My husband and I moved aboard our 38' Choate, as full time liveaboards on July 1st of this year. Although we are still getting used to the limited space to some degree, and still customizing our boat for living not weekending, living the simple life can definately be done! We are working/living aboard for now, in efforts to fund a cruising kitty to travel with in the next few years.

The October issue of Cruising World is dedicated to Living Aboard and Cruising Full-Time. It is an excellent issue with great information on this topic.

Presently living aboard a Formosa 51 in Tacoma Wa. We purchased the boat aprox 6 months ago. So far we are doing very well. We will see what the winter here holds. Angelique is a 51' Formosa CT . She was built in 1978 and has undergone exstensive refit. Almost everything is new and many added toys. She is a center cockpit version and has a huge salon midships. Queen size aft cabin with seperate head/vanity/shower/tub. 4 bunks forward with private accomodations . Head to port and shower/Tub stbd. Galley is along the Port companion way . Walk in engine room. We are still learning her systems and how she handles. So far she has been great. Tacking is a bit rough and has to be done with determination and followthrough. We are having fun cleaning up the odd ends and finishing projects. Looking forward to next years cruising. If your in the area give us a shout we are at the Foss Waterway Marina.

I am living on my Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37, by myself, in a marina, in Auckland, New Zealand. The boat is pretty good for 1 person to live in, could be ok for two, but three is too many.

Cindy Jo and I presently have a part time live aboard arrangement as our schedules allow. We are typically living aboard 15-18 days a month while preparing our next "Home" for full time status. We still have lots of work to do to get our boat up to snuff for full time cruising. We endevour to be fully independent of shore on our extended cruise of the islands.

You can live on less boat than you think you can.

Have been living aboard with my wife and two cats since April. West Florida Gulf coast is pricey, around $12.50 to $14.00 a foot. We live on a 37ft Morgan and have more than enough space. Seems the boat gets bigger every day. She's beamy, about 12' and has great storage. We plan to go cruising in Feb or March and have a few things in long term storage for the kids and some stuff here in a small U /Haul. Plan to leave one car ashore as our plan is to return here durring hurricane season and work. There are few boats in our marina that are over 40 ft, most cruisers are on 32 to 37 ft vessels. One man has lived on his 32 ft Westsail for 18 years. Since marinas charge by the foot, the smaller the cheaper. Also remember that the price of maintenance goes up as the boat gets larger. Time commited to care of the boat goes up too.

I don't yet live aboard, but I intend to within the next three years. This thread has been an excellent resource and quite enjoyable. Thanks, all.
