Safe Harbor Marinas purchases five marinas

Publish date:

Safe Harbor Marinas has acquired five facilities, increasing its properties portfolio to 75. On October 9, Safe Harbor closed on Belle Maer Harbor on Lake St. Claire near Detroit. Six days later, Safe Harbor added four locations in Charleston, S.C. Terms were not disclosed.

“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Belle Maer Harbor into the Safe Harbor family,” said Jason Hogg, Safe Harbor senior vice president of investments, in a statement. “When paired with our property at Jefferson Beach, Belle Maer enables us to upgrade our member experience and host events like regional Safe Harbor rendezvous.”

In South Carolina, Safe Harbor acquired Charleston City Boatyard, The Bristol Marina, the Harborage at Ashley Fuel and Transient Dock and the Charleston City Marina.

Charleston City Marina has 19,000 feet of dock space, including a “megadock” that is the longest freestanding fuel dock on the East Coast. The Ashley Fuel Dock and Bristol Marina are nearby, with 160 wet slips and 38 drive-on docks. The City Boatyard on the Wando River offers repairs, restorations and a 75-ton Travelift.
