Grider Hill Marina Resort, KY, and Wisdom Dock Marina Resort, KY, were listed by Simply Marinas as a part of a SE Portfolio Marina Offering. Grider Hill, one of the largest marina resorts in KY, was a confidential offering and was not put on the market. Early in 2020, Simply Marinas announced the sale of Hales Bar Marina, TN as a part of this Portfolio. The challenge was that Grider Hill Marina Resort was a confidential offering. We reached out to individual clients in our network, one-on-one. Prospective buyers had to sign an NDA and show qualifications before the name of the asset was provided to them.
The two KY marinas closed in March, 2020 and were sold to Safe Harbor Marinas. Simply Marinas represented both parties. The two marina resorts are in close proximity to one of Safe Harbor’s largest marina assets, Jamestown Marina, KY.
“I worked with the Simply Marinas team as a buyer and was impressed by their commitment and expertise. I own multiple marinas and am familiar with the industry. We chose them to represent us in the sale of a 3 marina resorts portfolio. They are on top of their game with total dedication to results. Their commitment and dedication are exemplary. They have the finesse and expertise to effectively manage a marina transaction of any size and complexity. They understand the business and have the know-how to close a transaction. I can’t say enough on how capable and resourceful their team is.“
