Live aboard Ft Walton Beach, FL

Hello all,

I need a little help. I am shopping for a marina that will let me live aboard a 34-38' boat. The marinas I have called have space, but say do not allow live aboards. The last place I called said I would not find anyplace that would in the Florida Panhandle. Any help? Thanks.

Have you tried Bahia-Mar Marina in Pensacola? Also, you might try Island Cove Marina in P'cola as well.

Good Luck!

locomotive breath( next season solstice)

hi,
We are live aboards also, were heading up to st.louis for hurricane season
as we sail I,ll send you anything we find for the panhandle,I called Ft.Walton
awhile back the dockmaster said everything in ft.walton has not recovered
due to the last 2 seasons.Sometimes what we have done is find aplace an ask the limit time of a stay each port is different for instance 1 marina
will let you stay 2 weeks then you have to leave for say 4 days then you can come back, some will let you stay up to 2 months, they dont consider it
permanent. the only problem is the charge you as a transcient it can get exspensive.Were docked at carabelle heading north,they have monthly liveaboards but you would have to sign a year lease its 598. a month
plus eletric they also have wifi internet ,cable ,showers, pool,grocery store
laundry resteraunts near by walking distance but,their starting to sell
the slips so I dont know how long it will be this way. Good Luck!

Re: live aboard

Hi, Try Guiseppies Wharf in Niceville. There is also one right next to it that has showers but i believe they have a waiting list. The owner of Guseppies (not sure of the spelling) also owns the restaurant in Fort Walton. Good luck

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.

Panhandle live aboard

Try Seville Marina in Pensacola. Great facilities in the old historical district, with two fabulous restaurants in the marina.

traveling inland

Hi! I currently live-aboard seasonally on Barkley Lake(Cumberland River). I've seen several posts about moving to St. Louis for hurricane season. I would definitely recommend staying in the Barkley and Kentucky Lakes area versus going UP the Mississippi River to St. Louis & St.Charles. If you don't have to go up the mighty Mississippi, DON'T!
