    Wooooo thats some bright shiny woodwork, but I love it! That blends really nice with the blues. Id feel really comfortable in this boat. As comfortable as I could feel off land lol

    Very nice indeed. And a sailboat that long is huge, so if you rent it, and plan on taking it for a sail, you’d better have a ‘lot’ of experience sailing something that large, have a experienced crew, and the owner’s OK first. Plus a huge insurance policy, that boat would probably cost well over $1,000,000 USD to replace. My income is more in the area of a Johnboat, a small outboard, a sleeping bag, and a tarp.

      This sure is a very nice sailboat, but you can rent it through Airbnb only at it’s mooring, you can’t take her out for some sailing.

      It’s just a very beautiful place tied up in a historical part of Copenhagen, where you can enjoy the comfort of this boat for as long as you like, without leaving the mooring.

    I like the stove top oven combo that is commonly used on larger boats. they seem useful for tiny house and small house kitchens.

    Get real! While I love sailboats and have lived on them and sailed the South Pacific, they are not tiny homes by any stretch of the concept or imagination. First, cost. A boat like that is probably unreachable for most people. Just berthing (parking) the boat somewhere will cost $8 per foot per month + elect $350 to $400. Then there is the purchase cost, a 42 will be in the hundreds of thousands, even an old beater will cost a lot. Then there is insurance and taxes. As far as simplicity, a sail boat is not a simple maintenance free investment. In many ways much more complicated and costly to keep up than a normal, not tiny house. When we lived aboard a 29 foot sail boat (small, not tiny in the boat world) we did all our own maintenance and repairs (most people do not have the ability to do all that) and our costs were $10,000 per year not counting any payments against a loan, and that was 30 years ago! I recommend that you restrict yourself to the tiny house concept of going inexpensive, small and simple, not big and complicated.
    All that said, living on a boat is a wonderful life style and the 42 pictured is a nice looking boat, well maintained and beautiful. It can be less expensive than buying a house in city of San Francisco and still live in San Francisco, if you can find a berth for it.

      Our costs for a 26′ sailboat were much less. Of course we are in a public city harbor not a private marina, but our berth is 1500.00 a year fresh water included, and our electric is about 35.00 a month for the heater we use dockside (at anchor we use a small catalytic heater plumed to an above deck propane bottle). We do have a small solar panel and have switched out to all LED lighting. If we had a refrigerator out electric would be much higher, but we have figured out that our one at home holds mostly condiments. Our icebox, used for packages of raw meat, lasts a week on one block (4.00)

        Costs to keep a sailboat vary a lot. If you are anchored off the beach in Bora Bora, in a 26 foot boat that is bare bones (we saw that) and catching rain water with a solar panel or two, you have no costs. Been there done that. But if you have a location like LA, Sanfrancisco, or Anapolis, basically a city, your costs are much higher. We almost purchased an 8 year old Catallina 350 (36′) for $108,000. The insurance came in at $1000/ year, the berthing was $9/ foot because there are a lot of under 30′ berths and few 36′ berths, property insurance was going to be $1200 per year and a haul out to paint the bottom would be $2,000 every few years if there are no issues and you do your own work. Just to purchase the boat the cost beyond actual price would be $3,000 to 5,000 for marine survey haul out etc etc. if you need to make payments that’s on top of it, any repairs along the way are more$. The difference between the costs of an old 26 foot boat that you scam living on and just let go versus a boat that is capable of actually sailing someplace with gear that needs tending repair etc are enormous. Basically the cost of a boat goes up by the cube of the length. I do not fault those who are willing to sacrifice to live on a 26 footer, I did for 3 years. A 26 footer is more like a tiny house. But please do not lead the unaware that living on the water is cheap, it’s not. Now on a 42 footer, the costs are much greater. That’s why they have it for ent on airb&b, to pay for it!

          I would hardly consider a Beneteau dressed with North Sails cloth, who receives fresh bottom paint and bright work varnish bi annually an old scam, but I understand you are not specifically referencing my situation. We have an aft cabin, a v berth, a galley and salon (dinette) for four, an enclosed head and holding tank that we pump out at the facilities provided by our annual moorage fees. We sail out of harbor almost every weekend and anchor out in beautiful nearby coves. Like all tiny living it can be done elegantly on shoestring, or you can scab together a cardboard and blue tarp option. I do agree noobs should be made aware that boat length is exponentially expensive, and perhaps that also applies to other cubic canny dwellings like tiny homes on wheels, who are so much more than Square feet.

      Touché
      Can’t see what or why even a 42ft boat is being mentioned in a small house community in the first place, haven’t we got boat communities for that sort of thing? Just wondering !!! Maybe keep to what your best at and not worry about others interests whether sent in or one of your own it’s got absolutely no relevance in this site (just my view)

  • Comet August 2, 2015, 10:23 pm

    I suspect that as an AirBnB this is rented docked; and that the actual owners would keep it in repair. and yes–a 42′ sailboat is a LOT of work and not for the faint of heart or shallow pocketed!

    I would def question an elec bill of between $300-400 a MONTH; we live where elec is very expensive and in a house with 7 people and with an electric hot water heater for those people and we don’t spend more than maybe $200; more in summer as we have room AC’s (several asthmatics here) I know when we had a large boat the elec bill was not outrageous; what are you running to generate a bill like that?

    To the person commenting on all that shiny wood–I believe that would be a high-gloss Marine Varnish you see there; protects esp against salt water and if I remember right you can touch it up easier than paint. Salt water has a nasty habit of corroding anything it is near or touches; this includes your walls (probably marine plywood) your carpeting; your hardware–there is a reason that stuff is SO expensive!

Electric is not all that higher for a boat but combining it with berthing it’s like renting an apartment, $350 to $400 per month for berthing and elect.
