Re: Has anybody gone the sub £5k route for a liveaboard?
Soverel 28 is what i spent my first years sailing on (ages 8-12!) and I now have a Westerly 28 which is my first boat that I've owned/captained/taken care of. It's worth the compromises to have a smaller boat, I think, since it's cheaper, easier to handle, etc. I know several people who are doing liveaboard at that size, and you make do by keeping your needs simple, as Capt aaron says. although i am interested to know if he had a multitude of live-in girlfriends on his 28 footer- all at once?!
