Cost for Sailboat Storage 'On the Hard' - Fort Lauderdale

Hello,

I am hoping this is the right location for this post. Would anyone know dry / on the hard storage costs for a sailboat (41'6") in the Fort Lauderdale area? Would also be interested in recommendations / good experiences if there are any.

Thank you!

Just make sure that your 41 foot six inch boat doesn't become 43 or more.

I used to store my boat on the hard up at Indiantown and was pleased with their service. I'm not sure if that's close enough to Fort Lauderdale for you, but their prices are likely much better. They also allow you to work on your own boat without much hassle which can add up to big savings.

Dry storage in FL: does the taxman cometh?

IF a boat is dry stored in FL, will the authorities want to tax the boat if it is from out of state? If so, do they aggressively pursue finding these boats?

"Florida recognizes valid registration certificates and numbers issued to visiting boaters for a period of 90 days. An owner who intends to use his vessel in Florida longer than 90 days must register it with a county tax collector. However, he may retain the out-of-state registration number if he plans to return to his home state within a reasonable period of time." Official Website Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

I'll add however, when I used to store my boat in Florida there were many, many boat owners from out of state who clearly were in violation of the above. I don't know if they ever search boat yards for violators or not. Perhaps someone else can shed more light on that.

Even though I don't live in Florida, I plan to register my new boat there and pay the tax.

I registered mine there, not titled there though. I got the impression from the head of revenue in the county I registered that oudt of state stored boats are not an issue.

Dry storage does not count as "using your vessel" in FL. Storage costs will be in the order of $350 to $450 on the east coast of FL, but you have to go north to Indiantown, Titusville or Fernandina beach.
