Basic Ownership Costs NE

Lets talk some on basic ownership costs not counting maintenance (as that varies sooo much). So how much are you all paying to just be able to use your boat (slips or mooring, haul out and storage, etc). I would be most interested in expeirence for those that live in Northeast.

Add cost of insurance + annual running costs which depend on sail or power, how many days used, numbers on board to be fed and watered etc. etc.

DefJef is getting some decent deals, I think. Good for him.

One thing you aren't addressing is that the cost of mooring/haul/docking or watever you do at a marina seems to at least square with the LOA of the boat.

In other words, you'll pay quite a bit more the longer your boat is.

Yes I expect the cost to go up with LOA. Looking for a collection of actual $ numbers.

Don, the best (most accurate) thing to do would be to find out what LOA boat you are looking at and call the marina you plan to deal with.

Boston will be more than East Greenwich, RI, etc...

All prices at marinas are quoted in $ per ft LOA. Taking a poll of people's costs, who own boats from 28ft to 60ft, all over the northeast will yield little usable data because much of it will not apply to your personal situaiton.

Hope that helps...

Sure, why not?

Haul outs: $800 a pop
Winter in-water storage: $2000+ depending on marina
Summer on the hook: Gratis

Insurance, fuel, tipping dockhands, dinghy fuel, etc.... really do add up.

Maine

Here's our raw basic cost in Maine for a 36 foot sloop.

Town annual mooring Fee $250.00
Yacht Club Fee $1200.00
Winter Storage $2200.00 (haul, launch pressure wash, mast storage)
Shrink Wrap $775.00
Insurance $1070.00
Yearly Mooring Service $225.00

Minimum Cost $5720.00

If we left it on the mooring in front of our house, where the tide goes out a ways, instead of the Yacht Club, we'd save $1200.00..
