When I read your post I was skeptical so I checked a few east coast marinas rates. For example, Brewers Marinas own/operate quite a few and there is no mention of different rates for multihulls that I could find, just loa. Iím surprised but now Iím less skeptical.

Re: Mono vs Multi Hull (Marina Fees)

As has been mentioned, pricing varies with location. Here in Oz, where there are a LOT of cats, most marinas charge more for cat berthing. But the real issue is that in some areas the availability of multi hull berths is limited... at any price! A broker friend recently told me that he had customers for six new cats IF he could find berths for them... and he couldn't. This in the Moreton bay area.

All gist for the selection process mill!
