Default My 21.5' center console (outboard) trailers 27.5' total length, so is a 27-28'......

I am in south Florida, where boat storage is near impossible to come by. I have a 21.5' CC right now and with the tongue and outboard trimmed down I am a little over 27', I am hoping to get a new boat soon so I am going to get on the list for a larger spot and move into it so I am ready when the time comes.

Anyway my question, with the numbers as they are with my trailer, seems like I would be looking for a spot around 33-34' (for a 27-28' boat), maybe even bigger considering a larger boat may have an even larger tongue? Seems big.... can anyone confirm?

Mine is a touch over 26" LOA and with motors trimmed all the way down to the trailer ball it's 32' so sounds like you are just about spot on for around a minimum 34' storage slot?

What about a break away tongue. Might get you more options for storage

I have one on my 13' Whaler and it works great, but the idea of a break away tongue on something ~6000lbs isn't for me, just one more moving part to check

I just had my boat shed built today for my new 28’ boat on a sport trail trailer. I don’t have the boat yet (pick it up next week), but I was told the overall length of the boat and trailer comes to 35’. My boat shed is 18x36 so I barely have enough room.
