Suntex Ventures with its subsidiary Suntex Marinas, the Dallas-based owner and operator of marina properties, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Tidewater Yacht Marina in Portsmouth, VA. Tidewater Yacht Marina is a full-service destination marina located at Mile Marker “0? on the Intracoastal Waterway, which is conveniently centered midway between New York and Florida. The marina includes 300 wet slips including a megayacht dock, a comprehensive marine service center, marine store, floating pool, and fuel dock. It is also home to the popular restaurant, 757 Crave on the Harbor, and yacht brokerage firm, North Point Yacht Sales.
“Tidewater has been a true landmark for yachts in Virginia as well as the rest of the East Coast for many years. Suntex will continue the legacy and will also add many more amenities to the property,” Ron TenEyck, VP of Operations of Suntex Marinas, said. “To better serve our customers we will be opening a new service center that will offer every type of service your yacht might need, along with a new fully-stocked marine store supported by West Marine. Customer service is not our catch phrase but our guarantee!”
Mr. John Muscarella has been chosen to lead the property as General Manager. John has been a significant part of the Tidewater team for over 27 years. He has a great understanding of the marina and excellent relationship with slip holders and transients alike. John will be supported by the rest of the talented Tidewater Yacht Marina team that will continue to diligently serve their customers’ needs. FULL STORY
