liveaboard marina in St. Petersburg

Just to clarify, the Harborage is limited to a few liveaboard slips if the boat is on annual contract. There is no restriction on boat crews living aboard should the boat be registered at the daily/weekly ''visitor'' rate, which is also true of the other marinas.

Facilities are indeed at least one notch above the Municipal Marina as the Harborage offers floating docks (tho'' the tidal range is only 2-3''). But they charge accordingly. There are also some amenities (pool, cabana/deli). However, the Harborage is not close to downtown unless the free bus is used and the downtown area offers a range of ''amenities'', even including a huge Olympic pool, numerous museums and numerous parks. By contrast, the Harborage and next door neighbor, the Dali Museum, are somewhat remote from the downtown scene.

In general, there are usually no ''visitor berthing'' waiting lists at any of the 3 marinas in the downtown area. But the costs will cover quite a spread: Vinoy, Harborage, Muncipal in descending order.
