Our Voyage

In March 2023 we embarked on our biggest adventure so far! After 1.5 years of searching for our floating home, we bought a sailboat in Sweden with a dream to sail the world. 

Our boat

“Tranquility” is our floating home. It is Malö 39, bluewater cruiser ideal for long-distance sailing and full-time living aboard. Get to know the upgrades and boatwork we regularly do!

Meet us

We are Tom & Alex, full-time cruisers, divers and airline pilots if time allows 🙂 We’ve decided to create this blog, to share with you our voyage but also to give a helping hand to those who follow a similar path.
