Just got a new boat? Had a boat for a while? We bet it was a pretty penny. If you just spent thousands on a boat, it makes sense to properly store it. Whether you just moved to Florida or are looking to move your boat, it’s a good idea to house it at a marina. Storing your boat in a marina reduces the stress in your life and makes owning a boat easier.

Florida Marina Clubs has marinas in Tampa and Key West. Each marina offers floating and fixed dock wet slips, as well as dry storage in wind-rated, state-of-the-art facilities. Our clubhouse amenities include restaurants, bars, pools and saunas, fitness centers, special events, wedding venue space and more.

Below, we wanted to share with you some benefits of keeping your boat stored at a marina.

  • Your boat is protected. Florida has the most boats stolen each year. Sadly, most boars are never found. Marinas offer 24/7 security to keep your boat safe.
  • Your boat is ready for you when you get to the marina. Call ahead and let the marina know you want to be on the water. They will get the water out on the water for you. All you have to do is drive down to the marina and hop in your boat! Now if you didn’t store at a marina, you’d have to haul your boat down on a trailer and bring it to a public ramp.
  • It can be cost-effective. Sure, there is a cost to storing a boat at a marina, but there is also a cost to have a trailer, driving the boat back and forth (gas money), maintenance on your car and trailer, etc.
  • When you’re not at a marina, you run the risk of getting in a motor vehicle accident on one of your trips. This could lead to injuries, damage, insurance claims and lawsuits. You don’t want to wreck your boat!
  • Storing at a marina allows you to be around other boat lovers and enthusiasts. It’s a great place to make friends and even learn how to better care for your boat.
  • When you store at a marina, your boat is already closer to the water (clearly), so you save a lot of time.

We hope reasons help with your decision on storing at a marina. A marina isn’t just a place to store your boat… it’s a community. There’s events, dining options, and more for you to be a part of!
