I spend about $1000 a month in the Med, , first the boat is new so I have not had to pay any repair bills yet.
is the biggest thing so far, we eat on board most of the time, eating out only a few times a week -you can find a good meal out for $12usd if you look around and ask people where a good and cheap
place to eat is.
We spend about $ 20 a day on food for 2 of us on board . We do grow sprouts ,and that is very healthy and cheap and we shope at the local food markets and eat whats in season
For fun We ride our bikes somtimes in the countryside and load up on figs, grapes peachs, pairs and lots of other things, My Girl friend is French and and not shy, many times she has seen someone that was growing things and has asked for a taste, and before you know it there giving us all we can carry away,We catch a few fish
and Octopuss we are careful on how much we spend, IF we want fish , we buy it right off the fishing
Many of the Marinas
are Free, I think about half of them and on the other hand only 25% bother to come and charge you , most places you can stay a few days before you are charged. The charge for a 12 meter cat in Greece
is about 10 euros when you are charged.
You know when you find a great place you dont want to tell to many people , because your afraid too many people will come and mess it up for you , well thats how many places in Greece are, Cheaper than Turkey
, I think much nicer and the people are great. My boat is staying in a marina free all winter, I found many places like this, I am paying a guy 300 euros to watch it a month .
Quite a few months we spent less than $1000, somtimes a little more
with the devauleing of the $ I suppose its gonna cost a few hundred a month more this year.
Fuel costs are about $150-200 a month if we need to get somewhere (pick up a charter)
Is also very cheap in some places, other places not so cheap, Great master wood workers will work for you for about $20usd and some skilled labor for $7usd a day ,and im going to have a lot of nice custom things done next winter there.
I kept the boat there last winter and it cost about $100 a month , food is even cheaper there, but on a whole not as good. in the winter there only about 3-4 veggies you can get for months.
