In Pensacola property values are just starting a slow rise on waterfront properties after the fall in '08. There are many many locations of waterfront property on bayous and inland water ways that lead to Bay's and their entrance to the Gulf. Depends of course on the type of vessel and the needs of the boat and the owners. For example multihull drafts allow access to some waterfront property's around the Florida Panhandle that deep draft boats can forget about. The shallower draft bayou's tend to have lower waterfront priced properties. We chose this route, securing property for our own dock and slip.

Depends if you are wanting a marina experience as compared to your own place.
