Best Marina You've Ever Tied Up At?????

If I was designing a marina from scratch..........

what are some great ones to pattern after - which is the BEST MARINA you've ever visited and why -

What makes it the best - slip availability, great cruising grounds, ease of provisioning, best tiki bar, amenities, transportation.....????????

Maybe toss out the top 5 or 10 things you think makes a great marina for sailors.....

I'd really love to hear from all of you!

Eldean's Shipyard in Holland MI. Amazing grounds and facilities, but the channel sure does cause a problem with the big lake's surge.

Great facility...surrounded by monster boats....mansion houses...beach close by....great town with outstanding restaurants.... Schivonnis Market.....bimbos swabbing down mega yachts....you can just sit back and watch the show all day and night.

rikhall - yes, Yacht Clubs count...

This would be a marina designed from scratch to incorporate all that we as sailors want in an outstanding marina, yacht club, charter operation, sailing school, etc - all available in one location in a very desireable sailing/ cruising location....a facility that you might go out of your to visit.....what would we need to provide????

Throw out all your ideas

We love the free bus system on Mount Desert Island ME - we go to NE Harbour - pick up a mooring and can go anywhere on the island.

Sweet

EPYC is hospitable and quite convenient for sailing in & out of Glouscester, but is about five miles from town, next to impossible to find from the land side because of the narrow private roads, and gets a lot of wake slop from fishing draggers passing close by at full speed at all hours of the day and night. They have limited depth at dockside and no fuel. You should keep looking, Rik.

Arcachon, France
Port de plaisance - Port d'Arcachon
or

They'll take boats up to 30 meters long with 6m draft. Acres of slips, lit, with water and electricity. Full rigging and sailmaking facilities within walking distance. We don't have to mention restaurants or the availability of local wine and oysters...
