Interested in living on a Cat out west.

How ironic,

After living in MD and POWER- (argh.. there I said it) boating on the Chesapeake for almost 8 years my wife and I find ourselves in Phoenix, boat-less, and looking for a sailboat to live on.

After reading the exciting and sexy reviews on a few websites, I have to say that the idea of some kind of multi-hull appears to be a great option for both living and sailing.

Does anyone have any experience living on a smaller cat or trimaran, (Telstar 28 looks very cool) or a Corsair. Are they too spartan to seriously consider as full-time living boats?

Our budget is around a $100,000 (that's half the price of a beater condo in Scottsdale). I can probably talk the wife into $150,000 if necesary..heh..heh.heh.

No kids, the house is sold and we're heading to San Diego tomorrow to start the process.

Thanks in advance for any comments, concerns, snide remarks etc.

Tim
