Imagining the Dream
We returned from our trip abroad at the end of October, 2019, so you can imagine we're starting from square one in terms of finances. In the time it takes for us to save up a down payment and secure a loan, not to mention move up the wait list for liveaboard slips at our hometown marina, we're figuring out just what kind of boat will suit our needs.
At this time, we're searching for something between 36 and 40 feet, with 42 LOA being our absolute max. Livability is the biggest priority! Our desires include some kind of dodger, a standing shower (or somewhere to put one in), a spacious "master bedroom" (with both a v-berth and aft cabin being the dream), the ability to sleep at least 4, a usable kitchen, and a healthy engine. Functionality is at the top of the list, and we'll eventually tackle the aesthetics part ourselves. Our budget is about $40,000.
Know of a boat that fits this description, or have one yourself? Please get in touch!
