I am new to spinning (one class) and would like to purchase a spinning wheel. However, I currently live overseas, travel quite a bit, and will also soon be living on a sailboat for a couple of years, so size, weight and ease-of-assembly will be key. Recommendations for must-have accessories will be much appreciated.

Are there any wheels that might fit my needs? Thank you in advance for your responses!!

There are a number of folding wheels that would meet your needs.  Check out the Hitchhiker and the Kromski Sonata

If you're on a boat, maybe you'd like to develop your spindle spinning techniques.
There's nothing smaller & more portable then a spindle.
and it's much cheaper than a wheel  Wink

Many spinners use both a wheel and spindle - depending on mood & project

The Majacraft Little Gem is really small, portable, easy to fold / unfold. And most of all it spins like a dream.

the majacraft looks cute and portable, i have a sonata by kromski, gets the job done and a bit large. well compared to the other smaller ones, but slightly cheaper then those, what about the "bee" from spinolution? or... something journey or something, uses a nice foldable thingy
