Brunswick Landing Marina is located in the heart of downtown Brunswick, Georgia. Just steps away are shops and restaurants that offer marina customers an exclusive 10% discount off their meals. The marina has a very active liveaboard community attracted by the never ending daily social activities, free laundry, free beer (yes, free beer), and free water on all the docks. Ample parking is available at the head of each dock which makes provisioning and unloading a breeze. Customers have started to call this marina the "Velcro Marina" because once you come, you never want to leave.
Good protection and easy in and out, but like another reviewer said keep a weather eye out for the crab trap buoys. Docks are decent, can't speak to the boatyard side of things, people and staff otherwise were generally friendly. Facilities were underwhelming. Good walk to the downtown area, which is old and makes it look like Brunswick was once a much busier and larger town. A good place to pull in to if bad weather is forecast, otherwise we pass it by.
Marina is fine if you are close to a shower. Do not use the shipyard for repairs. The workers were inexperienced and took way longer than normal to handle repairs at significant cost. The work was inferior.....I had to redo/correct much of it. While the boat was in the shipyard, we were charged daily marina costs for a slip. Any work that was sent out (e.g. shaft repair) was marked up 30% plus an hour labor to take it and an our labor to retrieve it. These people are "crooks". There is no nice way to describe it.
Brunswick Landing Marina is great. We stayed one more day. Facilities are clean, well taken care of. The people re happy and helpful.
My son & I were on a trip from Tampa to Baltimore & ran over an unmarked crabpot. Tore the Starboard strut trough the hull. The boatyard got us out of the water and on stands, cleaned and fixed the boat and got us back on our way in 6 days. Fast and solid repair.
Great marina and staff can't wait to return.
repair work at the yard, can be costly. They don't have highly trained people and no tools. They do, however, keep the clock running while they beat on stuff and talk on the cell phones. We will never use them again.
Fees are OK and docks appear to be well maintained. Facilities are well below standard. The "lounge" is a joke and should be called a closet. It has one washer and one dryer which look like they should have been replaced several years ago. The coast guard has a slip there. The coast guard employees are skate boarding all through the parking lot and down the dock. There is a sign which says no skate boarding but the harbor master says she is afraid to say anything. The "Old downtown" is a joke. Fine dining is subway and you can stroll past all the closed shops. The harbor master told us be sure to stay out of half the town because it is unsage and drew a huge X through it. A grocery is only a couple of miles away. We were told we would have to park our truck about two miles away in a public parking lot since it had a lance camper on it. This is not a marina for someone seeking a nice live aboard atmosphere. It may be a fair place to store a boat but the quality of life would be awful.
An excellent Marina. Monthly fees are "cheap". New floating docks. Well protected. No problems with wind and tide. Security is ever present- no need to worry about your boat shopuld you need to leave it. Staff is competent and attentive. Each pier ( @ 15 piers ) has a gazebo like structure for socializing, parking bicycles, and picknicking. This area also has a gas grill. Lounge is excellent, weekly get togethers ( bring a dish plus BYOB ). Great way to meet you neighbors. Bath and laundry facilities are excellent - free washers and dryers ( new and numerous. Close to town - 4th of May Cafe is excellent - you've got to try their tomato pie. If you need a place to relax and recoup - this is it.
