After a lot a great input from members that this may not be an ideal time to buy a cruising catamaran
, especially since we won't be able to use it until around March of 2022 (retirement date). we are rethinking our plans. We are thinking about keeping our current
powerboat, getting it from WI to Green Turtle Bay in KY later this summer and make long weekend trips thru the fall and winter to KY. Then start the Great Loop after we retire. After hurricane
season next year we would start our catamaran
Our goal is still to buy a cruising catamaran and become more proficient at sailing, then sail full time. My question to the group is this: has anyone had experience financing
after you are no longer bringing in a paycheck? What was the process and did you have any ah ha moments that you would have changed? Our financial advisor assures us that we can make it work
, but she is not a boater and has never dealt with this situation. I'd like to get some opinions from the experts.
