Anchorage Park Marina: Boat Ramp Decal

Anchorage Dock
Click for Permit Decal Registration

One of the premiere luxuries of being a North Palm Beach resident is access to launch boats and personal watercrafts from the Anchorage Park Marina Boat Ramp at 603 Anchorage Drive.

A Permit Decal is required to launch any trailered item from the boat ramp. This decal is for North Palm Beach residents only. Business owners in North Palm can also get a decal. Decals cost $60 plus tax. However, residents purchasing a third decal or more will only be charged $10 plus tax for each additional one. This is an annual purchase that begins every October 1. All decals expire every September 30th. Decal fees will be prorated for purchases made mid-year.

If you previously purchased a boat ramp sticker but obtained a new vehicle or changed license plates, you won't be charged for a replacement sticker. Remember to adhere to Ordinance 5-33: affix all launch stickers permanently to the driver's side of the trailer within four (4) feet of the hitch connection (effective October 1, 2023).

Kayak and Paddleboard LaunchYou can obtain a permit decal at the Anchorage Park Activities Building during office hours. We now offer the option to purchase it online, but you must wait to receive the actual decal via mail to use the ramp. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the online link. Select the Permit Decal Registration button above to purchase a permit online (not available in August or September).

Commercial Loading/Unloading: If you're a resident and are arranging permitted work on your seawall, dock, or lift, please inform the office before your contractor intends to use the boat ramp. We are currently discussing the potential need for a separate commercial loading or unloading permit. Meanwhile, any contractor using the boat ramp should check in at the Anchorage Park activities building between 9 a.m and 5 p.m. Note that commercial usage of the boat ramp is not permitted on weekends and holidays.

The Marina also includes two (2) day docks for pick-up/drop off and a walk-up kayak launch platform (above photo). These facilities do not need a permit to use. Please note that overnight stays are strictly prohibited in these day slips.

Wet and Dry Storage

Our marina offers 133 dry storage spaces and 31 wet slips. These annual rentals are for NPB Residents only. Proof of residency and valid boat, boat trailer, or RV registration is required every year. If you are a renter, proof of 1-year lease is required. Renewals take place Oct. 01. Business owners in North Palm are not eligible for storage spots.

With the ever growing interest in owning a boat or RV, the Marina is always full, therefore accumulating an ever growing waitlist! If you would like to be on a waitlist, please visit our electronic waitlist form to sign yourself up. Staff will review your application to verify residency and may reach out if they have questions. REMEMBER, per rules approved by the Recreation Board on July 12, 2022, you are no longer allowed to sign up for all of the Dry Storage Boat Size waitlists. You only allowed to sign up for ONE (1) Dry Storage spot and ONE (1) wet slip.

When you rent storage space, you'll receive two (2) boat launch stickers. But please be aware that we cannot offer refunds for any decals purchased before the start of your rental contract.

Maximum Boat Length - Please note that the maximum boat length that can be accommodated in our wet slips is 40 feet.
