Sindbad has been our home and life for 25 years during which time we circumnavigated once for 10 years with our two children. We are currently anchored in Palau. Sindbad was originally built as a coastal cargo vessel. We purchased her in Denmark and gradually converted her into a beautiful, comfortable, multi option money making home. We ran a successful sunset dinner cruise for 30 passengers for five years in St. Martin before we decided to set sail from the Caribbean in 1996; I have used her for salvage work, exploration charters and a wood working shop. Today the cargo hold has been converted into a studio and art gallery for my copper sculptures. Sindbad is more than a fabulous home. She provides an exciting lifestyle full of adventure. At an honest 2 litres per mile she is relatively inexpensive to operate. A 15,000 litre fuel tank gives years of operation, 5,000 litres of water which we catch from rain and filter. Solar panels and a wind gen. Mean we only run our 7.5 kw generator for approximately 3 hours every three days. The systems aboard are simple, sensible and very efficient. She has a Thrige auto pilot and Svendborg steering gear which has run non stop for 25 years maintenance free.

Deck Gear  Main deck winch forward is low press. Hyd and is driven from a take off on the Gardner. Now it is used to run the wire anchor drum for the big Fisherman and to lift the lifeboat aboard. It also has two drums which we use to put up the mainsail. It's a very solid piece of kit.
Remarks  Of course the heart of this ship is the 8L3B Gardner, which has operated day in and day out for me fo 24 years and has never given an ounce of trouble. It's never been opened and has never had any need for replacement parts or mechanics. After two circumnavigations and countless other voyages the engine does not even smoke! It burns an honest 2 litres per mile at 6 to 7 knots. This engine has never let me down and with the superb hydraulics aboard it is the easiest vessel to operate that I've ever owned. I get underway alone quite often.
Sindbad is a beautiful old piece of the past. Solidly and exquisitely built by craftsmen long gone. She must be seen to be appreciated., Her wheelhouse is solid teak wit 10 bronze 2ft X 2 ft ports all around; the exterior is 2" mahoghany planking. The varnished overhead covers the side decks and the large aft area which has a circular table and can seat six for dinner in a most romantic setting. She is an ideal home for a family to cruise the world or could be easily converted for charter, diving, salvage, a dinner cruise, air B&B, or as of late into an art gallery...
