while you are entitled to charge what you like for "crew" for this trip I have to say that $25,000 per couple for a 5 mnth journey is beyond absurd. I did from the east coast of the US to NZ over a 2 year period and it cost me less than that. Good luck buddy.

I dont see a problem with it. It could still work out cheaper for a couple to join him, rather than buy their own boat of that size and then try to sell it after a refit and a journey and associated costs. He can charge what he likes. I hope he gets it. It would be a perfect trip for a wealthy couple who are inexperienced and would like to travel and learn along the way. Imagine paying an instructor for that many hours of sailing lessons.

Cheers
