Owner Comments +
Areroui was a long built of about 14 years.
During the built a lot have changed in our lives.
Three new members were added to our family and our home was relocated twice.
Obligations have deprived us from enough free time for cruising.
The boat was launched in 2021 on the island of Crete, Greece and made a journey of about 150 miles to the harbour she is now on the easter part of the island.
She is strong and the modifications to the plans added to the liveability for longer periods of cruising.
The interiors of the galley and heads are not complete yet as they need some final arrangements, plumping and final coats of paint.
Also the electrics are rather basic.
I will continue to upgrade her every season though and take her to day cruises until someone is willing and capable of taking over her and sailing her to what she is really build for.
