What would you call to a guy that loves to circumnavigate non stop or a guy that circumnavigates and only stops for provisions and diesel, taking in those stops only the needed time for that purpose: A cruiser?

I know of some guys that prefer that to "cruising". I would call it voyaging and those guys voyagers. Most cruisers voyage to go cruising and there are some voyagers that prefer the voyage to the cruising, some voyage a lot and cruise very little. Some cruise a lot and voyage less.

A voyager has an intent and a purpose, a cruiser has a much more open schedule.

Some (and there are many) use the boat as a second house, have it on a nice spot and go always with the boat to the same near by places to pass nice afternoons on anchor. Those are not also cruisers according to the way I see it.
