Grab your towel!

Couple with dog sail their Lagoon 380 catamaran in the Florida Keys

This is the story of Matt, Lucy and Hastings, the crew of the sailing catamaran “Independence”. “Inde”, as her friends call her, is a 2005 Lagoon 380 S2, a 38 foot long French-built beauty. 

During a late-night, can’t-sleep internet walkabout, Matt found the blog of a couple who quit their jobs and sailed to Australia. We realized all our favorite memories were from time spent on our 21ft powerboat cruising the waters off south Florida, and made a 10 year plan to buy a live-aboard sailboat. With some sacrifice and quick maneuvering, the timeframe shrank to 1 year. You only live once, right? We sold our house, ditched most of our stuff, and moved into a cheap apartment while getting to know Independence

Does this sound like a great idea to you? Grab your towel, your flippy floppies, and your nautical themed pashmina afghan, it’s about to go down!
