the fiberglass was visible both outside and inside. All the interior furniture was discarded due to its poor condition. The hull was then rebuilt by repairing and reinforcing the broken hull structures and the finishing process was carried out. Once the hull was rebuilt, the rest of the elements that it was possible to recover after its repair and reconditioning process were reassembled, or used materials from other boats, recovered or bought second-hand. For the repairs, tools and materials of general or domestic use were used to a greater extent. This work was carried out in the Marquesas and Tuamotu Archipelago, geographically isolated places in the middle of the South Pacific with a privileged natural environment but with very little access to necessary materials and infrastructure.

Crew Area

The port hull Red Suite is the Crew Area where the galley (kitchen) is located with a huge fridge, stove and our stylish black sink.

This is where all the electronics, navigation system and control panels are located.

The Red Suite also comprehends the crew´s private zone with our bed and toilet.

Kuna is only allowed to access this area of the interior of the boat when we have guests.


Guest Area

The starboard hull Green Suite is the Guest Area.

It has a panoramic ocean view from the bed with large windows that can be easily blinded by curtains.

This suite has a queensize bed, a large table with two seats and a very well ventilated toilet for our guest´s absolute privacy and comfort.

The toilet has a electric discharge and a focet with fresh water.

Showers are always taken outside on the swim platform.

Fantastic experience and very nice hosts. A great way to experience another type of lifestyle with Andreia, José and their lovely dog and crew member, Kuna. Clean and good space in private cabin incl. private bathroom. Good food prepared onboard but also option for restaurants. This is not a hotel or tourist yacth, but an experience into the lifestyle and more inner peace🏝

If you have ever dreamt of spending a few nights on a catamaran, then you should consider joining the Moskito Valiente on a leg of their journey. I highly recommend you check their website and hop in! We just had the most amazing five days sailing around Rangiroa and Taha'a with Andreia, Jose and Kuna. The best part, by choosing them, is that you can decide how you are going to spend your day, as you don't have to follow someone else's schedule. You can snorkel, scuba dive (lessons with Andreia), windsurf (take lessons with Jose), paddle board, spear fish, etc. For a more relaxed time, simply enjoy the sailing and relax on the deck, sunbathe, or visit motus while anchoring every night in another stunningly beautiful place. For us, this trip also made it possible to see the islands from a perspective you simply cannot have from land. Before the trip, we had no idea how we would get used to life on a boat, but Andreia and Jose made everything seem easy and comfortable, maintaining a pleasant atmosphere throughout the trip. Ohh, and the meals they prepared for us!!! (you have 2/day included) Ask Jose for his authentic Spanish Tortilla. The catamaran has been recently beautifully and tastefully refitted by the two of them, who are both experienced sailors. This has been their dream project and their home for the past years, and they do a great job welcoming guests aboard. We immediately made friends with Kuna, the 3rd member of the crew, and couldn't resist spoiling her every day with treats. About the catamaran: amenities are accurately described on their website, and we found it even more comfortable than expected. Our guest area (bedroom and bathroom) was very cute, with good ventilation (and a fan we did not have to use). Storage space is limited but practical and it's easy to have everything organized and handy (just don't bring large, rigid suitcases). Although the bed is comfortable, I found that one of my favorite places on the boat was the hammock. Power is available with the help of solar panels and a wind generator (batteries onboard provide electricity during the night). There is also a water desalination system but since fresh water is limited, we took showers on the swim platform. Bring USB-A cables for your electronics (there's a dual plug in the cabin). There is also a 220V plug. Thank you guys for an unforgettable vacation!

Sailing on Moskito Valiente was the last part and the pinnacle of our 3 weeks trip to French Polynesia. Before that we stayed in overwater bungalows in Moorea and Bora-Bora, but now looking back at the whole trip, I would totally change nights in $1000+/night bungalows for a longer sail with José, Andréia and Kuna. With Moskito Valiente you get never ending overwater experience, snorkeling, swimming with wildlife, sailing between motus, sunrises and sunsets, those insane stars you can sleep under on a trampoline, breakfasts, lunches and dinners (always get gourmet, trust me ;)) and most of all, a company of a wonderful couple who after some time feel like your best friends that you love and want always be with. Although at some point I even had a silly thought that they were probably going to harvest and sell our organs or something, because it just cannot be real, how much you get and how nice they are! But it was real, we were in a paradise. It is an experience for life and I'm forever grateful that it happened to us. Google, please give them 6 stars!

Best experience EVER!! My partner, two friends and I traveled to Mo’orea for our 40th birthday celebration.  We spent two nights with Andréia, José and Kuna and from the moment we arrived until we disembarked, they could not have made our experience more special!  After we initially booked our stay, they were very good with communication as to what our likes and dislikes were.  We opted for the “Sailor Menu” and we were very pleased with every meal they prepared.  Drinks on board were reasonably priced.  I get seasick very easily and I was a little worried about that being aboard for so long, but the way the boat moved was very relaxing and felt like we were being rocked to sleep at night.  They have everything you will need on board including use of a paddle board and snorkeling equipment.  They have a dinghy that is used to embark and disembark.  They also use it to take you on excursions which are all a part of the experience.  Andréia and José want nothing more than to make your trip the most memorable.  We enjoyed our time with them so much, that we still keep in touch with them today!  Do not hesitate for a moment to book time with them!  We cannot wait to get back and spend more time on Moskito!

Adoro navegar! Estar com o Moskito Valiente foi uma das melhores navegações que já vivenciei! José, Andreia e a cachorrinha Kuna foram grandes hospedeiros. Nos proporcionaram caminhadas, mergulhos e diversões que vão ficar para sempre em nossa história. Obrigada!

Foi uma das melhores experiências que já tive! Navegação, mergulho e caminhadas pelas ilhas sensacionais. A tripulação composta pela Andreia e José foram de uma atenção diferenciada e cuidadosa. Falando em português, espanhol ou inglês nos sentimos muito á vontade. A relação do benefício / custo é muito acessível e a alimentação espetacular
