COVER STORY: SUNTEX MARINAS Revolutionising the boating experience Suntex Marinas, a leading US marina group based out of Dallas, Texas, prides itself on taking a new approach to the boating industry. The company specialises in developing properties at premier destinations which, on the surface, may appear to be no different to any other marinas. At the heart of the development, however, is a mission to revolutionise the boating experience. With a steadily growing portfolio that includes 29 full-service marinas, Suntex focuses on offering superior customer service; employing experienced managers and staff; making conscious contributions to the community; and sporting a general enthusiasm for creating memorable experiences on the water. Boating for all Suntex Marinas’ most important focus is to enhance overall customer experience at each of its marinas and it wants everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy time on the water. To achieve this, Suntex offers boat rentals and has also developed the Suntex Boat Club, which offers the perfect opportunity to introduce people who are not quite ready to commit to boat ownership to a range of boating and watersports options. The Club offers its members unlimited access to a fleet of top-of-the-range pontoon boats, ski boats and wakeboard boats, as well as complimentary use of tubes, skis and wakeboards. Currently, Suntex offers boat rentals at 16 of its marinas and has eight boat clubs. Several other operations are scheduled to open this year. Cost-conscious supplies A systems failure mars any day on the water and being forced to pay over the odds for essential parts at the marina store makes it worse. Suntex has worked to make its marina stores a first not last resort by establishing strong partnerships with vendors that enable it to offer the same pricing as for non-marine stores and catalogues. If a product is not available, knowledgeable staff will order it. Delivery is One of the best deep water marinas along the US east coast, 300-slip Tidewater Yacht Marina reserves 100 slips for transients and has six slips for vessels up to 130ft (40m) as well as T-dock positions. usually within 24 hours, depending on location, and shipping is free. In addition to offering a wide array of products, the stores offer regular events and workshops for guests and members to learn about the products and services available. Developing community The Suntex team is dedicated to the guiding principles of what the company refers to as ‘conscious capitalism’. Suntex places its focus on all stakeholders – guests, team members, service providers, the environment and the local community – not just shareholders. By developing the community in which it operates, Suntex has experienced rapid yet sustainable growth. “We embrace and support some amazing community programmes,” says Chris Petty, Suntex Marinas principal and head of operations. “For example, the Folds of Honor Foundation is our primary beneficiary. We began our nationwide campaign with Folds of Honor in 2012 on the 4th July weekend, which has become the annual kickoff weekend for Patriot Boating Days. The initiative encourages marinas, manufacturers, boat dealers, retailers and anyone participating in boating to make charitable contributions to the foundation during the month of July.” Suntex Marina Property Index Vessel Storage Property City State Sector Year Acquired Wet Dry Buoys Total Amelia Island Fernandina Beach FL Coastal 2010 146 224 0 370 Bay Pointe Quincy MA Coastal 2012 258 250 0 508 Canyon Lake Canyon Lake TX Inland 2009 451 53 0 504 Captain's Cove Garland TX Inland 2011 589 151 0 740 Chandler's Landing Rockwall TX Inland 2011 702 75 0 777 Cranes Mill Canyon Lake TX Inland 2009 250 0 0 250 Crosswater Austin TX Inland 2012 243 0 0 243 Dale Hollow State Park Burkesville KY Inland 2016 170 0 0 170 Eagle Mountain Fort Worth TX Inland 2012 369 100 0 469 Glade Acworth GA Inland 2012 327 201 0 528 Harbor One Fort Worth TX Inland 2012 267 0 0 267 Hurst Harbor Austin TX Inland 2012 272 216 0 488 Lake Country Fort Worth TX Inland 2012 285 340 0 625 Laurel Marina Bristol TN Inland 2016 520 0 0 520 Liberty Landing Jersey City NJ Coastal 2010 520 300 0 820 Little River Canton GA Inland 2014 151 318 0 469 Ocean Yacht Portsmouth VA Coastal 2015 112 275 0 387 Pier 25 Moorings New York City NY Coastal 2012 0 0 40 40 Pleasure Cove Pasadeba MD Coastal 2014 36 380 0 416 Port de Plaisance Sint Maarten N.A.
