Hey there - I'll start living aboard in April and have been looking for a reasonable marinas on the NC SC coast, with reasonable access to the sailing areas so you don't have to motor for hours.
I know I'm asking for much but I'm trying to avoid $700 plus a month for a 43 footer.
All advise appreciated - Mark

NC,- New Bern, Oriental, Belhaven, "Little" Washington, Edenton...
SC,- Beaufort, Charleston, Georgetown...I'm sure there's more, but these are some favorites of ours, Charleston is likely the most expensive of these. There are a couple resonable places up Broad Creek on Hilton Head Island too. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

I think the only marina around Washington, NC permitting liveaboards in McCotters Marina. There's a couple different liveaboards on my dock. The fees seem very reasonable.

Pretty good sailing here as well. You can be out of Broad Creek and into the Pamlico River in 10 - 15 minutes.

Best of luck.

http://www.portsidemarina.com/marinaservices.htmhttp://www.spoonerscreek.com/I don't think anywhere other than Charleston in SC is decent for sailing a 43 foot boat.Since Charleston appears to be too pricey, the above are all in North Carolina centered around the Oriental and Beaufort areas which are both excellent for sailing. Don't know how any of these feel about liveaboards or if they have room. All should be much less expensive base rate as 10-12 bucks a foot is typical around here on an annual rate. There may be additional fees for electric and/or live-aboard if permitted.
