Sinclair Marina reinvented, ready for grand opening

MILLEDGEVILLE — Lake Sinclair has a freshly renovated full service marina. Sinclair Marina started the transformation to pristine condition in 2011.

General Manager and Co-owner Jason Lattin traveled Florida studying various boat service facilities. Being active water enthusiasts and lake property owners, Lattin and his partner Mike saw the marina purchase as a great opportunity.

Boat storage, service and sales are taken care of at Sinclair Marina.

The facility remained open throughout the construction process to build the customer base. Personalized service in a clean, environmentally friendly location helps erase any negative notion towards boat ownership.

Lattin said little touches like popsicles and ice water when boaters pull up during the summer make an impression.

“We want to provide a new experience. Everybody has this attitude that the best day of your life is when you buy and sell your boat,” Lattin said. “I want to make sure we change that. We are trying to get out of that mindset that boats are a pain to own.”

Service Manager Randy Lowe said the Sinclair team strives to gain loyalty and trust before any work commences. Lowe wants the classic full service gas station mentality.

“One of the biggest things when the boat comes in is spending a lot of time with the customer getting to know how they enjoy the lake life. We make it a point to start the relationship. I've sold more boats and service just by the personalized atmosphere,” Lowe said.

Sinclair Marina is brand new. 

Dry stack storage holds up to 420 vessels from runabout to pontoon. 

Height adjustable racks avoid a one size fits all setup. An insulated roof prevents moisture drip, keeping the boats clean.

Accessory storage and a dedicated detailing area are additional perks.

The marina also includes Sinclair's only covered fuel docks. Floating concrete maintains a safe walking surface that sits at the proper level, making boat entry and exit easy.
