"Liveaboards" Now Welcome At Newport Dunes Marina
In Tough Economy, Marina Living Offers Resort Lifestyle at Affordable Prices.
- Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) August 10, 2011 - In difficult economic times, with record unemployment rates, an abysmal housing market, and the remnants of a recession still affecting day to day lives, Newport Dunes Resort and Marina, for the first time, is giving those with boats the chance to set up long-term residency. Without saddling themselves with astronomical monthly mortgage payments, liveaboards at the Newport Dunes Marina will be able to enjoy living in their watercrafts with all of the creature comforts of home while also benefitting from the amenities, conveniences and entertainment of a plush, beachside resort.
For those deciding to tether up long term at the pet friendly Newport Dunes Marina, the list of practical amenities is complete and comprehensive. Residents have access to laundry facilities, free ice, immaculate showers and consistently scoured restrooms, 24-hour security, a dock box for extra storage, available mailboxes, package delivery service and free Internet access. Additionally, liveaboards will have access to a fitness room, pool and Jacuzzi, and a large private parking lot with plenty of space for residents and their guests.
At Newport Dunes Resort, entertainment and fun is offered year-round. Throughout the summer, movies are shown Saturdays and Sundays on the beach and live "bands on the sand" can be heard every Saturday. In addition to the always-present water playground in the waveless swimming lagoon, families rent kayaks, sailboats, pedal boats, electric boats, bikes and golf carts. Residents and guests can use these rentals to explore the Back Bay as well as 110 acres of scenic property crisscrossed with walking paths and bike trails.
Those living aboard their boats also have exclusive access to an onsite restaurant, the critically acclaimed Back Bay Bistro, where they can enjoy a blackened salmon salad drizzled with pineapple vinaigrette or a USDA Prime filet mignon at a 20% discount, which is offered to Marina tenants.
"We are happy to invite those who have been displaced by a tough economy as well as those who have been enjoying the freedom of boat living, to set up residency at the Newport Dunes Marina," said Executive Vice President and General Manager Andrew Theodorou. "I'm sure new residents will thoroughly enjoy all the amenities both the Marina and Resort have to offer."
Newport Dunes Marina, located in Newport's Back Bay, boasts 450 boat slips that offer extra wide, concrete docks with single-loaded berths ranging in size from 22 to 46 feet with 60 foot end ties.
