Yachts for Life was birthed out of the heart to serve Pacific Island communities in a significant way. Having visited the outer islands over many years we identified hundreds of thousands of precious people who live in the smallest communities and contribute significantly to life as a whole in their respective nations through fishing, agriculture and skilled craftsmanship.
Our team of dedicated people seeks to visit these communities on a regular basis with the intent to be a blessing. This happens in many different ways:
We show that we care by simply visiting and encouraging people in their homes, help with community projects and teach a Biblical based leadership training seminar. We distribute Bibles, reading glasses and pray for people. We also work hard to encourage and support quality of life through maintaining the spirit of love and unity in each village community.
To get out there we use yachts as a means of transport. Yachts give us the freedom of scheduling, there are low fuel costs and in most cases they enable us to pull up close to a village.
Based out of Tauranga, New Zealand, our 2 yachts SY Mandolin (33' sloop) and SY Seahawk (53' yawl) are currently operating in Fiji.
We have plans to expand to other Island nations starting with Vanuatu.
To achieve the goal we partner with various other ministries including
Yachts For Life is run entirely by volunteers and relies entirely on donations for funding.
