We have recently purchased a semi-custom catamaran kit which we plan to start building in early 2023 before setting sail to circumnavigate the planet by sea, twice!
The Plan to build a Catamaran We are getting ready to embark on an epic adventure! It started with a dream to sail around the world. We looked for and found a kit catamaran that closely fit our budget and needs. We then customized the design by creating a 3D concept model of our perfect boat. We met and showed it to Schionning Designs and they agreed to modify their kit to make our catamaran. So, we made the first payment in July 2022!
The Goal Once we finish constructing S/V Lynx our goal is to sail her around the world, We want to experience different cultures, visit historical sites, and have fun doing sports and activities in new and exciting places. In short, we want the adventure and experience of a lifetime! We plan to video document the entire adventure from the build to the voyage so that others may be inspired to do the same.
Why a sail around the world? We chose to have this adventure on a catamaran because we get to take our home with us as we travel the world rather than move from hotel to hotel. Seeing the world by sailboat is also a slow and leisurely way to travel, allowing us to stay as long as we like, and sail on when we feel the need. With it, we can visit some hard to reach places in the world. So, come along with us on this journey, from the start... which is now!
We promised to start looking for S/V lynx in 2022... and we did! In fact, we found our boat! For several years we kicked around which used boat to purchase and now we have decided not to purchase a used boat at all! Instead, we are going to build S/V Lynx ourselves.
