The Fernandina Beach (Fla.) City Commission unanimously approved Westrec Marinas to manage and operate the Fernandina Harbor Marina.
"After a number of years renovating and adding new features to the marina, in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on [Nov. 6, 2009], we officially opened the Marina Welcome Center," Fernandina Beach mayor Susan Steger said in a statement.
"Having completed major enhancements to one of our city's greatest assets, we look forward to working with an experienced marina management team and benefiting from the sophisticated thinking that Westrec brings to our city marina," she added.
Located at Mile 716, Fernandina Harbor Marina was the first marina built on the Intracoastal Waterway in Florida. It is located in Fernandina Beach's downtown historic district, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
