Community Redevelopment Agency

Boynton Harbor Marina
735 Casa Loma Blvd.

Located one-half mile south of the Boynton Inlet, the Boynton Harbor Marina offers a multitude of water activities including fishing charters, drift fishing, scuba diving charters, jet-ski rentals, boat rentals and waterfront dining. The marina was purchased by the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency in 2006 to ensure public access to Boynton Beach waterways and the preservation of the commercial marine industry.

The Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency completed Phase II construction on the new Harbor Master Building in December of 2014. The building consists of marina offices, public restrooms, and a ship store. The ship store is well stocked with drinks, snacks, bait, ice, and last minute boating items. Also, the marina is equipped with state-of-the-art gas and diesel dispensers. The new diesel dispensers are capable of pumping fuel at speeds of up to 60 gallons per minute.

The CRA plans to continue to redevelop the marina with Phase III a waterfront open space project consisting of green space and seating areas for people to wait to board their fishing or dive charters or to simply relax and watch the boats. The completion of the three Phases will create an attractive, functional economic driver that will offer tourism opportunities and enhance the visitor’s overall experience. The marina redevelopment project is an integral component of the Boynton Beach Downtown Master Plan.

The CRA continues to demonstrate the Agency’s willingness to invest into businesses in Boynton Beach.

Along with the Economic Development Programs are favorable land-use and zoning codes, quick site-plan and building permit approvals that are critical to the success of the project.
