There’s just something about being out on the lake. Your boat gently rocking in the waves, friends and family gathered in the cockpit talking about all the fun they had skiing and the sun setting gently on the horizon.
What makes that idea even more appealing is when the boat is on Lake Travis, known for its clear water and diverse beauty. Want to make the dream even better? Dock the boat in a marina that is practically in your own backyard, meaning you can spend more time in the water rather than driving to your boat.
It’s no dream for residents of The Hollows because NorthShore Marina is located right in the community. And it’s one of the best in Texas.
NorthShore Marina is for serious boaters. With a depth of nearly 160 feet, NorthShore Marina offers year-round access despite sometimes drastic water level changes. The marina has 268 slips — some as long as 80 feet — and up to 100 personal watercraft ports. The floating slips have high roofs and walkways are 8 feet wide, meaning there is plenty of room to load and unload and easily walk around other boaters. Docks can also be outfitted with optional Hydrohoist lifts. Two trams are in operation, taking you from the topside parking lot to the docks below.
And while many boatowners gather on their boats and dock areas for impromptu parties, there is a spacious common area furnished with a propane grill, lounge chairs and television for additional relaxation.
Not a boat owner? No problem, as NorthShore Marina rents a variety of watercraft, from party barges for your Devil’s Cove outings to houseboats, pontoons, ski boats, jet skis and paddleboards.
Anyone wanting to get out on Lake Travis can find just about all they need at the NorthShore Marina ships store. There are sweet and savory snacks, beer, soda, ice and more. Sunscreen, sunglasses and water toys are available, as well as paper goods and allergy medication. Four fuel pumps mean shorter wait times for gas.
It’s for all of these reasons — and the attentive service — that NorthShore Marina was named Texas Marina of the Year in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2016.
NorthShore Marina and a stunning Lake Travis location combine to make The Hollows a boat lover’s paradise. See what homes are available now and soon, you’ll be “living it up lakeside,” too!
