Type of crew we are looking for:

An Electrician or diesel mechanic or person with serious knowledge of these skills and with sea experience. Able to keep watch and handle a catamaran.

An Experienced able seaman or licensed skipper with above requested knowledge.

Boat, 43 f. Aluminium Catamaran build for safe cruising, not for speed. Equipped for diving at professional level.

Bonobo is not a sea gipsy vessel but an epicurean place where food, happy hour, good mood and spirit are paramount.
Be aware this is a long-term engagement! NOT just a 30 day crossing and By-By, there is NO possibility to leave the boat and go home after the Galapagos! NO planes in the Gambier Islands!!! Next stop is Tahiti.

I am a certified professional chef with many years experience working in remote locations. I am interested in your trip. Concerned about what sounds like a lack of cabin space though...
