Boat Storage: Is Indoor or Outdoor Better?

When it’s time to store your boat for the winter, you may be wondering which option is better for you – outdoor storage or indoor storage. Both have their pros and cons, but it truly depends on what you think is best for your boat. You are the one responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of your watercraft. If you’re trying to make a decision, keep in mind these considerations from Jordanelle Rentals & Marina

Boat Storage: Is Indoor or Outdoor Better?

Outdoor Storage

Outdoor boat storage is a popular option among many boat owners. Not only is this a budget-friendly solution, but it also allows you to keep a visible eye on your boat all winter long. You have the option of keeping it on your own property or storing it on the property of the marina or boatyard of your choice. 

If you do choose to store your boat outside you run the risk of exposing it to the harsh winter weather. Your watercraft is also vulnerable to possible damage from others, whether intentional or not, due to the limited security of being outside.

Indoor Storage

If you’re looking for the ultimate in protection for your personal watercraft, indoor storage is the best route. It may not be as budget-friendly as outdoor storage, but your boat will be safely secured for the duration of the winter.

The main advantage of storing your boat indoors is complete protection from the winter elements. Whether your area gets snow, ice, or wind, your boat will remain secure and intact. The primary disadvantage would be the price of outdoor storage. It does cost more to store your vessel indoors but you are also receiving more benefits with this option.
