Cabin Tour – Living aboard a Nonsuch 26 Swallow Sailboat





A guided tour of the cabin of Ben Stookey’s Nonsuch 26 liveaboard cruising sailboat. Although wanting through his library of cruising publications, Ben highlights and remarkably recommends Annie Hill’s amazing ebook “Voyaging on a Compact Cash flow”

Ben Stookey was launched to sailing at a pretty youthful age by his parents. His father sailed a 21 foot sailboat from England to Antigua in the Mini Transat Race in 1977. When Ben was 14, his mom and dad bought a boat in Finland and they spent a long time cruising all about Europe. Ben’s initial yr of high faculty was in Spain. Right now, Ben lives aboard a Nonsuch 26 named ‘Swallow.’ He is at present cruising the US East coast, and earning a living from laptop programming remotely aboard his boat applying a wifi link.

  2. Of of the kids I have watched here on youtube and that is about 30 of them and most can speak 2 languages, and most are so much more intelligent, thoughtfull, funny, experienced kids out there and I don't believe any of them would give up boat life for a sport or public schoo. Besides you give a kid a choice most will choose boat after living on one just like S.V. Swallow. : ) peace Nice video thanks

  8. What a great video, and thanks for sharing. Great information in here. Seriously, very useful information for me. That's an awesome cabin for a 26 footer. Composting head looks like the only way to go, for several reasons. Travel safe! Cheers!!

  15. There are many components to doing a pro job. One plan I found which succeeds in merging these is the Denelle Boat Builder (google it if you're interested) without a doubt the best info that I've seen. look at this incredible site.

  16. Just curious on what kind of jobs allow you to do this? I'm still in college, and after I graduate I would love to spend a couple years on the sea and drift away from the land.

  17. I really like seeing clips/images of people standing inside of these sailboats as it reveals just how large or small the interior really is. Which is really important when one considers buying a sailboat. Boat sellers need to take note of that.

  22. Just moved in my 34' hunter at 19 years old and could not be happier with life, I hope any of you who think they might just be interested in this kind of life give it a try, it's more than worth the leap you have to take to get there.

  23. if you sail from port to port, how much does it cost to dock per night or week ? How many spots let you pull in for free ? Or is mooring offshore the way to go and then dingy to shore? Who watches the boat when a person is ashore shopping etc? ( if travelling alone ?)

  24. This looks so much larger than a 26n.
