James & Claire aboard Pendana

I have been fortunate in my corporate career to be able (in the main) to work with far smarter people than myself and as such, I was lucky enough to be able to retire early so that we now have the time to pursue our lifelong passion of being on the water.

Both my wife (Claire) and I have owned boats most of our adult lives. From the early days of owning a Bertram 25 to a Magnum 35 sports boats and finally a Riviera Passagemaker 46.  Once retired, we started our intense search for the perfect Nordhavn 62, and thankfully found Pendana.

We hope you enjoy this blog as we travel aboard Pendana to fantastic far away places.  If there is anything you would like to know please drop me a line via email to

Safe travels.

James & Claire
