Offering Superior Expertise and Experience in the Marina Industry
THE MARINA SPECIALISTS
The Marina Specialists is considered to be the Premier Marina Broker in the entire United States and Caribbean. It has a national reputation for the marketing of marinas all over the country. It is staffed by competent people who have decades of experience in the industry. The Marina Specialists are called on frequently by financial institutions and appraisers for current market information, and assistance in establishing the facilities market value.
Over the past 4 decades, the Marina Specialists has focused on gathering and analyzing information on thousands of marinas, boat yards, and waterfront facilities across the country. Our multiple databases enable us to seek out properties on a regular basis that will fit the investment strategy and goals of buyers in a quick and efficient manner with confidence in the information we provide. Consultants, appraisers, chain buyers, and institutional investors, as well as financial institutions, call on us for consultations, advice, and assistance from all over the country. As a result of our assessments, we can honestly say that no other Marina Broker has the depth, knowledge or ability to market a marina for its maximum sales price and return that we do, because we know marinas and the marina market better than anyone!
Our company has listed and sold over 600 marinas throughout the nation and abroad.
HOW DO WE DO IT... The Marina Specialists do not take short cuts. We collect preliminary information on the marina and conduct a site visit. Once the site visit is completed we evaluate all aspects of the property and its operation before recommending a sale price to our clients. Our experiences have shown us that many marina owners/operators often undervalue their property and rarely get the Maximum Sale Value of their facility. Using our experience we provide not only accurate information as to its present performance, but also its future potential. Our Marketing Support Team then puts into motion a national sales campaign calling on all aspects of our unique marketing tools... advertising program, all marine trade magazines, direct mail campaigns to potential buyers and sellers on both a Regional and National level, advertise the marina's merits in the media and trade publications, and sending e-mail blasts to the thousands in our National Marina Industry database. Using these unique marketing techniques, we are able to reach out to investors from all over the U.S. We have a large database of buyers from all over the country, asking us to find a Marina for them.
If you are thinking of buying or selling a marina, you need to call THE MARINA SPECIALISTS!
In order to meet the challenges of the current financial market and assist our clients further, GRG established a division in 2007 called EZ Sailing Finance. This financial service, along with our prominence in the National Marina Market and our Chief Executive, Louis D. Grasso's experience in banking, has enabled us to complete financing for the sale or refinancing of multiple marinas and commercial properties throughout the United States.
