A residence at sea, but on a larger
ship than we were on. Although the cabin accommodations were delightful on
this small ship, they were not like a home. The accommodations should be much larger, with
rooms that are very comfortable. Instead of having everything in one room,
there should be more rooms, a separate bedroom, a separate bathroom, and a
comfortable living room area.
As the business we currently operated, dealt
extensively with these issues, I began to make a few drawings.
I quickly found that if I took the drawings, and lay them out, end to end, they
were three to four times longer than the boat we were aboard, and over four
times as wide. The length didn't bother us, but the width was an issue.
The next day we
had chartered a boat to go scuba diving and snorkeling for the day. Upon arrival
at the dock we discovered this charter was a catamaran. We had a wonderful
time that day exploring the wonders of the seas, and couldn't help but notice
how smooth the voyage was aboard this catamaran. Width is no longer an
issue. Building a twin hull ocean liner would be much better.
Throughout this cruise we were on, my wife and I were asking all kinds of
questions about the islands we visited, focusing on real estate, various
business and family lifestyle aspects. We looked at all of the resort
conveniences each island did and didn't have, and also looked at the amenities
onboard the cruise ship we were on, as well as everything the luxury yacht being
built by our acquaintance would have.
We decided that in order for us to be living on board fulltime, we must combine all of the
best features we found while on our trip, and add all of the amenities we have at home to create the
ultimate place to live. This would make an ideal place for us, our family,
and others to live. Luxury residences on the ocean with great services to
provide a quality lifestyle while traveling the world on an endless voyage.
We could retire here and experience the best retirement life possible.
