You have marinas and you have marinas but prices in California or Massachusetts won't really mean much for you.

Figure out where you want to keep your boat, get on Active Captain and check the rates. If long term rates aren't posted, call them on the telephone.

I'll bet you'll get a good price at Kilkenny Marina in GA.

In the PNW. I don't know your area, but marinas/ports that cater to commercial fishing usually have cheaper rates. Often the docks aren't as nice, no babysitters, etc. Sometimes you can find a private dock, I usually do. Just paid a months dockage, $400 for an 83' boat. Electricity, no water (but I make my water), no internet, no laundry, but have that, too. In a yacht harbor I'd pay $800-1000 or more. About $500/month If I stay in a slip in a commercial port. One is $600, but free power, water and internet. Less expensive dockage is out there if you look and you're not fussy.
I can remember paying 50 foot, but that was long ago.

Just across the Pacific, we pay $17.50 per foot per month, including water and electricity. But that`s cheap,because there are 5 marinas within a bulls roar of each other, some other marinas charge half as much again, or more. AUD of course, so around $14 USD.

At our home port (Seabrook, Texas) we spent $12 per foot per month for a covered slip. Were cruising the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers, where were finding about $10 to $12 per foot on monthly rates or $1 per foot per night on less than weekly rates.

Much cheaper on this side of the continent, Bruce.
Mine's just gone up to $7/ft (about USD$5/foot) including power, water and secure parking.

I am about 50 miles south of Boston in Fairhaven. I paid reasonable slip fees at a local shipyard for 25 years or so with the last cost nearing $4K for my 40' Silverton aftcabin.

Ten years ago I joined the Auxiliary here in Fairhaven which allowed me to have a slip at their docks that I took advantage of some 5 years ago. My cost is $10/ft plus another $100 for a season. Sure, each member is required to provide some help, all of 8 hours each year. Such a great deal, I gladly do as much as I can, more than the required 8 hours by far.

And our harbor (New Bedford/Fairhaven) is protected with a hurricane barrier.

That's nice but you are 3000 miles from the OP's request.
As for that, it would help if he told us little more precisely where in the southeast and what kind of slip and term of occupancy.

My marina charges more per foot for larger slips less for smaller slips. Has security 24 hours a day, fuel 7 days a week, nice clean bath houses and laundry facilities (2) at the bath houses. Our boat is in a 50 ft slip, taxes and electricity averages $10.45/ft a month. Living aboard is another $75/month pump out at the slip adds another $40/month but is free at the fuel dock if we do it ourselves.

I'm in Jupiter, north of West Palm Beach and at $17.85 a foot per month. Very secure little hurricane hole private marina, has cameras on my boat which I can view online and locked access. Right around the corner from all services and the inlet and IC. Good thing because marina has no services at all. Just a slip. We looked from Stuart (45 minutes north by car) all the way to Miami. The further down the coast, the closer to Miami, the higher the price. Stuart @ $12+- a foot and ending at BandB's quoted Fort Lauderdale/Miami prices of $25-$45 per foot per month. Directly proportional and related to how close you got to FTL/MIA.

Thank you all for your posts, you have given some great ideas. I am south of Savannah now but am researching places for next year and trying to balance location, price and distance from ATL. I use her for family vacations but also get away to fish with my son. While I work I want to find places that I can take her and spend even more time when I retire. Thank you again
