Simply Marinas Brokers Sale of Smugglers Cove

Simply Marinas represented the seller and buyer in the sale of Smugglers Cove Marina and Riverfront Campground, located on Craig’s Creek Lake just off the Ohio River in Warsaw, Kentucky.

This was a rare opportunity for the buyer to acquire an 89-slip marina with an 18-pad RV campground abutting the popular boating destination of the Ohio River. The land is owned in fee simple and is situated near Cincinnati, Louisville, and Indianapolis. Just north of the marina is Belterra Casino Resort, which features live entertainment, restaurants, and a golf course. The casino also provides a shuttle bus from the marina.

Additional income for the property comes from fuel sales, a ship’s store, a small boat rental fleet, a few on-site camper rentals, and small used boat brokerage. The marina enjoys full occupancy with a waitlist and floating cabins that are in high demand. The demand justifies expansion as well as adding to the boat rental fleet.
