Living on a Self-Sufficient Sailboat for 10 Years + FULL TOUR




Brian and Karin Trautman have been living on a sailboat for 10 years, and their boat is set up so they can be off the grid in remote places for months at a time with solar and wind power providing electricity, a water maker that turns salt water into fresh water, multiple freezers and loads of storage space for food, and even a small washing machine on board!

They’ve sailed SV Delos – a 53′ sloop rig ketch – 83,000 nautical miles which is the equivalent of circling the earth at the equator more than 3 times. Their latest adventures include sailing as a family with their 6-month baby, Sierra, and outfitting the boat with a heater so they can explore the Arctic this summer after several years in the Tropics.

If you want to follow SV Delos, and support their amazing vlog-style documentary project about the liveaboard lifestyle, we’ve included links to all their pages here:

Thanks so much for watching and please stay safe!

    First time watching this channel. Pretty cool idea.

    What is the audience consensus on their relationship? Do you think they secretly hate each other and are now just kind of stuck with each other? Just a question, like I said, I've only watched 1 video. Let me hear everyone's input please.

    Please be careful while walking on the beach you might encounter stonefish and some harmful species maybe the man know it.. But Just don't step on dark rocks.. I admire you by the way

    Really great video. I wish I had the guts! I had no idea it is that expensive ($2500) a month to be on the boat. Very very cool, thanks
