About us

Meet the Crew!

We are an Australian, Eric, and a Brit, Lynne. We met in Tanzania, East Africa in 1993. Our dream, whilst working in a challenging environment, was to build our own catamaran and sail around the world!

We built SV Amarula in Australia and launched her in 2001. In 2002 we returned to Tanzania to do some charter work in the region alongside our Marine Consultancy business. After a number of years back in East Africa we finally sailed away from Tanzania in 2009. Another 2 years in South Africa and we set sail across the Atlantic in February 2012. Most of our earlier travels and projects are documented in the Captain’s Logs from our original website. We have recently revamped our website to make it more interactive and include more regular news and photos from our travels. All our updates are also posted on our Facebook page, along with extra photos.

Whilst we travel we continue to offer Freelance Marine Consultancy services, alongside our online business. For more information on either of these please contact us.

We are joined on our adventures by our 2 canine crew, Chui (our lovely Jack Russell cross or cross Jack Russell may be a more apt description at times!) and Scrumpy (a delightful, cheeky and scrumptious Jack Russell, who is rarely seen without his frisbee!).
