Because this is a brand-new design from the ground up, not simply a variation on an older model.  And while this may not be our boat, it’s mighty close.  And the owner of hull number one, S/V BLISS, along with a long line of future owners are all eager to see how she will handle.

These sea trials are all about testing the boat and the systems in every way.  Will she point, how is the motion and noise, how much regen will we many things!  HH will push everything to the max to ensure the vessel meets the safety and strength of their design specs.  Which includes flying a hull!

Needless to say, we are pleased as punch to be a part of this whole process and spoiler alert, she does not disappoint!


WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.

Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It's all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.

We've lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.

Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
