Live Aboards, Veronica & Roy, Seabrook Marina

Living life on a boat.

In 2013, Roy and Veronica Jeans decided to sell all their things, and put the rest in storage. Their move was not a typical one. No one had a job reassignment or some sort of life changing opportunity. In fact, they continued to live their daily lives...from their boat. A 1976 46ft Hatteras to be exact.

In the onshore world the living space equates to about the size of a typical living room/dining room combo. Around 400sqft. It was dream onced dream and became their reality.

When asked what Veronica does for a living, she usually prefaces it by saying, “well, I work from my amazing boat with an amazing view right inside Seabrook Marina”.  Roy Jeans generally alludes to the fact that after a long day at work in the office he gets to come home to “paradise”. Doesn’t that sound delightful?

While it isn’t always sailing the open seas and cocktails on the back deck, being liveaborads has provided them the freedom from being tethered to concrete and walls and allows them to dream even bigger for retirement in a few years. What’s next for these two? Living their best life bewteen Florida and Texas.

Here’s a look at what it’s like to be a liveaboard in Seabrook, Texas at Seabrook Marina:

View of the boat and her name: Etosha.


A remodeled bathroom.

Work must be done while you're living on your floating home.

Little helpers always come to visit.

What a view!

Amazing to call this place home.
