At what age does being on a yacht lead to sore muscles and joints to the point it is no longer fun? About how long after retirement from employment does the average person continue to keep a yacht? Does yacht ownership feel more confident while earning a full time salary? Or any less confident and worthwhile during retirement due to being on a fixed income/fear of unknown costs? I'm trying to see the macro trend in the US for used boat prices for 50-80 foot power cruisers over the coming years for the purpose of planning a budget. New boat prices are insane. The average age of US retirement is 62 and the boomer bubble is 1946-1964. Using averages to predict macro trends. The oldest boomers are presently 73, youngest are 55. An internet search yielded no stats on average age to retire from yachting. I don't want to plan to cruise the ocean 20 years from now only to discover that I ache too much. General thoughts and opinions on the trends in boating styles/ages/locations/amenities that you're observing?
