Looking for Long Term East-Coast Florida for 35' Catamaran (Water or Hard)

Dear Skippers and Deckhands,

I am currently thinking about moving my Catamaran from the Caribbean to Floridas Eastcoast in next two month, before Hurricane season starts here. Reason: I want to continue to Europe next year (2012), therefore already move this year the Cat to the North.

I DO NOT need a full-service Marina, as I will NOT live aboard or be there too often. I am planning on being there perhaps 2-3 times after arrival until May 2012. Once will be in September/October 2011, another time December/January 2011/12.

I am looking for a Dock or Marina or Boat Yard on the Eastcoast, that is cheap and available for long-term rent.

Perhaps someone has space behind his house or knows someone in a boat yard? Exspecially during summer, places are not expensive and free. So there might be a good chance.

It would also be possible to have the Cat lifted out of the water and stored on the hard for the whole time.

Dimensions: 35ft x 20ft with 3 ft Draft, weight 7200lbs

If you have any ideas, please contact me or write here. I appreciate all valuable comments.

Thanks guys...

Unless you're self-insured, eckipa200, you might want to check your insurance policy - unless you're out of the hurricane box by June 1st, most insurance coverage is void. Out of the box means, typically, north of Cape Hatteras.

How about a 110 Ton Travel Lift with a 30' Beam? It's in Port Canaveral (US space center area)

Re: Looking for Long Term East-Coast Florida for 35' Catamaran (Water or Hard)

Another suggestion - if it's not too late - is American Custom Yacht in Stuart, Fl. They have a huge yard for boat storage on the hard. I've had them pull my cat each hurricane season for the past 3 years. You need to go quite a ways up the St Lucie River (& then the canal) to get to them, but they are the least expensive boat yard I've found in SE Fla. They charged me about $380/month for my 36' cat last year. The boat yard is easy to get to by land (< 5 min from I-95) and they let you do work on the boat (no bottom painting however).

Indiantown Marina is less expensive, but they only have a 16' wide lift. As it doesn't fit my 18' beam, I didn't even think to mention it. Gary s/v Inspiration

I used the Indiantown Marina for several years. I'm not at the Cape Marina at Cape Canaveral. The Canaveral area has the advantage of affordable transportation to the airport. Indiantown doesn't even have bus service anymore, but is probably cheaper.

fyi: Telemar doesn't allow liveaboards if less than 35' (or maybe 35' or less). Don't know why size matters?
