We create a lifestyle of sustainable waterfront experiences by providing the best-in-class service of
marina management, residential, and boating opportunities in our communities.
We envision a legacy of waterfront communities, united by the “Windward Lifestyle,” whose passion stems from a sustainable waterfront experience.
The principals of Windward currently manage a substantial portfolio along the Eastern Seaboard which includes wet slips, interior and exterior dry storage racks, marina concierge service facilities, rental and residential properties, and culinary operations.
At St. Augustine Marine Center, Windward leases facilities and provides services to the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP). CBP houses its National Marine Training Center at this Windward property, the only CBP facility of its kind in the US. On an annual basis, more than one thousand marine agents from local, national and global jurisdictions receive training and recertification of skill sets. Our dedicated team of 25 also provides full refits of yachts up to 100 ft, along with a full-service prop shop, outboard engine full-service facility, and a painting operation where we are entrusted by the top US boat manufacturers in finishing their production line boats.
Across the San Sebastian River from the St. Augustine Marine Center, Windward Marina Group not only operates a Marina with 275 dry storage slips and 80 wet slips, but we are also a steward in sustainable placemaking. Our Planned Windward Town, designed by world-renowned DPZ, will be home to a new urban community that elegantly combines a working waterfront with best in class coastal living.
At Jacksonville Beach Marine, Windward Marina Group operates 350 dry slips, 250 wet slips, 50 lifts slips, boat sales, and marine services. We are excited to expand the Windward Lifestyle to Jax Beach by breaking ground on another placemaking project which will provide desirable amenities, catering to the community’s needs and enhancing our customer's experiences on the waterfront.
The Windward Group is proud to be a champion of new urbanism and development in the wake of climate change and sea-level rise. Windward is tackling issues surrounding urban sprawl and the carbon footprint associated with outdated development models. We are a proud partner and home to PelaBlue, currently, the only year-round supplier of MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified sustainable fresh fish in the US. The Windward Group continues to acquire best-in-class marinas and working waterfront locations to invoke the “Windward Lifestyle” across our Nation’s coasts. Our philosophy is to partner with people who share this same vision of enjoying and protecting one of the most dominant and important ecosystems on earth, our oceans.
