Instead of buying a home in Florida, my wife and I are wondering if long term marina hopping is a real thing, and how do we reserve slips so far in advance? Meaning, we buy an ocean worthy vessel (what minimum size do you recommend?) and reserve a slip in southeast Florida for one year. Then we fly down and explore that area for a year for long weekends at a time and fly home. The dream is then to reserve a slip in Southwest Florida and reposition the vessel there for 6 months, fly down and back. Then reserve a slip in the Keys for 6 months, then Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, etc. You get the idea. Is it reasonable to reserve long term slips so far in advance? Or do marinas not know if occupants will renew? Is there a shorter period of slip rental that is more predictable? And can marinas be trusted to generally honor those reservations so far in advance? We have a 40 foot sterndrive express cruiser in fresh water northern US. Thank you for your time and expertise.
