Chucking out long office hours and kids’ school commutes, the Herne family lives life in a different way – traveling the world on a yacht. Parents James and Hannah along with children 10 year old Joshua, 6 year old Sadie and 4 year old Jacob, love their yacht life. They have already visited thirty-nine nations and covered 25000 nautical miles along their path.
The pair began their yacht journey from the United Kingdom to St Helena, where James is from. They have carries on their journey since that time. At present, they are berthed at Seaview Marina, Lower Hutt. In fact, they have been there since December 2014.
When they came in New Zealand, last year, it had been sixteen years since Hannah had come to New Zealand. This is the very first time that James and the kids are coming here.
