A live-aboard Catalina 25' sailboat mini-tour from Kevin Coy (Small Space Living)

Reader Kevin Coy (and fellow tiny-house enthusiast) recently sent me this lil' video tour of a Catalina 25' cabin-cruiser- as a possible ultra-tiny, budget friendly alternative to small/micro-housing/homes. I'm posting this too, as we recently had a discussion on the very same idea here on living in dry-docked boat cabins (where, again, in some cases you can even get these boat shells for FREE on craigslist). Yes, these spaces are going to be far too tiny for most, but hey, if you're single, or an adventurous duo, by living in one of these even for a brief period of time, you'd no doubt save a TON of money. Anyway, the video starts out a little "earthquake shaky", but hang in there, as Kevin gives us a nice tour throughout this little sailboat.

Another part of the beauty of tiny sailboat living, is that if you're NOT handy at all, these come fully equipped and ready for use -as opposed to building your own tiny home- especially if time is something you don't have much of. In water, they're obviously mobile too!

  1. Good thing they cleaned up the place before they shot the video. LOL

  2. Added features like buying boat accessories not only dress up your boat, they also add to its value in case you wish to sell it sometime.

  3. Cool! I am really interested in live aboard. This post really amazes me. I can't wait to live in the sea.
