Looking for good haul-out yard on the east coast

We're in Cape Cod, MA. working our way south and need to get hauled out to do our bottom paint somewhere between here and Miami. Florida. We looked into it in Maine and in Newport, RI on our way up the coast, but the prices were pretty outrageous compared to the Texan prices we paid last time.

We'd love some suggestions. We're a 47' sailboat weighing 30 tons.

Thanks,
Linda and Ricardo
s/v Bailando

Deltaville Marina in Deltaville VA - they can do everything or they will haul it and let you do the work. We had a repower done there and were very happy with the quality of the work. The prices are not what you would find in TX though.

Ditto what Paul said. Here's a link to Deltaville Boatyard: http://www.deltavilleboatyard.com/. I used to have my boat hauled there and thought it was a good yard. I believe that the adjacent marina is a separate operation.

Google Green Cove Springs marina.
Cheapest place in Florida. Plenty of equipment. It is a working boatyard......

Also make sure you ask if you can do your bottom paint yourself or if they need to do it. Around us, all the yards demand that you pay them to paint your boat but one yard allows us to do it so they are the ones that get our business.

There's some place on the Cape I've heard about which is quite cheap. The guy hauls and trailers the boats somewhere inland. I believe it's in Cotuit. Not sure if you are too big.

Re: Looking for good haul-out yard on the east coast

Deltaville and nearby Urbanna in Virginia have a number of highly regarded boatyards that do work at reasonable prices compared to more populus sailing centers. I'm headed down to Urbanna tomorrow, in fact, to have my boat hauled for a variety of repairs. I have heard good things from several people about Chesapeake Boat Works in Deltaville, and I'm taking my boat to Shroeder Yacht Systems in Urbanna on the recommendation of a number of other Valiant owners.

Cape fear boatworks in Wilmington NC is cheap and you can do all your own work of you want. Haul block and launch would be about 450 $ for you. Just have to make the trek up the river but Wilmongton has a nice downtown. Highly recommended! I have my boat there now (41' sailboat with 56'mast.) No problems for me.Very nice people willing to help with anything

Patr1707, How was your clearance under the Hwy17 fixed bridge span. Did you have to wait for low tide?

I've hauled at Jarrett Bay on Core Creek, but Cape Fear Boatworks is 6 miles from my dock and can haul up to 25' beam at a much better rate than JB. Their long term storage rate is also a flat day rate regardless of length or beam. Just wanted to hear someone's firsthand knowledge of going under the fixed bridge.
