Welcome to Swan Yacht Basin Marina - Rack and Launch Services
Our Rack and Launch Program was developed to accommodate a growing segment of the boating community that want quick access
to the water without having to suffer the Excedrin headaches that frequently go along with trailering their boats to public
Not only are these locations getting harder and harder to find, but the popular ones are utter madhouses during peak
season. For those who haven't attended such a theater, we strongly recommend packing a lunch or a lot of munchies to nibble
on while you wait in line to get your boat to a ramp.
As an alternative consideration, we currently have 65 inside racks suitable for boats less than 27 feet and
under 7500 lbs. We also have an additional 25 outside racks that we installed to provide service for those
occasional boaters who'd rather have their boats available at a marina rather than parked in their driveways or backyards.
If allowed! Some communities have these cute little ordinances, rules, that don't light up until after a person buys
a boat then learns that he can't store it on his own property.
The marina is open from 8 A.M. to 8 P.M., Tuesday through Sunday. Members of our Rack and Launch Program
generally have their boats in the water, ready to go, within fifteen minutes. For the early birds, a simple phone
call will make their boats available for either a midnight cruise or a pre dawn fishing trip any day of the week,
Since good customer service is our primary goal, the few guidelines we do have are flexible with a little mutual
- We have a standard of providing one (1) launch per day.
- However, depending on circumstances, that policy isn't written in stone.
- We set 7:30 P.M. as our cutoff time to guarantee removing a boat from the water and storing it for the night.
- Again, depending on circumstances, we don't always abide by that deadline.
- In short, we give more priority to mutual understandings than to rigid rules.
