cost of keeping a boat on lake geneva, lausanne?

Hi there,

I'm going to visit the marine office soon enough.

Just wanted to see any info the people of the forum could give me.

The boat would be small out board motor 24 ft.

Thanks

Your main problem won't be the cost, but finding moorings - some people have been on waiting lists for years. Bonne chance.

What about a place to keep it out of water?

I know a guy that bought a boat like to fish in and he had multiple offers for the mooring spot that exceeded the price he paid for just the boat.

He bought both in a combination deal. There were many people that tried to get the council to negate his lease on the mooring spot as it was so valuable and they had been on a list for years. But he bought the rights to the mooring lease when he bought the boat from the previous owner.

Looks like "hens teeth" and "rocking horse sh*t" are in greater supply

When I used to sail on Lac Leman, I just took the lessons which cost less than 1000chf and the joined the Yacht Club for another 1000chf per year. For which I got to use the 7 meter boats whenever I wanted to do so. Talk about dirt cheap.

And I got invited to the holiday parties at the club since I was a full member, as well.

I have been considering this also. I'm considering a trailer-sailer. I will PM you when I have more practical details.

Good luck.

BTW, I lived in St. Prex and sailed out of the Morges Yacht Club.
