The Boats

The Sailboat – “¡Pura Vida!”

Our beloved sailboat: 2000 Island Packet 420, Hull #17. She’s 45 feet long and 15 feet wide.

She was our exclusive home for the first six years of our voyaging (2015-2021). She’s now our part-time home in the tropics.

We found it! Details about our boat/home.

Our boat’s new name and why we chose it.

She’s our part-time home in France.


  1. What a beautiful boat! It reminds me of the Cape Dory we are interested in. I love all the wood and how solid it looks.

    1. Thanks, Camille! We love how solid she is, especially in rough seas. The wood…well, it’s a love/hate relationship.
