Assuming you stay in the US, once housing costs are discounted, the cost to cruise
are the same as living in land.
I say once housing costs are discounted assuming you will live at anchor
, but itís very easy to spend a house payment staying in Marinas
The wild card in my opinion is debt, going to be real tough to cruise with a pre existing debt that you have to service
But cruising as far as I can see really is no different expense wise than Retirement
, if you can retire and have a boat
, you can cruise, canít afford to retire? Cruising is going to be tough, in my opinion.
This is not to say anything for those that intend to take time off of work
or save up to go with the intent to coming back to work
, this is for those that leave with no intention of returning to work.
