World cruising sailors
We are the world cruising sailors Heidi and Peter. We bought our sailing yacht STORMVOGEL some years ago. She is a one-off KOOPMANS 48 Aluminium build in THE NETHERLANDS. In July 2012 we started our big journey around the world.
In December 2012 we arrived at the Caribbean island St. Lucia. After some time in the Caribbean we headed further west through the Panama Canal into the Pacific. We visited Galapagos, Marquesas, Tuamotos, Rarotonga, Niue, Tonga and ended up in October 2013 in New Zealand.
From March 2014 on we continued our sailing trip and visited Vanuatu, Australia, Indonesia and arrived end of 2014 in Singapore. A short Christmas break back in Germany and re-started in January 2015 to visit Malaysia and Thailand by boat.
In May 2015 a cargo ship transported STORMVOGEL from Phuket (Thailand) to Fetije (Turkey) – and we sailed the rest of the year 2015 the whole Mediterranean sea from east to west, including Turkey, Greece, Italy, France and Spain where we made again a Christmas break.
During our journey we wrote more or less daily a blog, including thousands of photos. You will find the blog at our homepage – unfortunately this is all in German language. But with some assistance from GOOGLE translate you can make it!
This web site is offering our fantastic sailing yacht to potential buyers as we strongly believe that STORMVOGEL is made for the big oceans, for cruising around and to live aboard. We had our adventure. We are very happy that we did it, but our big family and most of our friends are at home. So we will not continue with another trip. That’s the reason why we are looking for new owner for this beautiful yacht.
Last, but not least we like to name some photo credits as most of the action shots in the outside-section of this web site are made by good sailing friends around the world. Here we go:
