Port of Bremerton raises covered moorage rents, late fees

Rents are going up for covered moorage tenants at the Port Orchard Marina.

Port of Bremerton commissioners approved a 5 percent rate hike for covered slips at their Tuesday meeting. Rents for the coveted spaces were below the industry standard, according to port staff.

The adjustment will raise rent on a 36-foot slip from about $306 a month to about $321. Revenue from the 158 covered slips will increase by $12,325 a year. See the PDF below for a full breakdown. The increase takes effect June 1.

Commissioners also approved increases to late fees for tenants across all port facilities. Late payments were a growing nuisance, according to port staff, who are tired of spending time collecting money from the same tardy tenants each month.

Late fees will increase from 1.5 percent with a $20 minimum, to 1.5 percent with a $40 minimum. The increase also takes effect June 1.
