I just found this table for the pricing method of some Turkish Marina, which may be a custom there, but one have to check first. For a calculation in advance, it is good to anticipate. To calculate your price, multiply your boat LOA with your beam to get square meters, then find the column corresponding to this size. As you see there are sizes between 24 – 59.99 m², 60 – 119.99 m², 120 – 179.99 m² and 180 m² and more, fact that makes four area columns. The time period is calculated in days, and as you see, the smallest factor is for a whole year. Find the multiplication factor for the number of days you plan to stay. Then, multiply this factor with the boat area you found in m² and after that, multiply it with the number of days you plan to stay. The result will be the price in Euros, for the whole period. The best part is that this includes a half price haul and launch with ten days of hard standing, with the water and electricity costs also included. Let’s say you own a Beneteau Oceanis 58, and you plan to stay 365 days. Multiply 18.24 m LOA with 4.99 beam which makes the area 91.01 m². You look in the 2’nd area column the 60 – 119.99² column and find the multiplication factor 0.255
Multiply 91.01 with 0.255 and the result with 365 and you’ll have the price of 8,470 Euros for a whole year, which makes the parking of your luxurious 5 star yacht, cheaper than any sort of lodging you can find outside the marina, with electricity and water costs included, 20.20 Euros/day, a joke.
The Marina view looks like this:
and your Oceanis looks like this:
Just imagine! 10,000 Euros are a small part of a week price if you charter your 3 cabins Oceanis.
