    Default Best Boat Garage Dimensions

    I'm looking to build a new house and am finalizing the boat garage layout.

    I'm going 30ft deep and 12 ft wide, but how high should I go!?

    Also, what garage door size to pick?

    I don't want to mess with taking my tower down either!

    Experiences!?!? Thanks!

    Oh and it's a 2008 LSV with standard tower, I just can't remember how high it is when trailered...

    I store mine in a 12 x 30 garage with a 10 foot high door, might be 11. but do not have to put the tower down and have plenty of room to walk around and even store stuff behind the boat.

    my shop is 12ft ceilings with a 101/2 ft. door height. Went 6in higher than standard to be able to get my camper and ac unit to fit. 10 should do it?

    Ok great.

    My original plan is 12x12 garage door with a 14ft ceiling!

    Sounds like it should be good to go

    My shop also has 12' ceiling with a 10' x 10' door. Don't have to lower the tower, no issues.

    With a 10x10 door are you guys finding it a tight fit at all!?

    I don't know the price difference between doors but if it's significant I might go 10x10 to save some money.

    The way I'll be setting it up, should be a straight shot in reverse so hopefully no issues with going in at an angle

    I back mine straight in to a 10'x10' opening with no problems.

    I went with a 10x12 door with 14 ceiling. Our boat wouldn't clear a 10ft door height.

    I'd say if you plan to be in this house (and boat) for some time to come definitely plan to go with a wider/bigger door if the budget allows. So much less stressful to back in with room to spare vs. cutting it tight. Something you wont' regret in the long term. Especially putting it away in the dark after a long day in the sun and suds.

    I have vowed that our next house will have room to spare with both the boat and the trailer. Backing that sucker in at 36'8" bumper to tongue without a little wiggle room is a real treat.
    The years have been kind, it's the weekends that have done the damage.
