PMY Takeover: In our March family-themed issue we covered various families who made the decision to cruise with kids aboard full time. On the cover of that issue was a salty young soul named Penn. Clad in navigationally appropriate red and green sneakers, he was the first kid to hold the honor of Power & Motoryacht cover star. Since then we’ve heard from readers who were interested in learning more about the intrepid Palmer family and their long-range exploits.

With that, below are some videos from the Palmer family so they can give us a closer look into what living on the water is really like.


Hey Power & Motoryacht,
Welcome aboard our Nordhavn 55 and into our unique slice of life. Let’s get underway!

When it comes to living aboard we’ve learned that it’s best to expect the unexpected. And that dead fish are tough to clean off the deck.

We often get asked, what’s the best part of living aboard? That answer is simple: making new friends everywhere we go.

We try to incorporate educational adventures every chance we get and today that means a visit to the New Bedford Whaling Museum. We never expected to have the place to ourselves.

Thanks for following us today. We hope to stop in here again soon and look forward to meeting Power & Motoryacht readers on the water.
