We're expecting our first child in June and planning on spending two months in my hometown before and after the birth, which means we're looking to sublet our boat during that two-month period (roughly May 4-July 4, though dates are somewhat flexible/negotiable). Ideally, we'd rent the boat to a person, couple or family that is already familiar with boats and will, therefore, take really great care of our beloved home while we're away.
For a sense of the boat and the surrounding area, check out our AirBnB listing. We're still considering what we'd charge for rent, but we want it to be comparable to monthly rent for homes in the area (not the significantly higher per night AirBnB fee listed here).
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
my wife and I are have been searching in the Bay Area for a liveaboard Trawler. We are both familiar with boats and I actually used be a boat machanic. As we are unsure if the lifestyle is right for us. We have been pursuing a temporary situation similar to what you have posted/offered.
We are very interested in discussing the opportunity with you to rent your trawler as a temporary live board. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. My email: Toddzien@gmail.com
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
