  • Description


    Hello! I travel and live on a yacht! I am currently standing in Melilla, Spain.
    If you want to know the sea romance and get the experience of living on a boat and come to a different reality, come to visit!) In response, I ask you to help with the repair, cleaning, and maintenance of the boat.

    In the first 2 weeks of my stay, I do not pay for food for volunteers. But in return, I give my emotions and my knowledge, as well as free accommodation and adventures.

    If you work well and productively, like a pro and you want to stay and live on a boat for more than 2 weeks, then I start paying for meals onboard and all expenses: Internet, volunteer meals, fuel, parking in marinas. And we add 1 working day.

    Please answer a few questions in the welcome message:
    1. What do you want to get from being on board and what interests you the most?
    2. Do you have any work away experience or are you the first time?
    3. Do you know how to work with your hands and your skills, how can you be useful to the yacht on which you live? :)
