Re: Financing a Family Circumnavigation

Every one's circumstances are different. Have repetitively done spread sheets with financial advisor and to do it again in a week as we finally are getting close to spitting up the anchor. After researching this don't expect to do the clock but rather N.Atlantic then canal to S. Pacific.
Multiple unexpected variables:
flights home
medical care
professional services at home to keep land side concerns/family stable, safe and happy.
Land side costs while cruising- purposeless to go to all these lovely places and not be able to enjoy the cultures/sights/cuisines.
Big issue is what in my profession is called QOL ( quality of life). It's this that will determine what boat you get, what you put in it, and what you will spend travelling.
If contemplating this sure read the books and blogs but talk with your S.O. and professional advisors so you can truly be realistic as it concerns your life.
