Liveaboard Fees Baltimore Area

My marina charges a flat-rate of $2,400 per year for a slip and one liveaboard ($40 monthly extra for two people to cover extra trash pick-up and hot water at the showers)

Pretty cheap living if you ask me!

"for a slip"

Should we assume that's for your 35'er? Or, flat rate for whatever size slip is needed?

What kind of draft can you put in there? That's an absolute steal compared to most.

Liveaboard details Baltimore area

Hello - Hello Sailor!

The big slips (for 35 to 50 boats) at my marina go for only $1,975 for the year. This is a good deal because the docks are well-made, the dock water pressure is good, the electric never suffers from voltage drop, and I can be out in the Bay sailing as soon as I untie from the dock. For some strange reason, maybe because liveaboards are always around and using water and carrying trash bags to the trash containers and have a car taking up space the rates for all liveaboards are $2,400 per year!

The marina is limited to a 6 draft. They have a couple of boats with 7 draft but they never go out much and when we have a blowout low tide they go into the mud. The bottom is soft mud so the boats never heel over -they just sit upright until the tide comes back. If your draft is 6 or less you will be happy.

I also like that the marina is only 7 minutes from 695 the Baltimore Beltway. I can take the Key Bridge and be in Columbia in 30 minutes or DC in 60 minutes. Downtown Baltimore is only a 20 minute drive and BWI airport 25 minutes.

When I was in Bodkin Creek the drive in rush hour traffic just to get to the freeway was a nightmare.
