SV CATALPA & The Recyclaroos

The Crew

Lee, Sara, Taj and Bella (Australia) are a family of four that sailed away from land life in 2016 in search for uncrowded waves and epic adventures. Born and raised ocean side in Australia, they all have saltwater running through their veins, making a life on the sea the perfect choice for this family.

When a boat became their home, they realized that this was the best way to travel. Exploring remote places and meeting new poeple is what they love. They document their travels sharing their story to inspire other to live out their dreams.

They fill their days with surfing, fishing, yoga, scuba diving and showing their children that life can be both simple and beautiful.

Motivation to join the recycling fleet

“Living on a boat we have developed respect for our home, the ocean. We think, a beautiful way to contribute to the effort to keep our oceans clean is to join the IN MOCEAN¬†Fleet.

We are excited to learn more about recycling and using the rubbish we collect to upcycle.”
