Scott Burt, Managing Partner of North Lagoon Partners, LLC announced today that the company will
soon begin construction of the 'New Legacy Barn' at Pirates Cove Marina in Panama City Beach,
Florida. The new development will replace the Hurricane Michael destroyed 'Legacy Barn' of Pirates
Cove with a new 500 rack, indoor boat storage facility. The 'New Legacy Barn' will become one of
the largest indoor boat storage facilities in the Southeast with construction to begin later this year,
with a projected completion of date of late 2020.
"Our ownership group is mostly local. Those of us that live here, have and still are feeling the
devastating impact of Hurricane Michael in our personal lives, in our businesses and throughout our
community," said Burt. "We view this project as not only a tremendous opportunity for us to best
serve our boating customers, but also another positive investment into our area's recovery post
Also located at Pirate's Cove Marina is the 'Mega-Barn.' Built in 2016, the 425 rack storage building
is currently the largest in the Southeast and also sustained damage during Hurricane Michael.
Repairs have been completed and the marina has returned to being fully operational. When the
development of the 'New Legacy Barn' is completed, Pirate's Cove Marina will have the ability to
store more than 900 boats with even more rack space for today's high-powered center consoles up
to 52 feet in length.
The 'New Legacy Barn' will also be home to the exclusive 'Pontoon Alley.' This dedicated location in
the new facility will feature custom built racks for one of the fastest growing segments in the boating
market, luxury, high-speed tritoon boats as well as pontoon boats.
"Boating is more popular than ever," Said Burt. "Families are spending more time on the water.
Boats are bigger, more reliable and easier to operate, and when you add the convenience of our
'boat-concierge' type of service' it all leads to a better boating experience and ultimately to even
more boating, right here on Grand Lagoon."
Managed by Coastal Marina Management, Pirate's Cove Marina is located on Grand Lagoon in
Panama City Beach, Florida. The full service marina serves local boat owners from Destin, to 30A
and the local Panama City market, as well a wide-ranging regional customer base from Nashville,
Birmingham, Memphis and the entire Southeast. Boaters are drawn to Pirate's Cove Marina because
of the highly skilled staff, the ease of haul-in/haul out services, factory trained service professionals,
as well as amenities such as the pool, Tiki Bar, onsite restaurant and the convenient location of
being just moments from some of the world's best beaches and the Gulf of Mexico.
