Captain & Charlie

Captain had already pursued a career in Architecture and embarked on his first personal building project when he met Charlie in 2010. With a healthy kick of Kiwi spirit and blinded by his 'baby blues', she joined in on the fun and with a determined dose of blood, sweat and a fair share of tears, five years and five fully renovated properties flew by! 

Having spent a chunk of that time living on building sites, designing and building their perfect family home,  it was a surprise to both of them that once it was finished they promptly put it on the market, sold it and…  brought a sailing boat. 

It had been a niggle of a dream they sometimes discussed, wanderer Charlie wanted to explore, Captain had outgrown his backpacking days so the consensus was to get hold of a floating 'nest' and set sail.
