I'd like to get some feedback on any good marinas
or yacht clubs around or convenient to Brooklyn
(Park Slope). Perhaps within an hours drive or near a train? This if not for a weekend trip, I'm looking for full season plus winter haul out
and dry storage
. I'd consider CT or NJ, but ideally i'd love to find a small old school brooklyn
I don't need a super fancy spot, just something safe and secure, a sense of community and parking. Good value (I have heard the LI sound gets nutty cash wise for a slip). I could do a mooring
or a slip, guess it depends on cost and possible launch service
Boat will be 28-35 foot, lets assume 5' draft
or thereabouts. I would be open to narrowing my search to something with a shoal draft
or a center board if someone knows of an amazing place that would require less draft. This will be our first sailboat in NY, and I'd like to have a marina in mind before I make a purchase
Just for interests sake, we are looking at the following: Pearson
10m or 323. Catalina 30
, or a Cal
or Triton. Something good for 4-5 person fun cruises to Martha's Vinyard and Nantucket
. Overnights in little coves with bar-b-q and some cold ones. A good old boat seems the right fit. I'm happy to hear any personal experience/recommendations with any of these models.
Thanks for any help!
