Conch Harbor Boatslips - Key West - Priced to Sell!

One of the interesting things about Key West real estate is the continued development of boat slips in the Key West area. The Historic Seaport "Conch Harbor" was re-vitalized a few years back and it looks great. It has great new facilities including pool, showers, restaurants, and businesses that meet the needs of boaters.

CLICK HERE to read what the listing Realtor has to say about Boat slip No. 12 at Conch Harbor Marina that was JUST LISTED and PRICED TO SELL at $325,000. This is a 45' slip. It is part of an association whose monthly fee of $553.82 includes electric, water, and cable. Owners have full use of the facilities at the Conch Harbor Marina including showers, pool, restaurants, and other fun stuff. Taxes are presently $3150.43.

There are two other new boat slip listings.

Boat slip No. 15 CLICK HERE is a 50' slip and it is offered at $399,000. The monthly condo fee of $714.56 includes electric, water and cable. Current taxes on this slip are $3150.43.

I took some photos of the area this morning before the birds woke up. This place is so quiet right now. Wait till Fantasy Fest in October and the boat races in November. This place will be a madhouse of activity very shortly. CLICK HERE to see the photos.

Gary - for comparison's sake, what is the cost of renting a boatslip versus buying one? I mean, if you own a property with a pool in KW.. and are just looking for a place to put a boat, are these prices reasonable or really expensive? Are they interesting investments?

Sean, There are 10 slips for sale at Conch Harbor. These 3 among the least expensive based on price per foot.
Owners may lease the slips through the Harbor Master.
I'm not sure anyone that owns a boat or boatslip would refer to that asset as an investment.
A serious buyer needs to evaluate the cost of owning vs. renting himself. I have been told that the longer slips are more valuable as there are just not that many of them. The amenities and location of Conch Harbor offset some of the cheaper prices elsewhere nearby because of the location.
Here are all of the available slips at Conch Harbor.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
Key West, Florida, United States
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.
