300,000 Reasons to Long-Term-Lease Your Slip

More than 300,000 new boats have been sold in the U.S. Each year since 2000. The number of new boat slips created is a tiny fraction of that amount. As demand for dockage grows – particularly at premium marinas – DOCKOMINIUM ownership is an attractive option to insure against rising slip rates and limited availability.

A dockominium is the water-based version of a condominium. Rather than owning an apartment in a building, the owner has the remainder of a 99-year lease of a boat slip in our marina. In addition to the exclusive right to use the boat slip, dockominium owners may use the common areas of the marina, much as one would have the right to use the common areas in a residential condominium development. The owner may occupy or rent the slip, or sell interest in the lease at any time.

The marina manages the common areas and provides all required services such as maintenance, security, insurance, administration, legal, brokerage and property management of the dockominium facility. Owners pay an annual fee to cover their share of those expenses.

Dockominium ownership assures that you’ll always have a place to keep your boat at one of New England’s premier marinas, free from worries over dockage rates and availability of slips.

Dockominiums at Kingman Yacht Center start at around $85,000. Slips suitable for a range of boat sizes are available. To learn more, email Heidi McManus, or call 508-563-7136.

  • A Pleasant Stay in a Gorgeous Harbor!

    7′ draft easy in/out of the channel, 10′ min depth at mid tide. The harbor has calm water with wind any direction and locals are respectful of no-wakes, even on the holiday weekend. The harbor/dock staff are competent and pleasant. We bought fuel but did not use shore facilities. The on-site restaurant had good food with beautiful harbor views. Did not give the marina 5 stars because the dinghy dock is seriously overcrowded. It’s way too small for the large number of moored boats using it and it’s a real hassle getting in and out. It’s also pretty unstable to walk on and quite exciting for two people to pass carrying provisions and gear. The only other issue we had was having to move to a different mooring as we did not have enough swing room for 55′ boat in N/NE wind. We woke up one morning to find the ball of the boat behind us under our swim deck. The Dockmaster was quick to help out though and moved another boat to accommodate us. Very professional. Overall a pleasant stay in a gorgeous harbor and we would definitely return.
