How it all began

Captain Clemens bought Infinity on a shoestring budget in San Diego California in 2004.

To become a seaworthy vessel, the entire ship had to be gutted and all systems and the interior had to be replaced. Most parts used were bought second-hand and the labor employed was amateur and voluntary.

A lot of blood, sweat and tears were, and still are, involved in this ongoing process.

“The adventure was incredible and one of the best times in my life. As the world gets smaller, true adventures are harder to come by."

– – Andy JamiesonUK

"The opportunities aboard Infinity are endless. In every squeaky creaky nook and cranny there is a lesson to learn."

– Zoe LeechCanada
