Only $1000 From Van Life to Sailboat Living

Ethan talks to Dylan Magaster a 21-year-old who started a YouTube channel with only $1000.

He lived by backpacking for 6 months and then transitioned to van life where he lived for over 2 years.

Dylan then decided to move to the Mediterranean and purchase a sailboat, having only 7 days of sailing experience.

Dylan has now sailed over 6,000 nautical miles and visited over 27 countries.

In this interview, Ethan and Dylan talk about van life vs. boat life, and how to do it on the cheap.
