A Win for Oasis Marinas and the Community: Gingerville Yachting Center Joins Oasis Family of Marinas


ANNAPOLIS, MD., April 5 2022 – On April 1, Gingerville Yachting Center, just off South River on picturesque Gingerville Creek in Edgewater, MD, will partner with Oasis Marinas to take the already impressive full-service marina to the next level. Partnering with quality marinas is Oasis’ trademark, and they are delighted to be assuming operational management of Gingerville Yachting Center.


“Gingerville Yachting Center is a significant property in the Oasis portfolio of first-rate marinas,” shares Ben Burns, Oasis’ Chief Marketing Officer. “We are especially pleased to be increasing our presence on the South River. Now our boaters have even more outstanding marina options in the immediate Chesapeake area.”


Ideally situated, the Gingerville Yachting Center is less than a 30-mile drive from Baltimore and Washington, DC. Their location on the South River is ideally suited for boaters of all types, affording easy access to some of the hottest fishing spots on the Chesapeake Bay as well as popular day trip destinations such as St. Michael’s, Cambridge and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Edgewater is truly the place to enjoy all that the land and sea have to offer. For that matter, the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), an ecological research campus, chose Edgewater to call home.


“Edgewater has a very active boating community,” says Dan Cowens, Oasis Marinas CEO. “It’s a town surrounded by water, with a rich maritime history, and endless opportunities for boating, fishing, and every kind of water sport. Edgewater takes its boating seriously and we work to live up to its standards, from our service department right down to our restrooms and showers.”


Gingerville Yachting Center caters to every breed off boater. Whether you’re a serious fisherman, world-class water skier, tow boat captain for the kids’ tube, or just looking for a quiet waterway to relax on for the day, you can do it all from this easily accessible location. Add that to their “customer first” philosophy and outstanding facilities, and you’ll understand why so many boaters keep coming back.
