The World’s First SMART Marina – Opening 2020!
Best Boating Anywhere!
Southwest Florida is one of the world’s best boating destinations because of its weather and calm west coast waters. Run all the way to Tampa Bay and back, up the Caloosahatchee River to downtown Fort Myers, or all the way across the state through the Intercoastal Waterway. The area also offers world-class fishing, both inshore (Snook and Redfish) and offshore (Grouper and Snapper – just to name a few).

The World’s First SMART Marina –
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 ASAR 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, maintenance 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!
What is ASAR Technology
Gulf Star Marina is proud to be the world’s first marina to use ASAR technology! ASAR is a revolutionary automated storage and retrieval system. This advanced technology – with components designed by Siemens – enables us to provide faster, more reliable boat storage and delivery. Watch the video to see how it works!
