Please note: Is your question about becoming a liveaboard?

The liveaboard wait list is over 5 years long.
We do not forsee reopening the list for several years to come; no one is giving up their permit with the ongoing housing crisis in San Francisco.
Demand is incredibly high and we simply have no room.
We answer this question at least 3-5 times daily.

Selling something?

We never respond to or employ companies who send unsolicited market research, SEO, website, etc. requests. Sorry! Boat and berth questions only, please.
