You might try Harbortown Marina on the Barge Canal in Merritt Island. It's much cheaper than the port Canaveral marinas
and it has a lot of amenities like a swimming pool. They have Catamaran
slips but probably cannot handle a 60 footer. We looked at it for our 45 foot cat and that would be no problem. I think with livaboard fees
it was going to be about 7-800 a month. Getting to the ocean means a transit of the locks to Port Canaveral. The trip south from there is much easier than the ICW
. Some people will go due east across the gulf stream
from there, then head
south into the Abacos. You might loose 20 miles to the current
, but that beats 200 miles to Ft Lauderdale.
