  • Description


    I’m a liveaboard vegetarian yachtie usually based on the marina in nelson. 10min slow walk into town centre . There’s always something to do aboard inside if the weather isn’t so good and outside on deck otherwise. If the weather I see nice and o have the time I’m happy to take you sailing over to the able Tasman National Park for a few days. My availability timewise varies week to week. You’ll have a cabin to yourself with your own shower and bathroom. Plenty fast internet, Netflix etc. anything you’ll find in a modern home I have onboard. Warm 8n winter cool in summer. A unique place to stay for sure. Just a footnote. Please don’t message me if your planning to come in six months time etc, that’s way too far out for me to accept you. Generally around a couple weeks out and I know where I’ll be and if I’m able to take anyone onboard. Cheers.

    Looking for folks who are happy to clean and polish. Some common sense as we are living on the water. A love of the outdoors and water a pre requisite . It’s a large yacht so always plenty of odd jobs to do. Some small art ideas I have also .
