Feedback from Owners

This is an exciting transition for Bay Marine and our entire team of over forty employees in the Midwest.  The marine industry has seen dramatic consolidation over the past several years and TopSide Marinas presented a unique opportunity for us to bring in a partner that has the knowledge, expertise, and capital to take our existing service, storage, and marina businesses to the next level while allowing our sales team to focus on growing our key brands throughout the Great Lakes market.

Fifteen years ago, we bought Hideaway and Cape Fair Marinas; we have spent those years developing them into the two nicest marinas on Table Rock Lake. Our family has been coming down to this lake for 50 years and we are very proud of the expansion and improvements made over the years. We always knew we would sell them at some point and wanted to make sure we found a company that would keep the family feel we created. We believe TopSide Marinas is just that company. We want to say thank you to everyone on the James River Arm in Table Rock Lake that has supported us over the years.

Rock Creek Marina Investors has proudly owned and operated Rock Creek Marina for the past 20+ years. It has been an honor for my wife, Tuila, and I, to work hand in hand with our marina team to serve the members and guests at Rock Creek Marina for the past 10+ years. We believe that TopSide Marinas is the right ownership group to continue providing excellent customer service and investing back into the property going forward. We believe that the members and guests at Rock Creek Marina are in good hands with TopSide Marinas.

April Plaza Marina is the longest-operating marina on Lake Conroe that has been the go-to destination among this strong boating community for nearly 50 years. We are proud to have been the top source for boaters to store their boats and maintain their property for more than 12 years. We look forward to the future of April Plaza Marina and know TopSide Marinas will continue to honor and build upon our family’s legacy by exerting strong values, commitment and providing a family-friendly atmosphere.

We were very impressed with Stephen and Jacob, the principals of TopSide. They acted with integrity and did everything they said they would. It was clear to Greg and me that they had the industry experience, operational plan, and necessary capital to close on the transaction.

When I decided to sell, I was excited to find a company like TopSide Marinas.  I quickly learned that we are very likeminded, and our values and beliefs aligned.  The Brashear family has always wanted to make a positive impact on the community, and we believe that TopSide Marinas will help continue that legacy.

Since 1933, three generations of the Larsen family have worked to provide the Lake Michigan boater with all of their boating needs, including quality service, excellent storage facilities, and a professional staff.  We were excited to find TopSide Marinas, and we quickly realized that their business practices and concern for quality customer service aligned with what three generations of the Larsen Family have provided for 89 years.  We were very impressed with Stephen and Jacob and the TopSide team.  We are confident that TopSide Marinas will continue with the same standards and commitment. We believe that our customers are in good hands.
