The Marina

Savannah Lakes Village is located right on Lake Thurmond, and residents have access to a state-of-the-art marina. The marina will enable you to have all the fun you possibly could have on the lake.


Boat Rentals

Boat rentals are a popular option at the marina. Pontoon and deck boats are available to rent for two hours all the way up to one week. Once you rent the boat, you can take off up and down the lake with ease. Pontoon boats are the most popular choice for those who want to spend a relaxing day on the lake. The pontoon boats have Bimini tops, chaise loungers, and rear swim platforms, so you can expect to have a fun and relaxing day on the water when you rent one of these. The deck boats also have Bimini tops. As a bonus, they have ski tow rings so that you can have quite an adventure on the water. Plus, they go up to 50 mph, so you can get an adrenaline rush when you’re on one of these boats. Get ready for a wild time when you take off on a deck boat.


Renting a boat at the marina is easy. You need to be 21 or over, have a driver’s license, and credit card. Fill out the paperwork and hop on your boat. Don’t forget to bring some snacks with you when you go for your ride. Also, make sure you bring your swimming gear along. That water is very tempting during hot days in South Carolina.


Slip Rentals

What if you have your own boat? You’ll want to park it at the marina, and that’s easy to do. Just rent a slip, and you can leave your boat at the marina. The marina has covered and uncovered slips available for rent. Choose from slips with 110 and metered electric and other services. Then, your boat will be ready to go every time you walk over to the marina. You can even purchase real estate right by the boat slips, so you’ll always be right next to your favorite toy.


Boating Supplies

The marina also has a supply store you can use to pick up your last-minute supplies. It has boating and recreational supplies available, and the friendly staff will help you make decisions if you’re having some trouble. They are always ready to give some boating advice and help you load up on the supplies you need before going out on Lake Thurmond. With this type of service, you will be able to enjoy the boating lifestyle with ease.
