Boat Dock Slip Rental – Pricing Your Dock

Boat Dock Slip Rental

Boat dock slip rental is based primarily on Location Location Location … the biggest factor in setting the rent for your your dock. Like any other rental the biggest factor is location. What other attractions and benefits are located in your area? If your dock is located in a prime area where boaters would love to park, you can charge more. And of course, size does matter.

Some factors that affect a dock’s rental value include:

  1. Is the dock close to access to the Ocean?
  2. Attractions in the area, such as restaurants, fuel, beach, etc;
  3. Off street parking?
  4. Proximity to popular boating spots like the K-Cove, Byram’s Cove, Tice’s Cove, etc;
  5. Amenities? What “extras” can you provide: Outside shower, lighting, parking, security, hose spicket?
  6. What are local Marinas charging in your area? We’d suggest pricing at about ½ the cost of a local Marina unless you can provide attractive amenities.
  7. What is the size of your dock, and is it easy to get in and out?
  8. Hours of use?

Payment will be made right into your account via the site, so sit back and collect your cash.

Photos Help Sell Your dock Rental

Most importantly, photos and videos sell! Be sure to upload photos & 30 second video clips. This is optional but it really increases bookings and value. Include both the dock and the surrounding area and attractions.

Max is not always the best. Like any other rental, it is nice to collect a high rent, but it is more important to land the “right” tenant. We suggest pricing lower to attract many offers, and be selective for the best fit. A few extra bucks won’t outweigh the pain of dealing with an undesirable tenant. So take your time and select the “right” match.
