Moving to New Home Port

Hi, we are relocating from our current Marina to the East Florida Coast. We are looking for good live aboard marina between Vero Beach and Stuart.

Any info would be appreciated.

Not the exact areas you requested but might help
South of Vero gets pricey .
Ft Piece is a bit north of Vero
Harbor town of Ft Piece is a live a board , Nice marina.
Nice boating , direct access too ocean
I was based out of Cape Canaveral and know of a number , again
not in Vero , all north of Vero but gives you a few too consider
Harbor town of Merritt Island is live a board = Nice Marina , ICW ,
access too ocean thru Lock but will be under construction I believe starts
Dec , Then only access too ocean is Sebastian Inlet.
Port Canaveral is direct access too ocean , has a number of live a board
Cape Marina Live aboard , next door too Cape Marina is
Port Canaveral Yacht club is live aboard.
Know nothing of availability but since nobody has responded gives
you a few options .

Ft Pierce is a bit south of Vero, north of Stuart

Harbor town in Ft Pierce is often full for winter transients by now, maybe permanent spots are open.

There is a new marina on the causeway east of Ft Pierce City Marina but exposed to strong sourherlies.

Ft Pierce May already be full again for long term winter but may have a few permanent slips.

Also a smalis marina over on South Hutchinson Island about half way to Stuart ...don't recall the name now...again usually full by now.

Canaveral lock is closed for the next few months for maintenance, so being in Harbortown marina will leave you tied to the ICW or Banana River, or you'll have to go down to Sabastian Inlet to get out to sea, and Sabastian Inlet is a rough unless you have plenty of power or you cross at slack tide.
