Re: Looking for my first liveaboard

Anyone by chance know the headroom of those boats. I'm right at 6' tall so that's also a factor

I'm 6ft exactly and bought the Alberg30 partly because I can stand in the saloon.

Cadence, lots of folks nowadays have jobs that make good money and are easily exportable. Your question about money is rather condescending. He's looking at realisticly sized boats for a beginner, likely has plans to ease himself into learning the basics, and rather reasonable plans. Why the negative vibes?

Sorry if it seemed condescending. It was not intended to be. It was meant to bring up the point that the upkeep costs need to be considered about as much as initial boat purchase cost especially if someone intends to do extensive cruising. It is hard to cruise and have an income at his age.

Check out Atom Voyages website, There is a lot of good information on it. They restore old classic boats for cruising.
