Equipment

Extra Cruising Equipment on Wild Too:

  • Gennaker and Spinnaker sails: To push us forward on the long transocean passages we have 2 large Gennakers (balloon like sails) with a Gennaker pole and a spinnaker on bord.
  • 600W Solar Panels: Since we do not and cannot sail from marina to marina we need to produce our electricity ourselves. Most of it is consumed by the autopilot and the 2 fridges plus the navigation equipment.
  • 600ah AGM Service batteries store the sun’s energy for the night
  • Watermaker: We produce our own drinking water from sea water via reverse osmosis. The water quality is better than most of the bottled water you can buy via filtration through micro membranes. Our expensive system produces 100l/h but requires lots of electricity. Therefore we still have to use the water thoughtfully. In addition we carry 1000l freshwater in our tank.
