Popular Recreation Destination in Middle Tennessee Added to Growing Marina Portfolio

Tims Ford Marina
North Palm Beach, Fla. – Southern Marinas Holdings II, LLC, a partnership between a Denver-based private investment firm and Southern Marinas, LLC, announced that it has acquired Tims Ford Marina and Resort in Winchester, Tennessee.

Situated on a beautiful hilltop point overlooking Tims Ford Lake, Tims Ford Marina and Resort is the perfect lakeside retreat for boaters and guests. The full-service marina and resort are comprised of covered wet slips, RV sites with full utility hookup, lakeside cabin rentals, a fuel dock, a ship’s store, an extensive boat rental fleet, and a Freedom Boat Club, and is home to the popular, year-round restaurant, Hard Dock Café. The marina and resort are located adjacent to Tims Ford State Park, where visitors can enjoy swimming, hiking, camping, golfing, and fishing.

Southern Marinas’ roots trace back to Tennessee where more than 20 years ago, the company acquired its first marina. “To have an opportunity to return to the state where our company began is truly exciting,” said Gary Rosmarin, principal with Southern Marinas. “Tims Ford Marina and Resort is a beautiful facility, and we are looking forward to further enhancing the amenities, services, and overall experience for our members and guests.”

Tims Ford Marina and Resort is located on Tims Ford Lake, a popular, 10,700-acre lake that encompasses more than 265 miles of shoreline. The lake is known as one of the most picturesque, cleanest, and deepest lakes in Tennessee. It is also regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast.

This purchase marks Southern Marinas’ seventh acquisition in 2021. By year-end, the portfolio will include 11 marina and resort properties. For more information on Southern Marinas and its current portfolio, please contact or visit
