Low Cost Marinas (near West Palm Beach)

Does anyone have any recommendations of a low cost marina on the Atlantic side of Florida? Also, with haul out and local repair guys that are also reasonable.

I am looking at a boat in West Palm Beach. Apparently, they charge $2,000/month. I'm not in a hurry, so I don't mind moving the boat a distance for a reasonable marina/boat yard.

Re: Low Cost Marinas (near West Palm Beach)

I'm not aware of any "low cost" marinas near West Palm Beach. A ton of transient traffic, a lot of high end local boaters, and being a convenient departure point to the Bahamas keeps prices up.

The farther north you go from WPB, the cheaper it'll be. Go up to Jacksonville or further inland up the St Johns to Green Cove Springs and marina prices are extremely reasonable.

This time of year, cheap will mean chilly though. North of Daytona might as well be called South Georgia because the winter temps are much cooler than what people expect when they think of Florida Weather.
