Navy Serviceman And His Epic Boat Home, “Toko”

When he lived in Japan, Joe lived the #vanlife, travelling around the country. So tiny living is nothing new to him. When he wanted a spot to live in the States, he ended up choosing 36ft, 1982 Ed Munk offshore yacht — named Toko — which he has lived on for the past year.

As a Navy Serviceman, he knew a lot about large boats and the rules of sea, but he’s learned a lot since making a smaller boat his home sweet home. For the most part, he stays close to land for his job, but he can pick up and sail away for a day or a week whenever he’d like! Now that’s a cool life.

Be sure to watch the video of the interior of boat below, where he has two bedrooms, a salon, head and galley with a pretty large fridge/freezer! Thanks Tiny Home Tours! Follow Joe on Instagram here.

    Absolutely wonderful! I, too, envy you the freedom to be on the water whenever you want and to travel by boat. Great job on the upgrades. The entire boat is beautiful and so organized, and you have done some very clever things to it. Safe travels and here’s hoping the sisters can join you soon!
