Ocean City-based hospitality company Blue Water Monday announced the acquisition of two Delaware waterfront properties, Dewey Beach Yacht Club and Rehoboth Bay Marina.
Dewey Beach Yacht Club offers floating docks, boat lifts, wet slips and brand-new dry racks. Accommodation options include a two-bedroom family apartment overlooking Rehoboth Bay, as well as the opportunity to stay aboard a fully equipped houseboat, complete with a kitchen, bedrooms and a bathroom. The property has 120 wet slips, predominantly on floating docks, catering to vessels up to 30 feet in length, with boat lifts available for boats up to 26 feet.
Rehoboth Bay Marina provides slips equipped with running water, shore power and cable access. Visitors can also rent jet skis, or pontoons and take advantage of the full-service marina, which offers fishing poles, clam rakes, crab lines, nets, baits, buckets, baskets, tackle, and refreshments. Blue Water is enhancing the property to include fuel services, and laundry rooms on-site. Dewey Beach Yacht Club is partnering with nearby boat rental service Sea Rocket Delaware Beaches to give guests the widest selection of boats to enjoy. Sea Rocket is a subsidiary of Blue Water.
Blue Water began a $2 million renovation upon acquiring Dewey Beach Yacht Club. Further enhancements are already underway, including the addition of pontoon boats and Carolina Skiffs. A pool and clubhouse are scheduled for development in 2024, pending approvals.-
