Types of Boat Storage
Purchasing a boat is a huge investment. To keep it in excellent condition for years to come requires maintenance, and ensuring it is stored properly when it is not being used. To truly protect your boat from the elements, pests, extreme weather, and other harms, you should consider a storage facility rather than leaving your boat in the backyard or driveway.
Indoor Boat Storage
Depending on the size of your boat, you may be able to house it in an indoor storage unit. Indoor storage units offer extra protection from the elements along with extra peace of mind that it is safe. Leaving your boat outdoors can be hard on the hull, motor and other systems within your boat. This is especially true if you live in areas of the country that experience weather extremes.
Boats stored indoors tend to operate better and last longer. While storing your boat indoors is more pricey than storing it indoors, it can save you costs on maintenance in the long run. Costs are often cheaper than storing your boat at a marina, and much better for the boat.
Outdoor Boat Storage
Another viable, less expensive option is storing your boat in one of our outdoor storage facilities. These spaces are similar to a parking lot and offer a safe, secure place to house your boat when you’re not using it.
When storing outdoors, you will want to cover your boat. This provides protection from the elements such as sun, wind and rain. This is one of the more economical ways to store your boat and is perfect for anyone who is working with a smaller budget.
