Looking for Chesapeake Bay Live Aboard Marinas
 
Any suggestions on live aboard Marinas within a reasonable commute (reasonable being 45 min. or less) from either Columbia, MD or Lexington Park, MD. I may need to decide between two different job offers. I have been given some ideas from another site but I am collecting as much information as I can. Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks, Judy

Lexington Park means Solomons or the St Mary's City area. I'm not sure about liveaboard space there, although I believe there are places.

For Columbia it will be a commute at the extreme end of your criteria from Annapolis, the Magothy River, or Baltimore. In Baltimore talk to Baltimore Marine Center or the Anchorage. In the Magothy talk to Magothy Marina. In Annapolis, try Eastport Yacht Center, Port Annapolis, Annapolis Landing Marina, and Jabins Yacht Yard.

Thanks for the information. I will deal with the extreme commute if the money is better in Columbia. Living in Virginia now, did a long commute on 95 for years! I can deal with it again with some nice music for the ride and knowing that when I arrive home I'll be on the water :) I'm really shooting for Lexington though.

We have liveaboards at the Maryland Yacht Club on Rock Creek outside of Baltimore. Less than 30 minutes to comolbia with not a bad drive (Route 100) as far as traffic.

PM me if you want more info

Thanks Dave! It sounds perfect! I'd rather avoid a bad commute if I can. I'll see what the offers are and then decide from there.

Looks like the link is for "manhattan" sailing club.

Zahnisers in Solomons has liveaboards (and for living aboard they are a great marina)

Looking for a Live Aboard Marina
 
This time next year we will be looking for a Marina on the Eastern Shore. . .I will have to drive to Denton every day to take our grand daughter to school. If I don't have to drive 404 that would be great!We will have a 44 ft sailboat. . .if any one has any info please let us know....

Judy,

You could also try the Baltimore Yacht Basin. It would probably be the easiest commute to Columbia. Right off I-95. It is live aboard friendly and affordable, but the marina itself is an acquired taste (as is much of Baltimore).

If you're going to lexington park, your best bet is one of the marinas in Solomon's Islands. Have stayed at Zahnisers and it's great with a good reastaurant and I know they have live-aboards not sure about Spring Cove but it's really nice. You might also try our marina (Herrington Harbour South) but its further away and expensive.
If you're gonna be in Columbia check out the Magothy River especially Magothy marina . It's an easy shot down route 100. I live in Baltimore and I would advise against keeping a boat on the Patapsco if you can possibly avoid it especially anywhere in Baltimore harbor. Lived on our boat in Anchorage marina for 4 months while our Baltimore townhouse was being build and the water was so filthy as to make us sick just to look at it. Plus it's a long way out to the bay dodging cargo ships along the way.
The Magothy is much nicer. I lived in Severna Park for 20 years in a waterfront house at the far end of the Magothy and it took us less than an hour from our dock to the Bay. The Magothy is also a lot cleaner and quieter than the Patapsco.
Annapolis is great but marina space there is big bucks. Even more than our marina
If you need any more info feel free to PM me

Funny you mention that, this past weekend we spent the night on the boat at the public docks in the Inner Harbor...I was stunned when I could see my rudder, prop and most of the keel in the water! :eek: WTH
