Saloon Paneling Done! – Episode 35 – Sailing Yacht Zora Rebuild

In this weeks episode we finally finish the saloon paneling, which makes the boat a whole lot cosier. We also entertain some special guests in the marina, in the form of the Figaro 3 racing yachts.

Check out our new website and blog, where Niamh goes over her side of the story and gives a better insight into why we are here in the first place. This week, there is a blog live that talks to why we decided to go for spray foam insulation.

Who are We?
We are Rhys (Skipper) & Niamh (First Mate) and we are on a mission to sail around the world, and share it through video, writing and photos.

Where are we?
We currently live in Kinsale on the River Bandon estuary, which is a small fishing village on the south coast of Ireland.

What’s the plan?
We are aiming to be on our way in 2020. There is a huge amount of work to do before we get there, but we are determined.


The Sailing Yacht Zora is a 38 foot steel blue water cruiser that was burnt and abandoned in the south of Ireland some 15 years ago. She was designed and built by the legendary Dick Koopmans of Holland, and carries a serious pedigree as a capable and safe deep ocean adventure vessel.

Join us a we breath new life into this legendary cruiser and take her where she was meant to be, out in the big blue oceans of this beautiful planet we call home

As always thank you so much for watching and don’t forget to subscribe
