Financial Planning for Cruisers

Dreaming of casting off the lines and cruising full time? Do you have a million questions like…

“How much does it cost to cruise full time?”, or

“How much money do I need to cruise full-time?”, or

“How should I invest my savings to go cruising?”, or

“How do I get healthcare when I am cruising?”, or

“How do I find a Financial Advisor who understands cruising and sailors?”

Then you have come to the right place! You can at least check the last one off your list.

Sailing is my passion and I once dreamed of doing the same. I even got so far as to sell my home in Wisconsin and move my family to South Florida before deciding to put the dream on hold. During the time it took to sell our house, it became apparent that the rest of my family didn’t share the dream to the same extent I did. So to appease the rest of the family, the dream would have to wait.
