VIDEO The 12-meter self-built backyard boat with only $30,000

DIY boatA young Russian couple who like to “get their hands dirty.” The dream of having a boat. Five years of nonstop work. They are Gena and Vita, and the wooden cruising boat they built themselves in their backyard (after designing it) is called Galaxy and is 38 feet (almost 12 meters) long.

In a time-lapse video uploaded to Youtube (with immense success) they show the entire creative process of the self-built boat, from making frames to sailing sea trials.

Vita writes, “This is the story of the self-made boat in the backyard. We made the yacht mainly with my wife, but relatives and friends also helped in the construction. It took 5 years and we spent $30,000 for all the materials. We feel as independent as possible if we realize the things we dream of ourselves creatively.

In 2017 we were forced to sell the self-built boat because we wanted to quickly finish the construction of our house (also built with their own hands, ed.), but we are already drawing up a plan to build a new aluminum boat to travel the world.”
