The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty was the first Maine real estate company to create a division specializing in the sale of Bed & Breakfast inns in 1986. Lodging specialists with our firm must have experience not only in the brokerage of these properties but also in the ownership and hands on running of an inn. Today, many are calling themselves lodging specialists - make sure to ask for credentials. We have them.
Boothbay Harbor, ME
“The Carousel Marina” is mix of several related, ancillary sub-enterprises situated on the ever-busy Boothbay Harbor waterfront in Midcoast Maine. The “Midcoast Maine Region” is a stretch of coastline that extends along US Route 1 from Brunswick to Belfast. Some of the larger Midcoast Maine communities include Brunswick, Bath, Rockport, Rockland, Camden and Belfast. The coastline is made up of a series of finger-like peninsulas extending out into the Gulf of Maine and the Atlantic Ocean.
The marina complex is a boating service facility (tie-ups, fueling, and pump-outs… but no boat repairs), berthing/mooring accommodations, a popular restaurant/tavern (“The Whale’s Tale”), a ship’s chandlery for purchasing marine supplies, a yacht club, and a reservable special events function center. The marina also provides oceanside lodging accommodations for tired mariners. There is a good-sized owner’s apartment overlooking the harbor. It’s usually the next northern berthing facility for the mega yachts cruising beyond Portland to Camden and Bar Harbor. It is a very popular Midcoast Maine port of call for boaters of all size and its three-season tavern is a well-patronized eatery and gathering spot for both locals and tourists!
Tourism, naval-megayacht shipbuilding and fishing have long been the primary generators of the local economy. The population is comfortably-moderate, friendly and umbilical to the ocean.
The waterfront facility is sited on a little over a half an acre with 325 feet of shore frontage on Boothbay Harbor. The two-story structure has 24,106 SF of space, is well-maintained and in very good condition. Taxes are about $10,000 a year. There are 55 berths and 33 moorings. The reader should read the “Broker Profile” which is an openable-attachment to the listing presentation containing important information.
