3:33 Southern story: The Peace Pirate Espresso Ship

No lawns to mow, no rates to pay, seahorses and kawhai at your side and a tidy income. That's the life of Oliver Mitchell, new proprietor of Viva la Physalie (now officially Physalie, but dubbed The Peace Pirate Espresso Ship) - a 62 foot fishing-boat built in 1957 and made of 750-year-old French oak.

Olly bought Physalie five years ago as a houseboat, and has established a good reputation for his own 'Espresso Ship' brand of coffee.

The boat is said to have belonged to Jacques Cousteau in the 1960s, has sunk three times and held millions of dollars worth of fish - and Olly helps to keep the history alive.

Sage Forest walks the plank of the Peace Pirate Espresso Ship docked in Port Tarakohe, Golden Bay, for a mocha and a look-around.
