Marina Management

TPG MARINAS DELIVERS A UNIQUE HOLISTIC APPROACH TO THE MARINA AND RESORTS INDUSTRY.

By combining decades of real estate and property management experience with powerful user-friendly booking engines and a highly efficient tech-enabled operating platform, TPG Marinas delivers an unmatched value proposition for marina management services to its guests while creating value for its investment partners. 

At its core, the business of marina management thrives on hospitality, whether it’s through the convenience of reserving the perfect slip for vessels of any size, or securing an upscale overnight stay on land, TPG Marinas deploys best-in-class service, technology and hospitality to exceed guest expectations. 

TPG Marinas is a family-owned business that seeks to acquire, manage and own high quality marinas and marina resorts that will be assets to their communities for generations to come. TPG Marinas focuses on value-add marinas, and marina-resorts which combine well-located marina assets with resort hotels or upland property that can accommodate services such as bars, restaurants, and swimming pools to create an enhanced experience to its guests, driving higher occupancy and rates. 

Our aim is to create a nationally recognized portfolio of nautically anchored hospitality assets and standalone marinas that will attract repeat business and be the obvious first choice for new customers. 

Our Unique Management Platform and Competitive Advantage

TPG Marinas benefits from the exceptional hospitality management experience of TPG Hotels and resorts. Whereas most marina owners are not hotel managers, and similarly, most hotel managers do not understand marinas, we see tremendous benefits and synergies by combining the two disciplines into an integrated management platform, bringing the same guest-centric customer service of a hotelier to the docks while the customer traffic from the marinas will help to support a more extensive amenity base than a boutique resort hotel might otherwise offer.

Sophisticated Technology Implementation

Marinas have historically been low-tech operations, relying on phone or radio communications between marina and customer, best-guess management of inventory, and a significant volume of cash transactions. New digital technology is available to make the marina property management more efficient, scalable, and institutional. TPG Marinas works closely with Dockwa, the leader in web-based marina reservations and PMS applications, which enables improved revenue management and operational efficiency over prior ownership. 

With over 30 years of experience in the real estate, hospitality, and private equity sectors, the principals of TPG Marinas have an extensive and diverse network of owners, investors, brokers, lenders, and advisors that will allow us to identify off-market opportunities.
