Hi, my partner and I are live-aboards and intend to travel, starting within a month or two. Although you may think the expenses are nominal, you should be aware that there is upkeep costs, registration, insurance, fuel, passport, visas, permits and food. The larger the vessel the more costs involved. To set up a vessel that will give us fresh water and power to operate navigation equipment and household things like lights and 12v fridge, was very expensive to start with. We have spent most of the money we had saved from selling our house, this means we will still need to work while travelling.
Happy sailing to all.
