Sailing Yacht

Installing a WASHING MACHINE in our 40ft sailboat  #87

How many times did I not dream of not having to walk kilometer after kilometer, the 20kg IKEA bags sawing into my shoulders only to end paying a fortune and wait hours for clean laundry?

So when it became apparent that we were going to spend quite some time in Bonaire, where the laundry was both far and expensive, we decided to invest.

Washing machines our type are apparently available at supermarkets and chandleries in Martinique, but our friends at Catamaran Supply are working hard to be able to sell them.

This is also where you can find our eco-friendly laundry detergent, which works great for all types of washing machines! Supply: (affiliate link )
