Welcome aboard our dearest home under sail “POLY”. It is a 50 feet NEEL trimaran, the very first ever made (the prototype). We made almost everything on our own, from scratch….and now absolutely love that sailboat! It is fast, comfortable … our best home we could have ever imagined. Happy to welcome you here! Join our sailing family life and subscribe to our channel!
Adventures of Ania and Bartek with two little kids sailing across oceans on a 15 meter trimaran as a way of promoting alternative way of life off the grid. In 2014 we managed to materialize our dreams and traded a land based home in Poland for a permanent life on the ocean aboard our dearest new home – sailboat “Poly”.
For us sailing is a way of free life in sync and harmony with nature and each other. It’s a way of experiencing life, people, and places, entirely on our own terms. For many years it was just a dream, but we followed it and it came true. We are here and now, no longer chasing the dream.
We’d like to share it with you so that you can follow your dreams, too. Follow us to see all the amazing, interesting, crazy, scary, and funny people, places and situations that we experience and learn from.
Welcome to our family life unplugged.

huyaaa i follow you channel, greetings from indonesia
Very nice boat… the engine room is very messy! Did you think about fire prevention? Please be careful because a lot of electrical devices there which theoretically can catch or start fire! Wish you safety all time!
Yes, thank you. You did not really see the engine room. It’s my workshop that is adjacent to the engine room. And yes you are absolutely correct. It’s a mess. There are always few project at the same time on the way. Everything that is under power is secured though. Living on stable multihull does look different. You don’t have to worry about things flying unless you go into bad weather or into waves. We also have automatic fire system in worst case scenario. Cheers.
Where are you guys now. Stay safe
Hey Richard, sorry for late reply we are in Saint Lucia waiting for things to reopen. All good. Thanks.
We are in Satin Lucia until everything reopens :). Cheers Richard!
Would you mind if I asked how much your boat cost? My husband and I are seriously thinking of doing what you’re doing. We’re retired and have already traveled most of the world giving benefit concerts throughout our lives, but we’d like to slow down a little now and make friends with some sand and sea.
Thank you in advance!
Love and All Good Things,
Hi Jesse! Congratulations on a great decision. Now the execution, right? We do consult people on the land-sea transition and I don’t use our boat numbers as examples in preliminary finance discussions. Our boat is a high performance one-off effectively. We heavily modified it and rebulit it. I don’t recommend such road for anyone with less than a lot of sailing and technical experience at the same time. The focus of early consulting is to establish your expectations and formulate needs based on area and period of navigation, characteristics of the permanent crew to live aboard, finances, etc. Only then can we make a conscious decision as to what type of boat to recommend for your dream to come true and not become a disappointment down the road. If you are still interested in our numbers, there’s a reply just below to Andy’s similar question not too long ago. Let me know if we can be of more help. Cheers.
Congratulation to your new home! It’s a dream came true. I would like to know more about your design and the production process. Can you share the knowledge? How much did it cost in total for building the boat and what is the estimate monthly cost for running it?
Greeting from the Philippines
Hi Andy! Thank you for watching and for the question. To some extent this question has been answered in few of our videos, but to give you a quick idea it was 300k to buy, and another 300k to rebulid in Poland. Running costs are extremely hard to pin. On average I’d say about a $1000 a month, but that includes nearly all the work being done by me and staying on anchor and not paying for the marinas. If you don’t do all the work and stay in the marinas the cost may easily rise tenfold or more. Cheers mate.
