Why "Dream Machine"? We thought about it for a couple of months before we picked out her name. We look forward to visiting her and the beautiful islands making up her sailing grounds. Reality is suspended and warped into a new - and better (?) - reality compared to our day to day lives. Stress and worries go away replaced by a sense of peace. All the details of our "normal" lives are replaced by much fewer and simpler choices. Is it a dream? The watch comes off the wrist after a couple of days - why care what time it is? You're on island time! The pace is definitely slower and you quickly adjust. You have arrived to an alternate reality.
"Dream Machine" is a 2017 Beneteau Oceanis 45. 3 Cabins and 2 heads as well as a convertible saloon that can make a 4th bed. She will comfortably handle 4 to 6 people and in a pinch could do up to 8. We routinely have had 6 people on her and she's great for that many. Eight sounds dreadful by the way ..... she may be 45 feet but she'll feel pretty small after a few days with that many people on board.
