Hello from Paris, France - looking to move to SoCal

Bonjour!

My husband and I currently live in Europe but are expected to repatriate soon to the Orange County CA area - we are American. We were avid boaters when we lived in the States, and would love to purchase a live-aboard size boat (approx 50-60 feet power boat) and live in the Newport Beach area. However, when making inquires at the local municipal marinas there is a 15 year wait list! Are there any good smaller private marinas that we can look at? We need to coordinate a purchase of a boat and then somewhere to actually store/live on it, but based on where we currently live (9 hour time difference to boot) logistically it is a bit difficult to manage. Any suggestions?
