New marina to open in Arizona

Scorpion Bay Marina & Yacht Club will hold its grand opening this weekend.

Located on Lake Pleasant in Peoria, Ariz., the marina offers wet slips for boats to 60 feet and dry boat storage, as well as rentals, including pontoons, fishing boats, ski boats and kayaks. An electric tram takes guests and their gear from the parking lot to the dock.

There's also a restaurant and bar called Dillon's, with food, drinks and live music on the covered outdoor patio. Dillon's also operates a convenience store and deli.

The marina is managed by Skipper Marine Development (dba SkipperBud's), which owns or operates more than 15 marinas in Wisconsin, Illinois, Mississippi, Ohio and Florida.

"Scorpion Bay offers amenities and conveniences that are unmatched in the industry," said Cris McSparen, general manager of Scorpion Bay Marina & Yacht Club. "Our world-class marina is now fully operational and ready to serve all customers who we sincerely hope will become our friends."
