I'm seeing about $2700 in Maine vs. about $1500 in central NJ for a 36' sailboat.
Yikes. I'm staying in VA. We paid $931 for haul, pressure wash, spring launch, and a tank of diesel for mid-Nov to May storage in the ultimate DIY yard.

Oh yes, the closer to NYC the higher the price. Try to rationalize $62\ft! Got stuck with a winter storage after purchase last year. Brutal compared to the upper Chesapeake.

The cost for my 35' sailboat this winter in Mystic, CT,is $1655, with the mast up. That includes haul, pressure wash, storage with stands, and launch. They also allow DIY.

Bend over and get ready - here it comes! Don't you just love being screwed because the boat yard owners feel you are a wealthy boat owner and will pay anything they demand? Get out the KY for boaters.

Re: Maine expensive winter storage

Don't know if it is simply greed. Boatyards in our area are in the high rent district. If they don't make enough on boat activities, they are in danger of being replaced with waterfront condo development. Don't forget that they are subject to regulations that are costly, like recovering the gray water from pressure washing, and highly restrictive rules on maintenance dredging. The compliance costs are not only in specialized infrastructure, but also in the paperwork for permits. The paperwork alone can be very expensive when engineering studies are required, which is often the case.

I know our yard had to construct a temporary spoils storage area just to dredge their travelift slip. They are also in line for a copay (with other nearby marinas) when the state dredges their access channel this fall.

Bottom line: I don't think my storage charges are out of line and I certainly don't think my marina is out to screw us.

If you want to go all the way up the coast .... Moose Island Marina .... very reasonable for on the hard storage. Good people .... can do most of your own work.... paying less than 150 per month for 60' vessel

Maine expensive winter storage

I've found Maine storage and mooring to be much less than anything in Rhode Island

Once owned a boat is a touchable dream. It can be worked on and endlessly improved, the messin' about tactile foreplay to voyages in the mind.
