SVN | Safe Haven Advisors specializes in providing advisory services for marina and marine-related business transactions. The firm’s partners have deep knowledge of the marine industry accumulated through life-long experiences. Our professionals are dedicated to serving marina and marine related clients across in United States and Caribbean.

Marinas and marine properties are unique in that their value is derived from a combination of the real estate occupied and the underlying fundamentals of the business or businesses operated.  The sale of a marina is a hybrid between a commercial real estate sale and M&A-type business transaction. The value of most marine businesses requires a specialist understanding of the products and services offered coupled with the dynamics of the marine industry and its participants.

SVN | Safe Haven Advisors is the only national firm specialized in the Marine industry with the expertise to sell Marinas, Marine Properties, and Marine Businesses.
