Choosing Boat Storage

Choosing the right storage unit for your boat or other watercraft can be a daunting task, especially in the city of Minneapolis. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when selecting a storage space for your watercraft:

  • Location - Where the storage unit is located in relation to your residence and to the area's waterways.
  • Accessibility - Whether the storage unit is easily accessible and if it offers extended hours.
  • Size - Making sure the unit can accommodate the size of your boat or watercraft.
  • Compatibility - Ensuring the storage unit is compatible with your boat or watercraft.
  • Security - Considering the security of the storage unit and surrounding area.

Climate Considerations

Renting storage for a boat or other watercraft in Minneapolis, Minnesota, should take into account the area's climate and weather. The average high temperature in peak summer is around 80° Fahrenheit and the average low temperature in peak winter is around 0° Fahrenheit. These temperature extremes can cause damage to the boat and other watercraft if not properly protected.

To help protect your watercraft, it is recommended to use a cover or tarp. This will help to keep the watercraft protected from the harsh winds, snow, and rain of the area. Additionally, it is important to make sure the storage area offers some degree of protection from the elements, such as a wall or roof. This will help to reduce any potential damage from the sun or wind that can occur over time.

FAQs About Boat Storage in Minneapolis

The average cost to store a boat in Minneapolis is $114 per month.

It depends. Class A boats may fit in a 10 X 15 storage unit, while Class 2 boats should have at least a 20 X 40 storage space. Check your boat's clearance if you're renting indoor or covered boat storage.

You can find boat storage options near your home, from Warehouse District to Downtown Minneapolis to Downtown East. Access the list view, use the map, or type in your zip code to locate convenient boat storage throughout your community.

Here are the amenities you'll find:

  • 24/7 access: Rent boat storage near Minneapolis that has access 24/7, perfect for accessing your boat on your own time frame.
  • Top-notch security: Make sure your boat has the safest storage possible with a listing that offers security features like a padlock, access code, all-day surveillance, or alarm systems.
  • Follow this advice for how to store a boat long-term:

  • Perform any required maintenance.
  • If you go with dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery. If you're storing in the water, the battery should be left on board and connected.
  • The engine should be flushed and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Use fuel stabilizer.
  • Treat vinyl with a protective spray.
  • To prevent tire damage for long-term boat trailer storage, put wood blocks under the wheels.
  • Put a vented cover on or wrap your boat, if you pick outdoor storage, which you may find at Cabela's, located at 8400 Hudson Rd, Woodbury. You could also visit REI, located at 1955 County Rd B2 W Schneidermans Plaza, Roseville, for other boating-related products.

    It's a good idea to winterize your boat, as Minneapolis temperatures can get below 35 during the winter. First, flush and drain the engine, and add lubricant to keep it from corroding. If you're keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. If not, drain the fuel lines. Replace the engine filters and check the oil, hoses, clamps, and belts. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the inside and outside of the boat to remove moisture. Last, prevent rodents from entering by plugging the exhaust outlets.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. Minneapolis's high humidity in the winter months can allow mildew and mold to develop in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Rent climate-controlled boat storage to be fully protected against high humidity.

    Yes, you should get insurance. Your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy most likely covers potential theft or damage while your boat is in storage.
