How it all started:
In January 1997, in the Caribbean: we met on a sailing trip and fell in love.
We decided very quick to look for a boat and by September we were the proud owners of MOMO.
We found her in Spain, advertised there by a Swiss family. She looked to
be reliable on the Atlantic and in the Mediterranean, but needed some work
on the inside/cabinets. MOMO was exactly what we were looking for!
After stopping our businesses in Germany we moved in February 1998 with all
our belongings to Spain and in three months we revived most of the interior.
After one last month at home we moved into our new floating home in July.
Elephant and Penguin, that's our crew.
