Berth Fort Lauderdale

Our boat is being repaired after a serious accident by Irma at a Fort Lauderdale shipyard. The mast has a long delivery time. Therefore, I am looking for a cheap mooring to safely leave our boat for about 2months, after completion of the work on the hull. Oceanis 54 'draft 1.8m or 6.2'. Does anyone have any advice?

Re: Berth Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale doesn't rhyme with "cheap". You might find someone with private dockage who would appreciate a quiet (i.e. unoccupied unused) boat and give you a price break, but the odds are you can do better heading up the ICW to one of the more reasonable places north past West Palm. Rashly assuming the boat is OK for the motor trip.

Re: Berth Fort Lauderdale

I currently berth my Passport 40 in one of the canals, after 6 bridges. The small canals, are really small. I found my berth by looking at craigslist, and other sites:

Dock Search - Boat Docks for Rent or Sale, Slips, Dock Space Rental / Sales, Marina Rental

https://www.dockskipper.com

And some other. Do a google search. I can't remember which were the better ones. You will be calling a lot of them who don't have availability right now really, even if listed. So make a long list, and start calling.

Cheers.

Or just do a search right here on Cruisers Forum:
I rent docks in Fort Lauderdale, right now I have one for a small boat, low 30s.
Several of the docks I deal with are occupied by boats for sale. Hard to tell in advance when and if a sale will happen.
In many cases the docks are restricted more by beam and draft than length.
In my neighborhood the average canal home has 65 feet of water front, 5’ setback each end means max boat length is 55’. Canals are 60’ wide, but only 18’ can be used from the seawall, including the docks. 5’ dock and only a 13’ beam are allowed. Some docks are only 2’ wide to accommodate a beamier boat. Some canals are wider and deeper than others.
There is a service called Dockfinders, try them as well. Or buzz around in a dink and look for signs on the docks: For Rent.

A bit on the fat side.
Got a dock available that can take up to 14 beam and 5.5 draft.
Located between David Bld Bridge and Lauderdale Marine Center on the New River, Fort Lauderdale.

Re: Berth Fort Lauderdale

Also have a 65’ dock available, 16’ beam, 55’ length but the catch is, it comes with a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo next to the dock.
$2000 for the package, annual lease.

(In case an eager moderator wants to delete this post because: It is commercialand it is real estate: Private only, neither the docks or the condo are listed or commercial. Strictly Cruisers helping Cruisers, which is was this bulletin board was set up to do in the first place)
