        We spent two nights at BSM recently. Very friendly staff and great fuel and dock prices. Unfortunately, the ship’s store was closed. I understand they are awaiting a new concessionaire or manager. Given the location of BSM, having no store is a great inconvenience. We paid $50 in round-trip cap fare to get to the “local” publix. BSM has a great water location, but they are in the middle of no where on land. A ship’s store or convenience store is critical at BSM in my opinion.

        Just wanted to post a note to let you know that we are still here and waiting for you to come by for a visit. Our marina still has the lowest fuel prices in the area and can accommodate boats up to 100ft. We have WiFi available for transient boaters as well as laundry facilities, pump outs, fuel and ice.
        For those who love basking in the sun we have a heated pool and hot tub available at no extra charge and also a fitness center with tennis courts. We also have beautiful grounds to walk and welcome pets.
        Golf is also available and we will transport you to and from the golf course.
        We have two restaurants on site at the marina and one at the golf course, all of which are open to the public.
        Feel free to visit our website at http://www.burntstoremarina.com and call us at 941-637-0083 for any questions or additional information.
        We wish you a safe and healthy [cruising] season and hope to see you at Burnt Store Marina.

      3. We stayed at Burnt Store for 2 months last year while doing the loop and liked it so much that we came back to spend a few months this past winter. We stayed in the north basin as it’s more residential for an extended period, although a short walk to the main basin which has the restaurant and boater’s pool and laundry facilities. It’s a nice stop!

        Not much has changed in the past year or so. It has a great fuel dock and pump-out station with excellent employees. We dine at the restaurant by boat and car and find the food generally good, but not superb. It offers a pretty environment for viewing the many docked boats.

        My name is Robbie Cannon and I live a few canals away from Barry’s yard, the Riviera Boatyard. I am very familiar with the boat yard business as I had one for 24 years in Charleston SC. I disagree with the people that talk about wrecked boats and oil etc. Barry has nothing like that going on there at all. The commercial guys that fish out of there are the nicest people that you would ever want to meet. The truth is that when guys like Barry are not able to stay in business anymore then these comments will all be about- I SURE WISH HE WAS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Currently there are no half sunken boats clogging the canal system…or leaking oil. Each vessel in the basin is in no way blocking the creek or canals. We have been renting a slip there for almost 2 years and have seen the manager of the place improve the site substantially. I am pleased with the location and the commercial fishermen docked there that I have met. They have been helpful and courteous. I have enjoyed the quiet and beauty at this location. I have docked in large marinas with a grid of concrete docks and am glad I have shade of a tree with birds nesting and ospreys raising their young. An occasional otter pops his head up as do dolphins and rays or a manatee. Sunsets are gorgeous. I have had the opportunity to do a number of watercolor paintings at this location.

        Barry has continued to work on cleaning up after Charlie. Most all of the old boats are gone.Environmental problems have been taken care of. The biggest complaints come from cultural differences. Those of us that want a old Florida style DIY marina and those that have moved in recently and want a modern yachty marine. It is still a good usable marina that takes care of the locals here. Part of the problem has been people bringing in old boats to work on and then abandoning them. It would also help if people would stop dropping off their unwanted cats there, knowing that Barry will take care of them.

        My experience with Fisherman’s Village Marina has been excellent. Ron Schebil and his staff have made our extended stay in Punta Gorda a memorable one. They have been helpful as well as just a joy to be around. I highly recommend a scheduled stay when you are passing through. The marina has everything a cruiser needs from a clean hot shower to a free bike rental! Not to mention the fabulous restaurants and specialty shopping available. Thank you to Ron and his staff for the great service!

        We were just at Fisherman’s Village for a weekend. The previous reviews of the facility are all from 2009. The concrete docks are in need of repairs. Lots of cracks and missing chunks everywhere. The people in the dock masters office were very nice and polite. The shower and crew facilities are very basic and old but were very clean. There was an issue with hot water in the shower. There was none. Several of the marina tenants told us it was a common problem during the heavy usage periods of the day. I don’t mean to make these items seem larger than they were. They were inconvenient but not major turn offs at all. There were two problems however that were issues to my wife and myself. The first was parking. We had brought a car down so we would have transportation once we got to Punta Gorda. There is no marina parking at all. You have to park in the general parking lot for Fisherman’s Village. We left during the day to go grocery shopping. Upon our return we had to park three parking lots away and carry our groceries back to the marina area. Our only saving grace was that it wasn’t raining and it wasn’t 90 deg. The other issue is the marina’s open dock policy. During the day the docks are open so anyone can come wandering onto the docks. This may not sound like a big deal but it is and really was to my wife. I asked a couple of the locals that kept their boat there full time why the gate on the dock was left open during the day and only closed at night. I was told that the shopping center general manager required the gate to be open. All in all the marina is ok at best. My wife and I were pretty disappointed.

