The project involves renovating 2 boats, one is a 31 feet french design monohull sailboat and the other one is a 40 feet solaris sunstream catamaran.
A typical day is 2 to 3 hrs of work in the morning, followed by sailing to a new anchorage
Activities are as varied as, kayaking, visiting remote villages, waterfall, canyons, dinghy sailing, hiking, snorkeling
You will be confrontated to almost off grid situation as we sail to remoted places and as we are often limited in power, water and wifi acces.
Life on the boat can be a all lot of fun but its not made for everyone. We work as a small community we share everything and live in a reduced space with a lot of people(up to ten), there's not a lot of privacy, not even in bathroom. However we manage to live all together and to make it work, even in hard moment we find solutions and make the impossible become possible.
We are adventure seekers and enjoy challenging ourselfs.
Minimum physical condition is needed.
