About Us

Welcome to SD Marina! We are a team of boaters and former seafarers who have been fortunate enough to visit over 75 countries on board various boats and ships. Whether it’s the US, the Caribbean (our favorite), the Med, the Panama Canal, Suez Canal, Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, or the Strait of Malacca; we have done it all!

We share a passion for all things boating and being on the water and bring over 20 years of combined experience from the seven seas with topics ranging from boating, sailing, yachts, marinas, charters, repairs, gear, and more.

With an estimated 1 million nautical miles, countless adventures, and learnings, we have a lot to share with you.

We created SD Marina as a way to geek about everything we’ve learned and are still learning about boats. You’ll find in-depth articles covering the latest tips and equipment reviews on almost anything that floats, including motor boats, sailboats, and yachts.

Our mission is to inspire, educate and entertain boaters of every kind and to improve your enjoyment on the water.
