Jupiter, Fla.-based Jonathan's Landing Marina converted to a membership marina last fall and has sold out its 75 charter memberships in less than six months.

The remaining 195 memberships continue to sell at a rate of 10 to 12 per month, according to marina personnel.

Jonathan's Landing Marina membership program provides a public marina within an exclusive gated community. This investment opportunity includes hurricane-rated boat storage bays with luxury dining and social amenities. In addition, more than $2 million is being invested in the marina's expansion and improvement.

"We wanted to offer a marina membership program that took the boating lifestyle to an entirely new level of sophistication and exclusivity, without exorbitant fees," said Leon Moore, owner of the marina, in a statement.

When renovations are completed in the next few months, the marina will include an expanded dry storage facility for 270 boats up to 40 feet in length in a 140 mph wind-load rated building. It also will include courtesy docks for members’ use, a new ship’s store, a lounge overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, a private beach amenity, a swimming pool and the Marina Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar.

Moore has been in real estate and the marina business for more than 30 years. He owned three marinas in Seattle before moving to South Florida in 1995 when he purchased Jonathan's Landing.
