Hi all,

I am just curious what it would cost to be in typical marinas for berthing - assuming you were cruising and passing through, not signing on for a 3 month stay. I assume you pay by the foot and likely pay a variant more if you have a catamaran?

If so, what would you pay to be at something like a Sydney/Hobart/Perth marina vs something like a Bahamas/Bermuda/BVI marina vs something in Italy/Turkey/Malta?

Just curious if there would be huge variations and what roughly the costs might be.

Regards

Duck,

Hop onto Google and in ten to fifteen minutes you'll have an answer similar to the one I got when I did....

BVI $1.50 or so /ft/day
Bermuda $3.00 or so /ft/day
Oz AUD 40-100 / day and up depending...

As a general rule a good anchor and chain rode will pay for themselves in no time. Don't leave home without one...of each.

Bermuda, owie!

Your google skills are much better than mine. I spent 15-20 minutes looking for rates in Hobart and found all kinds of info but no specific rates.

Thanks

But are those rates for a cat like he was talking about it will probably add a little bit on but no idea how much

Cat's don't alway add extra, end of a T etc.. some places beam just doesn't matter.

More often than not though it does.

Like my avatar, I recommend a skinny cat with a nice mustache and shades.

Rates are all over the lot. In US East Coast from $1 a foot to $4+ in upscale areas. Same in Bahamas...same range.
Down island tends to be under $2 but some upscale resorts are higher to keep out the riff raff!

Are there places in the Bahamas that you can pull up and fill up with water for free or is there charges for that there? The thought of carrying alot of water in a dinghy doesn't sound very fun. The thought of paying $4 a night even less fun.

I had a couple in a converted small old tug drop their hook about 150 feet from where I'm docked for a couple days last week . Looked pretty inviting to me . Truth is....if moorings were available here ...cheap as my dock if ( 100 bucks a month ) I'd be on a mooring .

Hi, I am in Sydney now and in Sydney you have some options however it is very crowded and the price is not the only consideration; one would be how close to town do you need to be, the other is are you living aboard while there an extra fee for that. Also with a cat finding a nice spot could be harder then say a mono (space is at a premium). Once you know that there are three large body’s of water that wrap around Sydney( Pittwater, Sydney harbor and botany bay) and all have some form of moorage you can go from there, however Queensland is much friendlier to yachties then NSW in my experience and seem to be more understanding to live a boards.
With a cat you could find Pittwater very nice. Sydney city is not very nice for an extended stay, in my opinion and Botany Bay is not set up to cater to yachts. Now the price$$$$$ I have a 44 foot mono and it runs me $960 per month but that could be cause I'm American. Lololol best of luck
