Co founders Shannon Lee and Alister Punter said they were at a lunch talking about how great living at sea would be and came up with the idea of having this product available for seniors who were looking for an alternative place to spend their retirement.

It’s a known fact that many retirees love to travel. Elderly will look forward to the many adventures they have been planning over the years. Whether it’s domestic or international travels AARP’s 2019 Travel Trends Survey shows that the average retiree will take up to five trips each year. It’s no surprise that these trips will cost quite a bit of money. The average cost that is spend on these travels is up to $6,000 per year. Unfortunately not everyone that goes into retirement is able to afford these costs.

Not everyone will be able to afford this pricey cost for retirement, but it is certainly a luxurious way to head into retirement.
