Re: Yacht Hardstand Victoria BC

Yup...not too shabby. The whole island pretty nice but having grown up and lived here for almost 50 years, one becomes a bit bias.

Re: Yacht Hardstand Victoria BC

Thanks everyone.

Sounds good. I have only found the hardstand costs for one haulout (canoecove if my memory serves me well) on the internet at $1.70 per foot per day. That's $45 per day for a 30footer which is extreme by NZ standards and NZ is not a cheap place to live. Is this common? Auckland has 1.5+ million people and we pay between $10 and $20 per day for hardstands in the city centre..
I agree that Victoria looks beautiful, hence I intend to spend some time there and explore area on an old boat (my favorite pass time).

Thanks

Re: Yacht Hardstand Victoria BC

Sounds about right ... that's per day but you do not pay on the haul or splash day. Did you look at the haul costs ???? Don't forget to add the power wash costs (mandatory). Better be sitting down when you look that up
Of course it doesn't matter at this time because their travel lift is all bent out of shape. Westport is the nearest but costs are similar. They might be full up right now though because of the Canoe Cove mishap. All this is likely irrelevant if you are not looking for an immediat haul.

Compared to Vancouver the daily rate is pretty high. The yard I use charges &25/day. The big cost is the lift: $159 each way.

It's all supply and demand.

Here are there rates. They are compairable with all the other yards nearby.
We get hosed on a lot of things on the island.

Re: Yacht Hardstand Victoria BC

Yeah, wow thats really steep! You would think the yards in smaller populations would cost less. The further you get from Auckland CBD the less the daily cost. Relation to land value.
Maybe a little Vancouver Island price fixing going on here.... haha, I have no idea on the other side of the planet.
But hey, a few hundred dollars difference isn't going to deter me from wasting more money on sailboats

Where do you haul Schockt? Wounded Knee? (as they call it on SA).

It's more the cost of a big chunk of city waterfront than supply & demand as well. What must the property taxes be on a few acres of North Shore waterfront?

I usually use Lynnwood, because it is the most convenient, and these days is pretty well run. At least there I get a paved surface to work on instead of in the dirt and mud.
