Sharing life on board

Hello there, here Captain Mat and skipper Kate.

We bought our catamaran about 8 months ago and sailed down to Spain during winter. Here in Galicia, we would like to sail around Rias Altas and Rias Bajas, do only little sails amongst those beautiful beaches and change anchorage from time to time. After August, we plan to stick with the sun and sail down along Portugal's coast, destination Algarve for a bit in autumn.

We are always happy to welcome nice people on board if someone would be interested to see, what is it like to live on a boat and would like to enjoy those little sails with us.

Let us know if you interested.

We have our own webpage and sending out newsletter every Sunday. Let us know if you would be interested to read those and get to know us a bit more.

Take care and fair winds to those who sail :)

  • Boat descriptionOur Apache 41 is a catamaran with 4 cabins, where we can host up to 8 beautiful people. Each cabin comes with its own sink, space to store personal things and retreat for a rest. The boat has a fully equipped kitchen, where we like to experiment: baking our sourdough bread, prepare all kind of (fish) dishes or process whatever the surroundings have to offer in the current season. The sinks have 3 taps: fresh, drinking and salt water. The saloon provides little oil heater called Antarctic for colder days (now not in use, as the temperatures rise), desk & sofa and library, which will host you with interesting books of sailing topics but also exciting novels. We like to make music and therefore there is guitar on board and saucepans to drum :). Shared bathroom with shower (outdoor solar shower available as well) and toilet with everything to satisfy minimalistic hygiene needs. Two water tanks (120l each) and a rainwater collection system allow us to live and cruise off-grid for extended periods of time. Deck is roomy and gives enough space to comfortably move around, do yoga or just enjoy sunrises. Relax in cockpit or discover surroundings of our current stay. Back aft you'll find a wooden deck area, forward there are two nets to chill (or sleep in on warm dry night :) and plenty of space in between. Our cat is for now equipped with 2 diesel engines of 27hp which in future could be replaced for electric engines- yes we would like to have our blue surroundings nice clean. We are cruisers – and therefoer not the fastest. In nautical speed we talk about an average speed of approx. 5 knots. By installing a Victron based solar system (1300Wp/660Ah) we are super happy to be independent in terms of electricity – in fact we produce enough to run a electric water kettle (and might soon start to also cook electrically :) We provides some sailing clothing for passages (will be best if you have your own), epirb, life vests. Boat is equipped with fire extinguishers. Cat is accompanied with a dinghy, propelled by oars or by an electric outboard. Our lovely lady is 51 years old this year, and one should be expecting all but no shiny fancy boat. But we love her and she loves us, because we work every day to make it a nicer and cosier place to live :) In this sense, it's the perfect boat for those who want not only to sail and discover but also learn about boat work, maintenance and DIY re-fit & upgrades.
