We spend 6 months on the Chesapeake and 6 months in Sint Maarten. The problem is we pay yearly for two slips which makes it expensive. Last Summer we were able to get a 6 month contract in Annapolis as there were many empty slips - a situation unheard of prior to the recent economic downturn.

Sausalito, California. $800 per month for a 50' slip, power not included. That comes with a single parking pass. If you want an extra parking pass for guests, add another $60 per month.
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

Marina Del Rey, California. At the facility where I am at I pay $790/month for a 45' slip. This in a non live aboard price and includes water and one 30 amp 110 volt connection, two parking passes and access to free showers.

When they allow live aboards they charge 55% more which would bring my slip fee to $1224.50/month and includes a key to get into the apartment complex for access to coin operated laundry room.

Think realestate.... Location and features drive the costs. In my area (Annapolis MD) costs for a 50' slip vary from about $1,000 a month down to about $600 a month (on average). If you want a prime location on Spa Creek with a view of downtown, pool, club house etc think high. If you just want a place to park the boat with power and water you can get by with a lot less.
Give some thought on how you plan to "use" the marina and ask a lot of questions about "hidden costs" like club dues. Do you plan to stay tied-up and use the facilities or do you park the car, load the boat and go? Are you really going to use that pool that your paying a lot of money for? Will you be involved with the clubhouse activities or will you be wishing that the music would stop so you can enjoy some silence? What about security... does a lot of stuff become "missing".

Well, you get the idea.... think and look before you leap.

260.00 a month, an extra 20.00 a month for liveaboards, includes showers, water, and free wifi. There is also a laundry room here, and nice swimming pool, and free trash pick up. The only bad thing is no pump out or fueling station, but we aren't that far from Port Aransas Texas, or Corpus Christi Tx. We have a 41ft, and I think that is the maximum length they accomodate here in Ingleside at the Bay.

Considering that the op plans on moving around a lot, then I think he's seeking the "Guest/Transient" rates, as opposed to the long term rates. He needs to be aware that many places have waiting lists and the only moorage that may available to him short term is at the higher guest rates.

To give an idea of the difference @ our Marina:

Long term Rates for 50ft, Full Facilities = $493 +($78fees & taxes)= $572/mo

The guest rates for the same are as follows:

$10 nightly fee (or $20/ft monthly)
$1/ft per day moorage
$3.75 per day electricity & facilities

On a monthly basis(winter), that's $1000+$112 = $1,112/mo
Summer would be more $$.

About double the costs for the guest moorage.

Looked up a slip in Panama City, Florida. Was $840 a month for a 41 foot boat....

Tyndall AFB there has slip space for about $150 a month for the same boat.

Kentucky Lake - Lighthouse Landing

My Hunter 356 is $1,960 per year including electricity, water, wi-fi and free pump-outs. There is no cable tv on the dock here. I have a tracking KVH sat antenna with Dish for TV. We are at Lighthouse Landing. There are two other marinas near by - Green Turtle Bay on the Cumberland - Lake Barkley and Kentucky Dam Marina just across from us and located on the west side of the lake.

If you are considering a summer spot out of hurricane country, come to Kentucky Lake. Great sailing on large lake. We are a little over 600 miles north of Mobile. Come up the Tenn-Tom and hit the Tennessee River and come to mile 24. We are a couple of miles south of Kentucky Dam.

In Forked River, NJ it's around $105/foot for a wet storage from April 15th through October 15th, includes pomp-out and water, electricity is $200 extra for a 30 amp outlet. Dry storage is $35/foot for winter, which also includes a haul-out, a drop-in and a bottom power wash. So a slip for a 30 foot boat would cost $3,370 (plus $200 for the electric) for a slip and an additional $1,123 for a dry storage (including sales tax). State marina rates are much less - $67/foot for a slip (no additional tax), electric and water included - no dry storage available. A waiting list is long though, used to be ca 2 years!
