WANTING TO LIVEABOARD IN SAN DIEGO SOON

Hello all, I have scoured a bunch of forums and this seems to be the most active. I live in Carlsbad, California. North San Diego and I am a Navy Corpsman. Me and my girlfriend have the itch to give up our apartment and liveaboard in the next year. We love to travel and love the outdoors and want the experience of living aboard.

Hoping to find a great deal around 30-80 grand on a nice trawler. We are open to living in oceanside harbor or even down in main San Diego.

We are avid believers in living life to the fullest and connecting with the outdoors. Complete newbies to the liveaboard lifestyle, but have done tons of research and feel it is an experience that will fits us well and want to at least try. Please let me know if you see any good deals or know of any good opportunities to learn or rent a liveaboard for a while.

Glad to join this forum and look forward to making new connections. thank you!

Hello r3markabl3, welcome aboard CF.

Not to rain on your parade, but what you want to do may be difficult. There are few places in SD that allow liveaboards, and they have long waiting lists. You might have to join a yacht club. Maybe something at Shelter Is. Good luck with it.

Thank you Ann! I know it can be as everyone would love to live in San Diego, but if you put it out in the universe, maybe the universe will provide

Australia would be great too! I love Sydney!

Re: WANTING TO LIVEABOARD IN SAN DIEGO SOON

How is your search going?
I am moving to San Diego and while I don't have any immediate plans for trying live-aboard I have been dreaming of boats my whole life. I am hoping to learn to sail at the very least.
If you get serious about San Diego your thread here may be a good place to consolidate all the data a newcomer would need to start thier dreams.
Looking forward to reading more here later!

Re: WANTING TO LIVEABOARD IN SAN DIEGO SOON

I liveaboard in SD. The marina I am in "turns their head" when it comes to living aboard. I won't publicly share which marina it is for that reason. Send me a PM if you are looking for a slip and I'll point you in the right direction.

Re: WANTING TO LIVEABOARD IN SAN DIEGO SOON

Walk the dock in Oceanside. It's been a while since I've been in the area but you used to be able to buy a boat and transfer the slip. I even knew a few that bought a boat to get the slip for their main boat, and then resell the other boat.



Not sure about liveaboard status though as its been awhile since I was there (grew up inland)

Re: WANTING TO LIVEABOARD IN SAN DIEGO SOON

We lived aboard for over 10 years in a marina in San Diego while running a delivery business from our DeFever 54. It was very successful and we enjoyed the comeraderie of other live aboards.
Don’t let a number of naysayers deter you from following your dream! The Chula Vista marina at the bottom of SD Bay could have some liveaboard slips available because it is a long run out to the other end of the harbor.
Good luck in your search!
Phil
