Re: Opposition to liveaboards

You guys say that the Europeans pay a lot of tax but I am starting to understand that the way government gets the money is just different. Here they probably will manage to have a way of keeping 60% of what I earn but I would pay as property tax for my 250/300m2 house about 360euros a year. In fact I pay a lot less. Those 360 euros would be what I would pay if the house was built now. As it was built 16 years ago I pay a lot less.

They tax the same way luxury cars, airplanes and boats? I don't think so. So why to buy a house and not a big boat to live on it?

I guess that I start to understand why so many live on boats and why here that is not so frequent

Regards

Paulo
