Oasis Marinas to begin management at Battery Park

Oasis Marinas, a marina management company, announced today that they have been awarded the management contract for Battery Park Marina in Sandusky, Ohio.

In August of 2020, the city commissioners agreed upon Marous Development Group taking acquisition of the business and lease hold rights to Battery Park Marina. Marous has selected Oasis Marinas, an Annapolis, Maryland based company with operations in the Great Lakes, to operate the marina.

Oasis Marinas was founded by a group of boaters with executive expertise in hospitality and technology who are dedicated to creating a high-quality experience. The Oasis Marinas portfolio is closing on nearly 40 amazing properties, 6,500 wet & dry slips under management, and hundreds of RV pads, spanning from the Northeast, the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac, down to the coast of Florida.

Battery Park serves as a premier property for Oasis Marinas being situated in Downtown Sandusky and adjacent from Cedar Point Amusement Park, one of the city’s landmarks. Adding to their growing portfolio, this will be the company’s 4th marina under management in the Great Lakes. Oasis Marinas will oversee the day-to-day slip and marina management activities, boat services, facilities and grounds maintenance, marketing activities, new development, and more at Battery Park as part of their agreement.

“Sandusky is a lively city and we couldn’t be happier to have Battery Park as Oasis Marinas fourth property on Lake Erie,” says Dan Cowens, CEO and Founder, Oasis Marinas. “We can’t wait to offer our services to the people of Battery Park and continue on the legacy of this amazing property.”

Marous has plans to upgrade and improve the facilities of Battery Park. Sandusky City commissioner, Eric Wobser, showed his appreciation and approval of Marous’s dedication to improving the community.

“We’re enthusiastic about the future of the site and Marous’ involvement based on our already great relationship and existing public-private partnership on other projects. We’re also excited to welcome Oasis Marinas to our city. Our community will benefit from its high-caliber management and operation of Sandusky’s Battery Park Marina.”
