A marina (from Spanish[maˈɾina], Portuguese[maˈɾinɐ] and Italian[maˈriːna]: marina, "coast" or "shore") is a dock or basin with moorings and supplies for yachts and small boats.
A marina differs from a port in that a marina does not handle large passenger ships or cargo from freighters.
The word marina is also used for inland wharves on rivers and canals that are used exclusively by non-industrial pleasure craft such as canal narrowboats.
Marinas may be located along the banks of rivers connecting to lakes or seas and may be inland.
They are also located on coastal harbors (natural or man made) or coastal lagoons, either as stand alone facilities or within a port complex.
Facilities and services
A marina may have refueling, washing and repair facilities, marine and boat chandlers, stores and restaurants.
A marina may include ground facilities such as parking lots for vehicles and boat trailers. Slipways (or boat ramps) transfer a trailered boat into the water.
A marina may have a boat hoist well (a traveling crane) operated by service personnel.
A marina may provide in- or out-of-water boat storage.
