Take us wherever your heart desires.  That’s what Captain Mark said right before he put me at the helm.  Never, did I ever think I would be behind the wheel of 67-ton yacht, but here I am!

We’re island hopping today and get to see what it takes to get this ship moving…and it’s a completely different world.  The sheer size is one thing but, add in the weight and deep draft of S/Y Millennium and it requires a new mode of thinking in comparison to our catamaran Curiosity.  It’s a fun challenge, and fascinating to experience something so familiar yet so foreign.

It’s a spectacular day with blue skies and even deeper blue waters.  Why not join us for a cruise?


Millennium is for sale!

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    Super interesting videos about Mark’s boat! Hope he gets what he wants out of it.

    PS, I’m with Sloop – I’ve often thought a long loop of rolling ocean waves at dawn or twilight would be an awesome relaxation … thing (calling it a tool doesn’t sound relaxing!). Or the prow plowing through and slapping at waves. So … basically anything that lets me vicariously enjoy being a passive passenger 🙂

    Happy for you guys to finally get off land again!

    Hi Nikki – Very cool videos – I await patiently for Jason to hide your bras 🙂 Im a patron because of this! Hope you get to your boat soon – the wait must be painful, by that time NZ should be able to welcome you

    That is a first in a long time . The minimal comments you have this video!

    Very cool boat and Mark seems just as cool, laid back and enjoyable to be with. In this video the water was too beautiful. The surfing was to minimal and this video was to short.
    You guys were definitely having fun though. At least you are keeping fit sailing on other people’s boats at this crazy time in our lives.
    Best, Safe and Well..

    Seems like a fun boat. I’m not used to waiting for new videos to come out. Have you ever considered posting some raw video between posting edited videos? For instance, 20 minutes of people surfing or maybe some waves on a beach. Almost like a fish tank or yule log video – Wynns style. I could definitely see me putting that on while I work. I don’t know if the cost of the bandwidth would be worth it, but something to consider.

      Does anyone know where the photo next to my name is coming from? I’d like to change it, but I don’t know where the comment section is pulling it from.

    That is a badass boat!! I just spent the day out on my new-to-me boat with friends (social bubble friends). Swam and ate and enjoyed the sun. I totally get why you would want to make this a lifestyle! Thanks for the vids!

    Can almost smell the salty sea air when watching your adventures. From the beautiful sunrise to sunset (and the all important sundowners) the ocean swells to a flat calm, you both have a way of capturing it in your vlogs, for which I’m ever thankful. Each week I tune in for your latest vlog, wondering what you’ll be doing next, you never disappoint!!! Being on such a lovely big boat must be daunting and inspiring at the same time, but knew you’d be able to handle it 😊
