Today, the lakeside project includes the 1000+ modern slip marina, boat rental center, Marine Max on-the-water boat brokerage and a future outdoor boardwalk restaurant complex named Baywalk. It is also the exclusive water gateway and access to the larger work, live, play Sapphire Bay 1.5 billionresort development.
The aim to make the name Sapphire Bay Marina synonymous with great experiences on-the-water, to leverage that fun, excitement and even nostalgia and to re-energize people and rebuild the company one smile at a time. Daily the team strives to create the cleanest marina experience from the time you hit the parking lot, stop by the shipstore, visit the bathroom, to getting to your boat. Through the herculean effort of hundreds of employees, partners, customers and friends; the marina has constructed one of the finest inland, modern marinas and “marina districts” in the country.
“We may have modern slips with fiber-WIFI and all the amenities, but our goal is to deliver smiles on the water every day to members and visitor alike” says Mike Hall General Manager at SBM. “We are not only getting people from other lakes as well as new boat owners but families who substituted stretching to buy a lake house to add living areas right next to their boats. With the access only 20 minutes from home they are finding themselves entertaining friends and family continuously. We are getting lots of people who might have considered Cedar Creek Lake, Lake Cypress Springs or Lake Lewisville.
