Somers Cove Marina rated a top Boaters' Choice facility

Posted

CRISFIELD — Marinas.com has announced its Boaters’ Choice Awards for 2022 and for the third year in a row Somers Cove Marina is top rated.

This year for the first time it joined the Elite Fleet tier of Boaters’ Choice marinas which represents marinas that went above and beyond to satisfy boaters, maintaining an average star rating of at least 4.7 out of 5 and receiving at least 10 reviews throughout the year.

Somers Cove first made the list in 2017 and has been on it since 2020. This is the sixth year of ranking marinas by Marinas.com which leverages its thousands of user reviews to determine award winners.

Any marina with three or more reviews in 2022, and an average rating of 4 stars or higher, received the accolade of being a 2022 Boaters’ Choice Marina.

In one 5-star review from November the boater called Somers Cove Marina “Fantastic in every way. Protected harbor. Nice floating docks for transients. Excellent customer service. Terrific amenities” and credited marina Executive Director Tom Schisler for taking the time “to give us a ride around town with a brief history of the area. So nice.”

Offering 515 slips, Somers Cove was among seven on the Boaters’ Choice list from Maryland. Regionally it was aligned with the Onancock Wharf & Marina, and Rock Hall Landing and Haven Harbor marinas both in Rock Hall — all Elite Fleet level honorees.

Marinas.com reviews a diverse range of marina businesses from private yacht clubs to public service yards from the west coast to its hometown of Newport, Rhode Island.

During December’s City Council meeting Mr. Schisler also announced that plans are in the works for a boat show next year on Sept. 22-24. He hopes to bring in some 300 vendors and attract thousands to Crisfield. Marina Manager Mary Taylor it will be the first of its kind that she knows of here.

“That just speaks to the marina,” said Mayor Darlene Taylor. “I’ve heard from everybody how great our marina is compared to others and that it’s a major asset.”
