What Are the Benefits of Docking at California Yacht Marina?

Boat slips offer many advantages over traditional boat storage facilities. Storing your boat on or near the water makes it easier to board and offers the time-saving convenience of not having to transport your boat all the way from your home to the marina. Most boat slips are designed for easy navigation to accommodate novice boaters. When you rent a boat slip at one of our marinas, you guarantee you always have a secure place to dock your boat. You’ll also enjoy convenient access to our many modern amenities and recreational areas. We offer many types of boat slips, with daily and seasonal rates available to help you get the most bang for your buck. We offer month-to-month rental agreements, so you don’t have to worry about long-term contracts.
