There are millions of Yachts, Power Cruisers and even Superyachts sitting in marinas all over the world.
And for whatever reason, they do not move. The owners have all kinds of reasons for not using their boats.
1. It stays clean and ship shape (obviously, cleaning and general maintenance is part of the conditions of the deal)
2. Your vessel is protected from unsavoury characters breaking in and trashing or stealing your pride and joy.
3. You can have various maintenance tasks agreed as part of the deal.
4. Peace of mind that someone is looking after your yacht while you deal with your land based obligations.
5. Ready to sail as soon as you return on-board without all the usual surprises, cleaning and fixing.

You can place a free ad on the boat sitting page and use our email for initial contact from respondents to your advertisement. Or you can use your own email and phone number in the ad. It’s your choice.
Free advertisement also – but we suggest a phone number and e mail in your ad. Get your references and CV with your past history, work and practical experience sorted out.
I can also stay with the boat if you need to go back to your country for whatever reason for any length of time. I will not only look after the boat but also carry out all the necessary maintenance in your absence so when you are back all will be ready for a new adventure.
At the moment I live and work in UK. I hold British and Slovakian passport.
Flexible with time and available from August 18 to till whatever time it takes.
I pay my travel expenses and support myself during the voyage and between. You pay the boatexpenses.
My personality is easy going, and unless you are a dictator we will get on well together.
Prefer if the boat is not overcrowded ideally just two or three of us.
Can join you in Europe or USA but wouldn’t mind to travel further if it is an interesting opportunity.
I am currently looking to purchase a 45-ish foot steel hull sailboat in Malaysia or the Philippines (possibly Australia) in September. I am looking for someone to assist with evaluating possible purchases, to fly to inspect boats of interest, to captain the boat and, most importantly, to teach me and my wife how to sail and, more importantly, anchor the boat. If you are an experienced sailor who has always dreamed of sailing southeast Asia, and you are interested in living that dream, I’d be interested in talking to you.
What’s in it for me? Your expertise in the boat purchase, learning from you, someone to explore paradise with when my wife gets tired of me and, hopefully, someone who becomes a dear friend who can visit again and again.
What’s in it for you? An all expense-paid sailing vacation to paradise, wonderful company and great students, and, making a new dear friend who has a boat in SE Asia.
I’m not looking for a professional captain who wants to help me attain a certification. I don’t really care about the certification at this time (or should I?) I just want to learn how to safely sail, anchor, and maintain the boat so I can grow as a sailor. I’m looking for someone who is interested in fulfilling their dream and who wants to help me fulfil my dream. Someone who wants to pay it forward. Someone who believes that when one teaches, two learn.
A little about my wife and me. I’m 51 yrs and American. My wife is 38 yrs and Chinese. I learned to sail when I was 8 years of age, was a windsurfing instructor in college, occasionally rent a small cat or laser, and have never sailed a boat anywhere near the size of the boat I’m looking to buy. My wife has never sailed, she wants to learn, and she’s smart enough to learn quickly. She’s also a great hostess and will make sure we are well fed. Our plan is to relocate to Malaysia or the Philippines and live the dream.
If this is something that peaks your interest, shoot me a response and let me know a little about yourself and your interest in joining us. Let’s start the discussion.
