  • Description

    Description

    0ur project is located in Stockholm area lake Mälaren, Slagsta Marina 20 min walking distance from Fittja metro station. I am Villy a 72 years old finish man who started this project of building a 150 m2 of Catamaran since 30 years ago. I am Civil engineer who has built 7 boats and sailed for many years. I am looking for people who will be interested in this dream/project because the idea is to have the catamaran in the water by next summer 2022. BY THE MOMENT THE CATAMARAN IS NOT ON THE WATER. There is a lot of work that must to be done such as: cleaning, organize, painting...ietc.

    I will need some workawayers to work here for some time, it could be some months or weeks. We provide accommodation in a shared room or single room (depending of space in the boat) we also provide with a meal a day that must be prepared by the volunteers. In the Catamaran there is no toilet but It can be used the toilet and shower, also the kitchen that the Marina provides. We require you will commit to work for at least 4 hours a day with weekends off. Sometimes I also sail in another boat that I have, so you will be welcome to join us. My family sometimes shows up as also Chloe
    my Project manager who is Spanish.

    There is also Wifi but for doing basics things. The diet we follow is non vegetarian but we also cook a lot of vegetables. Me Villy I speak english, finish, swedish...Chloe speaks fluent english and spanish.
