If you already own your yacht, be sure to communicate your needs to your real estate agent. If you plan to purchase a boat after selecting your property, keep in mind that some waterways and communities are only reachable by vessels with certain clearances. You will need to speak with your Realtor® and become aware of waterway limitations depending on the vessel. The area has many bridges that open and many that don't and this may affect your real estate options.
Homes with a Dock
Many Intracoastal homes have private docks, for sunbathing, entertaining, and boat access. When someone is trying to decide between an oceanfront and a waterfront home, one of the distinguishing characteristics that help narrow down the choice is often the dock. If you own a boat or plan to purchase one, having a private dock is an obvious choice. Even if you do not own a boat or plan to in the future, a dock provides private waterfront views and the perfect place to throw an intimate gathering, practice mediation, or enjoy your morning cup of coffee in a serene waterfront setting.
Deep Water Homes
For those planning to dock their boat on the Intracoastal, it’s important to look at deepwater homes. To qualify as deep water access, the water must be a minimum of 6 feet deep even at low tide, suitable for a large sailboat. Intracoastal and deep water access are not synonymous, so it’s absolutely essential to keep your real estate agent informed as to your plans and wishes. With deep water access, your ultimate boating dreams are possible.
There are 19 ocean access points in Florida to connect the Intracoastal to the Atlantic Ocean. If proximity to ocean access is a priority, it will be important to make note of how close your potential homes are to the nearest access points. It’s also important to note that the inlets may be difficult to navigate depending on the vessel size and experience, however, give us a call and we can share our local insights, as well as put you in touch with a hired captain.
