Each ‘Dockominium’ is treated as an actual piece of real estate by the city of Bristol NH and has an address on Adams lane which is the dock number. (ie Dock 17 is 17 Adams Lane). This means that the owner receives a RE bill from Bristol NH each year and a typical bill for a dock is now about $1050 / year. From a governing association document point of view, the club technically grants a locker (in the club house) to each owner which provides dock and club rights to the same numbered dock as the locker.

The current club dues are (as voted on 19-June-2011) are as follows:

$200 club dues

$100 capital improvement fund

$300 Total Club Dues

This means that the typical cost of ownership of a dock at the Newfound Boat Club is the sum of the property taxes to Bristol NH plus the club dues are follows:

$1050 Nominal Real Estate Taxes

$300 Total Club Dues

$1350 Total Annual Cost of Ownership

Docks are sold and rented by their owners each season and this site helps the buyers, sellers and renters accomplish this. Typical rents are now in the $2,500 to $3,400 range depending upon time of year, location of dock, availability and size of dock.

As a dock owner, if you wish to rent your dock and you choose a local real estate agent then you will be charged a 15% rental commission. Given the range of rents of the docks then that fee would be:

@ $2500 Rent the fee would be $375

@ $3000 Rent the fee would be $450


So if you were a dock owner / landlord and you used a real estate agent to rent your dock then your cost of ownership would be:

@ $2500 Rent the total cost of ownership = $1350 + $375 = $1725

@ $3000 Rent the total cost of ownership = $1350 + $450 = $1800
