Moorage rates. How much do you pay?

I'm just curious what moorage rates around the country are like in comparison to Seattle, I pay:

$11.00 per foot, per month ($297 per month)

Plus a small electric bill based on use. To live aboard would coast an extra $100 per month. My rate is pretty typical for moorage on Lake Union in downtown Seattle and currently there is a shortage of slips, (I saw one ad from a guy willing to pay $1000 finders fee).

What's everyone else paying?

DrB will become famous soon enough
My mooring....

in Salem Harbor on Marblehead side (Marblehead, MA) costs me $133/year. In addition to that I pay $225/year for mooring tackle maintenance. I had to initially outlay $1200 (one time) to buy the tackle and have it installed.

I have no electricity (obviously). If I want to use the launch service (unlimited from 1 May to 31 Oct.) thats $600.

I have a 33 ft boat.

I have seen slip fees around here from $100 to $130/ft.

Annapolis will run you anywhere from $13 to $16/ft, based on an annual contract.

Rates drop the further you get away from Annapolis proper.

Some of you guys should be bragging - not complaining.

Try $133.00/ft x 36 ft slip = $4,824 into the waterhole each summer. Dry winter storage is another $45.00/ft x 36 = $1,620.00, includes haul-out and pressure wash (big deal!) Grand total = $6,444.00 annual rent.

I should have bought my slip for $30k, 10 years ago when I had the chance.

Do you mean moorage or slip fees? Big difference. Slip fees in Southeast Massachusetts run fron $85. to $150.00 per foot on a seasonal basis, usually May to October. 30 foot boat $2550.00-$4500.00 a season. Moorage rates run considerably less at $800.00 -$1200.00 a season usually regardless of length. l Like DrB I lease a spot in New Bedford for $100.00 a year and own my own mooring tackle. Other than the annual fee to the city I pay $50.00 to have the winter stick put in, another $50.00 to put the mooring ball back on in the Spring and every three years the mooring service pulls the mooring for a complete inspection for $300.00 plus whatever tackle needs replacement.

I'm assuming since he's charged electric, that the comparison is for marina slips.

Tell me about it. We all know boats and anything related are depreciating assets, so I didn't think the slip could actually go up in value - especially since the marina charges usage fees even for slip owners.

The bittersweet reality kicked in when the slip next to me went on the market for $94,000 . . . could have saved a ton of $$$.

Around $6/foot in S Texas for a nice marina and decent slip. Other fees apply, including a Liveaboard fee/person and elec. However, that isn't bad.

Around $17/foot, one year minimum contract, and LOTS of fees in Fort Myers area. This also usually includes a nice little waiting list. However, the Hurricanes are free.

PS SLips here (Ft. Myers) are running $250,000, plus monthly upkeep fees (what upkeep do you have on 4 poles sticking out of the water)??!??! Or you can drop a million or so on a house and keep it behind your house. It has been a really tough decision for me which way to go... I am thinking... TB, what is your Mastercard number???
