This recognition welcomes the opportunity for new and repeat marina visitors to take advantage of the award-winning facility that the Saybrook Point Marina team prides themselves on each and every day,” marina manager Abbie McAllister said in a statement.

River Dunes offers boaters access to a protected harbor with amenities. Marinalife said employees are continuously going to great lengths to ensure that every person on board receives the highest-quality service.

“River Dunes is very proud and honored to receive this national award. We strive to cater to each and every marina visitor, in hopes that they leave with every intention to come back and enjoy a fabulous experience at our facility,” marketing manager Sherwood Crawford said in a statement.

Two-time winner Nantucket Boat Basin in Nantucket, Mass., was voted runner-up for Best Transient Marina. Dog River Marina in Mobile, Ala., was voted runner-up for Best Customer Service.
