Sands Harbor Marina in Pompano Beach, Fla., was the 1,000th facility to use Dockwa’s marina management software.

Dockwa said it added its 1,000th “marina partner” to its list of marinas, yacht clubs and boatyards using its management software. The company said in a statement that the milestone means that more than 10 percent of U.S. marinas are now using Dockwa to help manage transient and long-term dockage. It added that it is now the “largest marina booking and contract management platform in the world.”

The company’s partners include Safe Harbor Marinas, Suntex Marinas and Westrec Marinas, as well as municipal harbors in St. Petersburg, Fla., Edgartown, Mass., and Chicago Harbors, and hundreds of independent marinas.

“On-boarding our 1,000th marina is significant to this team not just due to the sheer number of business owners and operators who recognize the value in what we’re building,” said Mike Melillo, Dockwa co-founder and CEO, in the statement. “This milestone is a credit to the marinas and boaters who’ve embraced this technology and worked with us to develop a better way to grow boating, for which we are immensely grateful.”

The company told Trade Only Today that five marinas joined on the last business day of the year, pushing the number of associated marinas to more than 1,000. They are:

• Sands Harbor Hotel and Marina, Pompano Beach, Fla.

• Swantown Marina, Olympia, Wash.

• Irish Boat Shop, Harbor Springs, Mich.

• Caloosa Cove Marina, Islamorada, Fla.

• Sea Isle Marina and Yachting Center, Miami
