Our boat

Eventyr tour

Under sail in Bequia, Grenadines
Eventyr (Norwegian for Adventure) is a 1987 Island Packet 31. We took possession of her in Spring of 2013 and have been working feverishly to outfit her for extended cruising. She is a 34' length overall, 11' beam, sloop rigged, full keeled sailboat built to hold up to offshore cruising. A Yanmar 3GM30F diesel engine provides power when the wind is uncooperative. Down below she sleeps 7 with an enclosable second double berth for privacy if others want to join us aboard.

  1. Well dang that is one clean engine. Heck the whole boat is awesome looking. Did it look that well when you accepted it??

    1. Thanks Roadkill! It definitely didn't look like that when we accepted it. This picture was after hours of work and thousands of dollars by Down Jersey Marine Diesel. No engine problems yet (knock on wood).

  2. I can see that you are a specialist at your field! I am propelling a site soon, and your data will be exceptionally valuable for me.. A debt of gratitude is in order for all your help and wishing all of you the accomplishment in your business. Mercury outboard boat parts
