Re: [Amel] Looking for Marina in Florida


I looked at a bunch of marinas in Georgia this summer as possible places to leave KRISTY next year.  Isle of Hope Marina, Lady's Island Marina, and Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles were my top three picks.

I left my SM 2000 "MAIA" 293 in the care of the excellent late Ray Eaton
who was the Amel technical expert in Florida from December 2002 to April
2005. He found a safe berth for me in a canal at the foot of someone's
yard at a very economic price. It was up one of the rivers in Fort
Lauderdale which required passing through a few lifting bridges but was
very safe and easy to access. Of course he was looking after the boat so
it was visited regularly. Since Ray passed away I don't know if there is
anyone filling the support role in Florida. Maybe Joel Potter could
respond if a similar arrangement can be made now. (Thanks Joel!). The
arrangement I made through Ray was hugely less expensive than the Marinas
in Fort Lauderdale. I am not sure whether he had access to shore power to
keep the batteries charged or used some other method. The draft and mast
measurements are very close to the same with the 54 so that wouldn't
present a problem.
Good luck

I have am AMEL 54 which is presently in Annapolis, MD. I will be taking it
south for the winter around the first of December. I am looking for a good
marina that has reasonable rates, close to airport and can accommodate
7'draft and 75' mast clearance to get to, secure and protected. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciate as I looked at marina's in Ft.
Lauderdale only to find them very, very expensive for a 3 to 4 month stay.
I would also be receptive to marina's along the Atlantic coast from
Charleston, SC to Florida.
Thank you,
