Watch: Sailing grateful

Mediterranean Adventure

Dec 2, 2018: we are headed for Turkey. Have room now for the next 2 weeks. Please contact us!

Grateful, captain Duane and first mermaid Tina are touring the Med from Greece to isreal for the next 6 months, and then the world for the next few years. Too many stops to list.
If you have a great attitude, can cook a few dishes, are healthy and happy and can pay your own way,(assume 75 euro per day) this ship would love to have you on board for a passage.
You will have your own stateroom if you are alone or as a team.
I try to swim at least 2K per day. This involves finding interesting and clear waters. Hope you are into at least doing at least a bit of swimming for exercise.

DIVING: Grateful is in need of at least 2 full sets of scuba gear. (Have room for 4). If you have or know of a good deal on the whole setup, BC, weight belt, tanks, fins, regulators...let me know!!!

Bonus points if you have the super-power of being able to make our online presence go viral...or at least get lots of hits...let me know.

In the water.

  • Boat descriptionGRATEFUL will make you feel just like the name says. She is totally outfitted with all the latest gadgets and technology to make sailing simple, safe and fun. We are touring the Mediterranean seas for the next year. We are in the Greek islands and the Turkish coast and Isreal for the winter. Spring will find her up the Aegean. Have you seen the Beneteau Sense 50’s? Here’s a link https://youtu.be/dRh6I_nh4QQ. This boat is one of the only clean sheet designs that have hit the market in decades. She’s a 2012, and has been kept in like new condition. She looks and sails like damn near new, is clean and dry. Cruises well at 7.5 kts, but she likes 9 kts too! As captain, I keep a clean ship, but I LOVE to have fun. I'm semi retired from a long career as a builder/real estate development professional. I deal very well with people one on one and with large crews. The crew is changing all the time. So come on for a week or more. Share the costs and expenses as we go, (ie,plan on contributing 75 euro per day to cover food, fuel, deferred maintenance, mooring fees, etc) and experience an amazing adventure aboard Grateful!
