artnautica 58

We have plans to cross oceans. In four years once time permits we're going to set off and head west towards the canal. We got also got a Nordhavn because we didn't want to wait for weather windows in our particular cruising area. And the Nordhavn community, they're the best. I've met some great people I otherwise wouldn't have if we didn't get a Nordhavn.

But what I was getting at is would you wrather give a little sea keeping abilities for a good amount of cottage or vice versa.

Nope, the wealthiest boat owners and their Captains don't even know or care about TF.

Found this interesting analysis on the usual too long / expensive moorage argument here: https://www.morganscloud.com/2013/10...sign-analysis/

Quote:
Now for the economic problem that plagues long boats: You have to pay to dock them.

Let’s keep our LRC58 in the relatively luxurious Confederation Basin, across the park from City Hall here in Kingston. This year’s seasonal slip rates are $216 a metre, so we’re paying $3850 a year to moor our motor yacht. If we chose, instead, to buy an 11 metre trawler with the same displacement and the same usable living volume, we’d be paying $2375 a year.

So the LRC58 costs an extra $1475 a year in dockage (luxury dockage, in the heart of downtown) compared to her short, fat counterpart. That’s a fair bit to me, but it’s peanuts in the context of half-million dollar boats.

More importantly, though, it’s only about 1000 nautical miles worth of the difference in fuel costs between the LRC58 and the 11 metre trawler with the same livable volume at the same cruise speed. (Our example trawler, which shall remain nameless, burns about 14 litres per hour at 7 knots.)

The extra docking costs of the LRC58 are nullified by the fuel savings if I were to do only four runs a year from Kingston to Toronto or Niagara, a leisurely passage of about 250 miles round trip. If I were to take her out the St. Lawrence to the Maritimes, paying for dockage by the foot along the way, the Artnautica would be financially ahead of the trawler before we reached John’s home base in Nova Scotia.
