    Ministry overview

    In 2016, YWAM Ships was gifted the s/y Ruach. The 37-metre schooner was intended to be operated out of Newcastle and deployed to Papua New Guinea. However for various reasons, Covid 19 is one of them, they have made the difficult decision to sell the vessel and focus on the other vessels in their fleet.

    They are particularly keen to see her used by another Christian ministry and would try to agree on suitable terms if anyone is interested, that said, they are looking to recover at least some of their costs associated with the delivery and maintenance of the vessel, which will go to furthering the work of the ministry.
