Dreams come true …

 

After many years of hard work we finally realized that happiness is not in the material world.

 

So we decided to sell our home and start looking for a new adventure.

Our first contact with #kitesurfing got us hooked and changed our lives for good. We decided to dedicate our lives to the thing we love the most - kitesurfing and traveling.

While searching for the world's best kitesurf spots, we found out that the perfect ones are often remote and reachable only by boat.

After some brainstorming sessions, we decided to buy our own sailing catamaran and reach these spots.

This boat is our home now and we love to share our passion with you and spread the kitesurf virus all over the world.

We are currently kiting, cruising, exploring, and free diving in the Greek Aegean Sea.

Unfortunately, our plans have been delayed for the last two years. We and Nova are in the final preparation for the Atlantic crossing.

The Boat: Leopard sailing catamaran

This comfortable catamaran was built by the famous South African boatyard Robertson & Caine (Crewed edition).

The Leopard Catamarans are especially dedicated to the bluewater cruises:

We equipped in Dec.2017 our catamaran with brand new engines.

Rolf build a carbon top.

We install new solar panels and refit the boat totally.

The boat has 4 double cabins.

All cabins are equipped with a Queen size bed, private toilet en-suites, reading lights, and superb ventilation with multiple hatches, fans, and wind scoop. The boat contains a very large and comfortable saloon with a U-shaped seating area and a large galley on the bridge deck (indoors).

The outside area is generous with a spacious dining facility in the cockpit, containing a large table, barbecue, and a beamer

The front deck is the perfect place to lay down on the trampoline, and enjoy the evening breeze,  and a sundowner.

We are now in full preparation for the next big chapter - Atlantic crossing 

Soon full boat tour video and many more- boat jobs, kitesurf, sailing ........Just our daily boat life.
