I'm building a house and will be looking to purchase a boat, possibly a new boat. My question is what is the average length of a boat and boat trailer to fit in a garage with a swing away hitch or regular hitch to the very end of the motor. Thanks

I have a 20 ft garage and my 17.6 fits pretty snug...id say a 18 would probably be max. Ill add some pictures of the trailer, its not a swing arm but its a stubby!

What kind of boat do you want and what type? I have a 17'9" Nitro with a swing away and my garage is 22" deep 2 car. Boat just fits.. With that setup i wish I had a 30' 3-car garage. My buddy has a 21' Skeeter and his garage is at least 40' 3 car(it was built for a big ski boat). He gets one car and the boat in there.....

Make your garage 25ft long and that should cover most boats.

Okie Poke is right, just make the garage 25 ft. I have a 20 ft boat and I put mine in the garage kaddie cornered with the from at the door and also have a 6 inch jackplate on 200 horse motor.

My ranger is lil over 27' from tongue to prop. Now, I could drop motor down & use swing away tongue and maybe make it fit in a 25' garage without going kaddie corner route. But if you can afford to build larger, GO BIG! You'll be thankful to be able to just back that baby in & drop it.

I built mine 24 x 36. I wish I had gone 36 x 48. It can never be big enough.

That's the same size of my shop. 24x36. I back my boat in to where the door just clears the tongue which gives me just enough room to get other stuff in /out the back roll up door (lawn mower,etc.)

I first decided to build 24x30. The guy helping me said you can never build big enough so I changed to 24x36. It still ain't enough!! So TxSteve, if you can build big!!

My garage is 25'x 20' with an 18' door. My RANGER 521 fits in fine with the swing away tongue. Also in the garage are two bicycles, John Deere riding mower, push mower, yard cart. I don't have a fridge or freezer in the space built for that so I put the shop vac, small air compressor, power washer, weed eater and edger in that spot. Can still fit my F250 in there too. Still wish I had built bigger!
