Q?

What are the main advantages of using a Dry Stack Marina?

A.

There are many benefits to boat owners who use our Dry Stack Marina facility. It saves money - Boaters are not spending money on additional gas, launch fees, or any upkeep associated with using a boat trailer.
As the boat is not sitting in the water, it does not have to be cleaned from the marine growth or bottom painted every year.
Dry Stacking keeps your boat in better shape. Overall, it assures the boat owner of a higher resell value.
Environmentally friendly - Boat storage helps reduce the amount of contact time between pesticide-containing bottom paints and the water.
