SG Marina Secures Florida Assignment
SG Marina has been awarded the management for the full-service Titusville Municipal Marina in Titusville, Florida effective October 1, 2015. SG Marina is the marina management division of Siegel-Gallagher Management Company. Titusville is the third marina assignment and the first in the South. The City owned marina can accommodate 205 boats in a protected basin and 75 moorings in the mooring field just outside of the Marina entrance.
The Titusville City Council unanimously approved SG Marina July 28th after a nationwide bidding process. The marina is home to boaters year-round, as well as a popular stop for boaters cruising the Intracoastal Waterway. Located between Daytona and Cocoa Beach, Florida, the Marina is within easy sight of Cape Canaveral and the occasional rocket launches that still take place. The Titusville Municipal Marina will employ a staff of about 12.
“This is an important win for us as we continue to expand our efforts in public marina management in the South” says John Matheson, COO. “We are in negotiation with several other public marinas in Florida, Mississippi and New York and hope to have several more marina assignments within the next year.”
Plans for the Titusville Municipal Marina include marina operational improvements and cosmetic upgrades, new website and social media and initiating an aggressive marketing campaign to improve occupancy. The Marina has had most of the dockage replaced after a hurricane in 2006. Manatee, dolphin and other marine life are commonplace both inside and near the marina and is close to parks and nature preserves. The Titusville downtown is walking distance with shops and restaurants.
SG Marina now manages about 1,500 slips providing professional full service marina management services for publically owned marinas such as ship store retail operation, fuel, pump-out, boat storage, marketing, and marina construction/repairs.
