About Ananda

36′ Nauticat Motorsailer – “Ananda”

We had the pleasure of owing this boat from 2006 to 2016. We had many great adventures on Ananda and countless memories. I intend to maintain my stories about Ananda on this new website. Working on the website keeps me off the streets and, who knows, someday there may even be an “Ananda II”.

Fair winds everyone!


Ananda Under Sail

The Sailing Vessel Ananda (S/V Ananda) is a 36′ Nauticat built in 1983.

On this website you will find many pages and blog posts that share my experience in sailing and maintaining Ananda. Over the years I have benefited from the knowledge and experience that other boaters have been kind enough to share with me. This is my modest way of preserving and passing on that information to others.

You will also find pages and blog postings about other activities, trips and interests of mine.
