Significant Improvement at Pelican's Perch Marina and Boatyard
Family-Owned Marina Receives New Marine Travel Lift, Other Upgrades

Pensacola, FL—It's been a staple in the Pensacola boating scene for over 50 years and now Pelican's Perch Marina and Boatyard is even better, with more services to offer their legions of loyal boating clients. Located on Bayou Chico at the foot of the Barrancas Avenue Bridge, Pelican's Perch is considered one of the region's best weather-protected marinas but it's also a full-service boatyard, providing one-stop yacht service for a wide variety of repairs, annual maintenance and upgrades.

Among other improvements, Pelican's Perch has put in service a new 50-ton Marine Travel Lift, which will greatly improve their ability to quickly haul yachts of all types for service. The new lift features two-speed winch transmissions and full operator remote control to ensure the fastest and safest hauling in the area. Other services offered by Pelican's Perch include dockage, high quality bottom painting, referrals for a host of local contractors and a dedicated "do it yourself" yard complete with electricity and water hookups. They also offer an extensive hurricane haul-out plan for area boat owners, a very popular option over vessel relocation. It's located just a short run from Pensacola Pass on the west side of Bayou Chico and is easily accessible from either the Gulf of Mexico or Intracoastal Waterway.

Whether it's a pre-sale survey or a complete overhaul, the staff of Pelican's Perch is ready to help with some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality that's been a trademark of this family-owned marina for the last five decades.
