Re: Marinas Requiring Standards for Liveaboard Vessels

I lived aboard in Dana Point for 8 years in the 90's and have kept my deposit in to be kept on the list. This is the 600 list others talk about. Just because there are 600 people on the list, does not mean we are truly waiting for a slip. We recently inquired about slips between Santa Barbra and San Diego and there are many that advertise limits on liveaboard slips, but a lot of the time if they find you are a person they want to keep around from the condition of your boat to even the car you park in the parking lot, they tend to make exceptions from looking away on quiet sneak aboards to giving you liveaboard status. The list in Dana Point has been around as long as the marina, what has changed is the costs and taxes. Your mileage may vary.

What you will find very different from the East Coast is most of the marinas have double fingers and concrete floating docks and larger bathrooms. This will spoil you in a hurry as well as the 300+ days of sailing weather per year in Southern California. Not having to have air conditioning on the boat in the summer is also a big difference or fending off the bugs, running aground is also much harder to do, etc...

Re: Marinas Requiring Standards for Liveaboard Vessels

In Asia, most new marinas are just part of large high density residential developments, where a marina will give added marketing value.

They don't want liveaboards with hanging laundry to spoil the image.

Superyachts are ok
