Get the Simply Marinas Advantage
Simply Marinas has been involved in over 60 marine sites successful transactions nationwide. Our Simply Marinas team assists with various facets of marina transactions including sales, marketing, due diligence, valuation, financial analysis, financing, and permitting. We work to reposition the financials to present the net operating income or EBITDA by discussing with the owner the possible add-backs of non typical expenses and owner benefits. We work with sellers and buyers to provide a valuation and incorporate added-value potential and real estate value where applicable. We create a full marketing package and utilize our unique and aggressive national and international marketing for an outstanding outreach that gives marina owners the highest exposure. In addition to our existing relationships with key players in the industry and many exclusive buyers, we have a database of over 12,000 marine members compiled over the dozen years of marketing marinas and connecting with new buyers on an ongoing basis. Our aggressive marketing budget and strategies are unique to us and go far beyond traditional marketing. We pay for all marketing costs. We are private lenders, and have been successful in securing traditional financing for our deals. Our team members have outstanding credentials that have prepared them for the commitment, discipline and skills required in bringing a deal to a successful closing. They have been proven time and time again.
The team has been featured as “Deal Makers” in the Daily Business Review numerous times. Marine Dock Age Magazine has requested us to provide tips on buying and selling marinas as a national expert. The company has been selected as a finalist for the South Florida Commercial Real Estate Achievers and Leaders Award. The South Florida Business Journal has featured Simply Marinas as the national expert “making waves in the marine industry.” Our team has been recruited by marinas owners and consultants internationally for valuation, management efficiencies, and advice to get the marina or waterfront site ready for sale.
Our first involvement in marinas was as investors, lenders and facilitating permitting for a dry storage marina and getting additional equity investors. We launched our marina sales career due to our love for marinas and the waterfront and are fortunate to live on the water and enjoy yachting in South Florida. We are supporters and sponsors of marine associations. From the South Business Journal: “We can relate to what makes marinas work, from the docks and restaurants to the back office and ledgers,” says George Ash, Simply Marinas National Director. “We know where their values lie, can advise buyers how to create more value, and can help to create greater efficiencies through improved operations.” As a family-run business, clients are more than clients, They become friends often turning to the Ash family to resell the same property, in some cases two or three times.”
