Marina Use FAQs

This page is designed to provide more information about Money Island Marina’s private use arrangement. If you have an unanswered question, please send it to tony@moneyislandmarina.com.

What are the benefits to me?

Money Island Marina’s private use policy limits use of the facility to a few individuals who financially support local environmental needs. Additionally, this policy: 1) makes boating, fishing and bayshore access easier, 2) you are treated as a VIP here with “owner” privileges, 3) ability to reserve equipment, bait and seafood in advance by phone or text message, 4) ability to use facilities for private or your supervised group use, 5) feel more comfortable from increased security knowing everyone here is a private guest.

 Why are we changing to a private use facility?

The most basic reason is that there are no longer enough people visiting Money Island who are able to support a public business.

The new system allows us to convert from a public to a private-use facility. The other advantages are: 1) better information about those who are on the site, 2) improved security, 3) more predictable revenue, 4) ability to offer more value and increase the number of services, 5) ability to bypass handling so many small  dollar transactions, 6) reduce waste of live and fresh baits, 7) increase overall usage of the facility, 8) reduce trash and damage because users feel connected to the facility, 9) create a positive community environment, 10) allow all of us at MIM to more easily know all of our users by name, 11) encourage referrals to new members, 12) avoid health department concerns and clarify that we are not a retail food establishment as defined by NJ law, 13) benefit from the positive public relations be offering something different and unique, 14) allows the marina manager to identify and welcome guests as membership prospects, 15) eases our sales tax compliance burden. We could go on, but you get the idea!

What are the charges?

User fees are determined based on actual costs at the time of service and are expected to vary.

What is the guest policy?

Guests are welcome and encouraged. We ask that guests fill in a Guest Registration Form. We anticipate that that there is no guest fee. The marina manager has full discretion on managing guest policies.
