I am in need of some assistance in deciding if the idea in my head
is eight good or bad. I live in San Jose, Ca and living anywhere around here is expensive. Therefore, the idea is get a boat
that is comfortable enough to stay on for 2 to 3 days a week and go home for the rest of the week. The boat
could be docked somewhere in the Rio Del Mar, Ca area an hour or so away. This is a change of scene (Ocean) and life (different vibe). Since working at home is now a thing it kind of made sense to me.
Looking at boats, I was thinking in the range of 40 to 46. I really like Carverís and Silverton they both seem to use the space on the boats very efficiently and are over all designed well.
The question is a difficult one to answer.
I Love just sitting on the water
if the boat does not ever move of the dock
I am in heaven Ė From my readings, a Diesel Engine
would not be the best choice, since they like to be run to stay healthier. Gas on the other hand has its issues but are quite a bit cheaper to get into. In short, the boat is not going to move much.
The AFT cabin
is nice since you do not need to crawl into bed
and 3 side can be reach. Just a preference
A nice size galley
. Again the Carver 404 / 444 and the Silverton 392 has nice size galleys
And the hardest thing I am having to find and I know the question has been asked a million time. How much can I expect it to cost. Everything I find on living on a boat and how much it coast is because people are on them 365 days a year and use the boats. I want to use it as a temporary condominium on the water
Last but not least Good Idea / Bad Idea
