Re: 10 years of cost of cruising data

Thanks for the info. Little depressing. I'm trying to do this on a 2008 or so Lagoon 421/400/440 catamaran in about 2 years. Less the boat payment and insurance (different budget), I was hopping to do everything, live, fix, repair, eat, entertain, etc. on $3000 a month. I'd hope I don't drink as much, 8 beers a year, minimal dockage, own repairs when required. I don't see much for hotel and eating out. I might make it for 3,000.

Check out Colombia for possibilities when you feel you must move ashore. My wife is from there and Colombia will likely become my shore based home.

Re: 10 years of cost of cruising data

I would love to know what great service you received in the 4 years you decided to tip someone.

(And thanks for posting.)

$3k is fine as long as you dont go into marinas. And that's quite easy once outside the USA and Europe.

In the pacific and Caribbean there is no need for a marina EVER.

Marinas are not only expensive but the lead to a totally different lifestyle: marina mates go to restaurants, anchorage mates visit each other's boats for sundowners, and Pot Lucks or beers on the beach.

In all these costings you see the first thing you look at is marinas... If there is more than $100 per month just disregard the whole budget and go find someone else's.
Other clues are flights.

Stay on the boat at anchorage and be a tourist, don't fly home every second weekend.

You can do it easily on #k -- that is our normal in most years. We just had a bad year last year - so don't get depressed. SoulMates is 15 years old, has over 40k miles, is used really hard, even through we take good care of her stuff does wear out and has to be replaced. Our costs includes insurance so if you remove that you can do it.
Oh and it depends on where you sail. Come to the Med and you have to winter someplace and that is a marina. Getting parts here are a bit more expensive and limited.
We do eat out and we do live hotels when we travel inland at times. A lot of time our trips are day trips. Right now in Israel we have yet to see a hotel as almost everything is a day trip. Yesterday did the Dead Sea and Masada - 12 hour day.
good luck and come on out

We have talked a lot about where we will live when we stop cruising. We have sailed to Colombia and loved it. It is very very high on the list.
