Suntex Marinas yesterday announced the acquisition of Garrison Bight Marina in Key West, Fla.

The marina has 20 wet slips and 213 dry slips and is located near hotels, restaurants and shopping. Suntex said it is the only full-service marina on the island with dry storage facilities. Amenities include a fuel dock, ship’s store, service department and a Thai restaurant with a deck overlooking the marina.

“This purchase provides Suntex with an excellent opportunity to expand upon our holdings in the Florida Keys and our footprint in the South Florida market,” investment partner David Filler said in a statement. “We are committed to offering our guests a best-in-class experience, and Garrison Bight has incredible potential.”

Filler added that Suntex will make a “significant investment in upgrades” to the marina.
