Meet the Sail Harbor MatesSail Harbor Marina is owned and operated by Richard and Beverly Long, who purchased the business in 1985. Considering the Long’s were landlocked most of their lives, purchasing a marina was pretty unlikely. Dick was born and raised in Manhattan, Kansas and Beverly was born and raised in Coshocton, Ohio.
As weekend power boaters with a love for the water, the Long’s gave up moving from city to city with their jobs in corporate America and came to Savannah to enjoy a whole new way of life. When arriving at Sail Harbor Marina, they became the second powerboat “resident”, and since that time, the marina has grown to harbor many powerboats and sailboats side by side.
Olympics in Savannah?Did you know Sail Harbor Marina was the site of the 1996 Olympic sailing event? Transforming the marina to host this Olympic sailing event, and to meet the standards of the Olympic Committee and the International Sailing Federation involved a major transformation of the entire dock system.
Since that time, Sail Harbor has continued to maintain and build up their full-service boatyard, and is currently in the process of expanding their facility.
