And I was complaining about$ $7.75per foot/month plus power. At those rates I would be priced completely out of sailing. Sometimes I think that is the whole idea. Keep us riff raff out of sight unless we are "staff" and then we must always be sure we know our place...........m

USD7.50 per month. For the whole Boat But I do have to pay for my own chains (last cost USD1500 for a whole set and for boatyard to lay) and it's only a summer use mooring and tidal......errrr and not in a Marina.

Winter (and working) I am on boatyard mooring - been a couple of years now, still waiting for a bill The Old Man pays around USD150 pa so I figure something similiar..........

Me Mate is in a Marina here and pays around USD12 per foot per month.......for me that would be an annual bill of USD4400 - by my calcs that would be enuf to take me up to the year 2058 where I currently am , albeit including replacement mooring chains only 2021 .

I pay $7.31 a foot, for 51' of boat in a 50' in a non-live aboard slip, across the bay from Tacoma WA. I have double 30 amp shore power cables and electrical power is extra. It's month to month in a very nice Puyallup tribal marina.

... for an 18' wide slip. No agreement required. Ah, the joy of shallow draft.

20 miles south of Annapolis.

$13.46 per foot, paid monthly.

This includes water and electricity, and liveaboard. Pretty expensive for the Seattle area, but liveaboard slips are a commodity.

It was advertised as a 27' slip, but after much shuffling of boats from slip to slip, my 26 barely fits, distance between finger piers is only 18 feet or so, not the usual 22

Oh, and the mooring buoy, that's even cheaper than anchoring! $0

That "fancy marina" at $12/foot/month sounds good too. Which is that? Maybe I'll move.
Sadly you need to have served in one of the 3 services and be a member of the service sailing association to be eligible for one of these moorings. There is a waiting list which has increased during the past couple of years as folk look to reduce costs.

The $12 is based on an annual mooring of £4k for us (31 feet) and an exchange rate of £1 to $1.5, plus the assumption of a deal for paying up front, say 10%. Certainly there has been deals to be done during the past 2 winters for a 6 month mooring and Haslar still looked empty last week.

We bought our Moody from Swanwick and they wanted to quote us for our first year. Knowing what was coming I put a brave face on when they wanted £5200 for 2008, but it wasn't affordable and we moved after a free month c/o the previous owner. There is also some serious building work going to happen at Swanwick in the near future.

Whilst I wouldn't have a problem getting 31 feet in and out of the lock at Port Solent, 54 feet could be a bit of a pain especially on Sunday afternoons as everyone heads home. Clarence Marina might be worth a look though. Also Gosport Marina again Premier, or Haslar Marina.

Finally tucked behind Gosport Marina is an old fashioned boatyard which we have lifted out before because the do half price bank holiday specials involving a lift out on Friday and back in on Tuesday, but its a closely guarded secret for locals in the know

For anyone who can take the gound for part of the tide there are some really cheap moorings:

Just remember when someone asks your boats length at the club bar, the reply should be framed truthfully in feet, whilst implying metres

It is acceptable to wear a worn out reefer jacket in a yacht club but it should be made from barathea. Gieves should have something suitable for you. I believe paid hands wear brass buttons on a private yacht, owners wear dark.

Zero $ per month, but I get whacked with property taxes.

My mates pay $75.00 a year for a mooring off of Oban Scotland.I was paying $300.00 a year for a drying out mooring,that was a PITA,best deal in a marina is $400.00 for the season april to october,that was for your boat on its trailer next to the ramp.

Wonder what the most expensive marina charges?

Think its between one of the Poole harbour marinas and Hamble Point, PBO did a survey a while back and the amounts being charged were eye watering. Something like £7500 for us at 31 feet. A quick google suggests they don't even provide the charges on line so you have to enquire.

I am in canada with a 6 month boating season.

I pay 3170.00 for 6 months for a 58 footer. Or $9.10 per month per foot, which seems to be the most popular range but I am not sure if most are paying this range for 6 months or a year.

In other words, a marina operating year round would make twice the annual revenue than the one operating only 6 months which to me means that the one operating 6 months has to charge more to make the same money.

Brett
Cleveland Ohio ........same seasonal details as above but price is $105/ft for a "year"

Add another $40/ft for haul out and storage over winter.

I pay $3450 for a 34fter (but my slip could go as long as 48). Includes power and water.

Mine's , same as LtBrett $135/ft for 6 mo/summer.
Lt, are you at MBW?

The real killer is the winter storage and service.
