Choosing Boat Storage

When looking to rent storage for a boat or other watercraft in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, it is important to consider the climate and weather of the area. The average high temperature in peak summer is 85°F, while the average low temperature in peak winter is 28°F.

Boat Storage in Philadelphia: Frequently Asked Questions

Boat storage rates in Philadelphia are $201 each month, on average.

It depends. Class 2 boats should have at least a 20 X 40 storage space, while Class A boats (typically fishing dinghies) may fit in a 10 X 15 storage space. Check the boat's clearance if you rent indoor or covered boat storage.

Use Neighbor's map view to locate Philadelphia boat storage close to your favorite fishing spot or near your neighborhood. You can also type in your zip code or use the list view to view boat storage in your neck of the woods, in neighborhoods like Rittenhouse Row, Midtown Village, or Center City.

Here are the amenities your neighbors might offer:

  • Flexible access: Need the flexibility of getting to your boat any moment of the day (or night)? We get it. Book a Philadelphia boat storage unit that offers daily access.
  • Security: Make sure your boat has the safest storage possible with a listing that offers security such as a padlock, security cameras, an access code, or all-day surveillance.
  • Here's how to prepare your boat for long-term storage:

  • Make any essential repairs.
  • The battery should be left on board and connected if you're storing your boat in the water. Disconnect the battery if you go with dry vs. wet storage.
  • The engine should be flushed and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Spray vinyl with a protective spray.
  • For long-term boat trailer storage, the wheels should be put on wood blocks to prevent tire damage.
  • Use a vented boat wrap or boat cover, if storing outside, which can typically be found at your local boating retailer. For other boating products, you could also check REI, located at 200 W Ridge Pike Ste 115, Conshohocken.

    Philadelphia temperatures can get below 35 in the winter, so it's a good idea to winterize your boat. First, flush and drain the engine, and add lubricant to protect it from corrosion. If you're keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. If not, drain the fuel lines. Replace the engine filters and check belts, hoses, clamps, and the oil. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the exterior and interior of the boat to remove moisture. Finally, plug exhaust outlets to prevent rodents from entering.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. Philadelphia's high winter humidity can increase the opportunities of mold and mildew developing in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Indoor, climate-controlled boat storage provides the best protection against high humidity.

    Insurance is highly recommended for boat storage in Philadelphia. Usually, renter's or homeowner's insurance will cover any damage or theft while your boat is being stored, but check your policy to confirm.
