LEAVING MELBOURNE ON JULY 1 - ESTIMATED TOTAL TRAVEL TIME - 6MTHS.
I am looking for adventurous crew to join me to help me take my yacht (68' Gulfstar - “Mr Percival”) from Melbourne (Aus.) (July 1) to the Caribbean (Dec 2016). Looking for anyone interested in just doing part of the trip or the whole way. I will be heading up the east coast of Australia - Sydney, Brisbane, Great Barrier reef, West along to Bali, Indonesia, Across the Indian to the Maldives, Seychelles, Madagascar, Mauritius etc,Cape Town, and then up to Brazil and up to Trinidad. (I will be meeting my family there, and continuing with them onto Europe, and then the return trip to Australia.)
The yacht “Mr Percival” sleeps 8 (four berths), 3 bathrooms, very comfortable covered cockpit area (with clear blinds that roll up etc) , Cutter rig, all hydraulic furling and winches - primarily operated from the helm, large kitchen, ample fridge and freezer space, large living areas. 215hp Turbo diesel, 1100 lt of fuel, 760 lts of water (plus water maker) 2 x generators, bow thruster, walk off sugar scoop and 20hp Rib inflatable.
