Marinas and Water Rights

The firm has an established practice in representing marina developers and operators.  We have advised clients in the development of both wet and dry boat storage projects, including the development and operation of marinas on submerged lands leased from the State of Florida and local government.

We also assist these clients in securing necessary State, Federal, and local governmental approvals for their marina projects, and in preparing appropriate agreements and governing documents for the resulting developments.

Our typical services include advising clients through each stage of the marina development and operation, including researching and establishing our clients’ riparian rights, negotiating submerged land leases with the State of Florida, creating an appropriate mechanism for selling or leasing the slips, and closing on the sale or transfer of slips to the end-users.
