Our Adventure Starts Here
We are a family of five living full time aboard our s/v Hatchi. Hatchi is a Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41. We are Maik, Alexandra, Kais, Lila and our four legged poodle Luna.
Maik and I have always dreamed of circumnavigating by sail. We previously owned an Island Packet 31 in 2012. It took a couple of years of hard work to renovate and bring it to live-able conditions. We enjoyed our weekend life aboard our monohull, but we quickly realized that if we were to grow our family, we would need a lot more space.
It wasn’t until 2017, that found our new home a catamaran, in Tortola, BVI. She has been our full time home since 2017. There is a great story to how we came to the her Hatchi. You will have to read about it somewhere else on this site (Hint: Check out Kais’s bio).
Our dream of traveling full time, visiting exotic places, meeting new people and eating exotic foods is quickly approaching. We cannot wait to show our kids the world. We hope our love of traveling will influence them, and one day, they too will love exploring as much as we do.
We invite you to join us as we explore and share our view of the world. We welcome your support, suggestions and love as we embark on this crazy journey.

Our son loved the sound of sneezing and would say “Haachii” after each time we sneeze. In German the sneezing sound is spelled as Hatchi, so that is how the name came to be and it fits perfectly.
