OUR BOAT

The first seagoing yacht in our fleet could not get an easy task, so already this year Water Lily will undergo a series of modifications in order to set off around the world as early as this fall!

s/y Water Lily

Our beautiful Lily is a yacht from the now defunct Greek shipyard "Dromor", precisely the model Apollo 12. So far it has sailed in Greece and Croatia, from where it was brought to Poland, where we came into its possession.

Our plan is to make this vessel a completely self-sufficient cruiser, on which we will be able to carry out our daily lives and visit the remotest corners of the planet for more than a year and a half.

Lenght
11,80 m

Liczba kajut:
3

width 
3,35 m

Sailing type
slup

Max. crew
8 people

Production date
1989

Sails set on the Water Lily:

We have two sails on our yacht (at the time we started modifications). The first is a furling-in-the-stay, oversized genoa, which works perfectly when sailing hard upwind. The second sail is a much smaller (also furling, but in the mast) mainsail. The planned set of sails for the round-the-world voyage are:

  • small jib
  • actual genoa
  • fok sztormowy.

Anchorage:

At the current moment, a 20kg Danforth is doing the main anchor for us, which will eventually take the prestigious place of the spare anchor, and the main anchor is to be a 35kg Rocna along with 70m of chain + 30m of anchor rope.

Interior layout:

The Water Lily is a just under 12-meter long, divisible sloop, which below deck has two aft double cabins, one bow double cabin and sleeping space for two in the mess. We also have two bathrooms (including one, the bow one with a shower) and a galley with a stove and oven.

Residential equipment:

Z udogodnień mamy tu między innymi webasto (jachtowe, olejowe ogrzewanie), dzięki któremu na jachcie można mieszkać nawet podczas mrozów na zewnątrz. W kuchni znajduje się głęboka lodówka, byśmy mogli przechowywać w niej zapasy żywności. Komfort prądowy zapewnia nam solidny bank ogniw LiFePO-4 o pojemności 600Ah spięty z inwerterem 800W od Victron Energy, dzięki czemu prąd w gniazdkach mamy nawet podczas żeglugi.

Safety equipment:

Na jachcie posiadamy przede wszystkim oceaniczną ośmioosobową tratwę ratunkową SEA-Safe, radio vhf Standard Horizon, system AIS od EM-trak, radiopławę EPIRB, transponder radarowy SART oraz komplet gaśnic. Do nawigacji używamy programu openCPN na laptopie, mobilnego navionicsa, a w sytuacji braku prądu, nawigację prowadzimy na mapach papierowych.

The second sail is a much smaller (also furling, but in the mast) mainsail. The planned set of sails for the round-the-world voyage are:

  • actual genoa
  • storm jib
  • trysail
  • gennaker or code0 - inlcuding spibom

Residential equipment:

Among the amenities we have here is a webasto (yacht oil heating), so that we can live on the yacht even when it's freezing outside. There is a deep refrigerator in the kitchen so that we can store food supplies in it.

Safety equipment:

On the yacht we mainly have an eight-person life raft, a vhf radio, an AIS system and a set of fire extinguishers. For navigation, we use openCPN software on a laptop, mobile navionics, and in a power outage, we navigate on paper charts.
