Wow, if that's in USD, that does seem excessive. In my corner of the world it would be:

60 foot boat x $11.00 pet foot = 660 per month x 12 months = $7920 per year.

Even if you add $139.00 per month for live aboard it's $1668 for the year. All together thats $9588.

Gunner, it looks like heading south might be in your future!!

South is in our plans. When family health issues are resolved we are out of here.

Florida is around $13/ft and up, plus hefty liveaboards fees, upwards of $250, plus electric. I know of one marina that charges a $50 environmental fee on top of their $250 liveaboard fee. Make sure you have deep pockets when you come to Florida, especially South Florida and the west coast, St Pete, Sarasota etc. And call ahead of time. I see Irwinsailor is 61 ft. Our 50 ft boat was around $1000/month plus electric. And that was on a 1 year lease at the Harborage Marina in St Pete. Twin Dolphin up the Manate River was around $1600/month inclusive of everything. Hold on to your wallets.

St Augustine

$839 per month for a 42'er at St. Augustine Municipal Marina. Excellent showers, across the road from downtown area, cable tv. Very noisy because they are rehabing The Bridge of Lyons for the next few years.

$600/month for a 40 ft monohull in Sausalito, CA. Water included, electricity billed. Typical electric bill is $10 to $15/month. This marina does not charge a liveaborad fee, but the total bill is comparable to others that do. A typical liveaboard fee in the bay area is $150/month.

Reading the above comments in this thread I am beginning to think that liveaboard dockfees are the one and only bargain in the San Francisco area!

Good Grief

Living aboard is cheap compared to living in an apartment in Boston.
probably more space too.

Seabrook Shipyards (Galvaston Bay) runs about $6-7 a slip foot plus $40 a month for liveaboard status.

this includes all the stuff you expect to have at a marina.

this may have changed since the last time I was there.

dockage rates

wow, yeah I agree. prices up here in the Great Lakes are pricey. Up north, like Door County, and upper Michigan area are very very high. Here in Green Bay, I pay $1,200 per sailing season for a dock space.
Can't imagine the cost of a bigger boat up north!

Just means another good reason to relocate south to warmer climates for better weather and less pricey dock rates! LOL

Down here you could pay a little more but it's a full year and you don't have to haul out in the winter. Jan - Mar isn't very good due to the cold water and temperature. Some folks still go out. We winterize in the water and haul and paint every other year.

If you go a lot farther south the rates climb back up and huricanes become more of a factor. farther north on the Bay the rates get high and slips harder to find.

Florida, ah yes, wonderful FL, land of lovebugs, humidity, taxes and insane marina dock fees. But for all that you at least get to be in Florida!

If they can't regulate you into committing suicide, they'll charge you into it. Oh, don't forget the suicide contemplation fee.....

San Diego - Sun Harbor Marina

We just got gouged into paying $750/month + metered electricity. The facility is very nice, and we're 43' LOA. Also, I totally agree that the attitude and marina tone is extremely important.

Cost in Turkey (Kemer Park marina) converts to US$310 per month for a 46 footer (or $4.40 per square metre - length x width).
Includes water, electricity, showers, laundrette, TV / lounge / library, private swim area, tennis courts, bar and restaurant access.

Don't think it's just USA, we are in Sydney Australia, and pay US$750 p/m for a 40' including electricity, liveaboard etc etc, technically not allowed to liveaboard but just be nice to people.

Puerto Rico

Newbie here, so hey!

In San Juan, Puerto Rico a 40 ft pays $580, plus they meter your electricity and charge you acordingly, not really a big worry, its not expensive (electricity) it includes water, and cable tv and internet is optional, top of the line Marina. I believe its very reasonable, In Fajardo (farther East) its less expensive. Live aboard is like everything, have a good relation with the Marina people and they do not care, take care of your boat and smile always.
