Sailing Melody is the official YouTube channel for the Bennington Family and our sailing adventures.
We are now well on our way to becoming a full time live-aboard family.
We started with a little 24ft Snapdragon bilge keel, and then moved up to a 28ft Great Dane long keel yacht.
Now though we're working on MELODY, our 38ft Steel Pilothouse Cutter.
We're working hard to get her ready to go back in the water but as you'll see there's a lot of work to do.
Join us on our epic journey restoring this beautiful boat to her former glory and then come with us as we set off around the world. Read More Read Less
Andy, Melissa, and Jack are doing a fantastic job. They are taking an old derelict steel sailing boat, and turning into a family home to sail the world and experience life. Great family with heart and determination.
There are a many chequebook sailing channels out there - this isn't one of them! Starting out with a dream and a proper doer-upper boat, watch out for these guys in the future when all that hard work turns into living the dream - they will have earned every moment
Good to see progress and how jobs are being tackled. Educational and interesting to share information. A mammoth task from abandoned boat to back on the sea, a long journey ahead for the family! Can't wait to see it relaunched and meet again in the sunny Med climes.... Keep up the good work and steady progress!
