Well, after 25 years of sailing and 8 years of chartering my 39' Beneteau
sailboat in the BVI's, I am ready, I think, to consider living aboard
for 3-6 months at a time in both the BVI's and Virgin Islands
. I am in the info gathering stage starting with expected costs. Please let me know if I am missing any costs and if my budgeting is correct. Also, which is better for liveaboard
, BVI's or USVI's?
Hard dockage (Hurricane Season): $600 per month
Regular dockage: $350/month
BVI Parks and Cruising fee: $400
Costs: Budgeting $500/month
stuffs: $100/week (Not including dining out/alcohol)
Miscellaneous Mooring Fees
: Estimating 5x a month $150/Month (I like to anchor)
: $200 a quarter or $800 annual
: $500 annual
Trips back to US: 4x @ $1000 per roundtrip.
Anything else? If anyone is currently living aboard
right now in the Virgins, feel free to provide me any other advice or tips.
