Hi Hallebarde,

Many of those large ships are not really ships at all. They're stationary objects, just like a house. Some of them are used as houses. It's only their familiar ship shape that makes you think they're "real" ships. And the reason they don't return to inventory is that they belong to the parcel owner(s), or they belong to people who have rezzing rights on the parcel.

There are marinas that rent slips, allowing you to leave a boat for extended periods of time. That's no different than renting prim space on a parcel somewhere (as opposed to actually renting a parcel, which would give you additional rights and capabilities). Whether you place a boat or a house doesn't make a difference. Land Impact is Land Impact.

Others here may know where to rent marina slips, and how much you might expect to pay for the privilege. I expect the rental fees won't be much different than for plots of land (chunks of Land Impact) in beautifully landscaped regions.

Smooth sailing!

Maddy is right on.  You have to own or rent the sea floor under your lovely yacht to keep it from being Returned.  For example, we have a few liveaboard yacht slips in my own rental sim, that can take up to about a 42 meter craft.  Other marinas on the Blake Sea and other popular SL sailing areas also rent slips or moorings.
