MarinaSales LLC, a leading marina brokerage firm, will partner with Tranzon Auction Properties and affiliates as the exclusive provider of accelerated marketing and real estate disposition services for marine-related properties.

The new strategic alliance will provide auction and sales services for marina owners and other clients of MarinaSales throughout the United States.

"We anticipate a strong need for timely sales with market-driven pricing over the next 12 to 18 months," said Jed Harris, principal at MarinaSales, in a statement. "Continued credit tightening, an abundance of maturing debt and sustained challenges selling residential components will likely compel many marina property owners into aggressive selling positions."

Tranzon Auction Properties, with offices in Portland, Maine, the Boston metro area, and Buffalo, N.Y., is a full-service auction and real estate disposition company. The company is part of the Tranzon LLC network, one of the leading national real estate auction companies, with more than 30 offices throughout the United States.

Portland, Maine-based MarinaSales LLC provides marina-related brokerage services throughout the country.
