A home on the bay for a larger boat

Hello all!

I'm running at whits end , and was hoping to find some assistance or recommendations here. We are looking for somewhere within reasonable commuting distance to the west side of Washington DC that would accept a larger sailboat as a live aboard. The boat in question is 65' LOA. So far it sounds like Herrington harbor is full, Solomons island is not interested, and the marinas in DC such as 'The Wharf' will do live aboard, but not for something that long... Moving to the area for work and would prefer to live aboard vice having to get an apartment. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Cheers,
A.R.

Re: A home on the bay for a larger boat

You don't mention your air draft. There are a couple of other marinas in DC that might work depending on your air draft.

In Annapolis, that size Jabins puts you on the floating docks and is likely prohibitively expensive. Port Annapolis may have something, but 65' is pushing it. Might be worth a call. It's about 50min to Arlington on average. Rush hour might be much worse.

You might check out Edgewater. There are a few marinas there that might have T's available.

There's Belmont Bay in Woodbridge, but they're usually pretty full too.

You're going to have to work the phones, unfortunately. Good luck!

Apologies, she draws 6.5' below water, and ~62' above. I appreciate the suggestions! I'll reach out to the marinas you mentioned to see if there is any wiggle room. As for working the phones, that's fine. If it were easy, it wouldn't be worth doing.

Cheers!

Hartge's Yacht Harbor in Galesville (south of Annapolis) has some liveaboards and some 70' slips and some long T-heads. Don't know availability. HYH is now owned by the Herrington people... so maybe they would have mentioned it...

Commute to the WEST side of DC probably wouldn't be great.
