Dear Shipmates


I am a young 76 and fit. My background has been professional photographer, event organizer, and more recently real estate sales on the coast of Maine. I have been wintering over in Tunisia and will soon head to Malta, Sicily, Croatia. Then on to Montenegro and Albania before heading into Greek waters. On the way to Turkiye.
I am recently retired and have considerable cruising experience in the past including a circumnavigation and later in western Med.

About the boat, the plans, and current crew

usually cleancomfortablevery safevessel is survey certifiedshare experienceseek adventurefulfill a dreamlearn a languagefind a soulmate/partnermulticultural

Looking for crew to Malta, Sicily, along the boot of Italy, then to Croatia. After that to Greece and Turkiye, returning to Tunisia next winter.
Any crew would be considered on a share food and expenses basis. The yacht is an exceptional custom cruising boat with one circumnavigation behind her and turns heads wherever she goes.

Cruising is supposed to be enjoyable so I prefer a relaxed life aboard. I have just spent the past month with an amazing young woman aboard who was more capable at everything than one could possibly hope for. We both made an effort to have fun and enjoy the sailing from the Azores to Portugal and on along the coast of Spain to Gibraltar before taking side trips to Morocco and Madrid. I love travel and am eager to see and experience the rest of the Med. I cruised in the Balearics and briefly in Sardinia many years ago before all the development so I know it will be something of a surprise today. I learned long ago that sharing the experience of travelling is far more enjoyable than doing it alone. I'm quite flexible and am usually up for just about anything. I speak native English and am quite comfortable in German and Spanish but would love to be better at French.
