Marina Spotlights

Marina Spotlight: Brunswick Landing Marina

Brunswick Landing Marina

Close enough to catch the city’s downtown action yet secluded in a palm tree-lined protected basin for a peaceful escape, the family-owned, liveaboard-friendly, Brunswick Landing Marina is an ideal destination.

Situated just off Georgia’s East River, the spacious full-service marina boasts 373 wet slips, 100 dry slips with more than 3.5 miles of leasable dock space. The facility offers boat repair and concierge services, plus roaming security guards and gates at all 17 docks.

Southern hospitality is conveyed through the welcoming staff, and complimentary amenities are offered to guests such as laundry, lounges, a fitness center, and propane grills on every dock. All you can drink free beer and wine is offered three times per week at Happy Hour.

The marina recently expanded and doubled the size of their north bathhouse, adding four new bathrooms and showers as well as laundry centers in each bathroom. Marina management is currently working with the Army Corp of Engineers and Department of Natural Resources to construct a mooring ball field adjacent to the property to provide a lower cost option for visitors to the marina and the downtown area.

Brunswick Landing Marina

Conveniently located just 400 feet from the heart of downtown Brunswick, marina guests receive special perks including an exclusive 10% discount on downtown restaurants and merchants, plus access to new complimentary bikes that make for great transportation and sightseeing around town.

Less than a mile away, visit bars, restaurants and attractions such as year- round shows at the Historic Ritz Theatre. Enjoy small plates and rooftop views at 1509 Brunswick, sip tasty drinks at Tipsy McSways, feast on Italian cuisine at Arté Pizza or visit the prohibition-style speakeasy with a secret entrance at Reid’s Apothecary.

Brunswick’s Old Town Historic District hosts annual events such as the popular PorchFest, a free music festival where front porches across the neighborhood transform into live music stages for the day. No need to go far for socializing, as the marina also hosts events ranging from Cruisers’ Bingo to Yoga in the Yacht Club. The free three-times-per- week happy hours are a perfect opportunity to mingle with like-minded cruisers.

The facility is home to the Golden Isles Community Sailing Center where students take summer courses and race sailboats from the docks. Also, home to sailing teams from Brunswick High School, Glynn Academy and the College of Coastal Georgia, the pier makes for a great view watching race practice throughout the year.

“Brunswick Landing Marina offers a number of important and unique features, but what stands out the most to me is the community of boaters, marina team members and Brunswick businesses that all appreciate and care for one another the way we do,” says President Daren Pietsch. “We are constantly working collectively to make things better, and you just don’t see that everywhere.”
