I've been living aboard nearly four years. At the risk of a "me too" post I think nailbunny has it spot on.

From my perspective you live how you live regardless of whether you are on shore or afloat, so priorities are quite personal.

I'm a foodie, so cooking (refrigerator and cooker) are important to me. If you eat out or do take-away it will be less important to you. Interestingly, I find a freezer more important than a refrigerator offshore, but for day-to-day living a refrigerator is very important. I put on a microwave three years ago and took it off last year, but that reflects my cooking.

I agree that Internet and (for me) to a lesser extent TV is important.

Decent sleeping arrangements are critical.

I don't have leaks, but if I did I think they would be at the absolute top of my list.

Unless you have a very short walk from car to boat you'll want some kind of cart to move things back and forth.
sail fast and eat well, dave
