Marathon, Florida (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
The brand new, state-of-the art marina at Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club has put Marathon on the map as a premier fishing, yachting and family-friendly destination for boats up to 100 feet in length. Designed and managed by international marina expert Alain Giudice, the new marina offers everything modern boaters want, from spacious slips for today’s wider vessels to 30-, 50- and 100-amp power hook-ups, 24-hour security, marine concierge service, wireless Internet, on-site fuel dock, reliable utilities, and some of the most convenient docking options in South Florida.
“Many of the older marinas have had to adjust their offerings to accommodate the physical aspect of today’s vessels,” Giudice said of today’s larger and wider vessels. “We have the advantage of designing specifically for the modern boat and boater.”
Marina guests can stay for a day, a week or the whole season in Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club’s 74 slips, where they also have access to the resort’s pool, fitness center and the popular Lighthouse Grill bar and restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining and drinking options.
The adjacent Hyatt Place resort offers 125 brand new rooms and two picturesque event lawns with sweeping views of Florida Bay – and the iconic “faro blanco,” or white lighthouse, for which the resort was named.
With lawns and banquet rooms ideal for fishing tournament award banquets and captains’ meetings, as well as weddings and other group events, Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club offers the best of all worlds in the Florida Keys.
Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club’s convenient and protected location on Florida Bay is just a scenic mile or so from the legendary Seven-Mile Bridge with easy access to the legendary Atlantic fishing grounds.
“This marina is what Marathon has been missing when it comes to hosting world-class fishing tournaments,” said Capt. Stan Miles, who fished professionally out of Marathon for 15 years and has won tournaments all over the world. “And for fun, family outings, there’s fantastic fishing here in Florida Bay, right behind the marina, and you’ve got unparalleled tarpon fishing just a mile or so away under the Seven-Mile Bridge.”
Located at: Lat: 24 degrees 42.687' N Long: 81 degrees 06.209', Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club has everything today’s boaters want and more.
“With Faro Blanco, Marathon has found its missing piece,” said Capt. Miles.
