Our Story

Kelly Girl & Captain Kelly
Kelly Girl & Captain Kelly

We’re Kelly and Kelly Waterhouse and back in 2003 we sold our home for a life on a boat.

We lived aboard, Moorea, (a 35′ Dufour Sloop) dock side for 2 years, then saved enough money for a 4 year circumnavigation around the world.  With some skill and a lot of luck, we managed to sail 35,000 nautical miles and visited 30 countries.

Now we are planning a new adventure on board Trini, a 42′ Whitby Ketch.  She is an old and bigger boat that needs a lot of work.  New sails, dodger, refrigeration…the list goes on.

This site will have posts of Trini’s Refit, our experience of Living on Boats and will be updated with our travels around the world (my site just crashed and I have to recreate the voyage pages).

To learn more on how we transition from a life on land to a life on a boat, read my first book – Sailing The Waterhouse: Swapping Turf for Surf.  To find out more about our world voyage, read my second book – Sailing The Waterhouse: South Until the Butter Melts.  Both are available on Amazon
