There are people who liveaboard
in the Haifa Marina, but sadly it is very polluted. The city has worked towards cleaning
up Haifa harbor these last years and its somewhat better, but the air quality is still terrible. And there aren't any real alternative options close by.
The biggest problem for sailors wishing to liveaboard
in Israel is marina space. Haifa, Herzilya, Tel Aviv and Jaffa marinas
all have long waiting lists. The other remaining marinas
in the country are filling up quickly too. Don't really know why the government
doesn't get a hussle on and build some new marinas. There is talk... but nothing is happening as of yet.
Having said that there are quite a few liveaboards living in marinas around the country. Some have managed to buy boats and keep their moorings.
Good luck with your thoughts on Aliyah. Livingaboard would be a great way to chill out after a shift at the hospital
