Tampa’s Yacht Challenge: Finding A Property That Can Accommodate A Large Boat

When you live by the sea and embrace the coastal lifestyle, chances are you’re passionate about boating. And we believe that there’s nowhere in the world quite like Florida when it comes to getting out on the crystal blue waters and setting foot on the most beautiful beaches in the world. 

 If you’ve got a large boat, you’ll know how tricky it can be to find a property that’s going to be able to accommodate it. So many properties in Florida simply don’t have sufficient water frontage, or the conditions to accommodate a large vessel.

Let’s look at why it’s important to have a property that has plenty of water frontage, and how we can help you to get the property that’s right for your boating lifestyle. 

Owning a property with sufficient water-frontage and its own dock is essential if you value:

  1. Convenience

Imagine a boat excursion when you’ve got your own private dock. It’s straightforward, safe, and enjoyable. There’s no time wasted, waiting in line to embark and disembark at the marina.

  1. Entertainment

Think about all the fun you’ll have with your boat in your own backyard. Just invite friends and family, grab a cooler, and take off…Don’t forget the joy you’ll get out of simply seeing your boat every day and what a backdrop it can be while entertaining poolside.

  1. Return on investment

When the day comes to sell your waterfront property, your investment will be rewarded with increased property value. The value of the waterfront property with its own private dock is continuing to rise because the demand is always going to be high. Make no mistake taking a dock for granted. There will likely be a time in the future when new dock permits will not be granted for environmental reasons. A waterfront property with a private dock is a smart decision. 

  1. Reducing fees

Life with a large vessel can start to add up: your own private dock, you won’t have to deal with availability headaches or the recurring cost of boat storage fees. 

  1. Security

Docked privately at home, you can perfectly monitor your vessel with security cameras 

  1. Safety

To safely moor your yacht or boat, you need sufficient water depth at low tide, Making sure the property can accommodate the needs of your boat (draft) is an important aspect your Realtor can help you with. 

Sailing into the sunset

As boating enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the challenge when it comes to finding a home that accommodates the boating life. Boating brings you joy and your home should, too. Why settle for anything else but the property that has it all?
