Eye opening thread. To be honest I would have guessed the average full time cruiser would spend half that.. goes in line with what most are saying is unrealistic expectations.
I know a couple who spend much, much less than $3K/month, but a small, simple boat, no refrigeration, mostly anchor off, rarely eating at restaurants, vegetarians shopping local produce, and mainly keep to more out of the way places avoiding higher prices in tourist traps. But they are clearly atypical.
