SV Aluna is a 38′ sailing catamaran built by Beat Rettenmund and Beatriz Restrepo from 2003 to 2008 at the house of Mario Mendoza and Fe De Los Reyes in San Leandro, CA and launched at the San Leandro boat ramp on September 20, 2008.

The model Tiki 38 is designed by the James Wharram and Hanneke Boon of James Wharram Design. Aluna is built per plan with the exception of the rig, which was modified to carry the traditional Polynesian crab claw sails.

Aluna’s journey is also a human one. We are learning how to live freely without being out of touch. Because touching we need as human beings. So we connect at the places we visit and become part of the community, learning, discussing, changing, healing, contributing, observing, doing…

If you wish to support our journey and are financially above viability, please feel free to make a monetary donation through PayPal. We assure you that your contribution will be used very efficiently!
