Because so many liveaboard boats never leave the marina, you are likely to find that many have deferred maintenance. Some you can tell as you walk down the dock, others are less obvious. No need to worry about sails, running or standing rigging, winch cleaning or how fresh the oil is in the diesel, if you never leave the slip. That is not an absolute, just something to think about as you shop. Good luck and enjoy.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
