What Are You Paying per Foot per Month?

What are you paying per foot per month to berth your boat? Also, where are you paying for your berthing? It's not necessary to say the specific marina if you do not wish to. Listing a city or a general area would be helpful though.

$37.00 per foot (yes, that's not a typo) in South FL. Moving to a little bit less expensive marina in a couple of weeks.

Fairfiled County, CT: $135/ft for the season. Max season is Apr 1 to Oct 31, although most boats don't go in until it warms up. Say $20 to $40 /ft/month depending on how long your season is.

in sausalito, california a 50-foot slip goes for $800 per month. electrical service is not included in that, but we have a dock attendant who comes around and pumps out holding tanks once a week at no additional charge.

South Coast of England, Royal Navy pontoon mooring comes in at $4 a month but no electric or water. Security is quite good, man with big dog carries out foot patrols and armed mobile police patrol harbour. Posh marina next door with all facilities is $12 per foot.

Seasonal Docking Fee

Great South Bay, Long Island

Summer season April 15-Nov 15 $95/ft includes electric, water, wifi

Winter Hauling/Storage $42/ft - Requires power washing $200 additional

Can work on boat myself, but yard insists on bottom painting.

Cost is payable in 3 monthly installments for Winter Storage and 3 installments for Summer docking.

Marina next door has $110/foot for Summer + Winter combined, but they can't haul me!

Do you have to be a Royal Navy veteran to get that deal? That is unbelievable. I pay almost 11,000 squids per annum for a 54 foot berth (they graciously overlook my davits) on the Hamble, including electricity. That works out to about $25/foot/month.

That "fancy marina" at $12/foot/month sounds good too. Which is that? Maybe I'll move.

$9 /ft at Stock Island, Key West at a boatyard, not a marina
My kind of place. Million dollar boats give me wide berth.

My marina charges for the slip rather than by the foot, so I'm paying for a 40' slip.

On the plus side, it includes water & power at the slip, pump outs, spring launch & fall haul out, outdoor storage & access to all marina facilities (washrooms & pool).

We clock in at about $4.30/ft/month paid for the year in advance. Water and 15A electric included. And you can do all your own work.

$90/ft ($7.50 /ft/month) for 40 ft slip if you pay for the whole year. No discount if you haul out for winter and don't use slip. Deltavile, VA.

In Clearwater Fl (on the Gulf of Mex.) its about $10-12/ft, but what you get for that varies widely. Everything between just a slip, to live-aboards w/wifi, cable, and phone hookups with floating docks. There are also quite a few people that will let you park at their private docks, and pay them $200-$400/mo, most with power. As you go north, I have seen as low as $8/ft, but that is almost a whole hour away , and the price really goes up once your south of Tampa Bay (See Spammy's $37/ft above)
