Sailors Wharf Yacht Yard, St. Petersburg, Florida. Un-priced. Possible Owner financing.

1421 Bay Street South East St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Sailors Wharf Yacht Yard

An Iconic First Class Yacht Yard with Great Development Upside in the Heart of St. Petersburg, Florida.

The property sits on a unique waterfront overlooking Salt Creek and Bayboro Harbor 1.5 miles from downtown St. Peter in the Salt Creek Marine District. It’s around 2.5 acres with one main parcel and a subsidiary smaller parcel half a block away. It’s permitted for 24 units per acre.

The Yacht Yard

The owners of Sailors Wharf Yacht Yard had a vision in 1978 to build a boat yard that would be known for dependable service and quality craftsmanship. Sailors Wharf became the boat yard of choice for customers. The yard is located in the heart of the marine research at Bayboro Harbor. With Sailors Wharf main focus being on service, it uses the ABYC Standard, which has ensured the highest standards in the marine industry. These standards have been implemented for the quality and safety issues their customers depend on. The owners have focused on serving customers’ requirements by  investing in new equipment, a clean facility, and having one of the Florida West Coast’s best Yacht Yards.

The Development Opportunity

Sailors Wharf Yacht Yard and Development Site offers a unique waterfront location for a developer who would benefit from the cash flow, reputation and zoning upside while implementing a development project and getting approval for a residential and mixed use site. Due to recent changes in zoning and the City’s support to enhance the waterfront use and transform the area into a mixed use haven, developers are paying attention. Through its recent Adopted Master Plan, the city plans to connect the various existing local venues and assets by enhancing the waterfront and expanding its potential to encourage mixed use and residential projects.
