Langkawi Kedah Malaysia|
Our well maintained sailing yacht was built by the Feltz shipyard in Hamburg as a Scorpion III, designed as a motor sailor, made of solid steel. These series of boats are well known for their stability and ocean going ability. An ideal boat for circumnavigation and cruising.
The whole interior is a unique professional design, almost exclusively using teak wood. The layout is designed to accommodate five. Permanent living on it as a couple is quite comfortable. So we still do.
We are cruising in South East Asia, actually between Langkawi, Malaysia, and Phuket, Thailand.
