Fun in the Sun and on the Waterway with Pensacola's Harbor View Marine

By Elisha Neubauer

When you live in the Pensacola area of Florida, known for being the Sunshine State, it's only natural to take to the waterways for recreation. Boating is a common pastime in the area, what with the Pensacola Pass and the Gulf so close, but not everyone can live directly on the water, leaving many with no option but to park their boat at a marina when it's not in use.

Harbor View Marine is one of the many marinas and harbors that are scattered across the area and able to provide this service to the local boating community. "Our marina is family owned and operated with access to Pensacola's beautiful waterway," explains Hellon Robinson, Product Manager for Harbor View Marine. "The Pensacola pass is only eight nautical miles from our marine making the gulf and great fishing close by." Robinson went on to tell us that, at Harbor View, they offer onsite repairs and maintenance on a variety of boat models, as well as a retail parts and accessory store, which is always fully stocked. "We own and operate these departments," she says.

Harbor View is also always open seven days a week, so you never have to worry. "Anytime you want to use your boat, let us know to launch it and we will have it ready to go when you arrive," Robinson says. With easy access to your boat, and service handled on-site, keeping your boat docked at Harbor View Marine helps to take some of the hassle out of ownership. "We make using your boat more pleasurable," states Robinson.

While Harbor View takes some of the stress out of boat ownership, they don't just cater to boat owners, but boat lovers as well. "Most of our customers own their boats, but we do offer boat rentals and a boat club," Robinson tells us. "Boat club is a great way to experience boating without the traditional costs associated with owning a boat." She smiles, stating the boat club is just one more way they help deliver great boating experiences to their customers.

So what makes boating such a draw to those living and playing in the Florida sun? "Boating is FUN!! I can't think of a better way to spend my day than out on the water," Robinson states excitedly. "It's a fantastic way to spend time with family and friends." For those on the water, the possibilities are endless- fishing, skiing, tubing, wake boarding, lounging in the sun, swimming, dolphin watching or even sunset watching. "I've met many great friends on the water. My favorite thing, though, is getting up early, and enjoying my coffee on the boat."

At Harbor View, those looking to get into boating, or those just wanting to change out their current boat model, have easy access to an expansive selection of boat models for sale. "We sell a variety of new and used boats," Robinson details. "We offer Nauticstar, Bayliner, Cypress Cay and Monterey Boat brands." During the summer, they have in-water boat shows which allow perusing customers a boat show atmosphere while shopping for their new addition and gives them the ability to actually go for a ride in the boats they're interested in.

"Whether you fish, ski or just play on the beach, the Pensacola water way has it all," Robinson proudly states. "And we, here at Harbor View Marine, are convenient to all aspects of boating."
