Route & Timeplan

Join us as crew member!

We offer the opportunity to get a taste of our lifestyle and sail with us to remote paradises in the Caribean! Regardless of your sailing experience you can join us and share our tour around the world for a limited time and without financial risks.

The costs to maintain Wild Too are pretty high  – annually about 25.000€ for maintenance.  This is why I have to ask from my crew a cost contribution. The cost share on Wild Too is 690e / week. Crew visiting again get a 10% discount.

Fuel will be covered by me. Provisioning is done by the crew together on the departure day – we will assist but not be involved if not needed.

These contributions do not cover my costs at all but help me to keep running. I hope for your understanding. I believe that our cost share is fair since our crew can enjoy sailing with an exceptional boat and enjoy our lifestyle for a limited time without financial risk but contribute a little to costs.
