From Pittwater to Sailing in the Med

With Yacht Share Mariner you can cruise the Mediterranean in luxury for a fraction of the price, and that’s just what Peter and Jinko did!img_3838

Peter and Jinko have owned a Hanse 400, ‘Luna Paradiso’ on Pittwater for the last 6 years.‘ Luna Paradiso’ is their first yacht and Jinko was completely new to sailing when they got her…

Fast forward six years and just look at Jinko now!


What about the size of the Hanse 575

Jinko was nervous of the idea of the size of the Hanse 575 and went to see the Moody 54 at the Sydney Boat Show this year to get an idea of how big a 575 was.

Her verdict? “Enormous” were her first words…

Peter was sure he could handle it solo and that Jinko would soon get used to it…

Now he says he is not sure he can get her back to land!

Yacht Familiarisationimg_3950

Boarding a new large luxury yacht for the first time can be a bit daunting, with all the systems, switches and gauges.

So Yacht Share Mariner arranged for a Greek skipper Dimitri to accompany Peter and Jinko for a few days (at YSM’s expense) to show them the ropes, so to speak, and to introduce them to the Greek islands and customs … not to mention a few fabulous tavernas.

Why do a yacht share?

Peter and Jinko travimg_4267el a lot and said they always wanted a bigger boat in different waters but found it hard to justify one outright for so little time.

They enjoy being just the two of them aboard so were definitely going to stay with a Hanse.

This yacht share proved the perfect answer and the different locations appealed – for their first month they have chosen the Greek Islands and look pretty happy about it.

The yacht has only just been completed and this is the maiden share owner voyage.

Next year Peter and Jinko will be sailing the 575 from Sibenik in Croatia!

Of course they are keeping their beloved 400 ‘Luna Paradiso’.

The best of all worlds!
