Captains Kate and Nate’s Sailboat Life and Charter Business

Now here is some super tiny living! Captains Kate and Nate live aboard their Hunter 28.5, which feels quite similar to van-size on the inside.

While it has everything they need — a stove, galley, bathroom and sleeping quarters — it’s pretty snug! Just proof that you can live with less than you think, and enjoy the open water.

The couple were flipping sailboats they buy at auction in Florida, but now charter their boat to Alaskan vacationers. You can plan a charter experience with them here. Be sure to check out the video tour of their sailboat with Tiny Home Tours below.

    Dude you need a bigger boat! I don’t mind tiny but I just couldn’t do it. If I’m not mistaken vans have more room. But it’s a very pretty boat, and to each their own.

      Haha my thing was the snug sleeping arrangement! I don’t think I could share that space with another human LOL

    Life is supposed to be part fun and part adventure. Other Critters know that, and for some reason most Hoomans have forgotten it. Congrats kids, you found a way!
