What's your moorage rate?

Our annual moorage rate at MK Bay Marina in Kitimat, BC just went up about 9%, which got me wondering where our rate sits in the scheme of things.

We pay $78.00 per foot for the year, for a total of $2,340.00 for our 30 footer.

There is only one other option in town in Minette Bay, but it's accessible only at mid to high tide and is run down to say the least.

What about you?

Here on the Maine coast we pay quite a lot more. This year the marina is charging $115 per for for the season (May-October). Power is $7.50 a day extra. During the Winter space is $150 per month and shore power and water are not available. There really isn't any competition so they can charge what they want. Also the marina business is seasonal here so they have to make their money during the 6 month season. Nightly rate is $3.25 per foot and power is $15 extra. I rent 68' of marina space so my marina bill is $7,820 per year without shore power.

This is going to be a wild ride of a thread.

Here on the Neuse, we pay around $7/ft./month. so for our 42' breaks out to annual rate of about $3000-$4000 per year.

Atlantic Highlands NJ is at $140 per ft for a slip for the season. Moorings are $2100 or so for the season.

So that's $8400 for the season for us (60 ft LOA) in a slip.

My boat is 37 feet.
I pay 100$ per month. Free water, free electric, although it is only 20 amps.
Hampton Va Marina Cove on the Back River.
Marina is old but kept up. About a third of the boats are waterman.
They can haul out and I am a DIY guy, so I can do it all there.

Prior I had the boat at Southall Landings in Hampton. I paid $1200 every 6 months. Marina has a pool, security, fancy place but very many biting flies. No haul out, basically just for parking the boat. If I rolled my toolbox down the wharf, I would get frowny faces. And sort of got the impression they don't like people working on their boats there.

I like keeping the boat in Hampton Va since there is no personal property tax on boats there.

I pay $250/month for a 20'x60' covered slip in a 6-year old marina. That includes water. When I first got into the slip the marina installed the right receptacles so I would have 50A 240V and 50A 120V. I'm billed separately for the electricity I use.

The marina is really top notch, with floating docks, 10' wide concrete walkways, 8' wide concrete finger docks. No other amenities to speak of, but a nice bunch of people who work here and who have their boats here.

I'm in a boathouse, which I own. The rental of the 840 square feet of water it floats on is around $580/Mo, so +/- $7,000.00 yr.

$1200 per summer season for the mooring. $1300 outside winter storage on the hard.

Some seasons when I know I'm not going to use her, I leave her on land for the summer. I get a small refund. Not sure how that works.

I recently purchased a covered 48' slip in Memphis for a little over $20k. CAM and property taxes work out to about $1k per year. I rented at various marinas for 10 years before that, so it's nice to have my own spot and not have to pay "the man" every month. Slips in Memphis and Kentucky Lake (TN River) were generally around $3,500 per year for a 40 foot covered slip.

In Warwick RI I pay $120/ft for May-October. Electricity, one 30amp, is $75 for the season. Winter is $40/ft and includes haul, powerwash, blocking, and launch. It is a full service marina with pool, hot tub, grills, and ship's store. The closer you get to Newport the more expensive it gets.

$14/foot/month plus tax plus electric in JAX, FL That's the live-aboard rate. You can save 5% for a 6 month pre-pay or 10% for annual.
