Reviews for The Marina at Edison Ford
Great quiet stay, 2016-11-30
Captain: , Pensacola, FL (52)

Very low key marina with a quiet atmosphere. Dockmaster was very helpful. Wifi was practically useless, otherwise it would be a 5 star rating. Short walk to Publix and downtown. Great stay for two weeks!



Pleasant surprise, 2016-11-24
Captain: , Port Aransas, TX (512)

We stayed here 1 week in mid November at a weekly rate of $8/ft including electric - great value for the price. We moved here after a week at the city marina because they were preparing for a boat show and needed our slip. This is a small facility and somewhat exposed to boat wakes on the river. Staff is great, very helpful! Rest rooms / showers are new and very nice - 2 huge private rooms, so there can be a wait when the marina is busy. Single washer/dryer was expensive ($5 for 1 wash/dry load). Pump out is portable; we didn't use it but saw others so it appears to work. Edison Ford Winter Estates next door is not to be missed! Pinchers restaurant has a nice setting upstairs overlooking the marina and river. Food was above average and restaurant patrons were free to walk the docks. Publix is an easy walk; downtown is a long hike. Although not much grass on the marina property, we found plenty of places nearby to walk the dog.



Planed 2days, spent 2 months, 2016-11-17
Captain: , Nicholasville, Ky (40)

Had previously kept our cruising boats on the west coast of Fl , but now in the Bahamas. Just put 5300 miles under the Black Swans hull and wanted to catch up with old friends and do some routine maintenance, translated ,teak and compounding, before heading back to the Bahamas. Planed to stay a couple of days to find a place to stage, but this was such a jewel we stayed two months.

Carley Jones, the dockmaster, made us very welcome, shopping at Publics is walking distance. Downtown has lots of restaurants and activities, and Pinchers restaurant which is at the marina has exception food. (Try their coconut shrimp appetizer.). Callouts to Clay, one of the restaurants managers, chefs, Abel, our favorite server, and of course Elijah, our favorite dockhand.





Hidden in plain sight, 2016-09-02
Captain: , Naples Florida (156)

From the main channel, the marina channel is well marked with a protected entry. Carly, the dock manager could not be more helpful and accommodating. The docks are fixed and the basin is wide. Carly will arrange visits to the winter homes of Edison and Ford next door - and I mean next door. From her office you walk out a side door and you are on the property. Pinchers restaurant is on the top (3rd) floor of the building (with an elevator if needed) with an outside terrace and panoramic views of the river. Pinchers is a local seafood chain with stores around SW Florida including Key West. I have eaten in most of them and can say without hesitation that the food here is the best. The GM is also the executive chef and the taste and presentation cannot be faulted.
This is a marina that should not be passed by.



Top rated sea food restaurant , 2016-03-30
Captain: , YORKTOWN, VA (293)

The last time I was here this was a classy yacht club. But they couldn't afford to pay for the gorgeous building and went under. The new owners opened a very popular search food restaurant and the Marina fine. Not many boats but the dock master is first class. Publix shopping center is very close and right next door to a great museum. Legacy is half mile up river and in the center of town but more expensive. I have stayed at both and like this better because of the close shop center and great museum. This would be a 5 except for poor wifi.



A fine place to dock, 2016-02-10
Captain: , Pennells Marine, Inc., Deerfield Beach, Fl (30)

We stayed one night and spent the day enjoying the Edison and Ford Estates with all it had to offer. Dinner at Pinchers was very good, with a wonderful dill salmon special and crab grouper roll, plus caesar salads. Dockmaster took great care of us and boat was well protected from choppy waters and high winds.



Dockmaster is Great, 2016-02-06
Captain: , Holland, MI (32)

Carly meets you as you approach your slip, helps tie up boat and goes out of her way to provide information on area. Good electric. No laundry, but soon to be added. No pumpout that I could find. Boat rocked slightly when winds is from north because waves work their way through breakwall.



no longer FCYC, 2015-12-21
Captain: , Gulf Harbour, Fl (239)

Marina at Edison Ford bought the old Royal Palm Yacht Club building and marina. Pincher's seafood restaurant uses building. Docks are available for overnight and day use. Carly is the current Dockmaster as of Dec 2015.



Update January 2015, 2015-01-16
Captain: , Sarasota Fl (106)

Johnathan is no longer dockmaster but still a nice place. Good restaurant and Publix a very reasonable walk away.



Marina at Edison Ford reopen, 2014-03-14
Captain: , Stuart, FL (80)

we are currently docked at Legacy Harbor. However Pinchers restaurant at the marina at Edison Ford is now open and the marina as well. They hired a new dock master and the facilities appear clean and well organized. The restaurant said they accept dock and dine customers.



New Commodore, 2012-03-08
Captain: , Jupiter, FL (1236)

Has made a difference. Marv Market is really making this a wonderful club.



Good FCYC Club, 2011-10-22
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

FCYC close to everything downtown; 76' need 2 x 50 electric, works good. Nice clubhouse.



Nice FCYC club, 2011-03-22
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1134)

Close to down town, walk to Publix. Good dining room. Small marina well protected except from the NE. Helpful dock master, good power.



Excellent facilty, 2010-11-29
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Nice docks, very good restaurant. Next door to Edison and Ford estates - worthy of a visit. Very protected compared to being on the river



Nice Club, 2009-12-23
Captain: , Ft. Myers (376)

FCYC. Small basin is tough in North wind. Good showers. Fine food. We ate in the second floor bar area. Publix grocerys, liquor store, First Watch for breakfast and Subway one block away. Joe's Crab Shack is 4 blocks. Downtown Ft. Myers is about 15 blocks. No pool or tennis.



Panoramic Sunset, 2009-04-16
Captain: , Punta Gorda. FL (360)

Limited transient space for visiting reciprocal YC members.
Fine club conveniently located near Edison Estate, a short walk to Legacy & the Crab Shack, a longer walk to Ft Meyers Municipal.
Cozy bar overlooks the yacht basin.
Large high-ceilinged dining room with great sunset view, fine food & service.
