Basically leaving Panama (Caribbean side) in February 2019 and arriving in New Zealand around November 2019. Then on the move again in May 2020 to Thailand via Fiji, Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia. The whole trip will be over the next 2-3 years. Looking for crew for the first leg from Panama to New Zealand, or only parts of it (or the whole thing) The Wandrin’ Star is 68' on deck and has 4 cabins and 4 heads and is fully equipped with the latest high-tech gear. I believe in backup systems so she has double of everything, including water makers. She is a super comfortable CRUISING boat. No rush ! Safety and comfort is important and seeing as much as possible along the way. The Star has over 1400 Watts of solar power to run the fridge and independent freezer, the autopilots and electric winches and a 8 kw diesel generator to back it up. We usually run the generator to make fresh water and at that time also some hot water and do laundry. (2 hot water heaters and washer and dryer). The main dinghy is a 14' hard bottom inflatable with a 60 hp Suzuki (it flies). There’s also a second 9' inflatable with a 15 hp Mercury, so we don’t get stuck in an anchorage, but get to move around even in hard to reach places and up rivers etc. I love to explore by dinghy and snorkel. The Wandrin’ Star has it’s own air compressor to fill it’s 4 scuba tanks, but at the time only dive gear for 2 people. Lot’s of snorkel gear though. I’m looking for 2 new crew members. Preferably between 30 and 55 years old (male or female). Fit and non smokers. I think 3 people on board is perfect as it is more difficult to cook for 4 in a small galley, but just about right for 3. Also, I prefer 6 hour shifts with a natural rotation than 4 hours watches. (This is however flexible). Alcohol consumption shall be kept to a minimum while at sea and no more than a beer or glass of wine. Once at anchor or secure at the dock we might have a little party. No drugs of any kind please ! I am not captain “Bligh”, but I do demand cleanliness, both in your cabin and bathroom, as well as personal hygiene. I should also mention, that there will be times, when I will have friends or family members visiting and sailing along for short stretches.
