Living on a boat can be a great idea, but you have to be ready to leave the stability of a house behind. When you sell up and buy a boat, such as a narrowboat, then you’ve made a very big decision that you wouldn’t want to go back any time soon. With a boat, you have a much smaller market so it’s not always easy to sell it and find the right individual, so from that point of view, there is some risk involved if you find you don’t like the boating lifestyle. That said, if you are a keen boater and you’re ready to make the move, you can set up home in many beautiful parts of the UK, and your base can be wherever the river runs! That’s an incredibly exciting way to enjoy life and it can be full of adventure, you just have to be the right type of individual to truly embrace this lifestyle. Many people in the UK live on boats and it’s a great option for those who are at retirement age and need a new adventure.
