Years ago, it may have been unheard of to up sticks and opt for a simple life without the shackles of a house mortgage. That’s right, we’re talking about choosing to live on a boat, and trade grass and flower beds to having the sea as your back garden. Nowadays, people are becoming more open-minded and are opting for a simple life on a boat, and there are a fair few reasons as to why.

Health Benefits

We all know fresh air is great for our health, and admittedly, we probably don’t get enough of it. Living on a boat is a sure-fire way to get more fresh air, and enjoy both physical and health benefits. Clean air, a fresh perspective on life and plenty of exercise will do wonders for both your physical and mental health, not to mention help you relax, too.

Cost of Living

Living on a boat is a simple life and with it comes a reduced cost of living. All you really need to do is invest in high-quality marine safety products. These will keep costs down and provide pretty much all you need to start a new, safe life on a boat. Explore our range of boat chandlers and a ship chandler, too.

Less Materialistic Outlook

Sure, you’ll need your usual bits and bobs to keep any home in shape, but life on the sea can result in a much more simple lifestyle. When it comes to keeping your boat in tip-top shape, investing in marine supplies, and marine cleaning materials means you’ll be ready in no time, and don’t need half the items you need in a house.

Travel

When it comes to life on a boat, the world is quite literally your oyster. Being able to go wherever you please is not only great for your health but means you get to holiday a lot more than many others! If you have children, there’s no greater gift than to travel, and being able to show them the world is an unforgettable experience.
