    If you own a small motor yacht and cruise to other locations. Slip ownership along with yacht club type membership. Is a pretty good deal. My parents club: "list of reciprocal clubs give access to private facilities throughout Canada and around the world. Accommodations at competitive rates are available in some reciprocal Clubs, including New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington, San Francisco, London (England)."

    Parents don't have a slip, just the membership. Most of these slips come with onshore club type facilities. Your 80 or so MY becomes a moving condo. The real advantage just like my parents yacht club membership, you can use other places facilities. Can also see how a sport boater does not have the same appeal.

    The link above gave some good info for sure. Are the property taxes on these as high as they are on all forms of real estate in FL?

    Prices are not as high in NJ as in Florida,I currently have my lift in a 30 ft slip told him I might be interested but I want a 40 ft slip so if I get the 38 Lightning I don't have to move my lift.He is talking 60-80 k might do it if it happens.Would cost me 50k for a dually to tow the 38 and I am spoiled with a lift.You will use the boat even if you just have 20 mins.Thanks for all the replies

    The monthly maintenence fee would cover Taxes, Insurance, Maintenence, Salaries for the employees, etc. This fee normally starts out on the low side. You can expect increases every year. That being said, I know of a dockominium in south Florida that has doubled in price in 4 years!
