Vermont Boat Storage
Dry dock, marinas and indoor boat storage
Storing your boat in a safe area can relieve a lot of stress for most boat owners. Covered storage offers additional protection from the sun and ultra-violet rays which can deteriorate boat finishes and canvas tops plus attack seats, woodwork and carpet. In this Vermont section of the site, we list boat storage facilities by location relative to major cities, lakes and area attractions for your convenience.

Consider weather and security implications when choosing local storage options. Extreme weather can damage fabrics and boat finishes over time. The need for security is a question one should consider as well. Covered and indoor boat storage is a good solution but may have height limitations which could eliminate some sailboats. Some Vermont indoor storage units may be too small for some pontoon boats, cruisers, cuddy cabin boats and other longer boats. Contact local storage facilities to confirm size limitations.

Boating insurance. Contact your boat insurance agent to make sure the policy is current and will cover the boat while it is in storage.
For those who do not own a boat, and prefer to avoid the costs of ownership, rental boats can be a cost effective option.
