Re: Review of 2 Years of Cruising Costs

Especially interest; all asset liabilities. 10% is ballpark. Maybe some would feel more comfortable with a range of saying 8-12%?

I don't consider depreciation as a maintenance cost of a pleasure item. An expensive boat takes significant maintenance cost for it to maintain its value, excluding depreciation. For many higher end boats there is little depreciation, as the cost of a new replacement has gone up faster than inflation.

Re: Review of 2 Years of Cruising Costs

Sailorboy1,

As another aspiring cruiser, just wanted to say thanks for the numbers!
Very helpful when trying to build hypothetical budgets based on a hypothetical boat in hypothetical condition leaving from a hypothetical port...

Thanks,
Mark

Re: Review of 2 Years of Cruising Costs

wish you people could drop this boat cost argument or start another new thread about it and allow this thread to go back to what it is really about
