Today’s modern marinas offer many amenities to make your experience with your choice of one of them an additional enjoyment and a place to get the best investment in usage and protection for your boat or yacht in the large variety of features that are provided for you.
One of the benefits of a modern marina is their variety of locations on the coasts lining the country. As well as their easy access from man waterways, where you can explore the surroundings to your heart’s content, or take longer trips through connecting lakes, and rivers. Many excellent resorts, theme parks, and retaurants, line the coasts, and can be reached by water, as well as by land.
You will find wet slips that accommodate most sizes of vessels at most modern marinas. Often there are discounts on gas and diesel for members. Sandwiches, snacks and cold drinks are available as well as tackle and bait. Some offer the sale of new and used boats so that you can find another vessel if you are in the market for that new experience and then trade in your current craft or arrange to sell it through that marina.
Do you need a safe place for your boat if a hurricane is approaching? The new more modern marinas normally have such dry boat storage spaces for safety and protection during severe storms and winds up to as much as 145 mph.
Marinas are known for their professional marine service facilities using factory certified technicians. Motor repairs for boats, as well as bottom cleaning, and painting, are featured services offered by the marina owners. Keeping barnacles off of your boat, avoids damage to the motor, and hull, which adds to your speed and saves on fuel costs..
Many of the marinas host special events for their members such as cook-outs, Sunday brunches, dances, pool parties and other social activities.
Holding banquets, family reunions, business meetings, or a conference at a marina presents a new method to combine a special event, beautiful surroundings, and recreation or business activities. A large houseboat would make an ideal meeting place for large groups such as these.
Do you want to find a spectacular wedding location? Check with various marinas to see which one appeals to the bride and groom, and which offers the most encompassing service to deal with all details. A beachfront courtyard for the ceremony, and a well decorated dining area, perhaps in a large tent, for dinner and dancing afterwards, will make the wedding glamorous and unforgettable.
Now you no longer need a boat to live on a marina. There are now apartments in marinas that cant be rented. Some marinas also offers condominiums that can be leased, or purchased. This is the best of both worlds if the individual also owns a boat. Finding the right spot to call home in a marina can be tricky and as such it is best to learn as much as possible, before committing to any long term lease.
