WELCOME ABOARD! Believe it or not, we’ve never shared a tour of our boat. We finally got her “look’n schmick” (that’s Australian for “look’n good”) and we thought we would give you a tour of our home. Throughout the video we show you how we chose to set up our Outremer, what options and customizations we recommend, and talk about the reasons we selected this boat. Welcome to Archer, a 2014 Outremer 51 performance cruising cat!

ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on a performance catamaran named “Archer” and sharing our adventures in family-friendly episodes every Tuesday!
OUR ROUTE: We departed the Boston area of the United States and sailed south to the Caribbean and then west through the Panama Canal. We have dealt with massive repairs in the South Pacific, the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a Category 5 Cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising in Australia.
OUR PAST: You may remember us as “SV Honeymoon?” Ten years ago (“before kids”), we sailed a Lagoon 380 named Honeymoon halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the very first “sailing channels.” We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with kids.
