Suntex Marinas announced its second acquisition in a week with the purchase of CrossTimbers Marina, which is 18 miles north of Tulsa, Okla.
The property is in a deep‐water cove along the eastern shore of Skiatook Lake.
“This is an exciting period of growth for the Suntex family,” Suntex Marinas principal Chris Petty said in a statement. “We are very particular about the properties that we add to our portfolio and only consider high-quality resorts with a proven track record. Developed by Ron Howell and managed by Dustin Huff, CrossTimbers built up a healthy member base and has tremendous potential for expansion. It is a truly unique location for our members to visit and experience.”
Slip holders are provided with 24-hour gated security and private restrooms with a shower, and dock attendants are available to assist with fueling and pumpout services.
Day guests have access to a land-based marine store offering nautical sportswear and products, dining experience at the Lakeside Grill and boat rentals.
Suntex Marinas, which has interests in 12 states, has purchased the resort’s 517 slips, marine store, restaurant, dock shop, service building, trailer storage and rental cottages.
Suntex will continue to invest in the physical assets of the facility, as well as new rental boats, amenities and events. Upgrades to the marine store with increased merchandise are already planned, and management intends to add a Suntex Boat Club next season.
Suntex adds the CrossTimbers property to its current portfolio of 30 marinas in Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, Tennessee and St. Martin.
