I don't own a boat so I have no idea what I am writing about except that I have heard this phrase used many times: "the happiest day of a boat owner's life is the day they buy the boat and the day they sell it." I guess anything you love can end up being expensive if you do it right or do it up "big".
Two days ago I wrote about the new Steamplant Condos that overlook the Conch Harbor Marina on the Historic Key West Seaport. That area as a whole is referred to as the Key West Bight. Click the black and white photo to the right and it enlarge to provide a better view of all the marinas in that immediate area.
The dazzling moonlight photo is taken from the Galleon Marina looking toward the Steamplant. That photo is a couple of years old and shows the Steamplant's steel skeleton.
If you own a boat and want to buy a hole in the water in Key West I have prepared a short list of boatslips that are for sale. CLICK HERE to preview the list. There are numerous new boatslips available on Stock Island at Sunset Marina, the Pennisular Marina, and Kings Point Marina. There are only a few available at the Galleon or Conch Harbor Marinas. Location plays just as big a roll in the pricing of boatslips as it does in homes. The slips located at the Bight are the ones most in demand because of their prime location. And it seems that boatslips have held there value relatively well during the past two years.
Let me help you buy a hole in the water. Call Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on other boatslips or other property

- I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
