Deer Harbor

Deer Harbor Marina was our fifth marina project. We purchased an existing marina which was in a state of complete disrepair. A unique feature of this facility was our concept to develop a tourist, short term stay marina.  The project was constructed on Department of Natural Resource Land which added layers of difficulty in regards to financing on DNR lease land, defined uses allowed and not allowed as well as navigating through the DNR's concept of value as mandated by the state. 

Other amenities added as a part of the redevelopment were a fuel dock, an enhanced dock store and shower/laundry facilities to service our marina customers during their short stays. Other businesses we housed were whale watching tour boats, kayak rentals and tours, a loading dock for a neighboring non-ferried island and a local farmers market. The finished project was a first class destination marina facility which will serve generations to come.
