I'm looking for active/adventurous people who want to contribute and share experiences together.

After getting the boat 2 years ago, I have already sailed around the Carribbean and across the Pacific through French Polynesia and Tonga. The current plan is to spend southern hemisphere summer in New Zealand then head to Fiji around April 2023.

The boat is 2016 Nautitech 46 with 4 double cabins. There may be up to 5 other people on board and this means you may have to share a cabin. However, gals are not expected to have to share with guys a vice-versa.

The boat is really well set up for living on the ocean e.g. fishing gear, SUP, dive equipment, solar etc.

We are seeking to live sustainably and will be generally living off grid. Everyone will be expected to contribute to running the boat - including cleaning, cooking, watch keeping, basic maintenance etc.

Days are varied but we like to spend time exploring, spear fishing and enjoying the natural world.
