Become a crew member on a comfortable yet fast and safe ocean sailing yacht.

Many people dream of escaping their everyday lives by sailing off into the unknown on a yacht. Yet for most, such dreams are difficult to realise. Be crew/guest on a comfortable, yet fast and safe ocean sailing yacht S/Y Nora Simrad. We will bring you to dream destinations and off into the unknown. Sailing with us will involve you as crew with duties adapted to your abilities. It might get unexpected and rough at times – else it would not be an adventure – but our experienced crew will keep you safe and comfortable. As a reward you will see places unreachable by common means of transportation, get a new perspective on life and society and turn your dream into reality.

Collect miles, extend your sailing skills


Have you been sailing in coastal waters and the challenge of crossing an ocean is the next logical step? You are preparing for a sailing certificate and need mileage or you just want to learn to sail? Our experienced crew is eager to share their knowledge and teach you how to sail on a well-equipped oceangoing yacht in the most exciting waters of the planet. You have a choice between taking first steps by visiting beautiful islands in Indonesia to learning how to sail a yacht in gales and handle astro-navigation amidst the endless blue of the South Pacific Ocean.
