Hi, we are Crissi & Felix! We live and work in Berlin and aboard our Allures44, a french sailing yacht with an aluminium hull and a glassfiber deck, made to circumnavigate the world.
We are both entrepreneurs and run our businesses from wherever we are. With our company RIDE, we help people to build the financial foundation needed to pursue their own dreams. We believe time is best spent exploring our beautiful planet.
Follow our trip around the world below and say Hi if we happen to come your way!
Our boat is an Allures 44 built in 2004. We bought her from the French government after the owner passed away without heirs.
What is special about Allures is that the hull is made from just 6 pieces of aluminium while the deck is made from glasfibre composite. The boat has a variable draft ranging from just 1m to 3m and can fall dry.
It is fully equipped for long distance cruising (550L Diesel and water tanks, solar panels, watermaker, saillocker, radar and a lot of other gear).
Our trip started in St. Martin. From here, we sailed around the Caribbean, visiting St. Barth, Eustatia, Guadaloupe, Anguilla, before heading to the BVIs, USVIs and north to the Turks and Caicos, Bahamas and Miami. We leave her in New York and Boston for the summer.
After two seasons in the Bahamas, we will take her back to Europe, Berlin Summer is next!
