about us

Lisa Taylor - President



  Welcome to West Shore Yacht Center. It’s my honor to welcome you to our family oriented marina.  I like to think of our Marina as boutique type of marina, small (80 Slips)

specialized (all lift slips) and very welcoming (you’re very happy when you arrive).

We take pride in the quality, care and continual maintenance of our boat lifts, docks and grounds to provide the best service and experience for you to enjoy your boat. You can also just spend the day here cooking out, steaming crabs or just lounging by the pool.

Being on the water has been my favorite place to be ever since I got my first inflatable boat at 6 years old. When I was in first grade my mother and I lived on a houseboat which I thought was such a cool adventure. In 5th grade I would row across the river to pick up my girlfriend just to go on a morning boat ride before school.

At 18 I bought my first performance boat, a  25’ WELLCRAFT that went 72 MPH. I so enjoyed the adventure of running up and down the bay in that boat. The best part of that was I always had my girlfriends with me and would be able to teach them how to run a boat… people would see us and always ask where’s the guy running the boat?? The best part “no guys necessary”. I have been boating my whole life even living on my own 50’ houseboat when I was 23 and had my own boat dealership.

The love of boating sure contributed to me purchasing this marina in 2000. I Had 2 young kids and wanted them to learn all they could about the fun and adventures boating and marina life offered. 

I’m proud to say that I’ve been able to turn the daily operations of the marina over to Jennifer, my very capable daughter who also loves to share the adventure and love of boating with all the happy people who are our slip customers.

Happy Boating

Some people would make a joke like "My middle name is Marina!" well, mine actually is. I grew up here at the marina, from helping build new piers, pumping gas at our old fuel dock, putting in lifts, and most importantly getting to know all of our slip customers. I love seeing people who have been here a long time, they have literally watched me grow up! I love hearing how people got into boating, and the different places they go on the weekends. I am the go-to person and point of contact, so anything you need or any questions you have, I'm your girl!

 Personally, I love to go fishing with my husband on our 25ft C-Hawk when I can sneak out on the weekends. I also love to wakeboard, knee board, tube, all things water sports! I'm a certified SCUBA diver, and my family and I love to travel the Exuma's in the Bahamas to hit up all the amazing dive spots there. When you see me here at the marina you will most likely see my two dogs, Bosun a Mini Goldendoodle, and Marina, a yellow lab, running around with me (I know, I'm killing the Marina name thing). 

I want to make sure every weekend you come here you feel like you're on a mini vacation. That's the feel we want to give our slip holders, a nice quiet place to enjoy their love of the water and boating!

I can't wait to upgrade your boating experience here at West Shore. 

See you soon!
