  • Sunset Bay Marina (SBM) requires all balances to be paid in full prior to confirming a launch date.

  • We require at least 7 business days’ notice to schedule a launch date.
  • If service is requested, please allow at least two weeks’ notice for your requested launch date. SERVICE WILL NOT BE DONE SAME DAY.
  • An inspection will be done on the boat prior to splashing. If any damages are found and the owner is not present during launch, a call will be made immediately to the Owner(s). After the boat has left SBM we are no longer responsible for any damages.
  • Usage of a slip is allowed for 48 hours at no charge. After 48 hours, a charge of $35 a day will be incurred for slip usage. If the boat is not removed after 5 days, a fee of $50 a day will be incurred. Our daily transient slip fee is $35. Our slips are needed for slip paying customers.
