When these empty nesters moved from Texas to California, they never imagined they’d choose full-time life on the water! But they discovered that purchasing a boat home was far more affordable than they’d originally thought, and they are now celebrating 5 years of marina life.
After two years in a smaller boat, they upgraded to 1988 DeFever 44 Trawler. It has a large main bedroom, a forward berth for guests, and two heads. In their kitchen (galley) you’ll find a bunch of adorable red retro appliances which they use to cook and entertain their friends.
And their decks, of course, provide an awesome place to enjoy the sunny San Diego weather. Watch their tour below!
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.
