We looked at one of these boats recently - a Tayana 55. The owners said they take it out for a two week cruise each year, but it's been 4 years since they last did that. They Winter on the boat in the Northeast too. The decks were in tough shape. The sails hadn't been unfurled or raised in 4 years "so they are in great condition!" There was no footpump for the galley sink - "It wasn't very useful so we got rid of it"... and lots of other liveaboard adjustments. I found the whole thing kind of strange. On the other hand, I'd prefer to live on the water - period - even if I couldn't move what I was living in.
