Letter from Your General Manager
Dear Boaters and Friends,
I have had the privilege of being your manager at Glade Marina for almost 4 years. I have been able to meet most of you and have grown to know some of you very well. Over these past few years, there have been many things that I have wished Glade could develop, or initiate; well, now it seems we will have the ability to make some of those things happen. I am so proud to announce the acquisition of Glade Marina by Suntex Marinas. With the change in ownership, Glade will see more amenities, better docks, better services for you, our customers, and many more new and positive changes to make your boating experience the best it can be.
We have some big plans for 2013 including 58 covered slips ranging in sizes from 28′-50′. Each 50′ slip will include dual 50 amp electrical service, a 120 square foot covered patio, and a new integrated and more effective wave attenuator. Complimentary WiFi internet access and expanded launch services are other amenities Glade customers can expect to see in the near future. If anyone is interested in reserving one of these new slips please let me know.All current Glade personnel you have come to know will remain the same, andeveryone here, customers and staff alike, can look forward to beneficial changes andimprovements in the coming seasons. I hope that once you see some of these improvements, you too will be as excited as we are about the new parent company. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please feel free to give us a call at the office at 770-975-7000.
