Meet Varuna, a 1968 Allied Luders 33 sailboat that was miraculously brought back to life just two short years ago.
Once a derelict and unwanted little mess of a boat, the unthinkable happened on July 5, 2013. Matt and Hillary Wilson bought her with a bright and cheery vision, and a little determination. Piece by piece they turned Varuna into a tiny floating dream home!
There, you’ll find posts they wrote about everything from installing a flexible water tank, adding insulation for the fridge, cutting a custom-shaped foam mattress, repairing the sink, exterior painting, interior painting, replacing light fixtures, storage solutions, and much more!
In order to fully appreciate the amount of work that went into this makeover, just take a quick look at these amazing before-and-after photos:
Over the same past two years, I’ve poured a good amount of blood, sweat and tears into my own tiny floating home, though my efforts cannot even compare to the work that was done on Varuna. This little boat is nothing short of inspirational to me, and I hope to everyone else that has ever thought about making their dreams come true!
