For many boaters, the marina is much more than just place to store a boat—it’s a home away from home. When selecting a marina, you want the same affordability, safety, and comfort you get at your own home. It’s important to make sure that it can provide you with not only features of a good marina, but a great experience as well. Here are some things to consider when choosing a marina:
You want to make sure that your boat is safe in the marina. Does the marina take measures to protect against hurricanes, theft, and other possible sources of damage?
One of the most important features of a marina is location. You want a boat that is close enough to open waters so you can enjoy your voyage quickly, but you also want some measure of protection from open waters. Another thing to consider as well is traffic; do you have to wait a long time to get in and out of your slip?
Great staff members are what makes a marina run efficiently. You want to make sure the marina personnel care about your enjoyment and wellbeing in addition to ensuring the safety and operation of your boat.
Fuel service is an important aspect of any marina. You want to make sure that your marina offers fuel services and that it’s easy to access. In addition, some marinas now offer ethanol-free fuel, which is much better for your engine than reformulated fuels.
Living on a boat is not always luxurious, but a marina can make it more comfortable. Make sure you check out the restroom and shower facilities. Does your marina have a restaurant, pool, salon, and entertainment options?
