A first leg of a seasons cruising that might extend if skipper and crew are exceptionally compatible.
The skipper is a retired merchant seafarer and full time liveaboard so most things are already here. If you want to do celestial navigation, BYO sextant. Mine is out of bounds.He is also a smoker, (lee topside only)
The vessel is fairly traditional with a bit less internal space than boats designed for the charter market, but carries sufficient stores and water for extended voyages.
The voyage would, I assume, well suit someone wanting to log miles and night hours. If you want to do celestial navigation, BYO sextant. Mine is out of bounds.

Looking forward to your reply.
