Florida North Eastern Coast - Cruiser Friendly Marina?

Ahoy mates; Looking for a tip for a cruiser friendly marina northeast coast of Florida. Sailing offshore from Charleston, SC.. would like to find a marina that is NOT too expensive and has a boatyard for a haul out for a 50' sloop. Everything we have visited since leaving Stamford, Conn.. has been VERY expensive.
Thanks, Kurt

Tiger Point Marina, 904 277 2720 Fernandina Beach. Excellent deep water approach at St. Marys River entrance.

a bit further down but a real working yard is westland marina in titusville. you can do all your own work including bottom job. it's located alongside the city of titusville marina and shares the same entrance channel. right on the icw.

St. Augustine, FL has a couple of places that will pull your vessel, St. Augustine Marine, Oasis Marine, and Comachee Harbor. The prices and DIY will vary. All the yards are fenced.

AFAIK St. Augustine Marine no longer allows DIY and they are quite pricey!

ortega yacht club marina (oycm.com) on the st. johns river is a nice place to visit with grocery and marine stores nearby. you can get hauled next door (sadlerpoint.com).

Our homeport is St Augustine, we have hauled out at both Oasis & St Augustine Marine. Last Jan 2009 we were at St Aug Marine doing our own bottom paint job. Oasis is known for the do it yourself, but sometimes their haulout schedule is backed up, and you have to wait, but their dockage is reasonable. Friends we met crusing were also very satisfied with the Green Cove marina/yard. We're on our wayback down to St Augustine off shore from Beaufort NC the end of this week NOV 6th.

Try the boat yard in St Mary's GA. It is just above the FL border and is quite reasonable and is a do it your self yard. Lots of cruisers use it for off season stotage.

Not really, you have to go down to Port Canaveral and across to the ICW and then up to Titusville. I forget the distance . Another way would be to come in at Ponce Inlet (just south of Daytona) and then it's about 50 miles on the ICW to Titusville. The municipal marina in Titusville would be a nice spot to leave the boat if you want to leave it in the water. The folks there are very cruiser friendly.
