If you don’t identify with either gender and don’t care who you share with, let us know, it might help us out.

What is the cashbox?

Fuel and harbour fees are unknown costs (we don’t know how often we will have to use the engines or how often we will stop in a harbour rather than a bay, all weather dependent).

We want to keep your spend to as low as reasonably possible. Rather than estimate these costs where the worst case scenario would have to be calculated and included in the ticket price we will work out these costs based on actual use which guests pay into an onboard cashbox.

Any questions always more than welcome, we are happy to help! E-mail us at [email protected] and we’ll be at your service!

If you feel like engaging in group activities you can, but we also totally understand it if you want to work by yourself for a while or do something without the group.
What do we do in the evenings?
Hang out with fellow Crew. Go fishing. Snooze on the net. Dig into a special meal at a local restaurant. If a deadline is looming, finish up a work assignment. The choice is yours to make!
Will the whole trip be planned out for us or do we have free time as well?
We have a lot of exciting things planned for you during our Coworkation but we made sure you have some free time as well to go off and discover the beautiful island by yourself as well. Most evenings are free and like we said before, you can always choose for some time for yourself whenever you want.
Are we in a harbour every night?
Whenever possible, we will drop anchor near land in a harbour or in a bay. But occasionally we cruise overnight to reach our next destination.
Can we drink alcohol on the boat?
Yes of course, however as we are a boat we cannot stock a lot. We do like to look forward and celebrate the end of the day with a sundowner.
I’m a vegetarian/vegan, can you cater for me too?
Yes, we will try to meet everyone’s dietary requirements. Vegetarian options should always be available. However, because we are a vessel we must take stock and sometimes we maybe in regions where food supplies are limited, so it is hard to guarantee diets like the Vegan diet.
What are the sleeping arrangements?
Coliving on a boat means space is limited, so.. we share! Cabin layout varies: two, three and four berths per cabin. We will endeavour to honour requests for sleeping arrangements. Feel free to also sleep on deck (when safe)!
I'm travelling solo, who will I share my room with?
We appreciate that gender is not binary, but for the simplification of this process we pair up guys with guys and gals with gals in twin rooms, unless you choose to book a room just for yourself. If you don’t identify with either gender and don’t care who you share with, let us know, it might help us out.
Will there be desks and chairs?
The space on each boat differs slightly. There are the breakfast tables to work from or maybe you want to work at the waters edge with your computer on your lap.
Can I recharge my laptop and other devices?
Yes there are charging points on the boat for this.
How does the internet work?
Our technology partner GlocalMe will provide a WIFI hotspot on board. Whilst we are sailing close to the shore we can access 3G/4G data networks but expect varying quality of connections as we sail. If you have a Spanish SIM card you can also use this as your hotspot.
What should I bring?
Laptops are a must – and any other hi-tech gear that you might want to bring along. Space is limited aboard the catamaran, so please leave your hard-shell suitcases and trolley cases ashore. Dress is casual – so pack light.. and leave your suits and cocktail dresses behind! You’ll spend most of your time in shorts, t-shirts, swimwear.. and bare feet! We don’t expect it to be cold but one long sleeved top is advised.
