Liveaboard and Cruiser
You make a very good point about equipment being no good if it''s 3 years old. I think that is a pretty accurate timeframe. Those are nice boats, but I''m not sure if all 6''3 of me could deal living on that size of a boat for too long. To be honest I don''t care too much about how long a boat is, as long as the cabin has good headroom for me. Not to mention places to put....stuff.
