Sailing Mallemok

HOME | ZEILEN MAGAZINE | MAX MATROOS | E-PILOT

We are a Dutch family of three: Tim, Eveline and Max (5 years old).



2015 In the summer we left Amsterdam to start our liveaboard lifestyle on board our Endurance 35 ketch 'Mallemok'. After having navigated the inland waterways of The Netherlands, Belgium and France we reached Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhone at the end of November.

2016 We wintered in Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhone untill we set sail in spring. We cruised along the French and Italien coast down to Elba from which we crossed to Corsica. After spending some time in Northern Corsica we crossed back to the French riviera.

2017 We wintered in Beaulieu sur Mer and started cruising again in the beginning of April. We spent a few weeks in one of our favorite places, Imperia. From there we crossed over to Corsica and then made our way south to Sardinia. In June we had a great time around the Maddelena's en Bonifacio. Mallemok was on the dry in Castelsardo while we spent summer in Northern Europe. We decided to end our liveaboard lifestyle and leave the boat in Castelsardo for the foreseeable future. Max is now going to school full-time and our careers are reignited as we settle in the Netherlands. In autumn and around Christmas we had great holidays on Mallemok in Castelsardo.

We wrote an e-pilot about navigating the inland waterways of The Netherlands, Belgium and France, to inspire (and reassure) other sailors who want to take the same route.

We've set up a Facebook page to facilitate liveaboard families to meet each other in the Mediterranean.
