Bradenton, Palmetto Boaters Fuel Up Quick & Easy at RPM

Regatta Pointe Marina is the simple solution for all those concerns.  Just pull up to the Ship Store dock at the marina’s river-side entrance.  Our friendly staff is right inside waiting to get you taken care and on your way. 

Dock and come inside for food, bait, ice, sunscreen and anything else you might need for a day on the water, including local charts and navigational tools.

Once you’re ready to go, you’ll enjoy quick access to the Manatee River, Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay without any bridges or other obstacles.

Live Aboard Powerboats Becoming Common

Powerboats are becoming the live aboard home to more and more boaters.  The live-aboard lifestyle enjoyed by sailors for generations isn’t just for sailors anymore.  The room aboard a 36’motorcraft is more than ample to support a spacious and homey life, particularly in the sedan/convertible crafts.

The aft cockpit is perfect for deck seating, and even has space for a grill or outdoor table. We’ve even seen people set up full entertainment centers in this space. From there you can utilize the foredeck for reading or relaxing. The cockpit is another space that can be decorated or customized make your nautical home comfortable whether you’re at the dock or heading out for a cruise.

The salon is a great a living room with a television and counter space. A savvy boater/chef will cook full meals in the galley.  Meanwhile you shouldn’t have any trouble getting a full to queen size bed in your stateroom, depending upon the size of your vessel. Give your head some minor decorations, and you’ve basically got an apartment on the water.

Whether you’re planning to live aboard a power or sailboat, you’re going to save a considerable amount of money and have more time to devote to boating than you ever imaged.  While a typical small waterfront apartment on the Florida Gulf Coast starts at around $1,500 per month.  Slip space at Regatta Pointe Marina is typically only a few hundred a month, and includes a luxurious boater’s lounge, a gym, a pool, boat house, the area’s top ship’s store and easy access to the open Gulf waters.
