Unfortunately, this will cost more than a charter would. No one in his/her right mind would accept such terms. Good luck!

Am I to understand that it costs more to maintain and upkeep than the cost of the boat?

How about monthly and annually?
45' Boat payments (80% value) vs. monthly costs?

Depends on the boat, but for older boats, this is often the case.

Re: Liveaboard Couple Wanted in Key West

Your really,vague in your expectations. So you're. pretty much going to get vague or sarcastic, comments. If someone were just doing this for a couple of months is something major happens with your vessel such as it needs an engine or transmission rebuild is your expectation that the person living aboard to pay for that? For what it cost of maintaining a large boat somebody could easily buy a cheap little bit and let it rot and fall apart but enjoying the keys while living aboard drifting from spot to spot. How about when you ac stops working and its a hundred degrees inside, this is your asset you should bear the cost of replacement parts and the liveaboard bare their labor. This treatment would be no different than if you had a professional captain living aboard

but I think you want somebody to pay for everything and take you wherever you want to go,
Pretty unrealistic. But hey more power to you id love to find someone to pay for a new generator and rigging and ill give yah room and board for a while. Oh yeah dont worry our insurance and dockrent and power is only about 1k a month b

Re: Liveaboard Couple Wanted in Key West

So I'm guessing everything works great now, but the minute I move on the chafed halyard is my problem ? This is really funny stuff. Sounds like your itching to take advantage of some unsuspecting soul, then turn it around and claim that some terrible crew broke your stuff and ripped you off. This will happen whether or not you see it.

Re: Liveaboard Couple Wanted in Key West

Bruce and Randy are more than willing to lend a hand, but they don't like getting dirty. They're very good with a sewing machine and needle and thread. If it's new interior decorating you're after, then look no further.
You just have to coax them out of their cottage on Key West.

Look at all the preceding posts... You will not get any answer
Not even on the present state of the boat
He wants somebody to take care of the boat and maintain and repair her without knowing anything about the boat and he can get her back whenever he pleased
Not bad!!

I am not looking at a couple months, more like couple years or more.
If a tenant/skipper breaks it he can fix it or replace it.
If a tenant/skipper wants new A/C, he can provide it.
If a tenant/skipper wants new electronics, he can provide it.
If a tenant/skipper transits the canal, he pays the fees.
If a tenant/skipper wants to drink Tawny Port, he buys his own booze.
If a tenant/skipper docks the boat in Key West, he will pay about $1,000/month dock fees.
If a tenant/skipper comes back into the country, he pays for the $50 customs sticker.
I donít want anyone to take me anywhere, I have already been there.

TENANTS/SKIPPERS-IN- COMMON DEED (% OWNERSHIP)

So you're looking for an equal share partner in the boat? Or someone just to operate your boat and maintain or not maintain as they see fit? Even with the ability to sail it to panama and say screw it the engine is **** and walk away?!?!?! That's stinks like a bilge full of mullet!!!!!!

I'm fine, but your plan is suspect.

Re: Liveaboard Couple Wanted in Key West

I have read from post #1. Why does this sound like my Kenyan uncle wants to make me a millionaire? There is nothing here but red flags. "warning Will Robinson, warning".

I must say your definition certainly describes the offer.
