Maybe roverhi or caribbeancraig started my jealousy mood before your post though...

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

I pay 1000 € per season here in SW Finland for a 35ft. Comes to around 200/month with our normal splash and haul out dates.

yes well 8 meters is a very long way

and I do have to walk all the way around my garden furniture, adding perhaps another couple of meters.

of course - sitting here in my kitchen, I look out at the boat and it it the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning and the last thing I see when I go to sleep at night (aside from my lovely wife)

Next time you smack your shin on the garden furniture carrying your gin supplies to the boat... It won't be me smugly thinking.... (language censored as per CF rules)

yah - gin tankage is a real issue (se thread by Dockhead). I try to keep 6 bottles on hand, but for some strange reason it seems to evaporate (sigh).

They're just not making the corks like they used

I'm with ya on that one brother!

I keep the "day tank" in the fridge .... But every time I need to replenish it, there seems to be some mysterious loss from the big bottle reserves...

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

Used to be 93/month for a 40 foot slip, but the word got out and now they have raised it to 106/month or so. Electricity is another 7-10 dollars.
But its a terrible marina, so please don't come

Anchoring out is limited to 48 hours and State Moorings in Kailua-Kona are untenable in the winter and subject to large swells year around. Only had to wait 5 years for a slip which seriously limits boat ownership.

Spending a good deal of time in the San Diego area and thought about a getting a small daysailer there. Have given up on that idea as slip rents are $15 a foot. Can't see paying $350 a month for a boat I'd only be able to use 3-4 months a year. The way things have gone in SoCal, only the rich and famous can afford to keep a boat because of the slip fees. Evident by the short to non existent waiting list for small slips but long lines for the 35' and up ones.
You're so right about SoCal. I'm not wealthy or famous by any means, it's basicially a significant part of my income pays for the slip. I just love to sail. And we live in SoCal. That's where the kids go to school and where my job is. (Dana at over $17 a foot has to be one of the most expensive harbors on the west cost of the U.S.)

Been on the 35 foot wait list for 2 years. Maybe in another 5 or so I could get a longer slip -- hopefully I'll be gone by then.

Roverhi: You may want to look at some sort of partnership if you want access to a boat here in SoCal.

How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

Just signed on to a regular slip in San Pedro after several years of sea gypsy with no home slip. $17 per foot plus electricity. Nice showers, security, gates, parking. Nice marina but nothing is in walking distance. Yes $765 is crazy, and that is NOT for live aboard. We can only spend 3 nights on board per week. Fortunately when we rented out our house we didn't include the guest house so have some where to go.

Not to hijack the thread, if you are not a legal live aboard what are the rules you live under? I can be on my boat all day every day but can only sleep on it 3 nights per week. Not sure if I can stay on board 23 hours per day if I stay awake though.

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

Harbor Island West Marina, San Diego Bay. $680.

One of the most convenient Marinas in San Diego Bay, also one of the older, less well kept, and less expensive Marinas. Great people, nice vibe, not too clubby. Least expensive Marina in the South Bay is about 2/3s the cost, most expensive is nearly double.

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

It might be more useful to tell us what type of boat your are buying and where you plan to cruise with it.


Otherwise, you are just getting random numbers that may mean very little to your situation.


Basically, the shorter your boat, the longer your commitment, the lower the quality of the marina and the less popular the destination...the cheaper the slip will be.


Example: A guy who keeps a 40' boat year round in a quite backwater location with an oversupply of marinas, may pay less than a guy who has a 27' boat that is moving daily between marinas in a popular tourist destination.

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

Harbor Island, San Diego

$770 40' Slip
$250 liveaboard fee (for two)
$ 10 fee to hook to shore power (mandatory) + $0.25/ KwH
$ 10 fee to hook to really bad low definition cable TV (mandatory)
$ 30 fee to park (mandatory) there is NO other parking on the island
$ 60 rent for locker (4' x 8') I have five bicycles and they are not allowed on dock

$PRICELESS - living in year round warm sunshine and being less than five miles from everything that makes life good

I am trying to purchase a 16' sailing dinghy to keep at a 12' long side tie that no other boat can access. But, the marina wants to bill me another $216 for that slip even though no one has ever been tied to it in the 5+ years I've lived here

Live in San Diego is very expensive!

Re: How Much Does Your Slip Cost ?

Others have described their privately owned slips. That too is our dream, or nightmare now that we have found a possible candidate.

We are lusting over a small condo that has an attached 45' dock. It is 1,600 square feet and was built in 1978. Nothing in the condo has been changed since the day it was built. But, it has a 450 square foot patio that opens directly onto the private dock.

Title to the dock conveys with the condo title and the monthly $556 HOA fee maintains the dock, condo exterior, roof, and provides insurance.

It is in Coronado Cays - has an unobstructed view looking east over south San Diego Bay and Otay Mountain/ Mt Miguel.

There are only two problems with buying our own 45' slip on San Diego Bay. First is the $850,000 purchase price and 2nd is the $150,000, which the local remodel expert says is spent to bring that model condo up to modern living standards.

But - to have a slip that is just yards from sailing water would be wonderful.
