Marinas That Allow Live-Aboards in Florida


If you're looking to fulfill your dream of a simpler life, living aboard your boat on the water, you'll find a handful of marinas in Florida that will help you make this dream come true.

Most marinas require standard liability and a security deposit for all long term live-aboards.
