We're Duca and Roberta, a Brazilian couple who purchased a 44ft steel sailboat (Dinieper Tropic 1200) that was neglected for over 22 years. After spending 2 years refitting her, we named her Odd and sailing along the Brazilian coast for a year and a half. We took a 13-day passage to the Caribbean and explored islands for 6 months, where we unexpectedly received an offer to buy our boat. So, we sold our beloved Odd and moved to France to start the building of our brand-new 43ft Aluminum Deck Saloon sailboat. Meta Chantier Naval will be responsible for building the aluminum components (hull, rudders, and keels), then we will do ourselves all the systems, furniture... As the boat construction will take a few months we are embarking on a new project to have a place to live. We purchased a van and will be transforming it into our tiny house on wheels.
We hope to inspire others to follow their dreams.
