This really depends on a lot of factors... like the type and size of boat... how many people you're talking about, what part of the world you're cruising in, whether you like to stay on the hook or in marinas, whether you need to run a diesel genset to produce electricity or have wind/solar, etc.
Some have done it for as little as $500 a month....others spend $3,000 a month... A bigger boat will have some costs that are higher and some that are lower. Maintenance, dock, mooring and haulout fees will be higher, but often, the larger boats can be a bit more self-sufficient, having water makers, solar and wind electrical generation capability.

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.
