Need marina tips on the eastcoast

Try Old Bay Marina near Baltimore. I keep my C&C 35 there and they are always pulling Dutch, French, German, Polish, Etc, sailboats out and storing them on land. Much less expensive then the yards south of Baltimore. I think they charge $120 monthly to keep a large sailboat on the hard and that includes stands, but the haulout is $8.50 per foot round trip.

The marina owner speaks German and Dutch and his wife speaks Russian and Polish - Neat place in a blue collar community. They can fix or make anything - more of a boatyard than a marina. No pool, tennis courts or Starbucks - but the service is great and the lowest prices north of Annapolis.

Try Deltaville which is 50 mi. north of Norfolk and offers a number of yards with dry and wet storage, do-it-yourself friendly and skilled help available for FAR less than Annapolis. Suggest Shroeder Yacht Services as I have personally had good experiences there AND you will find other international cruisers there as you your work...Schroeder Yacht Systems - Full Service Yacht Repair & Maintenance
I have to vote with Cam on this one. You'll want to visit Annapolis while you're here, but its the last place I'd store a boat while I was out of the country.

Deltaville offers the most, for the least, of anywhere I am aware of on the bay. Figure at least 30%-50% less than Annapolis for slips. Land storage for my 36' is $4 ft/mo at Deltaville Boatyard which I'd also recommend you consider. I think land storage at Schroders is slightly less per month.

Schroders has done work for me in the past and I will likely use them again, but they really packed the boats in last year where it was hard to get to my boat. Deltaville boat yard was a bit more orderly in the way they arranged boats, so I hauled there this year. Deltaville yards offer services comparable to Annapolis for somewhat less money, but the real savings will be on slips and storage. Since you can basically choose to leave your boat anywhere on the bay, one of the yards in Deltaville is probably going to be your lowest cost option if you want your boat on the Chesapeake.

Good Luck.

PM if I can give you any more info on D'ville.

mgmhead Iggy,

I keep my boat at The Sailing Emporium in Rock Hall, MD and couldn't be more pleased. Plenty of places to visit. A very "social" marina with friendly folks and a nice family owned operation. I've never seen a marina on the Chesapeake that I would say is more attractive. You can work on your own boat, they either stock what you need or can easily get it for you. There's a West Marine in town and an ACE Hardware with a marine section. Additionally, there are several other marinas in town so getting supplies is seldom an issue.

Welcome to SailNet, send my a PM (private message) if I may be of further assistance.

chuck711 Skipper Bob has a inexpensive publication out on Marinas and Boat Yards.
It rates services and costs.
Its invaluable as well as his other pubs on anchoring spots. Available
on the net and most marinas along the ICW on the east coast.

Bardo What type of area are you interested in? If you like somewhat more quiet surroundings, but good access to the cities, then Solomons Island (35 miles south of Annapolis) might also suit. Many marinas there, some of which might suit. Calvert marina is a good possibility. Still only 1 hour to Washington DC and Annapolis, 1.5 hours to Baltimore, and 3 to Philadelphia. Good Luck!

hertfordnc If I were asking the same question of you, would I want to go to a big marina and meet a lot of other transient sailors or would I want to go to a little fishing village and meet some real Norwegians?

It's probably not the most "full service" Marina you'll find but I must recommend Taylors Island Marina on the Eastern Shore

As a Norwegian visiting this country you might enjoy interacting with the local waterman. They were friendly and helpful.

We were bringing my boat down form Rock Hall to North Carolina when we developed some problems and pulled into Taylors Island. A local oysterman helped us tremendously and we ended up at the Marina. The hauling ($300 out and back in) and ground storage of $125 per month was so attractive I decided to leave the boat there for the winter.

It's a little out of the way- 100 miles from Baltimore, but there is a West Marine store about 40 minutes away and a nice little town.


It’s under new management Call Robert at (410) 463-3748 if you’re interested and see if they can meet your needs.

dcarey Iggy,
Brewers is a good suggestion. Try Pilots Point in Westbrook, CT.. Good yard and a great location for driving to points along the east coast, Boston, NY, Washington, New England. Keep in touch, the guy we race with is also a car salesman... he's a sailor so he can't be all bad. Good luck. Enjoy your stay on our east coast.

chef2sail I forgot about Port Annapolis....also a good marina and essentially near Jabins so acccessability to many sailboat specialists in many areas.

I guess my point was really to stay in Annapolis as a jump off place to see things while working on the boat.

teshannon eryka,
That's a very nice marina! I've been there a few times and would recommend it over Burt Jabins.

which has all the amenities you listed, and you can live aboard while doing boat work.
