The folks at Kadey-Krogen recently told us that that it takes most people who buy their boats from two to three years to make the decision. In the boat-buying world that is considered a long time, and we suspect that the reason it takes so long is because it is also a life-style decision. In the Kadey-Krogen 44 we have a boat designed specifically for a couple to go long distance, or even world cruising, and most owners spend 5 months or more on their boat each year, we’re told. Some even live aboard year around. Buying a boat for live-aboard is a big decision and obviously it’s a two-person decision.
