You will soon discover that our friendly staff members are knowledgeable professionals. Whether you’re looking for advice, inquiring about service work, or just wanting to know where to find the best crab cake, we strive to make your stay with us as enjoyable and carefree as possible.
Water and 15 amp electric are available within 50’ of storage spaces. Water is available except during the winter months.
It’s not something you often think about; however, the level of care given to your boat during your haulout and storage is very important. Our seasoned professionals will treat your boat like it was their own. We take every precaution including, making sure our travel lift straps are clean so your gelcoat isn’t scratched, thoroughly power washing your bottom to insure your spring painting is as easy as possible, to blocking and cradling your boat correctly in order to prevent structural damage.
Sailboats are placed in adjustable steel cradles instead of jack stands thus providing a level of stability that has safely weathered storms for 72 years!
Your boat will not be multi-stacked, giving you the ability to launch your boat on any given scheduled week. Boats are also stored far enough apart to allow room to clean and wax your hull.
Customers without a slip can store your boat on land for up to six months, without additional charges.
Maryland Marina is a gated facility providing an extra level of security. All boat owners are provided with a gate card giving them 24 hour access to their boat.
A live web-cam is available on our website for our customers use.
We are also great for the do-it-yourself boater. While we do offer a comprehensive list of services, including peace-of-mind winterization packages, (see our Service page) you are welcome to work on your own boat or hire outside contractors. Pre-notification is required to allow people to board or work on your boat. Owners and contractors must adhere to all environmental rules and contractors are required to show proof of insurance.
Our marine store stocks over 3,500 aggressively discounted items for power and sail. We also have the ability to order just about any products you may need including your favorite West Marine branded items. Most orders are available for next day delivery with no commitment from you if you change your mind (see our Marine Supply page). Our convenient “One-Stop” shopping saves you time and money.
Our yearly and winter storage customers receive first option on all work scheduled with our service department.
To information on our Chesapeake Bay winter storage pricing, simply call or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the make, model, year and size of your boat.
PLEASE NOTE: It is not unusual for our storage lot to be filled to capacity during the winter.
In fairness to our slip holders and previous customers, they are provided the first option, through Mid-September, to reserve a dry storage space. In the interim, we maintain a “New Customer Inquiry” list. After mid-September, we begin to sequentially contact new customers to review availability and provide the opportunity to schedule their haul-out. If you would like to be added to this list, please contact us ASAP. Should you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
