Liveaboard: Benefits of living on a boat


Have you ever considered purchasing a boat instead of a house? Why confine yourself to one place when you can explore endless destinations, all while enjoying the comforts of home? If you’re on the fence, here are just a few of the many benefits of living on a boat:

1. Less Distractions, More Quality Time

Life on a boat means fewer everyday interruptions. It’s a chance to focus on simple pleasures like reading, cooking, swimming or just enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

2. Closer to Nature

Enjoy more time in nature, with the fresh air and stunning views of the sea. Research suggests that living by the coast contributes to better mental health, known as the “blue space effect”.

3. Enjoying the Journey

You get to enjoy the journey just as much as the destination. Take the scenic route and discover gems along the way —it’s all part of the adventure.

4. Cost-Effective Living

Boats can be more affordable to buy than traditional homes. Once you’ve made the initial purchase, ongoing liveaboard costs like maintenance and mooring fees are often lower than monthly rental bills.

4. Home on the go

No matter where your travels take you, whether you’re cruising along the coast or anchoring near a remote island, you’ll always have your home comforts and feel at home.

5. Peaceful Surroundings

Say goodbye to traffic sounds and noisy neighbours, and instead, listen to the sounds of birds, whales, and gentle waves lapping against the hull.

6. Chase the Sun

Change your scenery with the weather. With a boat, you can follow the sun and good weather. If rainy season approaches, simply pre-plan your journey to calmer waters.

Living on a boat requires self-sufficiency, resourcefulness, and a willingness to handle emergencies. It’s not for everyone, but for those who embrace a compact lifestyle and enjoy the simplicity of life on the water, it can be very rewarding.
