I understand you, and I am also 42 and also feel like retiring and ask myself why cant I just brake the ties and go out and circumnavigate. But then I realized something, you and I, are bored with what we do. My advise to you would be the following: 1st) can you relocate your business? 2) Do you have someone you can trust to run your business while your are gone? 3) Buy the boat
you want and do a nice long trip, circumnavigate the globe, if its what you like you will keep doing it, if its not you will quit in one year or less but you will have fulfilled your needs.
Do not rush to buy a house somewhere else, take your kids
for one year , (they will learn far more underway anyway). When you are done, you can settle wherever you want.
BTW I also seek help but only in the right Catamaran
department, I am already selling my house to go for a long trip and then decide where to settle again.
If you have any comments on a good used Cat under 48 feet and under USD 400k let me know.
Best of luck on you decision.
