CaptainForce When looking for marinas where we plan to stay for some length of time, I always include to need to have some area for sailing near by. I notice that some of the places listed above don't offer this. There are some good opportunities to do some day sailing in the Indian River and the St. Lucie River, but locations like Vero Beach or New Smyrna, though very nice, don't offer this. You might want to check the charts if this amenity is high on your list. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Midnightflyer Hi, Thanks for posting the info, this is what we were looking for also. The plan is to sail from Lake Erie down the coast taking as long as it takes. Staying at different places for a week or two and moving on till we find THE PLACE to stay.

LauderBoy There's a Harbortown in Fort Pierce that's also very nice that I've lived at for over a year now.

Liveaboard Marinas in this area:

Harbortown Ft Pierce: 772-466-7300
Ft Pierce municipal: 772-464-1245
Loggerhead(Stuart): 772-692-4000
Cocoa Village: 321-635-8883
Melbourne: (321) 725-9054
Sunset Bay(Stuart): 772-283-9225
Titusville: The City of Titusville, Florida - Marina Homepage
Vero Beach: (772) 978-4960
Harbortown Merrit Island: 321-453-0160

There's also Halifax Harbor up in Daytona and Indiantown has cheap rates if you don't mind being a half day inland.

This is pretty much "in season" for Florida and from Stuart on down the marinas are likely all filled up with the snowbirds that bring their boats down. Harbortown Ft Pierce should have slips open and it's a pretty nice place. Very liveaboard friendly(we have monthly pot lucks), well protected and quiet. Publix, CVS and west marine are a 10 minute walk. Prices range from $10-15 a foot depending on the length of the lease and that seems to be pretty standard for this part of Florida. Liveaboard fees in areas tend to range $50-100 in addition to the per ft slip rate.

I've visited all of the above marinas in person and have their addresses. If you need any additional info just let me know.

198290 Hi, the wife and I are looking also but we are a little north in the Port Canaveral area. There is a nice place called Harbor Town on Merrit Island which is just west of the port. Its right next to the Sea Ray plant.

We are seeking recommendations for liveaboard sailboat friendly marinas in the Melbourne / Palm Bay, Florida area. Cannot afford the best but need something safe, secure, etc. for 37' sailboat.
