Welcome to PAOMIA website

PAOMIA is a 16 metre blue water ocean sailing yacht built in 1993 by Amel. This blog will give an insight to living aboard a sailing yacht and our sailing adventures. We are typical people, a family of 4 from Ireland, who had a dream! Our dream was to purchase a sailing yacht and live aboard for months at a time. We are now living full time on WHUATI.

If you have a dream........just do it!
