Prydwen

Footprint Logo

Our current boat Purchased in 2007 and named with the conscientious travelers' saying "Leave only footprints, take only photographs" in mind. We hope to be mindful that we have an impact wherever we go, and wherever possible ensure that it is a positive one. After living on BabyCakes and Prydwen we learned quickly to have a small carbon (and other resources) "footprint", and although Footprint has many more facilities than we have ever had before (refrigerator, shower, pressure water), we also have solar and wind power generation options - so we hope to still be careful to limit our resource usage.

The Boat is a Gemini 105Mc - a 33.5' sailing catamaran, with a few additions (factory and our own) to ensure a comfortable home for us on our journeys

She was launched with "may she share with all who sail in her, safe passage, and a long life full of love, laughter and adventure"

We are really hoping that we will be able to entertain plenty of friends and family on her - especially now we finally have a spare 'guest room' - still tiny, but a whole room to yourself (well a bed and a patch of floor!)
