Welcome to our site.

Our catamaran GONYONDA was launched on February 22nd, 2013 after a 7 year labour in our backyard shed.

The idea to build a boat was born from a love of surfing, fishing, diving, sailing and travelling.

Throw marriage, 3 children, and life (in general) into the mix, and you get a motley crew (family of 5) striving to become a carefree, life-lovin’, adventurous pack of sea gypsies.



We hope you enjoy reading about our travels to date.
