Part of the marina company’s strategy is to offer rentals at all locations

Suntex Marina Investors LLC has gotten a step closer to its goal of offering rentals at its 46 locations with the addition of a fleet at Laurel Marina & Yacht Club in Tennessee.

The fleet at the marina, which is in the northeastern Tennessee mountains on South Holston Lake, includes recently-acquired pontoon boats.

The inclusion of boating opportunities for visitors who don’t own boats is part of Suntex’s campaign called Circle of Boating, which is designed to reach younger demographics. The company offers rentals, boat club opportunities, or both at around two dozen locations.

“Visitors that come to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of South Holston Lake now have a new and exciting way to enjoy the scenery,” said Laurel Marina general manager Ken Robinson in a statement. “With our premier fleet of boats and accessories available to rent, as well as a full-service marine center, Laurel Marina has everything you need to make your summer memorable.”

Boats are available for $275/full-day or $175/half-day, plus tax and gas.
