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
