Re: Live aboard marina east central Florida?

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.
