Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

Is there any good places around Elizabeth City or Edenton, NC?

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

I am looking for a slip in North Carolina starting fall 2013. Anyone know of any that aren't expensive or a good mooring area? This is for a 40' sailboat with a 6' draft.

Thanks,
Andrea

Is that an "every year" tax, do you know? Or just once after purchase, like a sales tax?

NC taxes personal property each year. Much like property tax paid on a home.

NC registered boats are automatically added to the tax role in the county they are registered.

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

Bridge Pointe Marina (across from Newbern Grand) is back open. I have just had a conversation with the new manager and it sounds like it is going to be quite cruiser friendly with many of the prior problems corrected.

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

In New Bern the taxes are every year, the marinas notify the county in January the date that you arrived. We left one week before the six months was up, the marine provided us with an invoice which showed the departure date which we had to take to the county tax office to be deleted from the tax roles.

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

Sadly as of Oct 1st last year NC requires all (including documented) boats in the state for more than 90 days to have a state registration. Just another fee to boat owners.

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

I agree with others that River Dunes is nicest and safest marina in NC. Superb facilities, friendly staff, clubhouse with restaurant on premises and cottages for rent in case you want to be on land for awhile. 8' depth in marina although depth not an issue for your cat.

Can anyone provide further info on this requirement? Is it for boats in the water or for boats being stored? Does it include boats being repaired?

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

It is simple if the boat is in the state it is required to be registered. That said if it is on land and you are working on it you are not likely to be checked. But I do know marinas are required to report all boats for personal property taxes so they may ask for registration although I have not heard of it happening.

You should confirm this with the marina(s) you are considering.

I simply would not pay this. Find a marina/boatyard that wants your business and put together a plan.

This small government/low tax Republican NC legislature is anything but.

Re: Advice on North Carolina Marinas

South Harbor Village in Southport is a nice place. We have not stayed there but dock in Southport Marina each summer and have stopped in at South Harbor to visit the restaurants. I have never heard of a problem with security and the staff is very nice and accommodating. There are several car rental option within about 5 miles of the marina, and Myrtle Beach and Wilmington airports are 45 to 55 minutes drive.
