Summer Storage

Summer at Harborside Marina

Harborside Marina offers a few different options for summer storage. Boats can be kept in water at a slip or on the rack or cradle for quick launch, each offers different benefits to suit your needs. Keeping your boat in a slip is perfect for boaters who plan to be on the water several times a week. But if you are not a fan of bottom paint or just want to keep your boat out of the water, quick launch might be right for you. Boats are stored on our racks, or in a cradle and with a quick phone call one hour before you arrive we will ensure your boat is in the water ready to go! Then upon returning the boat will be hauled, rinsed down and put back on the rack or cradle. Trailer storage is also available for the summer season. When winter times rolls around you can keep your boat at Harborside. We will shrink wrap it, winterize it and keep it onsite ready for spring!



Please take the time to complete the contract and return it with your deposit to secure your spot for the coming year. As you all know, we have not raised our rates in over 10 years! Once again this year, we are holding our winter rates and our summer rates for our customers that store year round with us. This is our way of saying thank you for your business, especially in the offseason. As always, we have limited slip space and many times a waiting list. Our tenured clients get first preference, but we will need to hear from you by February 1st or we will assume you are giving up your spot. In the past, I have let this deadline slide which I am no longer able to do. In an effort to make it fair for all our customers, we need to hold to our deadlines.

If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.
