We're at 8.20/ft at Shelter Bay in the Anacortes area. With our new dock upgrade this winter we are now required to pay for a dock box at an additional $7.00/mo.

$4.00 is sounding pretty dang good to me!

How about $17.50 ft./month. Water and electricity included. AUD so it`s not so bad. But no dock box.

I dock our boat at our house, so it is free. Other than the work taking care of the house...

The original price was a "Gift" the new price is a bargain.

You should ask them if you can pay for the next five years in advance at that price.

We pay $13.00 a foot yet the marina has boats that have not moved in years (not live aboards.) Ya gotta wonder why anyone would pay slip fees, insurance, boat cleaning, etc. on a boat that never moves?

Bargain

Up at RQYS in QLD (the only one near us with available, easy access berths) if I was going in as liveaboard it would be $34/ft
That's around $25,000 a year to park the boat

Other marinas are cheaper, but suitable berths are non existent.

Needless to say, we don't do marinas.

Ours jumped a few dollars this year too. Up from $72/ft to 80 for the season. So a bit over $300 extra. Still not horrible for the area and at least the increase was very visibly to fund some significant dock improvements.

I pay $260/month for my 60' x 20' covered slip and I ain't complaining a bit. It goes up a few bucks every year but I'm still not griping. No place else to park the boat if I were to get kicked out.

No bitchin' Mike

I describe my $630pcm marina as "rustic" in terms of facilities. No showers, no laundry, some other drawbacks, but it`s the floating kind and the owners are friendly to deal with.

Here in the great City of Miami, the city commissioners found it perfectly acceptable to raise the rates on the city marina by about 25% right after the marina had just been destroyed by Hurricane Irma. 2 1/2 years later, we have spotty electricity, water is back, no pump out, lots of missing pilings, only a few small trash cans that are only picked up every few days (used to be picked up every morning), missing finger piers, and I get to pay $24/ft/mo. Oh, and rats. We now have a rat problem and they have caused a lot of damage to boatsí wiring. The rats came along as a result of the garbage that sits all over the place not being picked up daily. Oh well...Iím lucky to even have a slip in Miami.

If I was to live aboard they'd double the charge for power, from $54 to 108, that's for a 20A plug that's actually on a 15A breaker. They make up some of the low price there, and rates do go up in the summer but I'm not there then. The docks, lighting, power, water & parking are all good, as are the showers ($3/5min) and laundry ($2.75/2.75). It's open-access, no security but I haven't locked the boat in the 5 years it's lived there. Not much happens in a town of 600 that's a ferry ride away from anyplace else, and that's still a 5hr drive from anywhere... A fuel truck comes to the loading dock on Thursdays, diesel is 20% or more below fuel dock prices.

$4,032 per season (Summer). Season is basically 5 months long. On a 35 foot boat, that is $23.04/ft per month including water and electric.
