CPA for Expat Cruisers

Hello,
I am in the 24 month countdown to moving aboard with my wife and two daughters. I was speaking with my broker about various means of tax reduction and he introduced me to a CPA who was very adept at understanding the tax laws, especially as they relate to US Citizen cruisers who are living abroad.

Sadly, he is retiring and did not feel comfortable naming a replacement in his business. Therefore, I am asking this community if they have had good experiences with a CPA who is familiar with the cruising lifestyle and the benefits/liabilities it entails from a tax perspective.

Being 2 years away from moving aboard, I feel that we can preposition ourselves intelligently to ensure any tax and/or earnings consequences are minimalized.

Thank you for any advice.

Your US federal income tax situation when cruising shouldn’t change one bit unless you decide to earn (wages, interest, investment )money from a non-US source. Am I missing something?
