Living Aboard in Vancouver

My family and I want to move to Vancouver and live on our boat. Any help with what marina's allow this, and how we go about this whole new idea would be amazing.

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver

Hi, we too are moving down to Vancouver and will be looking for a boat to live aboard until we are ready to set sail south. There are quite a few marinas on Vancouver Island that allow liveaboards, and also I've been in contact with shelter island in Richmond who allow live aboard, they are very reasonable to. I can't offer much information as we don't leave until the beginning of August but I will keep you informed once we are down there. Good luck

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver

Can't speak for Vancouver except real estate is through the roof there right now with almost zero vacancy rate for rentals and a teardown house on a tiny city lot starts in 7 figures. I would expect liveaboard marinas to be in very high demand.
Here on Vancouver Island things are a little more civilized and unless you absolutely need to be in Vancouver, may I suggest Victoria has a lot to offer. James Bay is a lovely community where I live and Fisherman's Wharf is a couple minutes walk from downtown and reasonable liveaboard moorage. Not sure how big the waiting list is. Cowichan Bay about 45min north of Victoria is where my boat lives and has reasonable moorage.
