Have Boat Will Travel

By Jeff Lichtenstein

Many times I have clients either out of state, or out of PB County, that have boats who want to live in Jupiter or Juno Beach. Most desire homes with docks, but then sticker shock kicks in and they go to Plan B… buying a home, then renting a boat slip at a local marina. You would think it would be easy to find, but the ratio of boat slips to residents in the northern Palm Beaches is probably less than 1 out of 100.

If the vessel is 40’ or less, the job is a bit easier, but if you get a client with a 45’er, your selection dwindles. Boat length, width, tower height, and draft (the depth when boat is submerged in water) are all variables. An agent better have it right, because if they don’t, you’ve got problems.

My latest client from Ocala, 3 hours north of Jupiter, is just that client. When we first spoke last year, they were unsure about the boat length, as they had not made a final selection. Then the decision came down last month. A custom 45’ SeaHunter with a 16’ beam (width), 4½’ draft, with a 14-foot tower was their new baby. Now I had my hands full!

Each marina has different specs, depths, and availability for each type and size of vessel. Tireless research went into finding the right home/marina combination. Below you will see a “Marina Analysis” I have prepared and tailored for my clients and their new sport fisher.

If you’ve got a boat and want to live in the northern Palm Beaches, let me know if I can do one for you.
