Harbortown Marina is a beautiful, full-service marina nestled in a naturally protected harbor in the Space Coast region of Florida. It is centrally located between the Indian and Banana rivers (ICW-Barge Canal) and has nearby, deep-water access to the Atlantic Ocean. The property features wet slips, covered and uncovered dry storage, a ship’s store, fuel dock, service department, on-site restaurant, heated pool, shower and laundry facilities, a dog park, and a member pavilion.
