  • Description


    Hey guys and girls. James (USA) and Albin (Kuna Yala) here. We're friends from the San Blas islands in Panama with a new project in Costa Rica. We found an amazing wooden catamaran for sale and bought it about a month ago. The project is to turn her into a big sailing platform with huge wood decks and great red-chinese sails, outdoor kitchen, space to move around, do yoga, make art, and be yourself. We bring a combined 20+ years experience sailing and will love to teach you guys how to sail and share life aboard. The big dirty jobs are getting finished quickly and soon the boat will be ready to sail. So, now we will start to look for some energetic crew to come and live this experience with us as we sail the pacific coast of costa rica and put the finishing touches on the boat.

    About you

    Character Traits:
    -Hard working & efficient

    -Great cooking with simple ingredients
    -Yoga instructor (or ability to lead small classes)
    -Bi-lingual (Spanish & English) Any other languages also a plus
    -Sailing experience

    Your role aboard will be a dynamic one with a little bit of everything. Keeping a positive attitude and working as a team is essential to the morale of the boat. I generally am responsible of the heavy lifting, engine/systems maintenance, and decisions in regards to navigation. We always work towards the goal of maintaining a safe and positive environment on the boat. This is necessary for us, the crew, and the boat to be happy :)

  • Accommodation


    14meter Polynesian style catamaran. The entire deck is flat and provides a huge amount of free space to move around, cook, work, do yoga, etc. 4 private(ish) cabins and loads of space to hang hammocks and sleep on deck. There's currently no toilet, so come ready for camping-style living.
