9000. ? Mine is 65,000.

The Intracoastal is a major highway. You would be like a scooter with tractor trailer trucks going by you.

Funny, it is working for me righ now.

There are page arrows near the top! You have to click those to click through the pages of the ads.

I guess Miami is probably as if not more pricey. We have a few pilots that make the drive from palm beach...
OK, well, first I would suggest checking the ads in that link I posted for you.

I am seeing some which are asking $10 a foot, and others for $600 a month, one for $250 a month...... Look around that listing of ads! There are some widely varying rates!

NEGOTIATE! It's OK.

Just try to stay out of the Intracoastal directly.

I have been onboard some boats there, and it is amusing watching the owners having to stretch to keep the microwave and the TV and whatever else wasn't tied down from falling..... so these people learned to stretch their arms and legs in both directions, while balancing themselves for 30 degree heeling.... :-)
I had my boat there...

Royal Palm Yacht Basin
629 NE 3rd Street, Dania FL 33004 Marina/Boatyard

Located on Dania Cutoff Canal with access to ICW, Port Everglades.
Phone: (954) 923-5900
Royal Palm Yacht Basin Located one mile from the Intracoastal Waterway on the Dania Cutoff Canal, south of Port Everglades. The entrance into the canal is at ICW Marker 35. The marina has 11 feet of water in the canal and 7 feet of water in the protected basin. The docks are stationary with tie-off pilings and finger piers. Slips are available for yachts to 60'. The marine personnel monitor channel 78 and are on duty Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

..had no such probs as you apparently described. Location is right off Rt 1 and probably no more then an half hour from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport.

Re: Need Ft Lauderdale Marina Recommendation

Well, it all depends on what / where you want to be near for your commute?

Because the highway: (95 going N / S) is jammed between Ft. Lauderdale and those neighboring communities.

We also rented a slip in Delray, the Delray City Marina / which was excellent, and further North in Jupiter, until my wife was about to commit suicide from 3 hour commutes to Ft. Lauderdale.

If you look at a map, you can see that there are fairly long distances between ocean access points North of Fort Lauderdale. You would want to take that into account if your want to be North of Ft. L.

So, you really want to consider the commute first, in order to determine where you would want to be.

If you will be reporting to somewhere in Fort L., then you really want to have your home / boat in Fort L.

Re: Need Ft Lauderdale Marina Recommendation

Thanks Doug... Looking into that now...

Any cost benefit (with recommendations) to going North (Pompano, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Delray, Boynton etc)? or Miami to the South? Forgive my ignorance, not real familiar with the area at all... Google Maps!
