Prepare our boat for a trip to the Caribbean

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionOur boat is a 72ft sailing yacht based in Spain. She is a traditional steel ketch and is being restored by us. We need help and are looking for your help to do this.

    About the boat:
    The boat was designed and built in 1972. Only 2 were made.

    The present owners are doing everything they can to ensure that the soul of the boat remains as they sensitively bring the boat up-to-date.

    She is in the City so there is plenty to do in easy reach.

    There are decent berths in the boat in 4 Cabins.

    Couples or singles fine.
  • LocationSpain, RegiĆ³n de Murcia, Murcia, Cartagena

  • Work
  • Type of work In November 2017, the boat is sailing to the Caribbean. In order to prepare for the trip the boat has a lot of maintenance required and the interior requires a considerable amount of work to trim the walls and ceilings, rebuild the galley and paint many areas. These are the hippohelp skills we require.

    - Work with the owners to fit wooden panelling to the interior walls, fit teak trim, paint parts of the boat both interior & exterior.

    - Maintain winches, clean & polish fittings etc. Cook meals, clean.

    - I can help explain so you don't need to have lots of experience of yacht equipment but his would be useful.

    - Carpentry, painting, interior design & trimming.
