Monara making plans... 

On July 1st, 2021, Monara will leave the comfort of the Antwerp harbour, for a 2 year expedition around the world.

Year 2

We are convinced that along the way, dreams for year 2 will be made. 

Already some crew members are pulling the captains sleeve, with requests for Hawai, California, Canada British Columbia , Japan, Indonesia, Maldives, Seychelles, Madagascar, South Africa and so on. 

Others even dream of the North West Passage above Alaska. 

Maybe we should get some world tour experience first, before planning year 2...
