Best Experience if My Life


I spent six months with this boat several years ago, and I would do it again if plans permitted. She is under a new captain who has spared no expense bringing her back to her glory. Hope to see her in the Western Hemisphere soon.

She's SAILING!!!


We have long standing relations with this great tops'l schooner. While we were refitting our own vessel in Fiji, we encountered the SV Alvei in dire straits in the harbor of Suva. One year later we were thrilled to anchor off her bow in Russell Harbor, New Zealand. Great to see that there are old-school sailors around with a passion for square riggers!
