I have not seen a thread where you can share your boat and talk about boats here.
So here is one.

 

My or you could say my dads boat is a 46ft Power Cat. Malcolm Tennant design.
Used for game fishing and adventures. Can sleep 8-10 people easily.

Could do with a repaint but gets the job done well.
We run 9 Rods out the back when trawling for Marlin and Tuna.
He does charters sometimes too.


First person to post their Salthouse Corsair wins :)

Oh nice, Beccara she's a beauty! My husband would absolutely *love* to live on a boat. I'm kinda keen too... but the logistics seems so impossible to me. >.>

Demeter: Oh nice, Beccara she's a beauty! My husband would absolutely *love* to live on a boat. I'm kinda keen too... but the logistics seems so impossible to me. >.>


The key to any live aboard is how much stuff you like/have to have, Even on a Lagoon 620 you'd be hard pressed to fit a normal house worth of stuff on there, Even more so on a Wharram. The thing i love about the Wharram designs is everything in on show, You can see damage or stress before it becomes a major and as such maintenance is alot cheaper which in turn makes it overall cheaper.

We're looking at savings over $26k a year living on the boat and thats with a increase in dining out, It'll be a challenge but from a financial and lifestyle perspective there's alot to gain

Buccanner 635 Excess with 225HP Honda.  Had to sell it about four years ago after I broke my back in fall.  The short choppy waves in the Sounds made using it too painful. :-(  It was a great time while we had it.

This is somewhat affordable, although a surprisingly expensive hobby really.
