Reefpoint Marina Success Boosting Local Businesses
As Reefpoint Marina’s boater occupancy increases, so does the need for indoor boat storage space. To satisfy this need, a former industrial building is being converted into heated boat storage, to allow for the increased demand that the area has seen. The owners of Racine Riverside Marine bought the vacant industrial property, formerly Greene Manufacturing Co., and by this fall it will become downtown Racine’s newest heated storage facility. Riverside President, Brad Strand praised SG Marina (Division of Siegel-Gallagher Management Company) for “running a ship-shape operation at Reefpoint in this, the first year of a five-year contract to manage Racine County’s marina. They’re running it like a country club now, and people are starting to bite,” says Strand.
Heated indoor boat storage is currently at capacity, and as boater interest continues to increase, so will the need for storage, as well as other boating-related facilities throughout the area.
