Was it ruinously expensive? I'm hoping to do my day skipper/ competent crew at some point in any case.

You can get them a lot cheaper and also a lot dearer depending on size, age, condition and specs.

They are like mini floating apartments nowadays. It has everything you need and more. We love the fresh air, it gets the kids to put their ipads down, we cruise locally for weekends and further afield in the summer months depending on work etc.

This would be about £150k to build new today, I paid £80 odd and its probably worth 90 in todays hyper market of not being able to leave the UK. Ongoing costs are licence, mooring fees and upkeep.

License is about 1k a year, mooring fees around 3k a year and upkeep probably averages £1500 - 2k a year. You need to use it to make it worth having

There is nothing better than mooring up in middle of nowhere, wondering to the local pub / eatery grabing a beer and some food and wondering back, playing board games etc into the evening watching nature such as bats etc fly about.

2 toilets
full size shower
central heating
240v power throughout
washer dryer
2 single beds
king size bed
2 make up double beds
solid fuel stove
fridge and a seperate freezer
wine cooling in the keel of the boat
tv in 2 bedrooms and in the lounge
led lighting
etc etc

sort of fit out you get

That narrowboat is gorgeous. To answer someone’s question above, it wasn’t ruinously expensive as it was only an 8m sports boat but you have berthing (8m too long to tow in uk) annual service plus any unplanned maintenance, insurance, fuel etc and it all adds up. Boats don’t appreciate (unless maybe something like a Riva) so you have depreciation. Just like cars, depends how much you use it.

It’s weird as I think about this sometimes. I have a boat so the fks part seems to sort itself, I have friends who are pilots who don’t have any issues too. I also know some completely ‘easy’ girls (they’d totally admit that) and they don’t have any issues getting onto planes or boats. So now I think you need to invest in one to get all 3 laugh

Re the car, it’s your and only your choice. Personally I think McLarens are a bit more mid life crisis spaceship cars, where as Ferraris are pure art. Only my utterly worthless opinion of course smile Go with your heart.
Yeah I am ready for a midlife crisis , hell in fact I am knee deep in it lol. BUt I must admit do like the look of the Mclarens but you are right the 458 is way better looking,
Might seriously look into servicing costs etc as both Mclaren and Ferrai dealers are bout a 5 hour / 350-400 mile round trip. So that is something I need to factor in

I have no doubt they will but at what cost
Which brings me onto my next point
What does it cost to service a 458? Is it an annual service and if so how mcuh roughly
How long do Brake pads and tyres last roughly and do tyres have a max shelf life like Porsche insist (6 years max)
