Florida Retirement Communities with Marinas

Florida Retirement Communities with Marinas

Looking to retire and take to the the high seas off the Florida coast?

Aye aye, captain, we got you covered!

Step 1: find a community with a marina. The good news is there are plenty to choose from in The Sunshine State, many offering waterfront property with private boat docks, while others have communal docks, marinas, yacht clubs, and boat repair services. If you’re an avid boater who wants nothing more than to ensconce yourself in a year-round boating lifestyle, here are some of the top Florida retirement communities with marinas. 

 

Esplanade Lake Club- Fort Myers, FL

A tropical setting on one of Southwest Florida’s largest lakes, heading to the marina in this Florida retirement community is enough to make every day feel like a vacation. The marina includes a boat ramp, dry storage, lakefront promenade, recreational dock, and options for individual resident boat docks. Residents also enjoy a large swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, a sun deck, cabanas, and a poolside bar & grille—and year-round opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding.
