Marinalife, an online concierge service for boaters, announced the opening of online voting for its 2011 Best Marinas Contest.

Voting is open through Oct. 15 on its website, and Marinalife members and boaters are invited to vote for the Best Transient Marina and the Marina with the Best Customer Service.

In 2010 the Nantucket Boat Basin in Nantucket, Mass., was voted the Best Transient Marina. Haven Harbour Marina in Rock Hall, Md., was selected for Best Customer Service.

There are more than 8,600 marinas in the Marinalife database that cover the cruising areas of the United States, Canada, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Central America, and all are eligible to be selected as the 2011 Best Marinas.

The winning marinas will be recognized at the Marinalife booth at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, reviewed in the winter 2011-12 issue of Marinalife magazine, and will receive a marketing package valued at $2,000.
