Haulout fees...

Silly question time.....

I know it's a bit like asking how long is a piece of string but can I ask for ball park figures for hauling out a 50 foot boat and looking after it for 6 months, anywhere from southern Florida down the Bahamas and the Caribbean....

Thanks

Greetings,
Mr. H. Methinks you may have found something? Rhetorical question. No need to answer.

If you're off the beaten path, I would guess you will start around $1,500. That would include haul, power wash, block, 6 months on the hard, and back in. Could probably spend $5,000 with out looking too hard.

Here is the place in Charleston, SC that I used 5 years ago when I bought the boat. Their rates are $8-$10 per foot of boat.

BUT...yards are all over the place for the "other" charges associated with haulouts....so the best you can do is call around for exactly what you want or post it and see what others have paid...but you will have to be pretty specific because of the variations in charging.

Rates

Thanks for that.... next silly question... what do I want then??? can you tell I'm new to all this...!!! personally I'd like to do everything that is needed on the boat myself so I take it I'd have to find a yard that will let owners work on their boats...??

Greetings,
Mr. H. As you may already suspect from the responses your going to have to do some research to find what "fits" for you. The only place I know of, and my information is dated and my memory is pretty well non existent, is Indiantown Marina - Home I have no idea if they allow you to work on your own boat and you are correct in that some yards will not allow DIY.
There is another facility on the same waterway system that IS a DIY and storage yard but the name escapes me at the moment. Mr. FF should know the area well.

Install Active Captain on your computer and then look at places that fit your needs to store your boat. Some considerations: near where you plant to cruise, access to transportation home, protection from hurricanes, etc. Then with Active Captain, look up the websites for yards in the areas you are interested. Some, but probably the minority, post rates for haulout and storage on their web sites, so call and ask.


Some particularly inexpensive yards can be found on the Okeechobee waterway between Stuart and Ft Myers.

Well it isn't exactly the caribbean, but rates around here range from a low of about $40 a foot to around $120 a foot. Those rates cover the following: Haul, pressure wash, block, storage charge for 6-8 months and relaunch. At the low end you get outside storage while the high end is for inside, but unheated storage. Anything else such as oil changes, system winterizing and covering an outside stored boat would be an add on.

Thanks for the help and advice chaps... I did hours of searching the other day and there are that many boat yards, and none of the 20-30 I found had any prices for anything, just needed a rough idea at this stage...

Thanks again, won't be long till the next silly question I can think of....!!!

Indiantown Marina is still a good choice. A great deal will depend on what you have and need to do to it. There are some more remote yards that will likely be a little less expensive but may not have crane service or near by machine shop and fabrication facilities. Best to determine what services you may need before committing to a yard.

RT... I know, I'm on several other car forums and we think the same, I do know it starts to get a bit tiring when you see the same questions 20 times a week, and people ask questions without giving enough details... I really do appreciate everyone who takes the time to help... We've made the decision to do this, just need to know all the "in's and out's" now...

They are good if you want to do your own work. I had a sketchy experience with their service manager a year or so ago, but I think he is gone now. I also had trouble trying to an get outside vendor (locksmith) allowed in the yard. The yard turned him away even though he was bonded, insured. The service folks were just generally a pain in the ass I thought.

Just FYI on all this. YMMV.

Healhustler (Larry) also has some info on these folks.

Really cool, retro, spot though. Pretty cheap haul out and storage rates IIRC.

Cracker Boy has two DIY facilities. LMC allows DIY. Understand that there are charges in many centers above the haulout charges. Here's a link to LMC's rate sheet. Marine Fort Lauderdale

I'm sure Indiantown and Cracker Boy are much cheaper.

Here's a link to Jarrett Bay's rates:

Rates & Policies | Jarrett Bay Boatworks

You might note that while they allow DIY, they do charge $2 per foot per day for laydays for it. $2.50 if you live aboard.

Better pricing generally in the Stuart, Ft. Pierce areas.

A 1/4 mile away is River Forest , who will haul and store on land , and if you have big bucks in a climate controlled building.

It is NOT a DIY yard .

Sail cruisers and less wealthy motor folks come and store afloat in my neighborhood which is a great Hurricane Hole .

Near either coast few storage yards are the required 15-18ft above sea level for a CAT 5 slammer.

PM if interested and I will see if the neighbors have room.

Many folks feel you have to get south as far as T-dad to be safe in the Carib.

River Forest Yachting Center.
