Though based on ancient drawings, Abora III will be equipped with modern navigation equipment. "We're not crazy enough to sail across the open ocean without any navigational equipment," Gorlitz said. The boat will have a galley, which is situated in the middle of the ship, and two "basket cabins" will provide sleeping accommodations for his crew of nine. There are no heads on board, but Gorlitz seems unconcerned about that minor inconvenience. "We have the biggest bathroom in the world right off the side of the boat," he said.
