Westrec Marinas acquired Aquamarina Lazy Days on Lake Lanier, in Buford Ga.

Lazy Days and Holiday Marina, which Westrec also owns, were owned and operated by the Beachem family, who built both facilities.

“We are delighted to be able to bring that legacy full circle and once again operate the two marinas under one ownership and management team,” Westrec Marinas president Bill Anderson said in a statement.

Lazy Days has 75 slips for boats to 125 feet and rack storage for 555 boats to 36 feet.

“With Lazy Days adjacent to Holiday, managing and operating both with one proven team will provide our customers and Lake Lanier boaters with the best possible service and amenities,” Westrec certified marina manager Alex Laidlaw said

Laidlaw said Westrec’s corporate investment plan includes additions and improvements at Lazy Days.
