Home afloat: Baltimore residents enjoy living aboard

These full-time boat residents are called liveaboards, and they reside on all manner of vessels, such as sailboats or houseboats (the latter fully functional boats with a houselike appearance). They love life at sea, but the transition from terra firma

Life afloat

Life aboard suits them, said Isselhardt, who rents his boat slip for $7,500 a year, plus a $1,400 liveaboard fee. Neither he nor Maddie sees the 285-square-foot cabin as the whole of their living space. There's 60 square feet in the cockpit and another

Dream Boats: Trawlers you can buy for $1 million

These efficient cruising yachts sounded the call of the sea to a whole new class of non-sailing boaters and launched a new type of vessel, the live-aboard motor yacht, now known universally as a trawler. Today's trawlers are a wonderfully civilized way

Home afloat: Baltimore residents enjoy living aboard - Baltimore Sun


On a hot summer day at Baltimore Marine Centers' Harborview marina, boats gently bob up and down in their slips, the lines clanking dully against tall-masted sailboats like Eric Isselhardt's 43-foot Beneteau. For Isselhardt, 55, the sailboat is his home, the marina his neighborhood. Since 2010, he has lived onboard with his 10-year-old daughter, Maddie, and their German shepherd, Zeno, in a 60-foot slip with spectacular views of the Inner Harbor. And he's not the only one literally living on the water. Across the harbor at Lighthouse Point marina in Canton, Bob Flynn, 54, lives aboard a 57-foot motor yacht. He's among a community of 28 boaters at the marina who call their vessels home year-round. These full-time boat residents are called liveaboards, and they reside on all manner of vessels, such as sailboats or houseboats (the latter fully functional boats with a houselike appearance). "Five years ago, I never had any experience sailing a large boat," said Isselhardt, who grew up sailing much smaller craft in Montauk, on New York's Long Island. But in 2010, the Calvert Education executive decided he wanted his daughter to grow up with an understanding of what is important in life and what it means to leave a carbon footprint. Isselhardt, who is divorced, thought he could teach her those lessons in a nontraditional home. "Living aboard is a very deliberate choice," said Isselhardt, who bought his sailboat for $230,000. "You have to be aware of your available resources [such as] water usage, electrical consumption and waste elimination. Before they traded their backyard for a boat slip, he and Maddie, who lives with her father during summers, weekends and holidays, spent two months making note of everything they touched in their house each day. Life aboard suits them, said Isselhardt, who rents his boat slip for $7,500 a year, plus a $1,400 liveaboard fee. Neither he nor Maddie sees the 285-square-foot cabin as the whole of their living space. They spend time and dine frequently in the cockpit, on the foredeck and on the dock. The two often head to a nearby parking lot to leave for shopping trips and spend time at the pool operated by the marina. Maddie has her own little sailboat for short trips around the piers. Below deck, their living space is like "a little modern apartment," Isselhardt said. Every bit of space has a use. There are two heads — in layman's terms, bathrooms — and two staterooms separated by a living area with a table and a small galley, or kitchen. Outdoors, the marina has a tropical feel, and a soft breeze always seems to be blowing. At night, city lights twinkle, and the glow of the Domino Sugars sign is an ever-present and assuring night light. The marina is a close-knit community, where everyone knows and looks out for one another, Isselhardt said. It feels like a neighborhood, especially in the summer, when more people are out and about and the living is cheaper. In winter, it takes three electric heaters to keep warm, the cost of which can go from $40 per month to more than $500 in February and March for electricity. "This past winter, we shrink-wrapped the boat from stem to stern," Isselhardt said. "That enabled us to use the cockpit for most of the winter. In five years, Isselhardt has never regretted his choice to live aboard. "Think about how you value your possessions and what is important to you," he said. "Living on a sailboat is a wonderfully adventurous life, but it does require decisions every day that affect [its] quality. Flynn, an attorney and general counsel for Signature Title, knows all too well the decisions facing the liveaboard. In 2008, he and his now-ex-wife, together with another couple, purchased a used Symbol 557 motor yacht from a friend for $200,000. The original owner wanted to sell it because of an exhaust leak that damaged the engine room, and it was unclear how... His friends asked out of the deal and Flynn agreed. Though the yacht was appraised for $650,000, he said, it would end up costing Flynn slightly more than $50,000 to make it seaworthy. "The exhaust leaks ultimately caused one engine to wear prematurely, and I have to have it rebuilt now at a.

Very Good 7 1/2" X 9" 271 Pages Indexed. A used book in Very Good condition. No marks or stamps and the interior text and illustration pages are flawless. The author draws his inspiration from centuries of workboat construction, where semiskilled fishermen built rugged, economical boats from everyday materials in their own backyards, and went to sea in them in all kinds of weather, not just when it was pleasant. Buehler's boats sail on every ocean and perform every task, from long-term liveaboards in Norwegian fjords to a traveling doctor's office in Alaska. This book contains complete plans for seven cruising boats-from a 28-foot sailboat to a 55-foot power cruiser. All the information you need is here, including step-by-step instructions honed by nearly 20 years of supplying boat plans to backyard builders-and helping them out when they get into trouble. If you want to build a simple, rugged, economical, good-looking cruising boat-power or sail-using everyday lumberyard materials and few skills other than perseverance, this is the book for you. Buehler's book tells you how to build extraordinary boats using the most ordinary skills and materials, with complete plans, instructions, and specifications for seven real cruising boats ranging from a 28-foot sailboat to a 55-foot power cruiser. Richly flavored with personal advice and anecdotes as well as a wealth of valuable information.
