Kaleo is For Sale

Some of you might have noticed a widget on the left-hand side of our page noting that Kaleo is now for sale.

Kaleo under sail along the southern tip of Long Island, Bahamas

Nearly two and a half years ago we invested in a capable Aloha 34 that would take us on adventures greater than we could imagine. She has safely and comfortably carried us over 3,000 miles from Kemah, Texas along the Gulf Coast, across the Gulf Stream and throughout the Bahamas as far south as the remote Jumentos, and now up the East Coast.

We had initial plans for a six month cruise and have inevitably extended it. What we’ve learned, accomplished, seen and experienced leaves us in awe, inspired and eternally grateful. Kaleo has served her purpose well.

As we wrap up our summer sail up the East Coast, we want Kaleo to continue her adventures under new ownership. She is a seaworthy cruising boat built and outfitted to carry her captain and crew on exploration. So rather than have her docked and growing a bottom beard while we’re states away, the plan (for now anyhow) is to continue north to Annapolis where we’ll put her on the hard in a safe and protected storage facility until a sale is final.

For prospective buyers, please see our “Kaleo is For Sale” page for detailed information on all of its systems, equipment lists, photos, and an asking price. Feel free to contact us with questions or to set a time to see Kaleo for yourself.

As for this blog, we still have a lot to share here. We’ll continue to post our progress over the summer, reflect on some share-worthy cruising material and resources that may help others live the dream, upload more photos from the adventures, offer insights into future cruising plans, and more.

We are humbled by your encouragement, prayers, and advice.  Thank you for joining us on this journey.

  1. Selling the boat?! We’ve so enjoyed your blog and you’ve been such an inspiration! Will you still be cruising in the future?

  2. Hi Cheryl, I know, I know. We adore Kaleo & she has served her purpose well. We’re ready to start some new adventures and may not be close enough to the ocean for this capable of a boat. We’ll be shopping for a new boat when we decide what body of water we’ll be near. All’s good :o).

    I spotted the widget a few days back and was saddened at the realization that your voyage really is coming to a close. I have really enjoyed being able to peek into your lives – Thanks!

  4. Thanks for your note and for joining us on these sailing adventures aboard Kaleo. While this voyage aboard her is concluding, we’re by no means giving up sailing or future plans of cruising. We’ve met some incredibly inspiring young families who are actively sailing about the world with their kiddos and we would love to follow in their footsteps soon. We’ll continue posting our progress, reflections, and plans here. Wishing you all the best :o).
