Yeah... like Kittery Maine. A resident waits something like 10-20 years for a mooring. A non-resident has an 80 year wait!

Kai, Here in Tierra Verde, FL just south of St. Petersburg the rates are $10.50 per foot plus $150.00 for us liveaboards. The 150 includes water, electricity, garbage, pool, hot tub, laudry and showers. Not a bad deal for Florida. I am 15 min from the Gulf with no bridges.

I'm at Marina del Sol on Clear Lake, TX for the summer while I fit out, and then explore the Texas Coast. Cost me $1200 and some change for 6 months, paid up front. Decent ammenties, quiet, and not run by Nazis.

I think availability might be an issue (as well as price) anywhere along the East Coast. In response to the rising demand, there are a few marinas that are adding docks and occassionally a new marina surfaces. The current world wide real estate situation (read = debacle) is driving the cart in Florida as well as along the East Coast. Rates are not too bad in North Carolina, but availability is something else. This availability issue is new to the Carolina area and as recent as last year was not a problem. It would seem that there is something of a demographic shift to this area from both Florida and the Northeast. Oh well..........Rates for a 31 foot boat are still around $200 a month plus electricity and any liveaboard fees. Those California rates seem pretty good!

I think it's a 30 foot minimum, and it is not a liveaboard BUT they have a common dual 110 outlet you can plug into for working, etc, and a water line. Not permanently connected, but available.

I am currently in a rather basic berth in a small marina. It has power and water, but that is pretty much it for facilities. It is costing me AUD$50 per week (US$37.50) for my 40' yacht. This equates to US$0.13 per foot per day.

I am on the waiting list for a berth at the yacht club at which I am a member. This is a much better marina, with showers, toilet & laundry facilities, bar, etc. Once I get in there, it will be $US0.09 per foot per day.

Doesn't $37.50 a week USD /7 days = around $5.35 per day in USD? Or are your rates per month?

You are correct. $US37.50 / week = $US5.35 per day or $US160.00 per month (assuming 30 days). The figure I quoted was price per foot per day (my boat is 40' long).

The berth to which I will be moving will cost $US3.75 per day, or $US112.50 per month.

A little tidbit I picked up this weekend, Seward Ak. Waiting list for slips is 5 years. Still working on the fees. Whittier Ak. Waiting list is 11 years. Seward has transient slips, and good services. Whittier, well, it's closer to Anchorage...

They are both ice free harbors as well. Before Seward added slips, they only had a 3 year waiting list....go figure.

Here's a great add to this thread. I was talking with a couple of marinas in the area I'm doing business this summer and here are the rates:

$175 per foot for the summer (22' min)
or
$(inquire with us - priced by the slip) = 40' min

or... if you want the real cheap one....

$140/ft, 50' min!

I store my boat on its trailer in a yard right on the water. Very secure for $ 1.75 per foot per month. A total of $ 54 per month just north of Ft Myers, Fl. This is a storage boat yard and not a marina, no slips.

$175.00 per foot for the summer?!? 3 or 4 months? Even at 6 months that is $166 per month for a 40 footer! OUCH!
Yep, Seward is mostly ice free. It gets some thin ice in the winter, and lots of engine clogging jelly fish in the summer.
A 37' trimaran would be a little inconvenient to trailer sail. Plus, I have lived aboard on the hard for a long period of time before. No thanks. But then, I do not have to deal with ice and snow in the winter

We are in the St Pete Municipal Marina for $220/month for our 28 foot boat. Electricity is extra, I have a meter just like the house, and we don't keep the boat plugged in, so I think it is $5 or $10 just to maintain the account per month. Live aboards are $135/month additional. THe slip fees have gone up 6-10%/year since we got in there in 2002. The marina couldn't be any better situated, I can sail all year long in Tampa Bay, plus I have free parking for downtown St Pete. There is also a great community of liveaboards and other boaters, which may be typical of all marinas.

I live about 45-60 minutes north, and have thought about bringing the boat up to be closer. I don't because having our not-new-boat-but-paid-off-boat there is like having a condo in downtown St Pete for $250 a month when you add up all the fees, and having the bottom done monthly. That and marina prices go up as you look north (I have not looked south for slips), I think the other places I called in New Port Richey and Clearwater were closer to $400/month. In any of those places, going sailing would involve some combination of motoring out to the Gulf in little channels and bridges for 45 minutes before you reached open water. Depending on the wind I set sail typically before I am out of the harbor basin, and frequently sail all the way into my slip.

There is a 3 year wait to get a slip in the Municipal Marina, longer for cats. We only got in because the slips are transferable to new owners.
