The marina review below is excerpted from Captains Mike and Mary Dicken’s, owners of SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Paradise Yachts, web blog. These various accounts are recorded when this well-oiled nautical team helps new boat owners deliver their recently purchased craft to home port, or undertake yacht deliveries themselves for the same purpose. Wow, talk about service AFTER the sale – it doesn’t get any better than this. You will be seeing LOTS of excerpts from Captains Mike and Mary’s web blogs here on the SSECN. This is superb info, and we are glad to have it available to our readers.
The particular collection of blog entries from which the article below is excerpted is an account of a cruise from Fort Lauderdale, FL to Fernandina Beach, FL, assisting the buyers of a 42′ Novatec used trawler. You can read this entire set of blog entries at http://www.paradiseyachtsales.blogspot.com/2013/03/assisting-customers-service-after-sale_26.html.
Halifax Harbor Marina lies along the AICW’s western flank, in the heart of downtown Daytona Beach. Not only is this a mammoth marina, but any number of dining and entertainment opportunities are found within easy walking distance. Just be sure to call ahead, particularly doing spring or fall transient season, as the available transient slips tend to fill quickly.
We are staying at Halifax Harbor Marina which is a beautiful facility. Halifax Harbor Marina in Daytona Beach is a first class facility with several clean bath houses, 7-8 foot depths along side floating docks, locked bath houses and docks and a West Marine on site. Many restaurants are within a block away.
