Tiki 46 or similar wanted to lease

OceansWatch (www.oceanswatch.org) is looking for a Tiki 46 or similar to lease for work in the Pacific. Your yacht will be very well cared for and will be making a positive difference in the world. Owner skipper a possibility. Prefer contact by email please as I can only access emails when on expeditions myself. chris@oceanswatch.org Thanks :)See More

"Hi Chris, I am no sailor, but am no stranger to the sea. What exactly do you mean by "marine conservation and sustainable development work"?  What if the boat came with a small crew?   "

"Hi Mark, good to hear from you. Not really had the time for fundraising and anyway we have just been gifted use of a nice Hanse 54. Still very keen to get an Islander as I am certain they would do a great job. Is your boat finished and sailing?"

Wharram wanted to loan

Hi, I run www.oceanswatch.org We do marine conservation and sustainable developement work with communities mainly in the SW Pacific. We have a mono and a Tiki 38 on loan to us to run our expeditions. In 2013 we are seeking another yacht to expand our work and would ideally like a Tiki 38 or larger Wharram.

No where near it! The Pahi was shelved for a long time while we tried to get the house sorted out but it's back on track now. Upon completion we were thinking on re-locating to New Zealand for six months of the year at least Boat building and repair during the Irish winters has become an absolute Joke

Sounds great! Van? I'll be working off of the back of my boat. By that time I should have finished my exams at Lloyd's Maritime Academy so I'll have a Surveyors Certificate too. Could do new builds, repairs and surveys, maybe a bit of chartering.
