Living On A Boat


Recommended Posts

Is it ok/legal to live permantly on a boat. It would be a boat moored or tied to a jetty? Are there any regulations regarding this?

Not sure if I do this whether it will be in QLD or NSW. If there was regulations they would be state wouldnt they?

Has anybody tired this?

There is info about this on the waterways website. Basically you are not allowed to live on a waterways issued mooring. I'm pretty sure it would go for jetties too. However having said that, there is a bloke at my marina that lives on his berthed boat. Its not like they're going to catch you or anything so go for it.

I have noticed some boats selling as live aboards, However these are for sale in QLD.. Maybe its is fine up there... THe :wife: and I are thinking of moving up to the sunshine state soon anyway... ANd I was thiniing that this could be an option instead of buying a house...
