My guess is the further you get away from NYC the cheaper. So Central Jersey should be cheaper than North Jersey.

But if you really don't know anything about boats, you are asking for trouble, because you almost certainly will be spending more on this boat than you need to.

#1 - You were rude to Anjou. You're not paying us to answer you around here...

# 2 - Is the boat mobile? You will pay $2000 + to have something like that trucked around NJ

#3 - Of course on-land storage is cheaper. If you don't mind the boat being on land, then in the water isn't worth talking about.

#4 - Where exactly is the boat? These things don't just fly around, now do they?

#1 I am sorry , I did not have the intention to be rude with Anjou
I apoligize, maybe my language barrier, made it sound like this
I will answer Anjou

#2 the boat is in goo working condition

#3 I would keep it in land

#4 Boat is in a Marina in North Jersey

There are several inexpensive marinas on the Delaware river around Trenton, NJ... whats the best price you have found? Will you be using the boat often?

I would no be using the boat, only very little in the summer

As I told you, I founf 5k plus 3 k, I also saw Belmar ,marina, they charge also like 5 k summer and 1 k winter plus winterized. I saw this price in their web site
then I saw an ad of someone in Waretown who has a boat slip in a private community, asking like 2.500 for the summer season,but I do not know winter

Hi mate, a former Ft Lee resident here ... with more than my fair share of "friends" in Newark and Hoboken

I might be forgiven for thinking you will be wanting to use it somewhere along the Jersey Shore perhaps?

If so, simply Google New Jersey Marinas and/or New Jersey Boat Storage, then pick up the phone and start making calls. Decide where you would like to be, the respective costs, then perhaps seek input on this site and others about the places you have identified.

That aside, don't let my "Jersey friends" know where you plan to keep it!

Jersey, You've already gotten great answers....

NJ;
My reccomendation would be to contact the brokerages and have 1 of them LIST it for sale. They'll keep it at a slip right at their brokerage often for free.

Why list it for sale? Unless You're planning on HIRING a professional Captain to do Your driving, these are (& YOU ARE) a train wreck waiting to happen. After You take transoms off 6-10 neighboring vessels in departing or docking, You'll be looking for a NEW marina anyway(as balance of membership will be seeking Your Head on a Stick), as well as insurer...if You had 1 to begin with; they aren't real big on writing Policies on GIANT Boats, with clueless owners.
No Offense NJ, but You (& this 46' Pacemaker) are a disaster in the making. Not that it was on the agenda for this summer anyway, but could You post up here where they splash You so we can all stay far & wide?

Sell it and pursue something far more appropriate for a "1st boat" in scale & size...since it was a donation, that's much smarter.
Anjou had a gr8 question, Your answers drew my conclusion.

A twin screw(usually matched to a PAIR of Detroit 8-71's on these) 22 ton 15' beam vessel w/a 4.25' draft is not a STARTER boat.
Your "blowing off" of the initial question, & thereafter "blowing off" responsive answers (as if You expect us to say "go here, they're CHEAPEST") tells us this boat is a real bad fit for Your personality, & the rest of the boating community at large. Sell it.

-Mick

Hey Jersey, don't listen to Mick's recommendation (and I'm being polite by calling it a recommendation). Where he lives they all need a nurse to remind them to take their medications.

Everyone would be so blessed as to have a boat such as this one "left on their doorstep". For example and in line with Mick's assumptions, the answers to such questions as:
  1. what if any boating experience do you have?
  2. do you even like the water?
  3. do you know anyone who can assist in "learning the ropes" of this small ship?
  4. since the prices already quoted to you seem to brought "tears to your eyes" , can you afford to maintain a small ship like this?
are none of anyone's business, as you simply asked and emphasized you seek berth advice, not hobby coaching

On the other hand and in line with Mick's assumptions, if the above questions are in one way or another relevant to your true situation, perhaps you might want to take the above questions on board?

Personally, if I wasn't a "boat person", and something like your vessel came into my life, I would most certainly "give it a go" and see if I would really like it .... though I would also make sure I had someone who is maintenance knowable and also someone experienced skippering always on board until I did "learn the ropes".....
