Marinalife is holding a sweepstakes in which the winner receives a "weekend experience" at the Nantucket Boat Basin in Massachusetts, which last year was voted the best transient marina in the company's Best Marina Contest.

The sweepstakes entry is free and the winner, plus three of their family or friends, will receive a prize valued at $5,000. The prize includes a two-night slip stay for one boat, four spa treatments and a fishing or sailing excursion.

"We are happy to support Nantucket Boat Basin in this sweepstakes. It's a great way for them to say 'thank you' to the boating community while also giving boaters a chance to experience Nantucket," Marinalife CEO Joy McPeters said in a statement.

Entries will be accepted through the end of February. Marinalife will announce the winner on March 4.
