Estimated departure date is Feb 1. If you know of anyone that is qualified and available, please have them contact Robert

WTF is the point of having an ocean going vessel without bikini’s or rod holders. Seems like a huge waste.

Its over 7000 miles. At 8 knots its about 900 running hours or about 41 days (if running continuously). Add about a week.

Which model?

The 60ish foot boats don't carry much fuel imho (1000 gal).

You are grossly underestimating the time involved and you will need one hell of a captain to run 24 hrs a day for 41 days.

You will need at least two captains (at least in the U.S.A.)

I have friends that are captains on long range boats out of san diego they could get you a long ways and be in familiar waters (to them).

One thing you have working for you is that if swells are from typical direction you will be going downhill.
