Product Description

The Essentials of Living Aboard a Boat educates both dreamers and explorers with information about this wonderful and rewarding lifestyle. Mark Nicholas has combined his experience of life aboard with the advice of other liveaboards, marina owners, technicians, boat manufacturers and advocates in order to detail the challenges and offer real advice for success.

This lifestyle, typically thought to be out of reach or "for other people," is now available to all who dream. Essentials explains, among other things how to:

  • Figure out your needs
  • Choose the right boat
  • Buy your boat
  • Choose the right marina
  • Prepare for the lifestyle
  • Outfit your boat
  • Plan for all climates
  • Forecast your costs
  • and more!

'One way folks plan to get cruising sooner is to cut costs by moving on board their boat early. Before you do, read this well balanced look at the subject. You'll encounter fewer surprises.'
- Lin Pardey, Author, Educator and World Cruiser

'If you have been thinking about living aboard, there is help! Here is a book that will give you a lot of little insights into what you will be gaining, and what you will be losing. The book is intended as a resource to help you learn about the liveaboard lifestyle. It tells you about costs and options and attempts to provide an honest and realistic picture of what it's like to live aboard. '
- Bob Bitchin, Editor, Latitudes and Attitudes
