washer/dryer/dishwasher combo - does it exist?

I was looking at things I probably can't afford and probably won't be able to find space for on my future boat and decided to look at washers, dryers, and dishwashers. To my surprise, dishwashers weren't actually that expensive... about $350. Maybe I'll be able to have one after I all. I also saw washer/dryer combos, which I didn't know existed and seem to save a lot of space. They're outrageously expensive though, about $1200 for the ones I saw... does anyone know of cheaper ones? And finally, my most important question: does anyone make a device that combines all three of these appliances? They seem to have enough in common that it wouldn't be too hard to do, and it would save a lot of space, and probably some cost...

Personally, I've never seen one. Nor have I seen a sailboat with a dishwasher, clothes washer, dryer, etc. I know they exist, but I think you are looking at a very large boat to support these appliances. A dryer would take a TON of electricity and could probably only be used in a marina. I do think clothes washers are more common on large powerboats with big generators.

Actually, I have seen a lot of cats with washer/dryer combos and some medium sized monos with them too. I haven't seen one with a dishwasher though.

I have no intention of using any of these appliances away from the dock. I'm going to be living aboard, and thus spending most of my time at the slip. Having a few conveniences of "home" would be very nice, but as you say are probably not possible. I can handle the dishes by hand, but I am loathe to do so... I tend to let them stack up at my current apartment, which doesn't have a dishwasher. The clothes washing can of course be done at the marina, but I'm disliking the mental image of hauling a basket of dirty laundry up the companionway, out the snow cover, down the dock, and back again in the winter...

Don't worry, no place to let them stack up on a boat.

Yeah, and you usually don't even have enough dishes to make a stack.

I think you underestimate my packrat tendencies (which is one of the things I'm hoping living on a boat will help me change). I can fit a truly impressive amount of dirty dishes in my sink... it's like playing a combination of jenga and tetris to get them out to wash them. Also, since the saloon on most boats I'm looking at seats 6 or 8, shouldn't there be storage in the galley for at least that many place settings?

We could squeeze six at our saloon table, and probably find room for enough dishes, but that would be at the expense of storing other items. Maybe just keep one or two dishes for you and use disposable for guests? We don't even keep regular dishware on the boat, all paper and foam, so no worries about clean up or breakage - you really will not want regular china type plates on the boat as they are too easy to break. Keep in mind that even at the dock the boat can really get tossed around during a storm or from boat wakes (and at 3 AM "no wake zone" seems to no longer apply to the big power boats).
