Marina Sold: Flag Harbor Marine Service and Boatyard – Maryland



This is a unique opportunity to purchase Flag Harbor Marine Service, a long-running, profitable full service boatyard in an idyllic setting on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The facility offers land-side boat storage, haul and launch, as well as rigging, service and repair. The boatyard sits on approximately 9 fee simple acres that include the lift well and an adjacent wet slip, an enclosed workshop and two smaller buildings used as office and storage space. The 9 acres offers excess land that can be used to build a marina-view residence, or expand the land-side storage. The location offers a sheltered harbor within an hour’s drive from Washington DC and Annapolis MD.

In addition to the marine service facility, this offering includes 17 boat slips owned by the boatyard in the neighboring marina dockominium, Flag Harbor Yacht Haven. The boatyard rents out these 17 slips to generate additional income. The marina shares a basin with the boatyard, providing for the perfect synergistic relationship. The marina brings a built-in customer base for Flag Harbor Marine Service, while Flag Harbor Yacht Haven slip owners and renters get to enjoy the convenience of an on-site full service boatyard.
