Ship

 

Infinity is a 120 ft. sailing ketch built in 1977 in California. She is the largest Ferro-cement ship in service today at 200 tons with a sail-area of 400 m2. She is built tough, sails well and has proven herself in the roughest storms both at sea and at anchor. Infinity has sailed in ice-flows of Antarctica, by reefs and atolls, even in rivers and fjords. She has been a reliable base-camp and a cosy home to over 200 crew and community members including children in the remotest of regions. She is effectively equipped and carries two large tenders, a 19 ft. fibreglass boat with 50 HP outboard and a 16 ft. Zodiac with 40 HP outboard. Her handcrafted hardwood interior boasts ample communal spaces that include a cosy library, a large project room, and a 360° panorama-view saloon with dance-floor. There is an open galley with pizza-oven, fridge and freezer, and a workshop complete with tools and welding equipment. Accommodation is found in 12 roomy triple, double and single cabins each with power and fans. Inifinity’s exterior decks are spacious with a dive-station, swim-platform, shaded areas and a crow’s-nest in the rigging. She is powered by a 450 HP V10 MAN diesel engine and equipped with a 20 kW 3-phase marine generator, a water-maker producing 220 L/h and a 16 CFM SCUBA compressor. 25-man life raft, safety equipment, medical oxygen, SCUBA-dive-gear, kayaks, surfboards and a film projector complete the outfit.
