Mitchell Kalogridis, owner of the iconic Marker 37 Marina on North Padre Island, has entered into an agreement with Coastal Marina Management (CMM) to oversee the daily operations of the facility, as well as deliver his long-term vision to Marker 37 on what is now called "Sunset Island."

"In the past two years, we invested to not only improve the marina but to greatly enhance it. We built the new Boardwalk, the Tiki Bar, and the new conference room, as well as the Food Truck; all of which have been very well received by our customers. Now it's time to invest in the management of the marina to accelerate our growth and achieve what I have always envisioned here since I bought the property," said Kalogridis.

"CMM brings so much more than just marina management," Kalogridis added. "They know the Gulf Coast. They know the coastal lifestyle. They know fishing. They know fishing tournaments, and they know what is most important to our customers. That's the reason they manage some of the finest marinas on the Gulf Coast and around the Nation. Obviously, I'm excited to have them on board."

Scott Burt, the owner of Coastal Marina Management, shares the excitement of Kalogridis. "The moment I arrived at the Marina, I could immediately see why Mitchell was so excited about this project when we spoke on the phone. There are so many similarities with other clients, both here on the Gulf Coast, the East Coast, and all the way to St. Thomas. There is so much more here than just a marina for everyone to enjoy…and there's more to come!"

Marker 37 Marina, located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, has long been a destination for local fishermen because of their amenities: covered boat slips, boat launches, fuel dock, live bait, large covered fish cleaning station, abundant parking, and the historic Snoopy's Restaurant.

Over the past two years, Marker 37 undertook major renovations to not only serve their fishing customers, but to cater to anyone who enjoys a day on the water, whether they arrive by car or boat. A new Boardwalk, a large Event Stage, food and beverage service, a new retail store, an upgraded fuel dock to accommodate larger boats with all grades of fuel, live music, and multiple types of events were all added in the past year as part of a year-round activity plan for the property.

A few of the new and exciting things to do in the near future will be more retail shopping, and outdoor recreation sports, such as volleyball, shuffleboard, and pickle ball courts. They will be also adding more water-related activities, such as kayak rentals and kayak events, and much more.

Created by Burt in 2006, Coastal Marina Management is a forward-thinking company that offers effective and creative management solutions for today's waterfront marina developments. The company's mission is to be an active and passionate advocate of the boating lifestyle by delivering across-the-board service, dynamic marina management, innovative consulting for waterfront development and design, and exciting special events.

Kalogridis and Coastal Marina Management say "we look forward to guests joining us for family fun at Marker 37, Snoopy's, and Sunset Island!"
