Fall/Winter liveaboard Marinas in Southeast Mass

Been sailing out of New Bedford for several years now and have a great mooring in New Bedford Harbor. I may be interested in locatiing a live-in marina for the late Fall and Winter seasons. Retireing in 2012 but I would like to stay in the Southeast Massachusetts area or perhaps RI. Any sugestions??

You might check out Pt. Judith. A friend winters there and claims it is ice-free.

Never sail closer to the wind in degrees than your age

The only place I can think of in the SE Mass area that might offer winter liveaboard slips would be Fairhaven Shipyard.

I'm at "Oyster house marina" in East Prov. and the winter rate here is flat rate of $700 for up to a 35-40' boat.

401-434-0400 is the number.

3 bars (w/ entertainment) and 2 restaurants within walking distance (1 of ea. at the marina building), The Comedy connection is 3/4 mile away. East Prov. Yacht Club is next door and rt 195 access is 2-5 mins away depending on east or west. Providence is 5 mins. In a 5 mile radius, you have lots of grocery stores, rests., shopping etc. and the local Asian and Pizza shops deliver right to the ramp.

The Wickford shipyard in Wickford, RI is a good one with a number of live aboards. Very protected, quiet, short walks to restaurants and groceries.
