Here's a silly question.

I live in the city in a rental apartment and I don't own a car. I'm on the market for a 27-30ft sailboat and they're sometimes sold with a trailer. What do I do with it? Local marinas are happy to store it in their yard for a fee but only if it's registered and insured. They'll use it for winter storage but there is no cost advantage.

Is there any value in keeping a trailer around?

Thank you all. I should have said New York City and I didn't mean trailer sailer. More stuff like J/30 and the alike or ULDBs. It's not very uncommon for them to have a trailer. It makes totally sense if you have a place to put it for cheap. The marinas here will store it on their yard for a fee ($350-$500 a season) but only as long as it's registered and insured. They'll happily use it for winter storage but will give no credit for it. Basically, keeping the trailer is at first glance just a cost factor with no immediate benefit... But maybe I'm missing something and hence my question.
