I've been sailing couple of times in my life, small boats in Finland
and once a 75' race
boat in the east coast
I've always had the interest to stop living "normal" and start living the dream.
Seeing the world has always been the dream and with Cat, that would be possible without spending thousands and thousands on gasoline and upkeep.
I'm sure I would have found answers to all these questions somewhere on this forum but since this is active place with lot of experienced users, tough that this would be the easiest way.
- how big is the fuel consumption
with 40'-45' category boats? (I know the are variables but if someone could give rough average)
- how big savings people are having when going for a trip that lasts 1 year, 2 years, 3 years etc?
- what kind of maintenance
costs are to be expected with the 40'-45' size cat's in a year?
So what I've been looking is a boat with max size of 45'. And it's not going to happen next year, not in the next five years but maybe in next 10 years.
It all depends how my businesses goes because funding
is everything when going for this dream.
And if this dream ever comes to reality, I will of course go to sailing courses before trying to do something that I'm not capable to do.
And one more question, how are this size cats handling sailing in lakes, there are lot of them in Finland
and if this ever comes to reality, I would definitely start sailing in the lakes before heading in to seas.
Thanks in advance for all your answers.
