The Vessel

Sailing Vessel Texas is a 2001 Island Packet 420.   She is a beauty.  A true blue water, cutter rigged sailing vessel.

The Crew

We are David and Marianne Tansey, a couple of native Texans with a big dream:  Circumnavigate the globe.

The Journey

Plans can change.  But we have a rough first draft of the planned voyage...

Living Our Dream... Sailing Around the World!

There are things in this life that to everyone else make you crazy.  But to you, it means a fulfilled life.  Listen to you, not them.

All About The Boat

SV TEXAS is a 2001 Island Packet 420.  We named her after our beloved home state of Texas because we read that "real" sailors are referred to by their boat name (instead of their real names).   She is well equipped with solar, wind, water-maker, long range communications and Hydro vane.   She takes good care of us and we try to do the same for her.




Feel free to email us with any questions you have!

Where We Are Now...

In Houston, Texas... working, saving $ and preparing ourselves for the big adventure.
