Join us as crew member!

We offer the opportunity to get a taste of our live style and sail with us to the last undiscovered paradises of the world! Regardless of your sailing experiance you can join us and share our tour around the world for a ristricted time without financial risks. 

(most of the passages below can also be split up as 2 week trips or adopted within possible limits to your timeframe)

 

The costs to maintain Wild Too are pretty high  – annually about 25.000€ for maintenance.  

This is why I have to ask from my crew a cost contribution which becomes less the longer the crewmember stays.

 

 

The costshare on Wild Too is 690e / week. Crew visiting again gets a 10% discount.

Fuel will be covered by me. When there are more than 3 crew joining food is shopped and cooked by the crew – we will assist but not be involved if not needed.

If less than 3 crew joining and if the crew wishes we can do like on Wild One with a 60e/person cruising kitty and we do the provisioning.

 

These contributions do not cover my costs at all but help me to keep running. I hope for your understanding.

I believe that our cost share is fair since our crew can enjoy sailing with an exceptional boat and enjoy our lifestyle for a restricted time without a financial risk but sure has to contribute a little.
