Few businesses in Sarasota can boast serving the community for over 55 years, but that’s exactly what Siesta Key Marina can say. This stalwart marina has seen many changes over the past half century, but it continues to adapt and serve local boaters and fishing enthusiasts on Siesta Key.
The business is currently owned and managed by two families: the Dentici family who are well-known for their restaurants in the Sarasota area including Rico’s Pizza. The Eggbrecht family bring a lifetime of experience to the business as they also own and operate a local boatbuilding business, Andros Boatworks. Their dedication and commitment to first class service continue the long-established standards of excellence that locals have come to expect and trust at Siesta Key Marina.
