2/7/19 – The New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor Management Corporation hosted a boat slip draft yesterday, see video of draft here. The draft followed a lottery used to place the 135 boats currently moored in the broken West side of the old marina to the 150 Brand New floating slips on the East side of the NEW MARINA! The boats are scheduled to move at the end of March, 2019.

Demolition of the West side of the marina will start in March, 2019. The Marina is scheduled to be up and running with utilities in the 4th quarter of 2019. The current slip rent (without power and water) is just over $2.00 per boat foot, per month. The rates have not yet been announced for the completed marina. The other marinas on the South Shore of Lake Pontchartrain include the following rates for a 40′ slip:

Orleans Marina at West End approximately $7.25 per foot, per month

South Shore Harbor Marina (5 miles East of West End) approximately $4.10 per foot, per month

New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor Management Corporation, past and present, for their efforts to rebuild an important part of New Orleans.
