looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

Hey all! We're closing on our house sale in Feb and moving aboard full time down here in Texas! FINALLY!

But in May, we're sailing to Maryland to get away from the hurricane season.

Problem is my experience on the Chesapeake (where I grew up) was on smaller boats with shallower drafts than our Tayana 37.

So we are looking for a marina (and boatyard, actually) that can handle a 6 ft. draft in the Maryland / Baltimore area. Cost is secondary to needs, but it sure would be nice to find a reasonable rate as well. We'll be there until Oct / Nov before sailing to Bermuda and then the Carribean for the winter.

Anybody in the area know a place? Thanks!

Re: looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

In Baltimore harbor, you have Henderson’s Wharf (#1) and Harborview (#2) and Oasis Marina at lighthouse point (#3), the Anchorage has supposedly stopped accepting liveabords, but people seem to flirt with the rules. In the harbor 20+’ so no depth problems, but also no yards. After that you are further out and will need a car.

Thanks! Do you have any suggestions as to yards? We might need a haul out while there.

I believe at the Anchorage you would be considered transient, and live aboard restrictions would not apply.

No yard recommendations, my goto was Tidewater, it shut down recently. I have been searching as I am overdue for a haul out.

Re: looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

On the western side of the Bay, you might consider Maryland Marina on Middle River. The previous owner of my boat kept it there. He had only good things to say about them. My marina, Worton Creek Marina has gained a great reputation as a full-service boatyard.

I can't speak about the live-aboard situation at Maryland Marina. I do know it's allowed at Worton Creek.

Congratulations! Herrington Harbour (North or South) is wonderful with 7' MLW. There are located south of Annapolis but great value for the amenities offered.

Re: looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

Be careful of the slips in Baltimore Harbour, I haven't been there in two years but we normally go for a long weekend every year since there is plenty to do, but the Sugar factory is there so in the mornings we would have a very light coating of sticky substance,it does wash off and doesn't stop us from going , also there tends to be a lot of drift wood so always keep an open eye as you do any place, if coming in at night be sure to use your AIS those big container vessels leave at dark and you really can't see them as you approach the harbor...get the user's guide for the Chesapeake there are a lot of places you can go and find a boat yard and slip, we found we have to get a year's slip even though we are only there a few months of the year and go south each fall. Look at Craig's list you might be able to find a homeowner with a slip at their waterline that they will rent for the summer. The further away from Annapolis the cheaper rates are.

Re: looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

In Maryland I would recommend Port Annapolis Marina in Annapolis. Great liveaboard amenities and close to shopping. Good haul out yard that allows owner to work on boat. Your draft would not be a problem. I lived aboard there for 3 years. JMHO

Well, IMO Port Annapolis has gotten pretty pricy and I would only let their yard work on my boat if I were going to stand about and continuously look over their shoulder. I've had bad experiences there.

Re: looking for a liveaboard slip in Maryland deep enough for our boat

White Rocks Marina is good place to haul out and do your own work or hire your own folk to do work. I have names of several individuals who handle bottom work and paint and other things. I also may have a spare slip at my waterfront home and/or a neighbor who does where you could stay on your boat. I can be reached at: (301) 693-3524
