If you’re like most boat owners, a garage plan with boat storage is necessary, providing a place to keep your investment safe from the elements when you’re not out on the water. In general, boat storage garage plans are detached garages usually designed to hold one or two family cars along with a boat and trailer. Typically, boat storage garage plans offer at least one extra deep bay accommodating the length of the boat. Most of the designs in The Garage Plan Shop’s collection have a bay that is at least 28’ deep. Some garage plans with boat storage even offer an overhead garage door at the rear of the boat storage bay allowing you to pull straight through the garage to park and store your boat rather than facing the hassle of backing the boat in or out of the garage.
Boat storage garage plans are available in a wind variety of sizes and styles ensuring you’ll find just the right one to satisfy your needs and fit nicely in your backyard. Different combinations of garage doors, rooflines and exterior finishes contribute to a greater selection of designs to choose from making it easy to find a garage plan with boat storage that compliments the architectural style of your home.
Some garage plans with boat storage provide convenient extras like a full or half bath, workbench, storage closet for holding fishing poles and lifejackets, or an upper level loft. There are even some with an entire living quarters above, great for a vacation home at the lake giving you a place to store your boat rather than towing it back home with you.
While boat storage garage plans are primarily designed for boats, they are well suited for other uses such as a workshop, storage for basement or attic overflow, or storage of lawn and garden equipment. If you wish to accommodate a much larger boat, take a look at our RV garage plans. These designs might better satisfy your needs and deliver many of the same features.
