  • Building Garage - Dimensions for Wakeboard Set?

    I am relocating and due to typical garage sizes may actually have a builder add a large single bay garage for Ski Nautique (196) since even the three car garages require angling the boat in. I know I could comfortably fit the boat and trailer in a 12' x 25' (interior) garage with a 10' or 11' door.

    So I don't hose myself for resale by building a garage too small for the wakeboarders, what size garage is necessary for some of the bigger boats? Would a 12' x 25' work well?

    Thanks,
    Blue Ski

    I have a 93 sport with a new dimension on it and for easy backing, I am reframing for a 10wide 8 high door. I went to Son watersports (local nautique dealer) and measured for the same reason, as not to do it twice. I found a 230 to be about 8'6" wide on a trailer and a 211 witha FCT folded sat 7'6" tall. S generically speaking a standard 9 wide 8 tall should do ya easily for most boats. I can do the reframing cheap and the doors installed are like 500 so it is cheap for ease of use for me. I would go at least 25 deep though. Most can remove platforms or swing toungs if need be to fit something bigger. 12x25 sounds like a good size.

      Thanks. Now I just hope the builder can do it for a good price. Who am I kidding, with this market he is just happy to have work for his crews.

        Stick with a standard width, 9', 10' or 12' and if you have the height available definitely go 8' high, even higher would be better but 8' will accommodate most tower boats with the tower folded.

          My 211 needs 26' to not remove the platform or fold the tongue. 25' is fine if I fold the tongue. I would personally not do less than a 10' tall door. No need to fold the tower then. I just clipped an overhang that rated at 9' (didn't measure it, though)

            Most dont have at least 10' for that height for a door. I am lucky enough, but it was custom.

              i wouldn't go any less than 30 ft. deep.i have 2 detached garages ones 36 and the other is 25 deep. normally the boat's in the 36,but right now its in the 25 and it is really frustrating when i go out there to work on it.with the doors closed its all you can do to go around either side even with the platform off and tongue folded.not to mention you never know when you gonna upgrade to a 206,216 or more :mrgreen: .as far as cost i've been building for years and the extra$ will be peanuts compared to the usabililty of the extra 5 ft.one other thing to consider is the 10 ft door will add alot to the price(atleast 2,000 bucks)door price,taller walls,more siding etc.as far as getting a good deal and a fair shake from your builder there are alot people taking advatage of the current economy situation and really beating people up on estimates and bids.i've been building houses for almost 20 yrs now and there's nothing more frustrating then someone beating you up on your price.we all have to make a living. i charge a fair price for an honest days work..nothing more,nothing less.anyways let me know if theres anyway i can be of assistance.

                forgot to mention if you're trying to save money, the most bang for your buck is a 16 by 32 foot print.plus you'll love the extra space and better for re-sale

                  25 feet is not enough. With my 21 foot SAN, I can put it in the garage with tongue and platform in place. However, to have some room to walk around back, I fold the tongue and remove the platform. Then store a shop vac, some ski gear, etc, and I'm right back to where I can't walk around the back. Some of these wakeboard boats are 25 ft long now. If I was starting from scratch, I wouldn't build it less than 35 feet so I had room for the boat, room for a work bench or cabinets, and still had room to walk through. BKH

                  P.S. 10 ft garage door is a must.

                    I built a 20x30 at my house and put a 14' high garage door on it. If you can, go ahead and get a tall garage door so you don't have to mess with lowering the tower everytime you are putting your boat up. It is sure nice to back your boat down with the bimini and tower up. Makes cleaning easier and makes it a lot easier next time you are getting it out to go ride.

                      you guys sure know how to spend some money :mrgreen: i would think a 12 by 12 door would be more than enough room.my tower is maybe 11'6" at its tallest point,and thats probably a stretch at that.either way i guess you can't go wrong with the bigger is better.
