Silly question but where does one moor/berth/anchor large yachts.
I am thinking along the lines of a
100 foot Schooner
particularly for Australia but am curious how people do it elsewhere.
Marinas are obviously out - any marina big enough for a 100 footer comes with billionaire prices and probably a heliport....
Wharves seem to be commercial - big ships pay by the hour, come in unload-reload and move on.
I just can't get my mind around what people do with boats that are too big to be really called yachts - but too small and **cough** cheap **cough** to be classed as ships.
There seem to be a few of them around - often used for corporate cruises - dive trips - whale watching. None of which are really the sort of business that is regular or reliable enough to pay regular expensive mooring fees.
Fishing fleets as well - they certainly don't pay marina fees, costs of fuel and licenses are high enough as it is - they would certainly want to keep mooring fees down.
I am stumped.
And yes I admit I am doing the "throw it all in and live on a yacht dream" thing but found even a 50 foot yacht too claustrophobic to realistically live and work from.
