Warm sun, cool water and coastal living. Sounds like paradise. We know what you’re thinking: add a boat and you have the perfect recipe for a happy retirement. As an avid boater, it’s highly likely that you’ve dreamt of retiring to a community that is close to the water so that you can take your boat out any time you want. And if you’re planning to retire in the next fifteen years or so, finding the right retirement location is something you should begin researching now.

When you begin (or continue) your research into retirement communities that offer you the boating opportunities you desire, you should remember that the perfect retirement location balances your ideal setting with your other wants and needs. As a boater, you probably consider year round boating opportunities and low berthing and maintenance costs as a high priority. However, you’ll also want to determine how important other wants and needs are to you to find the right location.

Some of the other considerations you should think about include cost of living, weather, available amenities, access to proper health care, and proximity to family and loved ones. One additional consideration that you may not have thought of is what kind of atmosphere you want in your retirement community. Boating communities range from tranquil to exciting, and finding the right community will go a long way to making your retirement everything you want it to be. We invite you to use the guides below to help you in finding the right boating community for your retirement.
