Skipper Buds, Marina Seller
We own and manage multiple marinas. We have looked nationwide for the right marina broker and selected Simply Marinas due to their success and marketing advantage and presence everywhere in the industry. They brought us a buyer within two weeks before it went on the market. We listed and sold two marinas with them.

Hi Seas Marina, Oconto, WI
When I decided to sell my marina/boatyard. I initially started working with a local broker and was very disappointed. I then connected with George Ash and Simply Marinas and had a very positive experience. I felt their marketing efforts were excellent and they were highly professional, responsive, and very easy to work with. The marina has sold and I would definitely recommend Simply Marinas.

International Real Estate Investor
Simply Marinas has successfully acted as our broker in our recent acquisition of a 4.4 acre marine site on the Miami River. They completed a very complicated deal rather smoothly. We accepted the site due to their capable assistance in expediting all aspects of the transaction. They assisted us with permitting, tenants and securing all professional assistance we needed. They were available with the same consistency after the sale as well. Their performance is outstanding. We highly recommend Simply Marinas. We are identifying other acquisitions with the Simply Marinas team.

Highland Marina Resort, GA
I have wasted time with unqualified leads before I hired the Simply Marinas team. Once I signed with their team, I had a buyer within a week of the listing. My only obvious regret is that I didn’t go with the Simply Marinas team right out of the gate. Their pre-sale work to best position the marina for sale and strategic consultations made a big difference in the overall process. Their attention to detail and skills in managing the transactions in all phases of the process was very helpful. They have a truly professional team and get results fast.

Gilberts Resort and Marina, Key Largo, FL
I had worked with the Simply Marinas team on an exclusive basis due to their demonstrated ability to make a difference in every facet of the transaction. They also facilitated financing by securing a loan for us in first position and a second from the seller. Their commitment and looking at our best interest were exemplary. Their in-depth knowledge of marinas and their deal making ability impressed us. They assisted beyond the basic sale. They identified available new development opportunities and ways to increase value that made the difference for us. Most of all, we have been repeat clients due to the trust we have developed in their team.

Exclusive Buyer

Nestegg Marine, WI
At one point during my 21 year relationship with my full service marina client, I advised my client to bring in Dennis (Marina Management) to discuss the on-going management and operations of the marina. When my client was ready in 2017, I approached Dennis again on behalf of my client and we began to lay the critical groundwork for best success in the sale of my client’s lifetime business. Dennis quickly added value in the pre-sale process given his marina consulting experience. I also needed to help my client review lead broker and seller representation. After our due-diligence uncovered Michelle and Simply Marina’s (SM’s) experience, marketing reach in the industry and business model, the choice was clear to us. Because of my client’s personal reputation in the industry, we desired a most difficult model – market with strict confidentiality. Michelle was exceptionally creative in marketing the offering and sourcing many qualified, potential buyers. She and her team were highly responsive throughout the process, kept flexible with the concerns I had for my client and his family and worked diligently in negotiating deal terms highly acceptable to my client and their other professional advisors.

Marker 1 Marina, Dunedin, FL
The Simply Marinas team was instrumental in bringing a large number of extremely well qualified, experienced and deep pocketed buyers to the table in the sale of the Marker 1 Marina. This was a rather complex transaction for it had a condominium association, a Co-op association, and a master association, and two banks who were majority owners, not to mention an unknown scope of an environmental matters that had yet to be fully addressed. The Simply Marinas team’s knowledge, expertise and tremendous network of proven buyers proved to be of tremendous value to both banks in this sale. I recommend them highly. Thank you, Simply Marinas.
