Re: Real Cost
There are people getting by on $5k a year on the hook, scraping their bottom themselves and eating simply.
Low end is usually about $20k a year.
But buy a 50ft cat and plan to stay in marinas then $20k won't cover your marina bill and it will be WAAAAY more than that in parts of the Med.
BTW keep the ride. Life is to short to drive something boring. Mine was a Ducati and I spent to much but boy when those Termagonis were wailing it was all worth while.
