10' doors are sufficient for pretty much anything. Like stated above, better to go big now than be stuck with it later. If you have the room to put a 12' door in, do it for sure. Also go wide enough you can get something out around the boat if you need to. My old shop had a 9' wide 8' High door and my formula fits so tightly I cant even put it in with the cockpit cover poles installed, and I have to prop the garage door up past the header with a stick so the windshield clears.. Once it's in, I cant even squeeze a lawnmower out around it.

I'm installing doors in my new shop this weekend, 2 14'W 10.5' H and 2 10 x10. I wanted to go higher, but the I'm restoring an old barn, and that's the best I can do.

Dave - I'm glad your Donzi fits in a 9'er... That's one of the boats we have been seriously looking at and I was mildly concerned it would be tight with a 10'. Good to know.

food for thought,if you plan on heating your boat house,you might want to reconsider you ceiling height.10-12ft ceilings are $$$$$ to heat,,,,,unless you have a wood stove and alot of wood to burn,and frankly i am not crazy about buring wood in a boat house w/boats full of gas being storied.jus my 2cents.i have a 9ft door,w12ft ceilings,metal construction.i have no problems getting my 27 and 33ft fountain in through the door.

Im in that situation right now,
I have a 10' x 16' door on the 22' x 56' garage and I bought a new truck camper that does not fit by like 2".
So I am adding a 22' x 32' addition with a 12' door and 14'6" ceiling so i can install a 2 post lift in the future.
I would have built larger if it was not for regulations
