The World’s First SMART Marina –
Opening Spring 2019!

You’ve invested a lot in your boat and need a safe place for it. Now, you don’t have to settle for an ordinary marina! Gulf Star Marina is building the world’s first SMART marine storage facility, featuring innovative A.S.A.R. technology. This high-tech system will enable us to put your boat in the water in just seven minutes. No more waiting to enjoy a day on the water – Get the instant gratification, and peace of mind, you’ve been looking for at Gulf Star Marina. Additionally, we provide concierge level service at every turn! That includes soap wash top side, engine flush, rub rail scrub down, service request noted, and cover.

Why Invest in Boat Storage?

The top three reasons to invest in boat storage are safety and enjoyment. We’ve all heard the horror stories…. Boats kept out in the open are a target for criminals and deteriorate from daily exposure to heat, sun and other natural elements. Metal boat houses are blown apart by hurricanes, taking your boat down with them. At Gulf Star Marina, we’re using concrete tilt-wall construction that is able to withstand hurricane winds up to 200 mph to provide the utmost security from crime, sun and weather threats.

Plus, a top-quality marina makes boating more enjoyable. At Gulf Star Marina, we provide fast concierge level service, putting your boat in the water fully gassed, stocked with goodies, and ready to enjoy. When you return, hop out, and we’ll take care of cleanup and maintenance before returning it to a safe place. Feel more like a captain than the crew!
