Im going to weigh in on this subject. For the past few years I have been considering moving onto a boat as my full time residence. It has been a dream of mine.

My current boat, a 36, 44 OAL, and is comfortably fit. However, I would not be comfortable living full time on her, so I would look for a larger vessel.

When it came right down to it, I have looked at new boats and new homes. I have decided to keep Southerly and use her for continued jaunts to the Bahamas and up and down the coast.

I am in the process of selling my home, building a new one and using my boat as a weekend/vacation getaway. It was a really hard decision.
