San Diego Area Slips

I know just the other day I was talking about Florida and a T37 but now it seems I may be headed to San Diego instead. I wont know for a month or so.

How easy is it to get a slip in the San Diego area and what do the cost for a 37?

Thanks,

Mitch

PS Both live aboard and not.

San Diego Marinas

Hi Mitch, Obviously things change at marinas regularly, but I just went through the game. Get the list of marinas from Sailors Choice <www.sailorschoice.com/sd/sdmarinas.htm> and start calling now to get on waiting lists.

Chula Vista Marina will likely be the only liveaboard available unless National City opens up. Its a bit out of the way, but very friendly. The others are pretty pricey. Sun Harbor may have something.

You may find a temporary mooring ball by contacting San Diego Mooring <http://www.sandiegomooring.com/>

Lotsa fun!

Chula Vista had available moorings in your size range last time I checked. As did Harbor Island (can't remember the name of the exact marina). HI was about 40% more expensive but allows you to use your boat as a down town weekend condo and is 40+ minutes closer to the open ocean (Chula Vista marina is hidden down a long and fairly narrow channel).

Might want to check out the brand new marina at National City too.

Personally I'm in CV and I like it. There are people around me who have done and are about to do intereting things with their boats, from restoration projects to extended world cruising. Helps keep me inspired.

I am slipped on Harbor Island in San Diego. I am paying $530 a month for a 40 foot slip.
My marina allows live aboards, but there is a long wait list, and it is an extra $300 a month per person or something like that.

I do not live aboard...but when I fly out from Colorado and stay for a week or a long weekend, they do not mind at all, and I do not have to pay extra. My fee also includes a gated parking spot, which is nice.

I hear that there are slips a little cheaper in Chula Vista. And there is almost always temporary mooring balls if you do not mind dancing around a lot.

Hi Colorado Dreamer. I'm totally new to the boating world and looking to liveaboard in Harbor Island or any place near SD airport. Do you know if there's a separate list for liveaboards applications? Would just applying for a slip be a bit shorter to wait?

Re: San Diego Area Slips

Slips in San Diego range from around $12 to $40 per foot per month, plus electric, plus around $200 per month if you intend to live aboard. A lot of marinas have waitlists, but it's not hard to find an open slip.

Generally, the better the location on the bay, the more expensive the marina is.

Which marina on Harbor Island is that, if you don't mind me asking? Cortez?

You might have to wait awhile for a response, since they have not been on line since 2009.

My boat is currently docked in Marina Cortez, we have a 32 foot sailboat, and we are paying ~$475 per month.
