We're offering Afternoon tea in the summer on our yacht Serenity.
About us:
We are a couple, Scott & Maria, looking to run a self-sufficient business on a private yacht in Brighton.  All profits made from sales go to our sustainability project.



WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACHIEVE?

~~~~~

We are looking to create a unique, fair and sustainable company that will operate from a yacht and promote the more affordable and sustainable modern lifestyle via showing people what it is really like to live on the boat. 

To begin with, we are offering crowdfunders exclusive rewards for their generosity:

- Exclusive branded merchandise: metal bottle openers, branded caps and smart polo-shirts

- Afternoon tea on a yacht in Brighton

- Weekend stays aboard in Brighton

All donors will receive a discount code for their contribution and exclusive discount on future activities.



WHERE?

~~~~~

We will start off this summer in Brighton Marina, with the future plans to visit other marinas around the UK. 


WHO ARE WE AND WHY SUPPORT US?

~~~~~

We both have catering backgrounds as well as 10 years combined experience in events, promotion and marketing industry working with world leading brands like Nintendo, SAMSUNG, Alpro, Able & Cole and other.

On our travels we crossed the deserts, climbed the mountains, but ocean is what always attracted us the most. Scott has done lake sailing when he was younger and lots of kayaking on his various trips around Middle East, India and South East Asia. He came across with living aboard when he was originally searching for a house. The house prices seem too high since he was spending most of the time at work, and renting a place wasn’t viable either since as an agency worker he spend more time on tours around the country and travelling abroad than at home. So he came across with living aboard. As a person who is living out of a suitcase/backpack, being on a boat with limited carrying capacity didn’t seem a big deal. Then he met Maria. She has volunteered for Atlantic Whale Foundation in Tenerife, working on the whale watching catamarans tracking local whale population and spreading the word about marine conservation among tourists. And that’s where she fell in love with the ocean. Throughout her university course she kept practicing surfing and freediving in Cornwall, Gran Canaria and France. She has also worked in Sri Lanka in a surf school, where she could practice her favourite watersports and explore the marine wildlife. Also being a minimalist, she loved the idea of living aboard, so the Sailing Serenity project was born. We are currently arranging finance after years of saving, downsizing to save up for the deposit. 

But we don’t want it to be just a sustainable, self-sufficient home, we want to share this lifestyle with you.

 

To do so, we will turn casual in-land experiences into a unique events with a personal touch for you and your family and friends.

With the approaching Chrirstmas and New Year, this could be a perfect present for your dearest & nearest!

HOW IS THE MONEY BEING SPEND? 

~~~~~

Funds raised through offering you yachting experiences will be used to upgrade boats' own eco-system by adding solar, wind, water desolation, lithium-ion batteries as well as cost reductions, safety equipment, overall maintenance and mooring fees. And, of course, your rewards!

We chose a yacht because of its own eco-system. They're efficient, sufficient and can also offer diversified opportunities.

 

If for any reason the yacht finance can't be secured or the Serenity project won’t be successful, we will personally notify you and refund our donors through the Crowdfunding platform.

REWARDS

~~~~~

We believe that "You do not take until you give" which is why we are offering rewards for our amazing donors for their patience and generosity.

You can choose your reward via crowdfunder between 4th November to 30th December. 

 

How it works!

1. Super easy! Donate via this Crowdfunder page

2. Select your reward/donation amount. 

3. Receive your reward (merchandise) or a booking form after the Crowdfunder campaign is successfully completed in end of January!

4. Use our booking form via our email and get ready for the experience in summer.

If you choose our apparel it will be sent out mid-end January. 

If the crowdfunder is not successful you will be given a refund!

Afternoon tea will mainly be Monday-Thursday & staying on board will be Thursday-Sunday summer 2019. Once the weekend stays are used we will then be able to offer the afternoon tea over the weekends.

However, the schedule will be negotiated with you to work out the best date & time for you.

We’re looking to offer the rewards to our Crowdfunders in summer 2019. Afternoon tea will mainly be Monday-Thursday & staying on board will be Thursday-Sunday. Once the weekend stays are used we will then be able to offer the afternoon tea over the weekends.
