I spoke to crew of a 160 foot ketch getting a refit in Auckland that was scheduled to take 5 months. The owner bought a furnished three bedroomed apartment in the city to house the crew and two Jeep Cherokees for then to get around. then they built an airconditioned office block out of containers on the wharf to project manage the refit from

All was sold when they left.

I don't believe anybody even thought to ask what the hardstand under cover was costing.

The Viaduct marina in Auckland can normally house probably up to 20 over-100ft yachts at one time, during the Americas Cup in 2003 there were more than that.

Whenever someone mentions Arizona to me, I think "desert". Shows how much I know about the US..

Still, there is plenty of megayacht parking in the Middle East and lots of sand there too!

Personally, there are a lot of 50'ish foot boats I would have no issues living on, at what, 1/10 the total cost to maintain, buy etc!
