Each year, Marina Dock Age honors two marinas (one small, less than 250 slips, and one large) with the Marina of the Year awards. Facilities from across the country complete detailed applications, competing in many different categories – business operations, renovations, advertising/marketing, community and industry involvement, special challenges and more.

Marina Dock Age will present additional awards in other categories, such as Facility Improvements, Advertising/Marketing, Environmental Responsibility and more. Awards will vary from year to year, depending on the qualified applicants. Marinas can win category awards each year, and former Marina of the Year winners are also eligible to win additional category awards every year.

This year’s award deadline is October 1. The award winners will be honored at the Docks Expo.
