I’m a wife and mother to seven kids
, and we’re looking to liveaboard
and travel w five of our kids
77 is definitely a dream boat
for us. I love how spacious it is, and I think the extra bonus room would be perfect for our kids. However, I know it’s on the bigger end. Is this sort of boat
suitable for passages/long distance/blue water
? We’re planning on starting out in the Med, but eventually we’ll want to circumnavigate. If you own a 77, or you’ve spent time on one, please reach out, I’d love to figure out if this boat is a good fit for us.
Is it possible for a family
to maneuver/care for a boat this size? Our oldest son who’d be on the boat (14) is interested in sailing, and I’m fairly certain all the kids would enjoy pitching in. But at the end of the day, they can’t care for a boat all day, and I don’t want to make an investment like this if we can’t properly care for it. If you would recommend hiring a skipper
, how did you select one who would work
with your family
Thanks for any advice! We’re not set on the 77, and other recommended boats would be great.
