Safe Harbor acquires Florida marina for $6.9 million


Safe Harbor Marinas has acquired the deep-water marina at One Particular Harbour Margaritaville on Anna Maria Sound in Florida for $6.9 million. The facility has 55 wet slips and 128 dry slips, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

The marina on Perico Island was sold by Minto Communities, which is developing the 220-acre Habour Isle community with Margaritaville Holdings in a partnership with musician Jimmy Buffett.

“The leasing program is going well, and demand has been high for the marina’s dry dock spaces and wet slips,” Minto president Mike Belmont told the paper before the facility’s opening in February. “Many One Particular Harbour and Harbour Isles residents are avid boaters who also will make active use of the new marina.”

The slips can handle boats up to 45 feet. The dry-stack facility is designed for vessels up to 42 feet.

Dallas-based Safe Harbor also owns the nearby Regatta Pointe Marina in Palmetto and the Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda as well as more than 80 other marinas around the country.
