Hello all!

My wife and I are thinking of moving to S. Carolina, specifically the Blufton area. We currently have a 20' bowrider (other brand) but the plan is to move up to a 30-34' Sea Ray in a year or so. I know there are plenty of boat ramps down in the Blufton/HH Island area as well as a couple of dry stack storage places. That works for our current boat. But when we upgrade...

So my question is how is the availability of wet slips in the Savannah to Beaufort areas? I know up here the waiting list can be a year or so, and that's fine. The prices seem to run higher down south, but only because you can "Boat year round!"

Thanks in advance.
I can’t help you much in that area, but marina’s in the Charleston area are pretty full. There are some available depending on boat size, wet vs dry slips…..I know slips in Jacksonville,FL are getting difficult to come by so the Bluffton to Savannah area may be difficult as well. Wet slips for smaller boats may be difficult as most people rack store smaller boats.

I did notice a 2003 340 Sundancer for sale in HHI if you are ready to move up. I looked at it last year in Shelter Cove marina. Not sure if it sold, but it has been cleaned up and re-listed at a higher price, but it may be a decent boat if the seller is negotiable.

I would recommend making some calls.

Good luck with your move.
Things are pretty full here in the low country but you can usually get a slip in Skull Creek Marina. My marina in Port Royal has a waiting list. A buddy just got into Beaufort City Marina after a short wait. Palmetto Bay marina is expanding right now and is a great fit for that size boat, and in a fun location.
