One of the pleasures of boat ownership is sharing your experiences and camaraderie with other friends who own boats. Many boaters have boating friends scattered at marinas around the Chesapeake Bay. Our 2017 “Boat with Your Friends” offer provides an opportunity for your fleet of friends to boat from Maryland Marina and share discounted pricing on your wet slips.
How does the program work? Very simply, a 10% discount is added for each boat participating in your group. The cumulative discount is applied to the prorated balance of each boaters slip. Example of a fleet of 4.

( Revision 2/3/17 )
Our marina is located on scenic Frog Mortar Creek, a tributary of Middle River. This creek is the only hurricane hole on the western shore north of the Patapsco River as noted in Chesapeake Bay Magazine's "Guide to Cruising the Chesapeake Bay." This protected creek provides an extra margin of safety for the 360 slips that can accommodate vessels between 15 and 50 feet long with up to a 6 foot draft.
"Tips on Slips"
When shopping for an in water slip, many boaters ask for pricing based on the boat length. What they fail to consider is the size of the slip being quoted. There are two different approaches to renting slips. Some marina's routinely make a practice of renting a slip that is undersized for the boat that will be occupying it. For example, they will put a 30' boat on a 30' or smaller slip. Renting a "short slip" means the boat will protrude beyond the mooring piles into the navigable waterway. This approach puts the safety of the boater and boat at risk.
To avoid damage due to tidal fluctuations, boats should be tied 2' - 3' from the dock. Therefore, a proper fitting slip should exceed the boat length by at least this margin. A little less can be considered on floating docks. The width of the slip (distance between the mooring piles) and depth should also be taken into consideration. It is important that a boater be aware of the dimensions of their boat. The total length should include swim and anchor platforms. Knowing these dimensions will ultimately help you locate a proper fitting slip that will make you happy.
Maryland Marina is excited to announce the completion of the first of our new generation of piers. The new dock offers longer and wider finger piers and provides slip side pump-out for all boats. Each slip that is 30' and longer has its own dedicated utility pedestal that provides your choice of twin 30 amp or 50 amp electric as well as extended season potable water service. This new dock is finished with the finest quality wood decking known as Ipe. This dense, eco-friendly, Brazilian hardwood is splinter, scratch, fire, mold, pest, and weather resistant; therefore, making it as durable as it is beautiful. This flagship of Maryland Marina's third generation of piers will certainly appeal to the most discerning of boat owners who are looking for the best facilities at affordable rates.
