Complete Marina on 60 acres with Development Potential in Hampton, VA

Unique opportunity to purchase an existing, fully operational income-producing marina business on a captivating piece of Virginia coastline! Bell Isle Marina was founded in 1990 on the southern bank of the Back River, in the Fox Hill and Grandview communities, and just minutes away from the Chesapeake Bay’s finest beaches, fishing, and sailing. The mouth of the Back River is flanked by two nature preserves as it enters the Bay, with Grandview Nature Preserve to the south, and Plum Tree Island National Wildlife Refuge to the north. This ensures the beautiful scenic views will remain part of the allure of this area. The sale offering includes 60 acres total, with approximately 12 acres of water and 48 acres of land. Part of the land is wetlands, and future development potential exists with 20 acres of high land currently zoned R33. Preliminary layouts envision 20-25 individual residences or 35-40 townhomes that could be built and sold in the future, without changing or affecting operations at the marina. The theme of the future community could be woven into the existing natural beauty and boating life of the marina, potentially offering water access, piers, and recreational boating for new residents. The future value is limited only by the builder’s imagination.
