Watch: Boat Tour and Sailing Plan for 2021

Looking for a long term live aboard and cruising companion

I am looking for a female firstmate and life partner who wants to live aboard and cruise long term. I'm currently based in Kas, Turkey and plan to spend next summer cruising around the greek islands. I like to cruise at a leisurely pace, island hopping, anchoring in quiet bays, and take time to explore inland and enjoy local culture and food. My boat was launched in 2018, and is fully kitted out for a live aboard lifestyle, with aircon, generator, solar, heating, water maker, WiFi etc.

You should be outgoing, positive and fit aged 45-62, with a desire to escape the rat race and see the world! I intend to spend next year in the Mediterranean but my longer term plans are flexible. I would be definitely be interested in circumnavigating and heading to the Caribbean if I found someone who wanted to do the same, but I am equally happy staying in the Med for a few years. I am financially independent and don't require any contribution to boat costs. However, enthusiasm, good humour, and a passion for life are a must!

  • Boat descriptionNew boat delivered in April 2018. Three cabin layout with two doubles and one twin cabin. Two heads with showers. All electric winches, inmast furling main with 106 % genoa and furling code 0. Raymarine chart plotter and multi function displays, autopilot, AIS. For stormy harbour bound nights the saloon has a 40 inch TV, bose sound system, and a well stocked cocktail cabinet! Fully kitted out with all safety equipment including liferaft, EPIRB, lifejackets etc. I have equipped the boat for long distance cruising with a watermaker, solar panels, generator, air conditioning, 3/4G router, high powered WiFi and Iridium Go satellite communications so that we only have to visit harbour when we want to, not for water or internet access! Otherwise I prefer to anchor and take the dingy ashore to explore, and sample the local cuisine. The boat is designed for comfortable cruising, and sails well with a respectable performance upwind and downwind.

I highly recommend traveling with Jim. He is a very good captain. He also likes to teach sailing. At the same time he is very respectful, trusthful, relaxed and fun. If you like to chat and learn new things, you should travel with him. You can talk to him for hours about different topics. You will be not bored ever. When you travel with him, you do not understand how the time goes. It will be a wonderful experience for you. Thanks ?

Amazing first sailing experience


I have no words to express the level of my appreciation and gratitude to have been invited on board of the Acheron! Jim is super knoledgeble technically and a patient instructor. Plus it was fun and easy to share life with the real gentle man he is. Comfortable. Safe. Brilliant! We did Milos > Kimolos > Sifnos > Antiparos > Ios in a few days. I learned so much! We also easily shared our stories and experiences. THANK-YOU!
