I promised a post about the boat and how we live on her for those of you who have not had the pleasure of spending much time afloat, so here it is. I'm sorry it took so long.
Sirène, our home for the next 8 months, is a 2004 Beneteau 37 foot long fiberglass sailboat. In order to live on the boat we have had to simplify our day-to-day life to fit into a very small space, 220 square feet belowdecks to be precise. Included in this volume of space are two berths (bedrooms), a main cabin, a galley (kitchen) and a head (bathroom).
The 27 horsepower diesel engine that lives under the ladder (stairs) to the cockpit.
So that is our space belowdecks, it may seem small but it is perfect for the two of us...well unless we are not getting along, but then as they say...no boat is big enough if you aren't getting along. Fortunately we get on pretty well most days ;)
What do you think? Could you live in this space for a few months?
