Atlantic Marina Holdings, which owns seven marinas in two US states, is changing its name and rebranding its Florida properties to Port 32 Marinas.

Following completion of redevelopment at two marinas, Port 32 will be among the largest slip owners in Florida, with some 2,600 berths. Its current portfolio includes four high-profile Florida marinas – PGA Marina in Palm Beach Gardens, Ft Lauderdale Boatyard & Marina, Tierra Verde Marina Resort just south of St Petersburg and recently-acquired Tampa Harbour in Tampa.

“While we are Florida-focused, as we believe the state is the true centre of boating in the US, we chose ‘32’ because it means something to us. It is the latitude for Charleston, where our company originated and our headquarters is located,” Joe Miller, Port 32’s managing principal, said in a company statement.

All four existing Florida marinas are renamed as part of the rebranding, and Port 32 management continues to operate three existing marina properties in Charleston, South Carolina under the original names of Ripley Light Drystack, Shem Creek Marina, and the Harborage at Ashley Marina.
