St Pete Municipal vs Harborage vs?

Looking at moving to St Pete area. Thoughts / input on a liveaboard marina... and to add to the list Regatta Point, thought that would make it an actual daily commute into St Pete....

Any other places to look at? I am half tempted to look north towards Tarpon, i am used to longer commutes but really want to keep it down to 45 / 50 mins if I can.

Draft of 6'6"
Mast of 63'
Kiddo (Daughter) 11 yo. Currently home schooling, but may go back to brick
probably 1 car for a bit so easy to get to grocery etc

any other randomness that I am ignoring or forgetting.

hopefully I will keep this updated....

Getting into St Pete. Muni is not easy. We have been. waiting 6 months for a 33' slip. Not sure how long the wait is for larger slips. Depending on your time line there may not have a choice!

Re: St Pete Municipal vs Harborage vs?

Snore is correct, the wait list at the municipal marina is quite long. Harborage is adding new docks and will probably have space at some point soon. Xeon, when were you looking at moving to St. Pete? City marina and Harborage are the only two marinas in the area that allow liveaboards. Regatta Pointe is a nice liveaboard marina but the commute to St. Pete is 30-45 minutes.

Re: St Pete Municipal vs Harborage vs?

The more important question is what is the length. There are slips available depending on size. Also short term is transient dock. The 65 slips do have available slips as well as a few others. Also if listed as short term dock 5 has slips available It depends a lot on if live aboard longer term or passing cruiser. Getting into marina even as short term then transfer to live aboard slip works too. If you have kids would strongly recommend municipal marina over harborage. Pm for more details. Ps have a year at harborage now 7 at municipal.
