Safe Harbor Marinas acquires four California marinas

Safe Harbor Marinas acquired four California coastal marinas located between San Diego and the San Francisco Bay.

Safe Harbor Marinas acquired four California coastal marinas located between San Diego and the San Francisco Bay.

The acquisitions, which are part of the company’s ongoing effort to grow its inland and coastal portfolio, are Ballena Isle Marina, Ventura Isle Marina, Anacapa Isle Marina and Cabrillo Isle Marina.

Ballena Isle Marina is in Alameda in San Francisco Bay. The marina is host to the Ballena Bay Yacht Club, and a variety of yacht races originate from its naturally protected harbor.

Ventura Isle and Anacapa Isle Marinas are at the entrance to Channel Islands National Park and are near Los Angeles. Cabrillo Isle Marina is in San Diego.

Together, the four marinas contain nearly 1,900 slips.

“We are very excited to welcome these four properties into our portfolio,” Safe Harbor Marinas CEO Marshall Funk said in a statement. “Each of these marinas has a strong reputation and is a premier property in its own right. They make an excellent addition to the Safe Harbor network.”

Including the four California properties, Safe Harbor now owns and manages 35 marinas in 14 states.
