A Tour of SV Estrellita 5.10b

Below is a video tour of a SV Estrellita 5.10b - a 1983 Wauquiez Pretorien.

The entire time we owned this boat I intended to do a video tour.  On the day before I flew away from the boat (February 2016), leaving her for sale in Australia, I remembered to take a bunch of video to put together later.

Fast forward 1 year and 4 months later - this week I found that footage while backing up some photos, put it together and narrated it.

The video is a brief overview. Feel free to ask any questions about the boat or gear in the comments below. I also found video from our last passage (New Cal to Australia) which I will process eventually as well. For the rest of our videos, see our YouTube channel.


  1. Wow, great video. I sensed the amount of work you guys did to make this the fantastic boat it is.

  2. I realize it has been a long time since your last entry about cruising but I have a question. Nice thing about the net is stuff stays around a long time and it continues to be useful for others. In your explanation about the end of your cruise you mention if you cruise again you would choose a different boat based on your experience. I am approaching the time when I can retire and cruising is a possibility for the two of us. We do not yet have a cruising boat. I am curious what you would choose for a cruising boat if you decided to take that up again. Thanks, Kevin
