Full time living aboard


My wife and I, our 3 yo son and a small dog named bones have decided to purchase and live aboard a yacht in Sydney Australia.

We wish to purchase a suitable yacht to live onboard (whilst attending a normal day to day job and school for my son) as well as sail around australia and possibly to us and europe (in a couple of years or so).

We have a small 24'' which we sail quite regurarly (limited offshore also), however have no idea about the size of yacht we will need or the type.

Could anyone advise of the kind of yachts that we would be looking at and the kind of things to watch out for when purchasing from dealers etc. Our top end of the budget is about the US$ 70, this realistic?

Living onboard we''ll have no issues with (both wife and I are ex navy)...

Any advice is much appreciated...
