Boat Storage: Indoor and Outdoor Options

In Waukesha, WI, boating season does not last long. A few months in the summer is all the ideal weather you will probably receive. This, of course, does not mean you have to forgo the boat. You just need a great place to store your boat during the off-season. 

Visit our storage Units page for more detailed information on sizes and costs.

Boat storage at home can be a real problem. Many boats are large and take up space in your garage, shop, or driveway. At Waukesha Storage facility, we offer secure indoor and outdoor boat storage solutions with options for any large or small boat and jet ski.

Storage Options

There are a variety of indoor and outdoor boat storage options for you to choose from at Waukesha Storage. 

Indoor Boat Storage

Storing your boat does not mean that it has to remain out in inclement weather. Our warehouse storage options are ideal for even large boats. The doors to our warehouse storage are 20×20. Indoor storage means less wear-and-tear on your boat, and less work for you at the beginning of boating season. 

Outdoor Boat Storage

You may not want to spend the money to store your boat indoors. If this is the case, we offer affordable outdoor boat storage options. Depending on the size of your boat, you can choose between a number of outdoor spaces. 

  • 10×20 Space: Our small 10×20 foot spaces are ideal for boats up to 18-feet long. These spaces also fit pop-up campers.  
  • 10×25 Space: The medium 10×25 spaces are perfect for you if your boat has a length of 22-28 feet. RVs of the same size can use these spaces. 
  • 10×30 Space: For large boats, you will want to purchase a 10×30 space. These fit boats between 22-28 feet long. RVs up to 28 feet long also fit in these spaces.
