Storage Service

At Ingman Marine, we understand how important it is to have secure, protective storage for your vessel. As a trusted, world class marina, Gasparilla Marina offers affordable, reliable storage options, catering to the needs of new boaters and seasoned sailors alike.

Dry Storage

To ensure your boat is safe and maintained even in harsh weather conditions, Gasparilla Marina provides two types of dry storage.

In Building A, the Marina provides covered dry storage, accommodating 500 vessels up to 30 feet in length. This can be a great budget friendly storage option, helping you to curb docking costs while keeping your boat protected. If you are looking to take your boat out on the water, be sure to call the Marina office at least one hour prior to your arrival. From here the forklift operations team will have your vessel out and ready to go. On your return, you can request the Gasparilla Marina’s team of professionals to flush out your vessel’s engine and rinse it down before returning it to its rack.

Building B is home to Gasparilla Marina’s fully enclosed indoor storage facility, catering to serious boaters who want peace of mind that their vessel is fully protected and secure while in storage. Here, you will find a pristine, state of the art facility that’s hurricane rated up to 130 mph, with individual bays for boats 30’ to 75’ upwards and one of the largest marine forklifts.

Wet Slip Storage

Located in a well-protected basin with a minimal tidal range, Gasparilla Marina offers both covered and uncovered wet slip storage. Here you will benefit from easy docking in their spacious fairways, a full-length fixed pier and plenty of dockside parking.

Boasting an MLW 7’ entrance, Gasparilla Marina is home to Placida Florida’s largest deep-water facility. The slips can store boats from 20’ up to 85’, with a variety of T-Heads available for larger vessels ranging up to 100’ in length. The covered slips can protect boats up to 40’ and offer extra protection from the elements. All slips that are 30’ and upwards have the option of a 30- & 50-amp electric service, alongside water hook-ups. Additionally, GM offers a Boat Lift program that allows boaters to request a boatlift be installed in their rented slip.

Service Center

Gasparilla Marina’s onsite Service Center is home to two repair companies, ready to tackle any repairs you need. The Service Center offers bottom painting, rigging, inboard, outboard and Diesel engine repair at a competitive rate.
