Living on a mooring.. could be interesting

Kent Narrows does have a couple of options

Hi Denise. As you start your cost research you want to look at the facilities with a critical eye to heads, parking, length of finger piers and your neighbors.

Piney Narrows Yacht Haven does have (clean, lockable) single heads that give you privacy, AC and heat year around. There are dedicated parking spaces so you can count on what distance you will travel to get to and from your vessel. Trash pick up/safety/staffing/good lighting/cable TV/fuel/pump out/local services, shopping/direct highway in and out via car/ good protection from storms/good sailing grounds help to ensure you find time aboard a joy.

I think you will find many places that you can swing for around your $5,000 goal. Your edge is the length of your vessel. When you get up to the 40 foot and longer slips, the prices will be more.

If you explore Piney Narrows, feel free to say I sent you. We left there for a refit for our boat and are still awaiting it to be completed. Can't wait to go back.

Merry Christmas!!

I'm currently spending under $2,000 a year for a 27 Catalina, and that includes winter storage. The boat is at the head of the bay in Perryville, MD.

Good Luck,

30 feet should make that an easy budget target. Even my amenity-laden marina in Annapolis is $5,150 / year for a 30-footer. Amenities include clubhouse, cafe, gym, pool, ... - Welcome to PortAnnapolis Marina

If I had to spend that much just to dock my boat on the Bay, I wouldn't have one.

We pay $1680 per year at Olverson's (Olverson's Lodge Creek Marina) which I consider to be one of the gems of the Chesapeake. It's a true boater's yard - not fancy, but clean, well maintained, and with all the amenities. There is asuch a dedicated following, that people pass their slips to their kids. Fred Olverson is a boater, spending 6 mos a year onboard Freddy Bear and the ICW.

Buzzards Point (Buzzard's Point Marina) is cheaper at $1200. Less amenities, but quiet and at the gateway to some of the best sailing on the Bay. We spent 10 years there, leaving only to accommodate our 6 year old with a pool, etc at Olverson's.

On the Eastern Shore, check out Somers Cove Marina (Somers Cove Marina) in Crisfield. It's a very large, well run marina, with ALL the amenities. For a 30' boat the yearly fee would be $1620.

If you are interested in the Northern Neck, there are others. Basically, the closer to Annapolis that you go, the more expensive that it is. Middle Bay is much more laid back and rural feeling.

Be VERY careful when considering keeping a boat in Virginia ... as many of the counties impose draconian 'personal property taxes' on boats that are kept there. Can be as high as 4+% PER YEAR of the boat's value - generally the closer to DC the higher the PPT and there will/may be a PPT on your automobile as well.

It is true that VA imposes Personal Property rates. However, the rates are not nearly as bad as some might think. We keep Victoria in Northumberland Co. The rate is $3.60 at a 40% assessment which for us is $540. Some counties use 100% assessment. IMO, the benefits of lower slip rental cost and relaxed atmosphere outweigh the higher slip rental cost of many parts of MD. But.....MD's one-time tax of 5% (of the fair market value) is pretty steep, but overall cheaper.

Regardless, it is easy to stay well under $5000 for slip rental.
