Minutes to the Cumberland National Seashore and Fort Clinch State Park; 13 miles of pristine beaches, 5 star resorts, and excellent golf courses are just a short drive away.
Located at mile 716, Fernandina Harbor Marina was the first marina built on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) in Florida. It is located in Fernandina Beach’s Downtown Historic District (which is on the National Register of Historic Places) where wide brick streets are lined with lanterns and boast many fine shops and restaurants. In juxtaposition, the Marina has undergone a complete modernization over the past few years, part of the community’s Waterfront Master Plan. The 6.2 million dollar renovation includes 65,000 cubic yards of dredging (in 2006 and 2009) providing ample draft for large vessels, new docks, bathhouse with laundry and showers, electrical and potable water amenities, fire suppression services and complete landscaping.
The Fernandina Harbor Marina is located directly on the ICW via a well marked, charted and easy-to-navigate Federal Shipping Channel six miles from the Atlantic. With 5,875 linear feet of dockage which provides 60 lineal side-tie “slips” and 20 moorings, a 25’ depth at mean low water beyond the attenuator and 6’ at inside slips allows yachts (up to 200’) and boats of all sizes to take advantage of the most modern of marinas while enjoying the amenities the community offers. A major airport is 35 minutes away and golf, tennis and the beach are adjacent to the property.
The marina welcomes local boaters and transient yachtsmen as well as fishing, sailing and sightseeing charters, and ferries. High season is includes spring (March-June) and autumn (September-December) during which approximately 95% of the marina is occupied. Low season offers great rates and includes the months of August, January and February. Annual occupancy for transients is 60-70% of the marina’s capacity. The marina also includes space for 30 boats with trailers and 10 live-aboards. Total land mass is 8-10 acres with five acres dedicated to the marina basin.
The marina is open from sunrise to sunset seven days a week. A full-time marina director, dockmaster, maintenance engineer and four assistant dockmasters ensure smooth operations for all marina guests and slip holders.
