The dream of downsizing, giving up the rat-race and living life on board a boat is proving more and more attractive everyday for many people. For many, this is not just a dream but an actual way of life. There are so many different types of boats suitable for living afloat on; if it floats and has the space & creature comforts you are looking for, then you may have found your perfect houseboat! Many motorboats & yachts are already equipped with bedrooms, toilet & shower facilities, cooking & lounging areas which make them the ideal choice for many looking for this new lifestyle, plus, what could be better than the option to ‘Go-Boating’ as well. There are many positives to living afloat; most people just love being close to the water & nature; waking each morning with the gentle lapping of water along the boats hull, the cry of the seagull, or stepping into your boats cockpit & looking out onto a completely different view than usual will change for many the way they currently live. If you like the picture that has been bought to mind by these moments then this lifestyle is definitely one you should consider.
