Sailing Anui

Anui is our fourth and hopefully last catamaran. She is a 52 Crowther, built for speed, comfort and offshore voyaging. The combination of owning an ocean going catamaran and having retired means we can roam far and wide. The years ahead promise to be rich in adventures. We supplement our blog posts by documenting stories about special experiences in our sea wanderers’ life and the stunning destinations we are lucky enough to discover.
