Need a better marina in South Florida

Need a better marina in South Florida

Postby lizfll » Tue Mar 11, 2008 2:44 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm currently based out of Palm Beach Yacht Center in Boynton Beach, FL but they're hitting me with a height fee that is ridiculous!! (I'm only 8 inches above the 8 foot limit!!) Does anyone know any other out-of-water marinas that won't slap me with a height fee?

Right now my marina payment is WAY more than what I'm paying for the boat! LOL :shock:

Maybe a dumb suggestion but what if put down the Bimini before you leave. Are you still too tall?

Yes, unfortunately, this little 2465 is actually 8'8" to the highest point on the boat (even with bimini down). She doesn't LOOK that tall, but apparently she is! I almost had trouble getting through a bridge on the ICW this weekend too (had to take off the bimini and very CAREFULLY and slowly go through!)

That's just one of those things I did not think about before buying this boat. Lesson learned. But for now, I just need to find a marina that won't hit me with the height fee. :-)

Have you checked Loggerhead marina, just down the road----take federal north, pass lantanna, then when federal makes a Y with dixie, go to the right side and in about 40 feet you will come to the Loggerhead Marina. I think you would like them much better than Palm beach yacht center.

We love Loggerhead. We're in St. Petersburg and have a 50 ft. covered slip. We did have a 40 ft. racked slip inside the barn that cost us about 670 per month. I believe their website give the price for all of their marinas.
