    Very nice though rather large.
    Most every big expense on a boat is charged by length and you want a boat you own, not that owns you.
    So only have as big a boat as you need. For those needing a cool, low cost home and some building skills or willing to learn, google shanty boats and DIY houseboats, many that can be used on land too as a trailer.
    A major mistake though is not enough buoyancy in the hulls which should be .5 meter higher above water and have watertight compartments in case of a leak, the whole boat doesn’t sink or in this case as a cat, roll over.
    Each hull should have 2.5-3x the buoyancy of the whole boat in the case of a cat, pontoon. And don’t have round pontoons as after 50% deep, lose buoyancy fast. Many have dumped their passengers when everyone went to 1 side overloading a round hull to see something.
    Anchored out or free land to tie too can be a great way to survive an economic downturn as almost no costs, even fish for food, money makes a recession from a worry to fun.
