Keeping Your Boat in Santa Barbara Harbor
It is very common to acquire a slip in Santa Barbara Harbor by purchasing a boat already assigned to a slip and obtaining the slip through a permit transfer. The slip usually represents an additional cost on top of the asking price of the boat. The Harbor is municipally owned, so it is the permit to use the slip that is being purchased. Occasionally, slips without boats are available. In addition to the cost of purchasing the interest in the unsecured property (the slip permit), you pay a one-time transfer fee, a security deposit, and monthly slip rental fee to the city. There are also annual property taxes, based on the market value of the slip, payable to Santa Barbara County.