        Fishermen’s Village Response:

        “We are sorry your recent visit did not meet your expectations and hopefully we will see you again in the future. We are a full time resort with a marina with 111 slips, 33 independently owned shops and 3 restaurants.

        We offer charter fishing and boat tours of the harbor as well as boat rentals. We do not charge for parking. Due to the resorts’ popularity we are very busy during season at midday, however, we do provide continuous shuttle service to and from the parking lots for our customers convenience including the marina.

        We now have new owners who have committed to making a significant investment in Fishermen’s Village, including the marina, which will address some of the issues in your post. Since you have left we have posted the finger piers as private which should eliminate the privacy issue you mentioned.

        We appreciate your comments and hope to see you again soon.

        Charlotte Harbor is now a great cruising destination, especially Punta Gorda. Laishley (City) Marina has great new floating docks and all the facilities for visiting boaters. A new restaurant is under construction, along with an interactive fountain and other attractions. Downtown Punta Gorda has recently undergone a major rebirth with much to see. Some of the town’s best restaurants are an easy walk, along with a West Marine and grocery. Fishermen’s Village is completely renovated. It has a new fuel dock, pump-out facility and other transient facilities. The mall has many shops to browse. This is one of the best marinas I have visited. Let me know if know of a better Dockmaster crew! You can anchor on the north or south side of the river and dingy into Fishermen’s Village or Laishley Marina. This is a great place to bring bikes because you can ride along the entire length of the Punta Gorda Waterfront and easily get around town on a bike. You won’t find a more boater-friendly environment!

        Fishermen’s Village Yacht Basin in Punta Gorda has won the prestigious Marina of the Year Award for 2008. This award is given out by the trade magazine Marina Dock Age.
        There are two awards given out each year in a competition of over 17,000 marinas in the nation. The two Marina of the Year awards are for marinas with over 250 slips and for those under 250 slips. Fishermen’s Village Yacht Basin qualified for the latter award.
        Jim Branch, Harbormaster, stated that the award is based on a number of criteria including facility improvements, marketing, environmental responsibility and customer satisfaction. The marina was severely damaged by Hurricane Charley and rebuilt and improved. He felt that their emphasis on customer satisfaction and service was a significant factor in winning the award.
        The marina caters to visiting boat clubs. They even offer a discount based on the number of boats in the group. I can tell you first hand that they go out of their way to make your visit special. They will try to solve even the smallest of problems.
        Adjacent to the marina is the resort which includes many specialty shops and numerous restaurants. The City of Punta Gorda is improving the entire waterfront with parks. The downtown area has many new shops and restaurants also.
        Be sure to put this on your cruising schedule. The Harbormaster can be reached at 941-575-3056 for reservations.

        This was our first slip after three years of cruising. We arrived exhausted and as beat up as our boat. Rusty and the entire staff bent over backwards to make our stay a great one. We were assigned a nice slip, with floating docks. It’s just a touch cheaper than Fisherman’s Village, with better entertainment options. They are close to all the big downtown events…we walked to concerts and festivals regularly. The showers and bathrooms were spotless, air conditioned, and always available.

        Don’t miss the Celtic Ray, an authentic Irish Public House. The place is surrounded by great live entertainment, and lovely walks abound.

        I would also check out Lashley marina in Punta Gorda. We were there in 2011 for 3 months and had a great stay. Located in the center of town with easy walk to lots of amenities. They are now a legal live a board marina. They also have great floating docks, and in the winter the fixed docks in Fisherman’s Village can be a challenge.

        We stayed at Laishley Park Municipal Marina in Punta Gorda and were very impressed with the facility and the dockmaster Rusty, and asst John, were very happy to help you in anyway they can. The facility is new, with floating docks, free pumpout and only $8/ft per week + a small charge for electricity. It is located right in front of the Crab House restaurant which has great food. For example, we loved the Ahi Tuna Salad!! The downtown area is in walking distance, only 2 blocks away, it was perfect to celebrate New Years with friends. There are free bicycles to use. There is a great 2 mile harborfront walk for you to stretch those legs! We highly recommend this marina!
