Many marinas have set minimum sizes for liveaboard boats to keep people from using really small boats that are unsuited for reasonable accommodations aboard. Really small boats have often been used as liveaboards by people who are doing so not because they want to live on a boat, but because they want to live very cheaply, and the boats are often dilapidated and eyesores. They often have crowded decks with a lot stowed on the cabintop and are not seaworthy or sailable.
Some marinas are willing to bend the rules if you've got a boat that is close in size and keep it in bristol condition.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
