Looking for a liveaboard in SF Bay Area

Hi out there!
I'm looking for a liveaboard in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm a Bay Area native, I learned to sail in Sausalito. Now I'm looking to liveaboard, probably semi-temporary, but I'll see what I can get. Ideally I'd like to do it in San Francisco, but I'm also open to East Bay or North Bay. I have experience doing bright work. Is there any way I can get connected with boat owners offering liveaboard situations?

Good luck with that. Happens only very rarely if ever.

The craigslist Marine Services section is probably your best bet but honestly- I think you will have a real tough time finding anybody willing to let you live on their boat in exchange for work.

Re: Looking for a liveaboard in SF Bay Area

There's a guy who buys old boats, fixes them up, and rents them out. Think slum lord but on the water. I think most of his boats are set on the hook but I could be wrong. If you're still interested, let me know and I'll pm his info.

Eta ~ he's def not "cheap" though. That I recall it runs around $1K+/monthly. And that does not include maintenance, etc.

Go to Nelson Yachts in Alameda, he has a lot of boats that can be bought cheap and probably be made liveable for not too much money.

In the Bay area ... there are deals to be had ... sure you are not going to get a perfect boat WITH running inboard ... in fact most of those available ARE available because the inboard has given up the ghost ... and the cost to repair/replace that inboard is more than the boat is worth ... and yes that means alot of work to make it sailable and safe ... simply a matter of priorities ... and cashflow ...

and I know well ... I picked up a good sailing Ranger 23 (dead 6 HP outboard) ... with more than 4 good sails ... yes she needed alot of TLC and cleaning inside ... but still a very decent boat ... for $1

yes ... right place at the right time ... but still hard to beat ...
