MEET OUR BOAT, MV PIVOT

She’s our home and transportation around America’s Great Loop!

The name Pivot came to be after we had some fairly large pivots to our travel plans. Due to the global pandemic, we knew we wanted to keep traveling,

piv·ot | \ ˈpi-vət

to turn on or as if on a pivot

 

ABOUT OUT BOAT

We are cruising on a 1990 34 Marine Trader, Double Cabin. We bought our boat in January of 2021 after pivoting our plans to internationally travel full-time. We’ve spent several hours giving her a spruce up with new bottom paint and accent colors, installing a cell phone extender, solar panels, and giving her a good clean.
