    This is a great opportunity to live in a traditional sailboat, get to know the work of wood, and be able to sail along the Barcelona coastline whenever we have tours planned.

  • Help


    The boat needs someone handy, to help me with the reparations: wood, engine, and painting is what needs to be done. Current tasks:
    - polish and paint engine
    - build a wooden table and banks for the deck
    - Install the toilet
    - Install fridge and sink
    - other unpredictable repairs ;-)

    In parallel, we will be busy preparing the project website, maintain social media, and doing advertisements. So, if you are an expert in web design, graphic design, or social media marketing this could be helpful as well.

  • Accommodation


    You can stay on the boat. Accommodation is a bit spartan (but authentic and romantic at the same time;). There are two bunk beds in the main cabin and a double bed in the stern cabin. There is a small gas kitchen that you can use. Showers and toilets are at the harbor facilities.
