Virginia is gradually reopening but marinas are already up and running but marinas like Yankee Point Marina in Lancaster, VA are already open as essential businesses.

Governor Ralph Northam addressed the commonwealth on Monday for his latest COVID-19 briefing as Virginia enters the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend in Phase 1 of his 'Forward Virginia' plan for reopening.

Northam says that reopening is a gradual process of lifting restrictions and does not mean that the pandemic is over, he reminded everyone and, if anything, said it's more important than ever as more places open up to keep following all recommendations.

Yankee Point Marina is  a full-service marina and boatyard offering slips, DIY yard, and full amenities in a beautiful location, full service and DIY boatyard with dry storage and hurricane haul-out.

They offer a tremendous variety of services including a Ship’s Store, Poolside Café, Windows on the Water Events Center, Catering Services for on and off-site events, extensive picnic areas under our 200-year-old Oaks, propane and charcoal grills, Pump Out, Non-Ethanol Gasoline and Diesel, rugged fixed docks, spacious slips from 20’ to 50’, a four-wheel drive remote-controlled 40-ton travel lift, high and dry, dry storage areas for short or long terms stays (all dry storage spaces are 20’ above MLW), clean restroom/shower facilities, ADA restrooms, an ADA boat access chair lift system and the friendliest staff.

This no-fee Do-It-Yourself Boatyard is one of the few of its kind in the area. The boatyard is staffed with true professionals most of whom have a minimum of 20 years of marine repair services so they can make ABYC certified repairs for just about any system that needs our attention.

They have one of the few remaining wooden boat shipwrights that can do anything from re-fastening an old wood boat to building a state of the art piece of ship’s cabinetry.

Their 65’ paint barn can put a new Awl Grip finish on any boat that will make it like new. We are a Yanmar Gold dealer and re-powering is no problem.

If it is a boat system, they can fix it, install it or restore it to like-new condition. They also provide free written estimates on any work, in fact, it is their policy to not provide verbal estimates.
