Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

I'm seeking like minded boat lovers that have an interest in living aboard their yachts as well as investing in a private community. I've located a piece of property that is simply perfect. Includes boat dock, private beach, 360 degree views on bay, private drive, gated and electronic access, fully fenced with private beach. Location is about as good as it gets. And the fishing as well as off boat living environment just doesn't get any better then this. I'd like to form an investment group on equal terms, with like minded lovers of life and the aqua blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico located on a large bay, safe area, quite and only 1/4 mile from the jetties. Bike trails, shopping within blocks, with possible private marina for 30-60 slips. This is a great opportunity for like minded beach lovers to settle into a community of others that share the love of the sea! Please comment or message me if interested for more details. Thanks for stopping by.

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

Well, I did start a similar thread about 2 weeks ago under the Liveaboards Forum, so I would like to hear some of the ideas that you have.

You might want to check it out, where are lots of pro's and con's listed from a great bunch of cruisers on this forum.

Sailing Commune ?

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

Where? Costs? When? Is this a "everyone builds and develops" type of thing?

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

Interesting idea. I'd be interested in a seasonal place someplace warm (unlike Lk. Superior), like a Marina in that it had all marina amenities including AC clubhouse with kitchen, BR's, pumpout facilities, perhaps fuel dock. We'd "own" the moorings, I presume. it wouldn't take a large piece of property thus relatively low maintenace and taxes. How about just buying a marina?

Trouble with any type of community thing are egos, greed, dishonesty sooner or later destroy well laid intentions and plans.

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

i think i would prefer to do something like that in lousyana or an island somewhere really nice. fla is just fla. louseyanna has n'awleenz\

but one would have to catch me and threaten me with death or worse before i would consider JOINING a COMMUNITY of snotty yotties.. sorry. truth. one reason i didnt move into a regulated apartment complex. to much intrusion.

doing this to make sure i am away from community has to be homogenous regulations. not being a sheeple, i see no attraction in or for being herded.

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

Just like in the thread I started there are a lot of 'carts' being placed in front of the 'horse'.

Signature260, can you lay out your ideas for us? I would think that if you were truly looking for partnerships that you will consider 'level headed business ideas' from your partners...am I correct? I have found I have hundreds of ideas...but 'hundreds' are a little to much!

From my thread I have found that there are a lot of people that like the idea...but just haven't given it to much thought.

I look forward to your ideas!

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

The organization can be structured a number of different ways.

Corporation? Coop? Condo? HOA? Limited partnership? etc. etc.

First thing to do is define what your objectives are. From there, a business plan needs to evolve. From that one can determine how to best go about to achieve the objectives. But those objectives need to be in writing, not just ideas floating around.

Re: Live Aboard Group Investment Opportunity

After spending many years on a home owner's association board. You really need get some clear definitions going in. With a new board that we took over from the developer, we took the stance of placing a life span on all community structures that would need maintenance/replacement. Did some basic division and added 20% to come up with the plan for what the dues should be. 16 years in and we did a good job. Things are wearing out, but the money is there to pay for them. We called this pay as you go methodology. We got lots of pushback from people who wanted more of an assessment methodology. You'll have lots to think about. Managing the personalities is a bitch. When I retire, I want no part of being in an HOA. People complain about every little thing, but few will do anything to make it better.
