DESTINY For SALE - Specifications and Inventory.

Unfortunately, the time has come and we must sell 'Destiny' and move on. We have had seven fabulous years together, during which time we have visited most of the available countries bordering the Mediterranean. Some countries have remained politically unstable or otherwise unsuitable, but we have done our best to see as much as we can.
We have no desire to cross the Atlantic to the Caribbean and the US, so we have made our decision. But we will miss the lifestyle and so many friends that we have made along the way.
