In our travels we have found some nice marinas
that made a point of welcoming catamarans. We enjoy patronizing these when we are in the area. I will offer up a couple we like and am hoping for recommendations for other places.
So far we have yet to pay a dockage premium versus a monohull
. Maybe we have been lucky.
I have not included places were a catamaran
can tie onto a mooring
ball. We do a lot of mooring
balls when traveling Long Island Sound
and places north. In this thread Iets focus on marinas
providing quality catamaran dock
space and either good on-site facilities or excellent access to local activities.
In no particular order...
VIRGINIA: Cape Charles Yacht Center in Cape Charles Virginia. Great access to the town and area distractions. Looks like great catamaran haulout capabilities, which we have yet to try. This is a favorite last stop before leaving the Chesapeake for the open ocean.
Yacht Basin on the Sassafras River in Maryland
. This is a favorite reprovision and rest stop before heading down the Chesapeake or going north via CD Canal/Delaware Bay/New Jersey coast. Courtesy car.
: Yachting Solutions Boat
Basin, Rockland Maine
. All side tie dockage so no width problem. The crew did an excellent job squeezing us into a just right size slot. Very nice facilities here, top shelf. Courtesy car for easy reprovisioning. Walk to downtown.
MAINE: Rockland municipal marina, Rockland Maine. Plenty of slips wide enough for a catamaran. Good basic facilities. Immediately next to Yachting Solutions. Great access to downtown Rockland.
