Marinas in Upper Chesapeake East Side

Anyone have any idea how much it would cost me to keep a 30 foot sailboat in a slip on the Northern Chesapeake, Rock Hall or points north?

Check out Worton Creek: Worton Creek Marina - Rate Sheets
Fairlee Creek: Rates - Mears Great Oak Landing Marina

About $3200 for May - mid-Oct. Then you have to find winter storage.....

Wow - I'm staying in Mid-Bay. We pay $140/month for the year ($1680/yr) at Olverson's Marina and $875 for winter storage at Lewisetta Marina. Total is $2555

For the marinas on the Upper Eastern Shore, Id suggest that you 'negotiate' as they are only about 70% 'full', and at the 'more higher priced' marinas are at even 'less full' capacity so therefore you would have even more bargaining power. :-)

Rock Hall has some nice marinas, and is a great location as a"jump off" point for Bay cruising imo - You have the Chester River, the Eastern Bay, and Annapolis all within striking distance for day sails.

Getting there by land is a hassle though..

Way up in North East, Md you can' beat Bay Boat Works. A very nice marina, great folks run the place, folks on the slips and moorings are a nice group of people. It is clean, convenient, and any services you may need are nearby.
Mooring my 28 was about $1200, I joined Hances Point Y C otherwise I'd still be at Bay Boat Works.

Hi Advocate,

I'll put in a good word for Green Point Landing Marina on Worton Creek. Great staff, nice low key atmosphere. If you want a slip, the ones closer to the marina office are less susceptible to wave action in a NW wind, but most of the slips and all of the moorings are very well protected by the point across the channel from the marina.

Check out the marinas in Georgetown. A bit farther from the bay but so much to do on the river, especially if you have kids. Just google them. Some have rates on their sites, some you have to call. Here are the marinas in the area.

Sassafras Harbor

Marina in Upper Bay

We keep our 35' Beneteau in Sailing Emporium for $5,400 per year. This includes winter storage and full use of all amenities during the season. Not cheap, but worth it for the beautiful surroundings, pristine clean shower rooms (even the women are impressed), relaxing pool, adirondac chairs on the western facing sunset deck (with G & Ts) and friendly fellow boaters. Can you find cheaper? Probably, but you won't find better. If you want to dance you have to pay the piper. Daysail to Baltimore inner harbor, Annapolis, St. Michaels or Tilghman Island.
