Dockage fees

Reading Marine Trader's post on costs, I was surprised to see how expensive dockage can be in Florida! I'm curious to know how much you are paying in dockage fees on a yearly basis.

Here in Montreal I pay $1,900 for a season (about 4 months) + $800 for winter storage on the hard. So about $2,700 a year.

RE: Dockage fees

Here in North Carolina we pay about the same total cost ($2,500 yearly + Electricity*for 34')*but we are in the water all year round and you can use the boat even in the winter.* We were out for 3 days over New Years.

3600 a year for a 40ft slip in the Galveston Bay area...there are cheaper and there are more expensive....so I guess this would be about average.

RE: Dockage fees

About the same here in my area of the Chesapeake - about $2,400 - $2,600 for the year.* I get about 8 months in the water, 4 months on the hard in the back lot.* Lift fees are extra.

We paid $3,200 last year for our forty foot slip in Bellingham, WA. We are anticipating a big increase this year.

Dockage fees

Things are softening up in many parts of Florida with the exeption of the Keys. In Ft. Myers I paid $16.00 per ft per year plus tax ($8,709) and electric. Livaboards paid an extra $100.00. This was a nice place with floating docks and good RR's. The second tier marinas will probably bargain.

Wow! You guys have it great! How about $8,400/year ($700+/mo) for a 35' slip in San Diego? (That includes power of course and is a non live a board.)

$700.00 plus electric*is about right for a first class marina in Florida or around South Carolina.* I pay $1100.00 per month to be lifted out and stored inside a building when not aboard.* This saves on diver expense, bottom painting, haulouts, and gives piece of mind.* I live about 10-11 hours drive from the boat.* It is protected from the ravages of nature, and ready when I am.* Great marina with excellent service.* It is a great location for cruising or fishing.

Dockage fees

No marina here, which I suppose is good and bad. We pay $150/yr for a town mooring fee (we own the mooring) plus about $750/yr in yacht club dues and fee to keep a dinghy at the float (water at the YC float, steward to assist with docking, gear carrying and dinghy bailing and parking is included in membership) and about $100 for an annual mooring ground tackle inspection.

RE: Dockage fees

Uh Oh!**** ...You guys aren't going to like this but maybe you'll just be happy for me. Mind you this isn't fancy moorage but I don't need to worry about my foot ripp'in through the decking on the floats and we pay for power separately (.22 a KWA) and we have fresh water outlets 15 or so feet from the boat. Guys ride around on the floats on quads and Nobody seems to care about wakes, dogs, dog stuff and other stuff I think they should care about but the annual fee makes up for all that. $562.00. In some ways this is a very inexpensive place to live. Covered moorage is unobtainium.

Dockage fees

For less than $600/year you can dock in*Wrangell AK. Prices are low in AK because of excellent State support.**The new docks in Wrangell are very nice - in act the best I've seen anywhere.* Around Vancouver and Victoria the higher end places are about the same as SoCal $10 -*15 per foot per month.

Mystic, Ct. $4400 for the 14 ft wide summer slip includes utilities and cable (but I don't have a TV aboard). Free wifi now too.

Winter storage would be $1600 at the summer marina but I store up the CT river and pay $760.

Hmmmm, sort of like Canadian healthcare. How come they don't call that "welfare boating?"

RE: Dockage fees

60 ft uncovered in Alameda, Ca ( SF Bay Area) $6500 annually plus power

38 ft covered slip nice marina near Stockton $4200 plus power anyone looking for a 36ft Gibson in the CA Delta area, paying for 2 slips is no fun.

Ray where are you paying $4200 annually in the bay area ?
