Texas-based Suntex Marinas has acquired 11 marinas in the Loggerhead Marina portfolio. The facilities include 2,300 slips located throughout Florida.

Slips for yachts up to 120 feet in length are located in Palm Beach Gardens and Hollywood; slips for yachts up to 100 feet are located in South Lantana and Aventura. Other properties are in Daytona Beach, Vero Beach, Jupiter, Riviera Beach, Lantana, South Miami and St. Petersburg. Suntex Marinas is the largest marina operator in Florida, according to a company press release.

The company will maintain a philanthropic partnership with Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, a non-profit facility focused on ocean and sea turtle conservation. All Loggerhead marina locations are designated Clean Marinas under Florida’s Clean Marina Program.

“Not only are the Loggerhead properties the perfect complement to our existing marina portfolio, they share our deep and driving commitment to the environment and clean and responsible boating,” Mitchell E. Jones, principal of Suntex, said. “Every Loggerhead property participates in the Responsible Boating Initiative and we will apply those same practices to all of our Suntex locations.”

The Suntex portfolio includes 43 marinas in Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. For more information, visit www.suntex.com.
