The boat is now sold. But we're sure the new owners will have many happy times onboard. We can now reflect on all the cruising we did in some beautiful areas of the world. As well as the challenging passages we undertook.

We have really appreciated all the crew who have helped particularly on the longer passages. We hope you have taken home wonderful memories of your time on Papillon !!!
