Before Motu Iti, Amelia’s parents had cruised and sailed two other bigger 40 foot sailboats. One cruise was to the Bahamas for a year with a young family, the others summer cruises as a couple and with a young family.
They chose Motu Iti because her smaller size makes her easier to handle and take care of. Here is a video discussing the best aspects of downsizing to a smaller sailboat!! And, see Motu Iti’s blog on the topic here.
We are excited to share with everyone that MOTU ITI has officially left on their cruise this winter. After a lot of work and planning, their cruising dreams have become a reality. They were the boat we featured in our “I’m On A Boat” Youtube series.
Their small sailboat is a Camper Nicholson 31. Check out their blog at www.sailmotuiti.com!
