Re: Interested in liveaboard vessels. Advice?
Having just purchased a "liveaboard" (for my lites!) I can offer this opinion....
For the 50K budget...look into the 20K range for purchase, allow half the remaining $$ (15K) for re-fitting and set up; then you have the balance to *really* get ready and have $$ to live on for a year, pay slip/dock fees for a year and provide over-wintering pull-out/slip in and storage if required.
There's lotsa great boats with yer desires in mind available at that price point. Figure your minimum comfort level, luxury-wise and calculate other appointments from there.
