Hanse 455 Handover & Checks

Remember Fi, El and Aiden?

The young family who sold up everything in Sydney and bought a Hanse 455 yacht to live the dream and sail around the world?

Well, they’ve picked up their yacht in Slovenia and are on their way …

Here’s an update.


And They are Off...First Port Piran, Slovenia

And They are Off...First Port Piran, Slovenia

They’ve completed all the handover checks and Tranquilo has her name proudly on show for all to see.

El has been up the mast to check the shrouds! Just look at that shot!

They’ve done all the test sails and have sailed into their first port – Piran in Slovenia.

The family is currently heading south to explore the Kornati islands in Croatia.

Introducing Tranquilo

Fil. El and Aiden have posted their first video episode on You Tube and it’s a great insight into their new life on board ‘Tranquilo’.

In this video Fil and El introduce us to their new yacht. You get to meet the family, find out why they decided to sail around the world and how they came up with the name Tranquilo.

At 07:13 El gives us a tour around the spacious interior of  ‘their new home’. Stay tuned until the end as they step ashore and explore their first port of call, Piran.

In the next video Phil says they will cover the commissioning and take a look at some of the equipment on board Tranquilo.

You can follow Fil, El and Aiden’s sailing adventures  on Instagram, Facebook and You Tube. Their fabulous blog is a great read – full of great information if you are thinking of doing the same!
