Moorea – Our First Waterhouse

 

Sailing the Waterhouse

Moorea is a 1974 French built 35′ Dufour Sloop.  With a 11 foot beam, she is roomy inside and a comfortable vessel to live in.

Some of the her best features are the sea berths-keeps you snug during an ocean passage, Pullman berth in the stateroom-easy to climb into and built in wine racks-I told you it was a French boat.

She had most of the items we needed for offshore cruising like a radar and electronics.  But it still takes money, maintenance and patience to get a vessel ready for ocean passages.

Check out Making Moorea Seaworthy by Captain Kelly for more details.  To read about our transition to living on boats and our voyage around the world, check out our books.
