bestfriend South beach was very kind to me when I bought my boat there. They moved me around on the slips that were open while people did haulouts, trips, etc. We stayed for about six months until they ran out of options for us.

wakked1 It depends on the specific marina. Some only let you stay there for 12 months or so if you purchase a boat then they give it up to the next person on the waiting list. Tends to depend on how much demand there is.

That's lame. The port of Seattle makes you give up your slip if you sell your boat. The slip goes back in the pool and whoever is next on the waiting list gets it. Keeps it fair. I don't think anyone should be able to profit from a City owned marina. And what's with an LLC running a City owned property? Californians......

Price Premium for a Slip in San Francisco

Hello all, I'm currently looking at buying a boat and getting the current owner's slip at gas cove marina in San Francisco. I'm trying to price out the value of the slip, as the current offering price strikes me as too steep.
