Live Aboard in Washington D.C.
I am looking for either a Marina in Northern Virginia that allows Liveaboards or looking for people who have a liveaboard boat for sale with a Live Aboard Status in the Gangplank Marina in Washington D.C.. If there is some place that has posting of boats for sale with the status please Let me know! I am really interested in Living aboard! Thanks.

Liveaboard at Gangplank Marina DC
Jade, I now have a liveaboard boat for sale at Gangplank. I have been hired back to a landlocked life in Charlottesville and must give up my boat in DC. If you'd like info, check the DC craiglist under boats. Here's my current ad:

Otherwise, just contact me directly.

Best of luck,

Ewww... it's a powerboat...

Sure, no sails....but waterfront property in D.C. for 50k? Sweet.

Jade, I'm looking too. The Gangplank appears to be the only liveaboard marina near the city, and I imagine the waitlist is years long. Any other ideas? Annapolis would be easy, but the commute to Rockville would be a nightmare.

Alexandria has a marina, and there's a new National Harbor project going in near Fort Washington, MD, which is supposed to have some marina berths. Both might be worth checking out.

Depends on your priorities -- the commute's tough, but the plus side of Annapolis is that you're 5 minutes from the Bay to go sailing. In DC you are hours up the Potomac. Baltimore is interesting, less expensive, but again you have to motor downriver for an hour before you get to open water.

Well there are approximately seventy boats on the Gangplank waitlist right now... something like four years' worth according to the dockmaster. The Alexadria city marina is short-term only, no liveaboards. Belle Haven does not appear to allow liveaboards. If I'm really serious about this (and time will tell), changing jobs looks like the best way to get closer to the water.

There are several places to live aboard in the Chesapeake bay. Annapolis is a tough commute, but look at Deale MD. There are a couple of nice Marina's there.

I'm also moving up to the DC area from Norfolk soon.I'll be working in Alexandria near the Pentagon, and would love to find a marina that allows liveaboards nearby. Anyone have any ideas, military bases are an option.
