"PHENOMENAL!!! Extremely secure, plenty of space to put my trailer, Terry was very helpful with drop-off and pick-up times. I needed a short term place to store my trailer while visiting family as we traveled across the country. I will definitely reach out to him in the future when we’re looking for storage short or long term. THANK YOU!!!"

Types of boat storage

Storing your boat outdoors in Cincinnati has many benefits. It offers easy access, ample space and can save you money compared to indoor or covered storage. Furthermore, Cincinnati's temperate climate ensures that your watercraft is not exposed to extreme weather conditions that could potentially damage it.

Different types of boat storage offer specific advantages depending on the needs:

  • Self Storage: This offers a controlled environment for storing your boat. It's perfect for residential properties with large driveways or backyards. There's ample space for maneuvering your boat and allows for easy access at any time.
  • Boat Yards: Providing plenty of room for storage, boat yards are a great option for larger watercraft. These are typically large, open spaces in residential or commercial properties, ideal for those who own large speedboats or yachts.
  • Dry Stack: As an outdoor option, dry stack storage is compact. This perfect for urban properties where space might be at a premium. It keeps your boat off the ground, which helps prevent damage from flooding or moisture.
  • Wet Storage: For those who prefer to store their boat in the water, wet storage is an excellent option. This is a suitable choice for waterfront properties. However, it's crucial to ensure proper maintenance to prevent damage from extended periods in the water.

Each type of boat storage has unique advantages. The choice depends on factors such as the size of your boat, its type and your personal preferences for accessibility and maintenance. With so many options available in Cincinnati, finding the perfect storage solution for your watercraft is quite straightforward.

Choosing outdoor boat storage

Choosing the right boat storage location requires careful consideration. Here are some key factors that will guide you in selecting the most convenient, accessible, and safe outdoor storage for your valued watercraft.

  • Access Considerations: Accessibility is key when it comes to boat storage. Ensure that the storage is accessible during the hours you're likely to pick up or drop off your boat. Keep in mind the width of the entry and exit points as well; they should comfortably allow for your boat and trailer to pass through.
  • Space Size: It's crucial to measure your boat and trailer (including height) to establish the minimum space required for storage. It's also wise to consider the ease of maneuvering your boat within the space. Allow room for additional items such as fishing gear, sails, or life jackets that might need storage too.
  • Location Proximity: The storage space should be at a location that is convenient for you. If you frequently use your boat in Cincinnati waters, a storage unit within the city would be ideal. However, don't compromise on safety. Check the security measures in place. A well-lit, fenced area with surveillance can give you peace of mind.

Remember, every boat is unique, and so are the storage needs. By carefully assessing these factors, you will be able to find a suitable outdoor storage location for your boat.

Climate considerations

In Cincinnati Ohio, the climate can greatly influence how you store your watercraft. In the peak summer months, average high temperatures reach about 86°F. For this, it's advisable to shield your boat from direct sunlight and heat, as these can cause damage to the hull and interior. A weather-resistant boat cover or tarp can protect from sun and rain damage.

In the peak winter, average low temperatures can drop to 23°F. During this time, freezing temperatures can cause potential damage to your watercraft's engine and pipes. For this reason, it is highly recommended to winterize your boat, including draining the engine, tank, and pipes, and adding antifreeze. This is especially important for sensitive vessels like speed and fishing boats.

Regardless of the season, shielding your watercraft with a protective cover is a solid strategy for maintaining its condition year-round.
