My 50' slip in Crisfield Maryland on a very nice floating dock, is $2,900 for the year. That's $4.83 per foot per month plus metered electric. I believe the fixed docks are cheaper.

In Alameda, CA I pay $565 for a 46’ x 17’ slip + $350 liveaboard. Water is included and electricity is metered separately. That may seem like a lot but still much less expensive than renting an apartment in this area.

We pay $10. per foot per month in a covered, floating slip in the Sac Delta. Electricity is extra. Not bad when compared to the prices that many of you quote. I hope the owners of our marina do not read this.

Newport beach California just researched for a 50' slip...from $50 to $88 per foot per month plus power! Still tough to find even at these prices...

Given your location, I'd think this is a good price including power and water. How is car parking?
That price is paid down here, but with two year wait lists. Prices driven high by relocating mainland boats, around 30% occupancy, using them as floating condo's.

Next harbor south is 5+ years. Most marinas have parking...some you pay on daily use.

Oh well...Iím lucky to even have a slip in Miami.

I'm at a non liveaboard slip on the New River for my 29' sloop. $350 a month is pretty much the going rate for non liveaboard dockage (about $10 to $15 a foot per month) depending on how far up the river you are!

I thought my new rate of $13.35CAD/foot/month ($9.21USD at today's exchange rate) plus power was getting steep but a bit of research showed that to be the most economical at the southern tip of Vancouver Island.
<heavy sigh>
You didn't buy a boat to save money, did you?

I got a quote from the brand new, not yet open, Saltpring Marina at Moby's Pub in Ganges harbour for the month of August. I occupy 50' overall, so that was what I asked for: $1150, which is $23/'/mo. cheaper in the off season of course, but they were supposed to be open by Thxgiving (mid Oct 2019) and are now hoping for Easter or May 24 long weekend.

I am not going to even name my marina since I don't want you all to run the rates up. $2000 a year for a 35 foot boat in a slip a 50 footer would fit comfortably.

Can be on the Chesapeake in an hour at sailboat speeds. Pool. Yard lets you do your own work. 100t lift.

Man we got it good.

I'd stop boating at some of those rates....

It includes car parking. Sometimes you compete with cars with boat trailers, the marina has a fee paying launching ramp, but I`ve always found a space. There are 5 marinas in close proximity which keeps price in check.

We are relatively new to dock life in Everett. I was surprised to see the same thing. We bought our boat about 6 months ago and started noticing that about 50% of the boats on our dock never move, and we never see anyone around. There are 2 nice GB36' that are always clean but no people, then there is one that looks like no one has stepped foot on it for years.. Doc fees are high and at one time it was a very nice boat. With insurance and fees its got to be around 600 a month? Seams like a waste of a good time and it also plugs up the marina for potential new boats to move in. With a wait list of 3-5 years for covered slips in the 36+ range. Everett has also stopped all new live abords, they even got ride of the wait list this spring.

We have a sad boat like they at our marina...there are many near deserted boats all over the place here. The cost is huge and I just can’t figure it out .The guy shows up once or twice a year, replaces the torn tarps , checks his constantly running bilge pumps and is gone again. The boats a wreck but he pays his moorage....I have heard that the reason for so many derelicts is lack of responsibility and a $5000 crushing fee to dispose of them.

I don't worry about how other people spend their money or treat their things. I refrain from getting involved until I see you start abusing people, animals, or other people's property. Other than that, it's their stuff, they can do with it as they please.

What you're describing is the norm at any marina across the country. It happens for lots of reasons.

Seattle in fresh water 40 ft slip is $600. Includes electricity as long as you don’t exceed some base. So $15/ft/month. No real amenities like shower or anything else.

Transient rates where I am are $20/ft/mth for an 18m (59') berth. More for weekly or overnight. Includes power and water, has laundry and showers, but parking is on the street and metered. Still, its walking distance to the CBD (Downtown if you like) so an excellent location. Liveaboards OK, but extra fee.

I own my berth so its a bit cheaper, but not by as much as it should be IMO. The Govt takes a big whack for the 'seabed lease' and give absolutely nothing in return. The rest of my cost is for marina R&R, and it struggles to keep up as the marina was neglected for a time, had damage from floods not fully rectified etc. I sold one of my berths at the end of last year as I foresee a 'special levy' for electrical rewiring coming not too far down the track.
