Please see review of 1/2/16 which was intended for Safe Harbor Boat Storage but was submitted by error to the Charlotte Harbor Boat Storage
My error as Safe Harbor was great to deal with

Splash Imtiimadtion, 2015-04-04
Captain: , punta Gorda (10)

After 2 months at this yard and ready to launch while paying the bill and much to my suprised was presented with a extra charge that was made up by the owners imagination. He claimed that he was charging me because I greatly inconvienced him by not moving my boat out of the sandblast pit after the blasting was finished. Nevrer did he advise me of tis while the boat was being worked on that I had to move my boat. During the heated discussion his demdand went to not accepting my check to cash only. I had no alternative in order to get the boat launched and paid. The travel lift operator Matt is very professional. George the
Painter did a great job!!!

Has the boat on hard and stayed here on boat 3 days getting it ready to be splashed. The staff were very helpful and the splash was an easy event. It is a little out of the way but the prices seemed reasonable to me, I have seen lots higher for haul out, storage and dackage.

Good yard, but, 2014-11-15

Good storage and DIY yard, but you cannot stay on your boat overnight while it's hauled--place is locked up tight at night.

Great covered boat storage and good people that care for your boat.

Inconvenient and Expensive, 2013-07-05
Captain: , Burnt Store, FL (489)

If you are looking for a high priced yard that is hard to get to, this is the place. $600 for in-out and two weeks storage for a 32 ft. boat. 30 miles from the ICW including 10 miles of canals inside a poorly maintained and sometimes broken self-service lock.

new friendly owners, 2013-05-02
Captain: , venice fla. (10)

new owners are making this a much better yard. investing $ to upgrade and improve this facility. been storing s/v Plan Sea here for 6 summers and they have always been ontime for haul outs and launches. Recent improvements will make this facility even better, showers, laundry, fresh water at their dock and regrading of the expansive yard

Front office and yard help was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. Completed a DIY bottom with out any issues. Just put a tarp down and connect a vacume to the sander. Very nice and well run yard.

Captain: , PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (1328)

Now under new ownership with great people and staff. Kerrie & Jack Cervenka are the new owners and there to help all they can to make your stay pleasant. They have a great list of subcontractors if you need somebody or you can do your own work. The yard is very secure. Have been there several times with no problems and would recommend to anyone. Emily in the office has been there for years and has a tremendous knowledge of the area and its people. You won't be disapointed.

Not the place, 2012-01-09
Captain: , Punta Gorda FL (1709)

Went looking for a place to do my own bottom job. Checked out All American and Charlotte Harbor Boat Storage which is right next door. The two yards are totally different in atmosphere. I understand that All American's owner is an ex New York cop with an attitude and a stickler for following his rules. When I called I found this to be true. It was their way or the highway. No discussion. Do it or don't come. I wish them all the best and went next door to Charlotte Harbor Boat Storage. Best of all, Charlotte Harbor was cheaper, friendlier and willing to do whatever it took to help you get it right.

Stored 8 months, boat was as we left it. They were on time for haul and launch. No problems painting bottom, we just supplied a tarp for under area where we were painting. They did check up on us when we drove in without stopping. Friendly staff.

Excellent security, good value and nice knowledgeable folks. If you want someone in to work on your boat, make sure they have teh right insurance.
