Wintering in the Annapolis area

Hi All, i'm new to this forum so take it easy on me,
Looking to lay up my yacht in the Annapolis area Maryland MD for about 10 months, July 2018 to April 2019 any advise on a reasonable price & good security? 48 ft Mono 15 ton, I'm located in Australia & have no knowledge of the area.
Thanks in advance

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

We have been at Bert Jabins Yacht Yard for the last couple years for about a month at a time. It is as very pleasant setting but might be pricey if you are just leaving the boat. I would look at their storage rates on the hard. They have a lot of boats out and their prices seem reasonable and are on their website. They have security that patrols at night and seem very safe. We would leave our boat here without hesitation. (and often do. :-))

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

You could check out Bert Jabins Boatyard, Port Annapolis Marina, or maybe Eastport Yaching Center on Back Creek. Or Holiday Point or Liberty marinas on the South River (town of Edgewater, adjacent to Annapolis). Or Casa Rio Marina on Cadle Creek/Rhode River (still in Edgewater). Or another option might be Bay Bridge Marina on the east side of the Bay and the foot of the bridge.

Further away but maybe with useful rates and storage facilities, Hartge's Yacht Yard in Galesville, MD, or Herrington Harbor North Marina in Deale, MD. These are 15-20 miles south of Annapolis.

You can (maybe still) use ActiveCaptain to find 'em, and they probably all have websites.

Cross the bay and leave the boat in Rock Hall. There are multiple marinas there that will give you reasonable prices. If you just want cheap yard space, look at gratitude Marina in Rock Hall Maryland. A No-Frills place and you should be able to get excellent rates. If you need any work done on the Eastern Shore, I would recommend Haven Harbour for the work. They are also located in Rock Hall. As a side note, there is a West Marine in Rock Hall and an awesome chandlerie called Rock Hall Marine Railway. They have everything there.

The only issue with Rock Hall vs Annapolis is that Rock Hall is a pain to get to by public transportation. Annapolis would definitely win in that regard.

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

Jabin and Port Annapolis will be the most expensive. Herrington Harbor North would be my first choice. Then Hartge or Scandia Marina

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

My wife and I are live-aboards at Port Annapolis Marina (12 years) and have a Hunter 41. We pay about $8,000 per year for our annual slip fee plus $100 per month live-aboard fee. If you are planning to live aboard, Port A is a good place to stay. They do not meter electricity and have a portable pump-out cart which makes its rounds weekly the entire year round. Jabin's is a great working marina and we actually get all our work done there. We stayed there initially (for 2 years). They are slightly less expensive than Port A but electricity usage is metered and billed quarterly. There is no pump-out available over the winter months at the marina. (The Harbor Master runs a pump-out boat which makes its daily rounds from mid-March to mid-November.)

If you're looking to put the boat on the hard or just letting it in a slip unoccupied, I would definitely look at marinas on the eastern shore. It will be far less expensive than keeping the boat in Annapolis proper. Our boat in Cambridge (Generation III Marina) would cost about $2,000 per year. I'm not too familiar with marinas in he Rock Hall area so would refer you to someone who knows. You may be required to pay an annual slip fee unless you can negotiate a prorated fee for the length of time you need. I hope this helps...

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

I second Herrington Harbor North. Been down there about 5 ears now. Very inexpensive for on the hard storage. The yard also has several vendors for boat work, almost all of them (save one, who shall not be mentioned) are excellent. The electrical folks (MTS) can check on your charging system over the winter, and keep your battery banks sweet. There are several folks there that can inspect your boat monthly. One of those is my daughter who is a rigger at the yard, and can help you out with those kind of issues.
The closer you get to Annapolis, the more expensive it gets. Herrington North is hard to beat, IMHO.

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

Know people who have keep boats and/or live-aboard at both Hartge and Herrington Harbor North. Agree that both locations would be excellent options... would keep you on the western shore of the bay and a lot closer to Annapolis.

Re: Wintering in the Annapolis area

Hello & Welcome to MD in advance. If you’re looking for a ritzy place then Herrington might be the place for you. I’ve keep my boat at Whitehall Marina, a small but well kept, extremely secure yard located 10 min from Annapolis just west of the bay bridge.

I can’t say enough good things about it. During the winter you can leave the boat on the water or place it in the yard. Very reasonable by comparison. You can work on your boat or Scandia Marine has a good shop on premises.

Very reasonable prices, beautiful location, close to the bay. Extremely friendly. Have witnessed the owner John Whitehall going out & checking docklines many times before a big storm. (WhitehallAnnapolis.com)

Annapolis Landing Marina. In the water. There are a couple of small places nearby. Not cheap. If you want to drive south 40 minutes there is Herrington Harbour Marina. Part of the lovely small village of Rosehaven. Very safe and relatively inexpensive. PM me if you want. Oz....

Coomsby, where did you end up? If you choose Herrington Harbor North, I can check in on her for you. We live right near there.
