What boat do you live on?

I am a yacht design student (who has lived aboard for 4 years before coming to uni) and am doing research for a final year dissertation. My aim is to design a yacht that is targeted specifically at livaboard cruisers, as most of the yachts on today's market are designed for coastal cruising and not optimized for livability in remote areas and offshore. If you'd like to be part of the study, please leave the following information:

> What boat you live on (specific model please!)

> How many crew on board

> Preferred cruising grounds

> Ages of the crew


The data will be used anonymously for the purpose of developing a design concept based on the livaboard demographic.

The picture is of the boat I have lived aboard, she is a Hallberg Rassy 53.

Oyster 53

People onboard: 1 or 2 (one 50% and two 50% of the time)

Mediterranean: nearly 100% of time spent in anchorages

The South Pacific is wonderful. I'm fond of the Galapagos and New Caledonia.
