Live Aboard Recomended Boat List

I noticed on the live aboard sub forum that we didn't have a list of boats for people wondering what might suite their criteria. I think by having this (hopefully) thread, it will help guide people towards certain boats from which they can narrow it down from there.

Please feel free to comment to add boats to this list.I'll update it ASAP. Thanks.
Could we please make this a sticky.

We are power boaters for now. But I have to say that just about any boat could be lived on to some extent. It depends on what each person wants.

This is a very open and subjective question.

I agree with you completely as each person is different. But all i was hoping by doing was compile a list for those looking for a place to start, and then they can narrow it down themselves.

For a 33' boat, a Morgan OI 33 has lots of space...any OI for that matter. wing&wing has a very cool boat, forgetting what size, but I think its a CSY 35?



As mentioned, a question not easily answered without more direction? And everyone would have a different set of guidelines.

Maybe if you composed your question like below? (see my Yacht Builders list and perhaps you set it up similar?)

Monohulls:
25'-30' Range:

30'-35' Range:
- Morgan OI 33


35'-40' Range:

40'-50' Range:

50'+ Range:

While a neat idea, I'm afraid it is really like asking folks for an anchor recommendation. You might as well list every one ever made. Most anything will get one vote.

btw, I see you edited the OP. Having the same 10k price brackets at each boat length isn't quite right and maxing a 50+ footer, let alone 40 to 45 (you skipped 45 to 50?) at 70k is rather limiting. For that matter, spending 70k on a 25 footer would be astonishing.

The parameters give a false expectation that a specific length and model of a vessel has a specific range of value. Year, condition, equipment, location and more have a huge effect on value as well as the motivation of the seller. There is also a great variety in the space that is functional for different crews and crew numbers within similar vessels and varieties of interior layouts for the same model years. Then add the differences in intended cruising areas that affect choices of draft, rig, performance, and vertical clearance. Any attempt to lay out the recommended vessels by length, price and and a couple of other criteria will be a disadvantage to anyone shopping for what might be best for them. I like a vessel that has a shoal draft and presents a gentile profile to what I might encounter under water and will not snag pot lines with a skeg or prop. I needed to buy a vessel that could clear 55' fixed bridges and provide separate cabins for my son and daughter. I want easy engine access and DIY possibilities. Where would I or anybody else find what they need on such a chart? I like your eager hope to have such a list, but I can't imagine one that functions. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

It is a work in progress. No, spending 70k+ for a 25' boat isn't unreasonable since it could be a new build.

I just made it yesterday and in order for it to become full of boats it requires the community input.

Consider this; the list in the future encompasses over 250,000 boats. It would n't be worth going into any detail of the boats since it is just a general list, not like yachtworld. Also some of the boats listed can come in multiple configurations (like the Cat 30; tall rig, standard rig; fin keel, wing keel), so to put all that info in seems redundant because a link can be added to the association attributed to that boat.
It is suppose be a RECOMMENDED list aka simple. It is for everyone's judgement to narrow it down them-self from which models they find that fit their own specific criteria. IF this would be a SPECIFIC list, then it would be a different story and be my guest if you want to create one of those.
