First of all thank you for taking time to read my post of help
I am Andrew, a 25 years old who had the idea of living onboard a boat
when i was young, and that idea never left me years later. Now that i am working full time and receiving a stable income
, i plan to set this dream of mine into play.
I have been searching for used Monohull
Sail yachts online, starting off from sites in Singapore
and came to an easy and quick conclusion that yachts are much more affordable overseas, especially in countries like Australia
where they have a wide selection available and even Malaysia
With that, i encountered my first road block. How do you actually ship or sail a foreign vessel over to Singapore's waters if you have little to no sailing experience? I have read of people spending $25K USD ( exclusive of tax, registration
etc ) to have it shipped by yacht shipping
companies, and also those who rented container space on ships and shipping
I will probably take another 4 - 5 years of saving, and would like to calculate the expenses from rental of docks, to maintenance
of vessel cost very carefully to the cents.
The staying aboard boats community is really small in Singapore
and is rather challenging to contact someone for advice.
Would really appreciate it if any of you could kindly advise me on this.
