Eight Years Living in Their Sailboat


This post contains affiliate links.

Sonya was in her Sophomore year of college and was looking to buy a boat to live in. She ran into Jack, who had just bought a boat that day. Taking it as a sign, they decided to move onto that boat together and start sailing. Eventually, they upgraded to the Passport 42 you’ll see below. Altogether, they’ve been living full-time on a boat for 8 years.

Their time on the ocean has changed their perspective on sustainability, and now they’re on a mission to convert their boat to an entirely electric system and get rid of the need for fossil fuels. They’re quick to repair instead of buying new things, and they cook from scratch and shop plastic-free. Enjoy the tour below!
