Re: maine mooring/dock fees

The OP said 'annual fees' so I assume this means a season of dockage, not transient.

I don't know of a Portsmouth, ME but I do know a little about Portsmouth, NH.

When I was looking at the start of last season (Spring 2012) for space for my 25' keel boat, Great Bay Marine wanted about $1,200 for a mooring. That's a good price, but they are 7 miles from the mouth of the river. I found a slip on the ocean side of both lift bridges (I forget exactly where) for $3,000. That was too much for me.

I ended up paying more than the GBM price for my mooring at Great Cove Boat Club, but I am 3 miles closer to the ocean (still north of both bridges) and they have a great facility.

I found myself wishing there were real estate brokers for slips and moorings. It can be very difficult to find even a few choices; you never feel like you saw even 10% of what must be available.
