Stockholm area winter docking

I heard through the grapevine that there are many permanent live aboards in Stockholm. I have recently crossed from the Caribbean & am currently on the South Coast. Ystad. Im looking for a marina or berth of any kind, in the Stockholm area where I will be tolerated as a single live aboard sailor, to spend the winter. Be nice to have other live aboards around. Boat is 50 Beneteau. 2,5m deep. I have a wood stove aboard for heat, but need electricity for batteries & exterior de icing if required. I do not mind squatting somewhere, but prefer to pay at a marina or even next to another vessel, as it keep things on the level.Any ideas or suggestions?

... if I am not mistaken I read while visiting Waxholm (Waxholms Gästhamn - Home) this year that they are offering places in the water in winter, incl. 'de icing with air bubbles'.

Regards,

Carsten

Re: Stockholm area winter docking

Are you an EU citizen? Do Schengen restrictions apply?

I'm not trying to be negative. We've considered spending next winter in Scandinavia, but ran into the 90 day restriction. Is there a way around this?

Re: Stockholm area winter docking

Waxholm is a charming summer-town outside Stockholm although it is a small town, very quiet in the winter. Other alternatives may be:
Wasahamnen - near the center of town - WasaHamnen - Index
Navis also close to the center - Navigationssällskapet > Djurgårdshamnen > Guest Marina
KSSS - Royal Swedish Yacht Club - offers ice free docking in Saltsjöbaden from where there are a comuter train to the city - KSSS Nyheter | Vinterplatser lediga i vattnet hos KSSS i Saltsjöbaden | KSSS - SEK 10.000 per one winter
Pampas marina also close to the center - Vinterförvaring

I hope translate.google will help you in your evaluation!

Re: Stockholm area winter docking

Pampas & Karlslund is full. Then Waxholm & a few others cannot accomodate 50ft. Seems most Gasthamnen are closed for the winter. Navis have not finalized their haulouts yet so cannot say. Slim chance there. Port of Stockholm referred me back to Pampas. Any other ideas? Djurgarden? Skeepsholmen? Alongside another vessel, ship tug or barge?

Re: Stockholm area winter docking

There are winter docking in Gothenburg, on the west coast of Sweden if you give up on Stockholm.I'm not sure of which marinas that offer this but I can check if you want me to.
