Help marina wanted in florida

Hello
I am tring to found a marina in Florida

than can acomodate a catamaran 38 feet with 20.7 beam
I will stay with the boat for a mouth

My first thinking was Naples city dock, close to Miami not to expensive
I want something close a city, not to remote
Also a place what it is easy to do some work, engine and sail
Something with a litle comunity of saillor

Do you have any suggestion
Philippe

Naples City Dock is NOT a marina, they offer dockage, mooring balls, fuel, and pump out.

On the west coast of Florida, marinas I'm aware of that can haul a beam wider than 20':

Gulf Marine Ways, Ft. Myers Beach
Bob & Annies, St. James City
Progressive Marine, St. Petersburg

Catamaran Boat Yard Key Largo... Cheap dockage and dry storage, haul out just about any cat, and I think they allow DIY... I would double check that with the owner Sam...

It's a working yard, they have dockage, and I think they also have rental apartments near by...

If you don't need to be at a dock you might want to rent a mooring ball in Marathon. They even have some workshop facilities you can rent space in ashore. Access to marine supplies is the best in the Keys.

Re: Help marina wanted in florida

The two marinas north of the hiway bridge in Ft Pierce might accomodate you. I like that area, like the little bar at Harbortown etc.... but it aint Miami if you are looking for that! Harbortown, might accomodate you at their big pier. The city marina is a little expensive by the day, but may have a month rate....

Factory Bay in Marco Island has a great anchorage, and a quick dink ride to Rose's Marina. There is a Cat Owner tied up to Rose's Marina on an outside dock. private message Rocketman, he knows that area very well.
