How did we get here?… well, there is a longer back story but let’s start after the decision was made to sell up the farm and horses and buy a boat.
Thanks to our real estate match maker friend (Evan), we settled our Richmond property in June 2018. A unit in Hobart was found quickly for us to live in for a month and then rent out. Then after a scouting trip to Sydney to look at about a dozen contenders, we decided on Carpe Diem II, a 2012 Dufour 445 GL. She was pretty much set up but we added many extras in readiness for sailing halfway round the planet.
Here is a drone panorama of our vessel, taken in the Whitsundays.
There was already a boat named Carpe Diem II on the Australian General shipping register, so we went with Carpe Diem Infinity as her new name.
