Mooring Ball Near Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I am in the process of purchasing a 52 ft sailboat and I need a mooring ball (least costly) in or around the Ft Lauderdale FL area. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

About the only mooring balls in that area are Las Olas in Ft. Lauderdale and Dinner Key Marina in Miami. Chuck

At 52 feet I hope that's real shoal draft.

Now that you mention that, draft may not be so much of an issue as most mooring fields have a length limitation. Chuck
