Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

Hi Janice,


We've been making similar enquiries, though for the east coast of Florida and the St John's River looked like being our best bet from enquiries online and the people we've spoken to (Google 'Green Cove Springs Marina'). Wrong side I know, but would Sailacious fit through that Obi Wan Kenobi Canal?

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

THANKS - Prices are great for both Indiantown ($6.50 per foot / per month) and Green Cove Springs ($4.50 pf/pm). There seam to be several near Belle Glade. Now I have to check my mast height to see if we fit under the bridge

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

On the gulf side your best bet is glades boat storage. Great folks out there. Watch out using Indian town, I used them once,never again, cost me thousands.

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

I don't know what you draw but I use Charlote Harbor a Boat storage and am satisfied. If you draw much. 6' your going to have a rough time of it though. No vertical limits.

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

Indiantown is out - Mast is 56' and we won't fit under the bridge. Our draft is just under 6' so we'll check on Charlotte harbor. Where is glades? keep the ideas coming.

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

You should make Indiantown from the east, but won't make glades from the west. I have made glades with 55.5' heeling on lowest tide of the spring. Good luck!

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

We have been storing our boat on the east coast of FL for the past 4 years. We looked at a lot of places and compared prices and service.

Most charge for the haul out, pressure wash, blocking, stands, power, you can't work on your boat in the storage yard and on and on. Be sure to ask how much each additional service is, how the vessel is secured for a hurricane, is it on sand ? What are ground anchors attached to ? Is the yard secure ? I don't know if any of that is a consideration for you or not.

We have been using the Hinckley Yard in Stuart (Manatee Pocket) and been very pleased with the service and price. No bridges coming in. Very secure, high and dry yard, tie downs anchored to concrete beams in the ground, 110v power to run a dehumidifier, monthly boat checks with emailed pictures and checklist.

They have a prepay package price that includes everything for 6 months, haul out, pressure wash, blocking, power, checks etc. When we compared it to places like Indiantown with the additional services Hinckley's included the price was very close. We found everything at Indiantown was an additional charge.
You can not live aboard while in the Stuart Yard.

Good luck, Bob

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

I used to store my boat at Indiantown. As stated previously, from the east, the bridge is not an issue. Less salt water and salt air issues there.

I also stored a boat for a while at port canaveral. One benefit of that was regular shuttle service to and from the Orlando Airport because of all the cruise ships. I've also used the nearby Harbourtown Marina.

I've been to Green Cove Springs a few times, but have not stored there. It has a reputation for being inexpensive.

Re: Haul out and Storage in Florida

There are plenty of yards. The crunch is what you're willing to pay. Some sound cheap but hit you with everything including surcharges on outside contractors and stipulations that you have to buy bottom paint etc. from them. Most of them are online and show the fee scale. Not mentioned so far are Riverside in Ft Pierce, Tiger Point in Fernandina Beach and St. Marys in St. Marys.

Green Cove Springs is by far the cheapest and cruiser friendly without a lot of surcharges but the facilities leave a bit to be desired.
