York River Yacht Haven Announces Spring Fling and Opening of Marine Store

York River Yacht Haven, a Suntex Marinas property, announced today their Spring Fling Event and Grand Opening celebration of their new Marine Store.  The festivities are scheduled for the weekend of April 4th-6th at their marina in Gloucester Point, Virginia.  All of the events scheduled throughout the weekend are free to the general public. The new Marine Store and full-service marina are conveniently located at 8109 Yacht Haven Road in Gloucester Point, VA.

Responding to the needs of local boaters and anglers, this newly re-designed store will cater to the needs of all recreational boaters.  With the support of West Marine, they will carry all of your necessary marine products such as oil, head deodorizer, environmentally friendly cleaning products, charts, fishing tackle, marine fasteners, polarized sunglasses, marine apparel and much more.

Martin Lucas, General Manager of York River Yacht Haven, said “the new store will be a key stopping point along the intercoastal waterway for those looking to re-provision their boats as they head south to warmer waters.” “Our goal is to take care of our customers from the moment they walk in that door. If we don’t have what they need on the shelf, we’ll get it delivered here the next day.”

That kind of customer service is what local boaters have come to expect from the new management at York River Yacht Haven.  Suntex Marinas added York River Yacht Haven to their network of marinas along the Eastern Seaboard in October of 2013.  With the change in ownership, York River Yacht Haven has seen more amenities and better services to better serve their customers and make the boating experience the best it can be.  The new management is also very excited to announce the new restaurant, York River Oyster Company.  The restaurant is currently finishing up construction that is giving the restaurant a whole new look and feel, and they will be opening this spring.  www.yorkriveroysterco.com
