Is the marina aware of your plans? What marina is it, I am looking for a bigger boat to live on starting this spring. I would say to PM me, but you won't be able to but you can email me at my username at gmail.

By the way, the original poster started this a long time ago, so likely figured it out one way or the other.

Re: Liveaboard Rentals

Finding a marina and getting a slip that will allow live aboard is going to be the elephant in the room. In Coastal California there is an artificial limit on live aboard slips. In the SF Bay Area, live aboards are limited to 10% of the slips in a Marina. In the AlaWai in Honolulu, live aboard slips are limited and subject to some pretty steep increase in rates. In Oceanside, live aboard slips are limited, have a surcharge, and live aboard permission not transferable with sail of the boat and slip. Just a sample of how requirements differ.

Best to do your homework to find out the costs and limitations of a live aboard slip. In many cases will require buying a boat you may not be in love with to acquire the live aboard rights. Lastly, get it all in writing and don't make any assumptions, require proof you can do what you want.

Re: Liveaboard Rentals

At my Marina, we have a whole dock of live aboards and I'm going to be renting my 40' out as a live aboard with as long term as you want.

Re: Liveaboard Rentals

We are pretty much in the same "boat". We live in a coastal community and commute to the city for work. We are currently leasing but looking to purchase our own cat or larger monohull to live aboard and begin our transition to a sailing/scuba charter business. We want to put our monthly $$$ into something that could be ours like a rent to as we are not quite in a position to purchase outright at this time. I see so many neglected boats sitting in marinas and/or anchored sail boat that could use a little love. We are always looking and hoping that perfect boat shows up at the right moment. Many are overpriced needing so much work and others are in mint condition and you would be embarrassed to offer less than asking and that is where the banks tend to deny any financing due to the boats actual monetary worth.

winterbuoy This is my first post and I agree with you about this site, it is great and full of useful info. I am a liveaboard living in Toronto with my wife Vicky on a Roberts 44 offshore. I traded up to this boat from a Ranger 33 that I bought as my first boat. I also lived on the Ranger all year but when I got married she was to small for us. Anyway, DO IT. Buy a boat and do it. My wife is from the US who was living in TN working in a church when I met her and she just loves it on board, even in winter. $3500 US a month is a lot of money just going down the drain, We spend about a grand Canadian a month to live almost downtown at a club with everthing you need. Just do it, you can't beat the lifestyle and all the people you meet makes it just that much better. We are going to take the boat south this year with other boats and I just can't wait for that. DO IT, buy a boat and move on board, thats all I can say.
