“Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and sails; that’s what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What [a ship] really is, is freedom.” -Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
When contemplating a move to Placencian paradise we know a large part of the pull is the desire for that freedom. If boat owning is in your plans let us encourage you further with 3 the secret reasons why life is better as a boat owner.
- Healthy ZEN
boating is actually an excellent investment in your health. The more time you spend on the water the more relaxed and tranquil you become, strengthening your mind and body. In fact, boating is one of the few known activities that has been proven to extend your natural life-span.
- Family Bonding
Boating helps to draw a family closer together. The necessity of working together as a team coupled with the fact that you will be traveling in an area often slightly larger than a bathtub will definitely inspire bonding.
Boating has always been an adventure: from the first mariners that set sail to discover new worlds to the commercial fishermen and merchant seamen even today who go down to the sea in ships. The seamen who opened world trade routes around the Horn, the captains and crew who fought the world’s great sea battles, and the birch bark canoe men were adventurers all. Whenever or wherever you take to the water in your boat, from a dinghy to a yacht, you are joining the ranks of marine adventurers of all time. There is always an unknown ahead of you — an adventure awaits.
If you don’t own a boat just yet, you still might not get it. But trust us, one day you will. Because there’s not a dedicated boater out there who can imagine life as a landlover.
