I wouldn't worry about a "definition". Just do what you want/can do and enjoy it. It's more a state of mind, than anything exactly defined.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

I think its more a way of life or even a philosophy, rather than a certain amount of time aboard.

When you feel you are a cruiser, you are!!

Welcome mate.

If you're racing, you're racing. If you're not racing, you're cruising.

I like puddinlegs definition above. My thought is that if you leave the dock and end up some place else, you are cruising. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

You'll always run into people who feel that you haven't gone far enough, or lived aboard long enough to be a "croozer".

Don't worry about what others think.

Cruising is the practice of traveling about while perfecting the art of jury rigging repairs to one's yacht in exotic locales with materials and tools intended for other purposes, No?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Cruising is, to me, visiting places via water. Sort of like a road trip, but with a lot more water.

Cruising is "fixing your boat in exotic places".
