Hi guys I'm hoping for a few seasoned moboers or anyone with a bit of help/advice here.
My ultimate objective is to determine the type of boat most suitable to buy for me, swmbo and possibly the odd entourage of 1 to several teenagers (horrible things really!)
Would it be realistic or indeed is it possible to travel from the Humber, east coast down, channel and through the French inland waterways and to the med?
Do people do this and how long does it take? A week?
Is stay aboard practical without the in each others face 'caravan effect' in a 35-45/ FB, or is a 40'ish quicker open type better, then stay in hotels guest houses en route? I expect air draft to be an issue inland with a FB.
I'm considering as new as poss boats around 90k with a stretch to 120 ish for the right thing, possibly F37, Phantom 38 type craft or S37, Hunton XRS37 (43err no??) or older sunseeker /similar.
I've even considered a cabin rib for fuel cost reasons as 1.60-1.70odd euros a litre on the med marinas is becoming a bit galling. I think it's the biggest factor putting me off getting my leg in as it appears to be the most uncontrollable overhead of boating at pres. Its not that long ago when 300litres a day was £150-£200 and manageable, now its getting a bit out of hand.
