Question Need cheap liveaboard slip in Ft. Lauderdale in March

My wife and I are going to Ft. Lauderdale to pick up our new baby 43', and will need a liveaboard slip with services for three weeks beginning Mar 19 or so while we get her ready to go north. Any suggestions?

Ha,ha,ha,ha. I am sorry, but cheaps slips in Ft. Lahdedah is really really funny. Get north of the fabulous gold coast and the prices come down quite a bit. Try maybe West Palm Beach, Stewart or anywhere away from there or Miami.

FLL in the high season, good luck. You may get recommendations to look at a couple of the local marine publication classifieds, but most everything will say "NO LIVEABOARDS" right up front.

Perhaps if you ask the seller, and don't say "liveaboard" but ask about dockage for three weeks "while we're outfitting the boat".

Well, don't laugh too hard.

Try Riverbend Marina...They are not cheap or expensive, somewhere in between.

Talk to Robert and say hello from me..

I was talking about the anchorage just a half mile south of Peanut Island "Lake Worth Inlit (Palm Beach)
Stuart has at least 1 good one also.
I think if your looking for a live aboard marina -maybe you can find one in Stuart. Many of the marinias have been sold off and high rises are being built or are planned.

Drop me a line if your gonna be there in the next month I will be in town

Ww will be heading that way in April, may see you.

What arevthe depths like around there, we draw 7'6", sounds a great spot, much prefer an anchorage to a marina, definitely place of last resort for us.

Most area you will have plenty of water , there are a few places near the N. West side that may be a little shallow, the rest is over 10 feet at low tide.

Thanks for the above feedback. Riverbend in Ft. L. is being renovated and not suitable for liveaboard now. And no self-service work is allowed. Looks like the City marinas might work, but at $50/day - Cooley's Landing and Las Olas.
