Ever dreamed of living on a yacht, but think you couldn’t afford it? Or think that it’s just not doable with a family?

After randomly watching the documentary Maiden Trip , this family of 5 from Adelaide, South Australia, made it their goal.

From being in debt, to now 2 years later they’re sailing the Caribbean.

In this episode they detail how their (new) dream came to fruition:

– How they got out of debt and the strategies they used to save

– Learning to sail in preparation for their tip

– Purchasing a boat suitable to live on

– The biggest costs that come with living on a boat, and

– Adjusting to some of the challenges that come with not just living on the water in another part of the world, but also a completely new way of life.


All this, and the highlights of their trip around the Caribbean

Check out their blog, Sailing to Roam… you’ll quickly see how life on a yacht can be a thing for the average family
