Slip Rates

Hey there gang
A friend of mine is thinking about leaving his boat in the capable hands of yours truly and I'm having the darnedest time finding good slip fees in Annapolis.
It's an S2 7.9 meter sailboat (retractable keel).

What would be a reasonable yearly lease?

Most places charge either by the foot/month or foot/season. Up here in New England, the slip prices for a six-month season run about $85-130 / foot. So a 26' sailboat would be about $2,210-3,380.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Annapolis is pretty expensive. Down in Solomons slips go for about $95 a foot, and Annapolis proper is definitely more than that. There are a few marinas in the middle that may be slightly cheaper, though not by a whole lot (you may be looking at the lower end of what sailingdog mentioned), however those would be marinas with VERY basic amenities and long way to open water.

In general, get as far away from Annapolis as comfortably feasible. When I bought my boat there 4 years ago, I was charged $300/mo (flat rate, not by the ft) until I moved it. I'm sure someone will have an accurate $ value. As you move south, the price drops dramatically. Go to the lower tidal Potomac and its $140/mo (flat rate). Go further south to Reedville and it's $100/mo (flat rate).

Someone should plot the monthly rate as a function of the distance from Annapolis. I expect that it would resemble an "L".

Keep an eye out for people advertising extra slips at their houses in the Annapolis region. Calling brokers and asking around might work. We got a slip for $200/month last year at a person's house.

I wish I was kidding... a mooring here is $900 or so for the season... a marina slip is $85-130 / foot for the six-month season. That doesn't include the electricity, which is usually an additional charge... or haul outs and launches.

I know of a privately owned slip on deep creek (Magothy river, 10 minute drive from down town) that can fit your boat. Yearly it would run about 1500. PM me if interested.

It is not mine, I have no financial interest.

Our marina on the Potomac is twenty five miles from the Chesapeake, and our monthly rates is 120.00 or 1440.00 per year and that includes electricity, water, bathrooms and pump out facilities. That's a flat rate, not based on footage. We go elsewhere for haul outs, etc.
We're located on Monroe Bay, in Colonial Beach.

Chuckles private slip for 1500.00 sounds like great deal, especially that close to Annapolis

Holly Crap!! is right on!

I sure hope that kind of pricing doesn't spread south. Prices are on the rise down here but, GEZZ! Although, with the continuation of vanishing dockage here in Florida, it's a com'in!

Chuckles, private dockage, never really thought about that one for a big boat...I did rent a small slip for a CD Typhoon privately a while back w/o amenities...although I haven't found my 'real' boat yet, good idea. Thanks.
