Um, maybe so, maybe no.

The marine industry is pretty diversified. Depending on the marina and your actual job, you may find that it's pretty similar to working at the Exxon station although in a more picturesque setting. But you'll never have to empty a holding tank at an Exxon station.

Smaller marinas may only provide dockage or dockage and fuel. Bigger marinas may expose you to repair services, boat brokerages, etc.
