About Us

Ocean Yacht Marina is located just 1/2-mile south of mile marker zero on the Intracoastal Waterway on a 19 1/2 acre site in Portsmouth, Virginia, and just 15 minutes from the Norfolk/Virginia Beach International Airport. The new complex features a modern Marina with all of the amenities, an indoor dry storage building, a complete parts department, and for boats of all sizes, a service and repair facility second to none in Ocean Marine Yacht Center.

HISTORY

Ocean Marine was incorporated in 1989. Starting as a yacht repair company with an emphasis on power systems, Ocean Marine evolved into a full service facility. For twelve years, Ocean Marine serviced yachts up to 80′ at its Portsmouth location, and larger vessels at area facilities. From 1998 to present, Ocean Marine management planned the expansion now known as Ocean Marine Yacht Center. The Marina was opened in June of 2001, the Repair/Refit Yard was opened in April of 2002, and in June of 2002, the Dry Storage Facility was opened.

Ocean Marine Yacht Center is a state-of-the-art complex with an emphasis on customer service and quality assurance. Now, in 2015, Suntex Marinas has acquired the marina and given it a new name: Ocean Yacht Marina! We will continue to serve the same boats and guests with the utmost care and attention to detail, but now we have a new name!
