Vessel Name: Pinta
Vessel Make/Model: Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 43DS
Hailing Port: Hamburg, Germany
Crew: Cpt. Heinz-Dieter Admiral Hafida
About: "Don't dream your life, but live your dream." That is what we are about to do. For a number of years we have dreamed of cruising. Our dream is about to become reality.
Extra: Pinta is a type Jeanneau 43DS sloop built in 2001. She is 43 feet (13m) long and a Deck Salon model; which means that instead of portholes in the deck for light and air the deck is raised and much higher and wider windows have been used to make the main salon larger with more volume and headroom.
