NINA and Philip Bap­tiste bought their his­toric Leeds Liver­pool short boat four years ago.

They lived on it for two years and are now busy restor­ing it and set­ting up a small ma­rina in North York­shire.

“Liv­ing on the water is a won­der­ful way of life. If you get fed up with the scenery you can move on. It’s an out­doors life and it is also a much more chilled-out ex­is­tence,” says Nina.

“Moor­ings are hard to find though. It took us three years to get per­mis­sion to cre­ate some.”

The cou­ple both work in lo­cal gov­ern­ment and have a prop­erty they let out, but Nina says: “I can’t see my­self ever liv­ing in a house again.”
