Re: storage in mexico?

There is a small yard on Isla Mujeres at Puerto Isla Mujeres Resort and Marina. I think the monthly rate is about $20 per foot per month.
I have seen shrimp boats on the hard at Progreso, but don't know any details.

Man!...At those prices, it might be cheaper to ship it home.

Re: storage in mexico?

Why would you pay those prices when you can store your boat in Florida for $3.60/foot/month? Florida is in the general vicinity. Let me know if you want details.

Re: storage in mexico?

Just to give a comparison. A 35ft. boat stored in Guaymas, up in the Sea of Cortez, is $110 @ month. There are negatives with it as it is hotter than the ninges of hell 2 months out of the year but with proper care, covers and humidifying, it should be ok.

I think Jimmy is looking for boat storage in the Gulf of Mexico.

Re: storage in mexico?

Ya, I know that but I was just using it as a reference as to the difference in pricing.

Re: storage in mexico?

Thanks for the replies, It's an over choice situation for me. I would prefer to keep it somewhere in the states. I don't like Florida's use tax. Perhaps the gulf in Texas. My original post was designed to research reasonable storage facilities near the areas I'm planning on sailing to. I live in Chicago now but I'm planning on living aboard in two years or less either the Med or the Caribbean but will return to Chi to make a buck or two during the summer months. Thanks again and safe sailing!

Re: storage in mexico?

The post on Isla Mujeras is correct. I'm not sure why it's so much... We were there a few weeks ago, looking at marinas.

Re: storage in mexico?

Green cove springs in FL is about as cheap as it gets. Don't see why you would have to pay any tax if you just showed up and hauled. Why pay use tax if your not using it .

anyone know what the FL gov position on this is?

also how vulnerable are boats from storms etc when stored "on the hard" I'm assuming come hurricane etc they are going to get dinged up just as bad or am I wrong?

Re: storage in mexico?

It's only a few days sailing down to the Rio Dulce from Isla Mujeres. There, you can find wet storage and dry storage. Wet rates can be low depending on your stay, $150-$250. Dry storage was $275 a few weeks ago.
