Sheds for Boats: How to Design the Ideal Boat Storage Shed

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the key reasons why a storage shed might be ideal for your boat storage needs. From their variable size to the way they protect your boat from the elements and more, storage sheds are often the perfect choice for any kind of major boat storage need you have.

At A-Shed USA, we’re happy to offer our clients a wide range of storage sheds, custom garages and other structures for any of these kinds of needs. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll shift gears just a bit and look at another important topic: How to go about selecting and designing the ideal shed if boat storage is your primary need. Let’s dive in!

Consider Size of Your Property

First and foremost, just like with any other storage shed or similar structure you might be considering, you’ll need to think about the size of your property. How large is the land area you’re working with? How much of that do you want or need to dedicate to this shed? This will obviously play a major role in deciding what size shed you can ultimately get away with.

In addition, it’s also worth considering any other potential uses for the shed. For example, will you be storing any other belongings in there? If so, you might want to increase the size a bit to accommodate those needs as well.

Think About Your Boat’s Dimensions

Of course, another major factor in deciding on shed size is the dimensions of your boat. How long and wide is it? How high does it sit off the ground? Answering these questions will give you a much better idea of just how large of a shed you’ll need to comfortably and safely store your boat.

Don’t Forget About Overhangs

It’s also important to keep in mind any potential overhangs on your boat when deciding on shed size. For example, does your boat have a large trolling motor that sticks out from the back? If so, you’ll need to account for that in your shed design.

The bottom line is that you should err on the side of caution when it comes to shed size. It’s always better to have too much space than too little.

Choose the Right Materials

When it comes to the materials you use for your shed, you’ll want to choose something that’s tough and durable. After all, this shed will be sitting outside in the elements, so it needs to be able to withstand whatever Mother Nature throws its way.

At A-Shed USA, we offer our clients a wide range of different storage shed materials to choose from, including vinyl, steel, wood and more. We can help you decide which material is right for your needs and budget.
